Politico reporter Marc Caputo mocked attendees of President Donald Trump’s Tampa rally Tuesday night, referring to them as toothless “garbage people.”
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, Breitbart reports.
While it’s usually a good idea to just delete tweets that are wrong, I own this and the criticism (both accurate and misleading) that has followed. I'll do better. Here they are: 3/3 pic.twitter.com/G2rZrHjYWb

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.”
These democratic and heavy left “News” have turned from truth to a war on words and attacks on the American public and our President. It is no wonder people are turning from the news and have no idea where the truth really is when it comes to news around the globe.
Getting the intel and blunt truth is what I am all about and it is hard enough when we fight social media and propaganda sites that block us, we now have “trolls” that are sent to discredit and use whatever tactics they can to shut down the truth. Politico is case-in-point, this is how the see you and me, nothing but useless trash. Their words, not mine, that is the blunt truth.
This scumbag should probably shut his filthy mouth. Just some friendly advice from a “Deplorable” who served our country.
