CNN reporter Jim Acosta spoke with HLN’s S.E. Cupp just one day after being shouted down by Trump supporters at a rally in Tampa, Florida.
Cupp started off the segment on her Wednesday show by introducing Acosta as “one of the president’s favorite human punching bags” before asking him about his rally experience.
Acosta replied by saying this type of hostility has been building since the campaign.
“Honestly, it felt like we weren’t in America anymore,” Acosta said. “I don’t know how to put it any more plainly than that. Americans should not be treating their fellow Americans in this way.”
