Conservatives Challenge CNN Reporter Jim Acosta at CPAC in Orlando

Reporter Jim Acosta was confronted on Friday, February 26, by activists at the first day of the annual CPAC Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Attendee Juan Echeverry filmed a group following Acosta at the Hyatt Regency Orlando.

Gun rights activist Kaitlin Bennett can be seen approaching Acosta with a microphone. Acosta waves his hand several times and says, “I wish you all the best.”

Meanwhile, someone can be heard shouting, “What’s your part in dividing this country, Jim? What’s your part in that? What’s your part in all that fake news and your Russian collusion you went on with about three years, Jim? All that evidence you had Jim, where does it show up? What’s your part in what happened January 6th? We all denounced it.”
