Over the course of the last several years the mainstream media has been anything but fair and balanced when it comes to covering presidential administrations, and this has left many people with an overall distaste for journalists, regardless of the network they are affiliated with.
One of the networks that gets ridiculed the most (rightly so) is CNN, as they have been one of the loudest when it comes to pushing “fake news” in an effort to paint conservatives as enemies of the state. Now, people don’t even want to take the time to answer their reporters’ questions, choosing to go a different route when the cameras are in their face.
President Donald Trump made his first appearance at a MAGA rally since January and, as expected, every major news outlet was there to cover it. One of the journalists tasked with speaking to Trump supporters was CNN’s Donnie O’Sullivan, who was promptly told to “go f*ck yourself” in a clip that is now going viral.
The man being interviewed clearly isn’t a fan of reporters, as the media continues to paint Republican voters as trying to divide the country, and he wasn’t about to pass up a chance to tell a guy from CNN what he thinks he needs to do with his time.

While there were many people who criticized the Trump supporter for using such colorful language, others seemed to be in agreement with the man.
You well deserve it.

While the response to O’Sullivan’s question would’ve left even the most seasoned of reporters rattled, it’s worth noting how the guy doesn’t skip a beat and proceeds to ask “so, are you from Ohio?” The guy is an absolute pro when it comes to taking it from people on the street.
Tens of thousands were in attendance at Trump’s “Save America” rally, leading many to believe that he’s going to continue traveling across the country and building support for his inevitable 2024 run for president. We can expect these types of interactions with the media to continue as long as CNN keeps showing up.
