CNN Pulls the Plug on Trump Rally After Crowd Chants 'CNN Sucks'

President Trump kicked off his re-election campaign in Orlando, Florida, Tuesday night, but you would hardly have known it if you were tuning in to CNN or MSNBC.

"This was a defining moment in America history," Trump said of his decision to jump into the race in 2015. "Ask them right there," he said pointing to the media—and that’s when the crowd broke out into a “CNN sucks” chant.

Trump then continued to denounce the media.

"By the way, that is a lot of fake news back there," he said. "That’s a lot. That’s a lot. You know what I say? The amount of press we have tonight reminds me of the Academy Awards before it went political and their ratings went down the tubes. True. This was our chance to reclaim our government..."

That's when CNN’s John Berman cut in.  

"All right. We’ve been watching the president kick off his reelection bid. He’s been on stage for about six minutes. Within two minutes he did talk about the economy, within four minutes it was attacks on the media," he said. "He was talking about a bright, rosy future but then quickly reverted to some of the same themes he’s been talked about since he began running four years ago today."

MSNBC meanwhile didn’t even bother to air any of the speech.
