Trump Supporter Goes Ballistic On Press: 'You're A Traitor' 'I'm A Patriot'
August 12, 2016

We've captured many highly agitated Trump supporters during the campaign, but not one so succinct in his hatred for the media as this fellow.

Donald Trump and his surrogates have a campaign mantra: the media is out to get us. Every time Donald screws up the media is to blame for blowing things he says out of proportion.

I saw this video via CNN's Noah Grey twitter feed and fell off my chair yesterday.

NBC producer Frank Thorpe got his share, too:

"I tried to get the guy's name, and he replied, "PATRIOT, AMERICAN PATRIOT! YOUR NAME IS TRAITOR!!"

And then the Trumpie went on to give CNN's Jeremy Diamond the finger!

Can you help us out?
