Trump Supporter Goes Ballistic On Press: 'You're A Traitor' 'I'm A Patriot'

Just a typical day at a Donald Trump rally.
Trump Supporter Goes Ballistic On Press: 'You're A Traitor' 'I'm A Patriot'

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!
