President Trump had a rally in Florida Monday evening, and at one point some in the crowd unleashed chants of “CNN sucks,” among other things directed toward the media:

The comeback from CNN’s chief Resistance correspondent was, “what also sucks? Getting the coronavirus”:

Acosta thought he had a real winner of a comeback in response, and he shared it with Donald Trump Jr., who also agrees that “CNN sucks”:

“The Jerk Store called” now has some company.
There's no outlet thats more thin-skinned than you and your colleagues, Jim. Just as you have a First Amendment right to "report," the crowd has a First Amendment right to say you suck.

Personally I would have gone with "…I should also point out, what also sucks: their faces." – but I give him credit for trying.

Even funnier was Acosta saying the coronavirus “also sucks,” so at least he was in agreement that CNN does indeed suck.
Thereby proving their point. https://t.co/wpYdrzIa4L

As we’ve learned from the mainstream media over the last several months, the virus won’t spread during “acceptable” protests or celebrations.
