Nearly 10,000 supporters joined Donald Trump in an arena in Duluth, Minnesota, Wednesday night, to attend a rally with the usual flair and bombast that the President always delivers.
It even featured full-on mockery of a protester sporting a man bun.
What MAGA rally would be complete, however, without some additional mockery of the ‘fake news’ media, including some shots at the President’s favorite foil, CNN?
But it was the crowd themselves who blasted CNN this time. Trump mentioned the fake news and his supporters engaged in a spontaneous, yet accurate, chant of “CNN sucks!”
After explaining to the crowd that the media could find a way to write negative stories about him even after “we’ve created 3.4 million new jobs since Election Day,” Trump launched the back and forth with his crowd.
“And I’ve said before if I would have said that to you during the campaign, those very dishonest people back there, the fake news. Very dishonest,” he said.
Then the crowd broke out with, “CNN sucks!”
Fortunately, the ‘great one,’ Mark Levin, ran that phrase through a fact-checker and came to this conclusion.
The crowd is right, CNN does suck https://t.co/hSqssQ23gi

CNN did, after all, garner four of the top ten coveted slots in the White House ‘Fake News Awards‘ in 2017.
They are home to quite possibly one of the more embarrassing journalists in the White House press pool, Jim Acosta.
And they did have to fire three employees, including an executive editor after they published a Russia-related article in 2017 that was later retracted.
“CNN SUCKS” just broke out in the rally.
“These are very dishonest people,” the president says, gesturing to … us.

Trump continued, hammering the media for covering the families who try entering the country illegally, but not the American families negatively impacted by those same illegals.
“The media never talks about the American victims of illegal immigration,” he chastised.
“They don’t bring cameras to interview the angel moms whose children were killed by criminal aliens who should have never been here in the first place. Not even close.
“I will always fight to protect American families,” Trump said to a rousing ovation.
