Liberal News Writer Calls Trump Rally Attendees Toothless, “Garbage People”

The liberal media aren’t shy about making fun of patriotic Americans who love President Donald Trump. Even Hillary Clinton, the failed candidate, lost tons of support for calling Trump supporters “deplorables,”  — a name that Trump supporters turned into a positive.

After the Trump rally in Tampa, FL, a liberal news writer may have just bit off more than he can chew after he made a nasty comment about pro-Trump folks in the crowd.

Breitbart reports:

Politico reporter Marc Caputo mocked attendees of President Donald Trump’s Tampa rally Tuesday night, referring to them as toothless “garbage people.”

UPDATE: After nearly 11 hours, Caputo posts an apology.

CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta tweeted footage of being jeered by Trump supporters and claimed to be “very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt.” Reacting to Acosta’s remarks, Caputo mocked the appearance of Trump rallygoers. “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth,” he wrote.

When the insult sparked swift backlash, Caputo became defensive and condemned his critics for not being more outraged by the crowd’s treatment of Acosta. “Oh I like a good joke…that was just at the expense of others, which I think isn’t quite so funny. Not your best tweet, Marc,” one Twitter user said. “Oh, no!” Caputo replied. “I made fun of garbage people jeering at another person as they falsely accused him of lying and flipped him off. Someone fetch a fainting couch.”

Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak said Caputo’s attack is a reminder why media favorability among Americans has hit rock bottom. “.@Politico reporter shows why Americans hate the news media,” Pollak tweeted.
