Life sucked for CNN's Jim Acosta in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday after a crowd of Trump supporters began chanting "CNN sucks" during a live broadcast between him and Wolf Blitzer.

“Wolf, obviously all of those things are false,” he continued. “We’re staying right here, we’re going to do our job and report on this rally to all of our viewers here tonight, Wolf.”
