CNN aired President Donald Trump’s Orlando re-election kickoff rally on Tuesday night — or at least most of it.

At one point during the commander-in-chief’s remarks, the audience of some 20,000 people — with a huge overflow crowd outside in the parking lots as well — began chanting, “CNN sucks!”

And that’s when that network cut away from the action at the rally.

Trump told the crowd as he referred to his first presidential campaign announcement back in 2015, “This was a defining moment in America history. Ask them right there,” as he pointed to the media in the back — the group of individuals the president calls fake news.

That’s when the crowd started chanting, “CNN sucks!”

CNN anchor John Berman followed the video cut with some very interesting commentary.

“All right. We’ve been watching the president kick off his re-election bid,” Berman said.

“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 added.
