NAPLES, FLORIDA — Donald Trump supporters started heckling members of the press after they refused to stand for the pledge of allegiance and national anthem at rally in southwest Florida.

People near the press seating taunted and jeered at members of the media after they noticed some members refusing to stand and honor the anthem and pledge. Many invoked the sacrifice of our military and wondered if the media members were taking the lead of San Francisco 49er backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

One Trump supporter explained to Breitbart News how it all started.

Many of the people Breitbart News spoke with blamed the media for rigging the election against Donald Trump. The most common agency cited for being biased was CNN, called the “communist news network” by one.
