Eric Bolling Says Crowd at Trump Rally ‘Right and Wrong’: CNN Doesn’t Suck… ‘Jim Acosta Sucks’

CRTV’s Eric Bolling had a fresh take on the heckling of Jim Acosta at a Trump rally: the crowd of jeerers was both right and wrong.

Acosta, CNN’s chief White House correspondent, was shouted down by a crowd of angry Trump supporters at the president’s rally in Tampa, Florida Tuesday night, as he tried to do a live shot. The crowd chanted “CNN sucks,” but that didn’t stop the CNN reporter from trying to chat with the Trump supporters. He even took selfies with them, despite being deemed their number one enemy.

Appearing on Newsmax TV Wednesday, Eric Bolling said: “that group, right there in that Tampa audience, was right and wrong.”

“They were wrong for saying CNN sucks,” the former Fox News host said. “CNN, let’s be honest, has an opinion. They don’t suck.”

“Jim Acosta sucks,” Bolling continued. “Period. They should’ve been saying ‘Acosta sucks’, not ‘CNN sucks’. Jim Acosta is using whatever animosity, or whatever fighting he’s got going on with the White House to up his own personal profile, not to get to the information.”
