A mainstream media correspondent was shouted down by an enthusiastic Trump supporter Tuesday as she attempted to report on former President Donald Trump’s announcement speech.
National Sinclair correspondent Ahtra Elnashar explained she was unable to film a package intro for her report due to a Trump supporter holding a “Fake News is CNN” sign continuously shouting, “Fake News!” during taping.
“I’m outside Mar-a-Lago covering Trump’s announcement. My photographer and I have been trying for 30 min to shoot a simple package intro. We’re being followed, harassed, yelled at by Trump supporters like this guy. I shot this while trying to do my job,” Elnashar tweeted.
The reporter eventually was able to make her way inside Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
In a closing Tweet, Elnashar commented she was not deterred by interruptions from “hecklers or people looking to otherwise disrupt reporters at work.”
With the MSM already having a rough go of it day one of the Trump 2024 candidacy, they will no doubt have their work cut out for them over the next 720 days.
