Donald Trump’s vendetta against the media continued on Wednesday as he called out NBC’s Katy Tur in front of a crowd of more than 4,000 people in Miami. This situation comes after the Secret Service began protecting her due to Trump calling her out at a December rally. Trump has not hidden his distaste for the media. He castigates them whenever he can, and that narrative continued in Miami:

“Never before have so many media organizations, old and new, abandoned all pretense of fairness to take sides to try to pick a president. It’s unbelievable. For instance, we’ll have a great story. We’ll give it out to the media [and] they’ll make it look as bad as possible.”

His supporters agreed, and chants of “CNN sucks!” overwhelmed the crowd. But Trump’s complaints didn’t stop there, and he criticized President Obama for not working hard enough and bullied Tur about her reporting. He was not subtle about this and called her out by her first name:

“He ought to be working on jobs, on the border, on building up our military instead of campaigning for crooked Hillary Clinton. It’s what he ought to be doing. They’re not reporting it. Katy, you’re not reporting it, Katy. But there’s something happening, Katy. There’s something happening, Katy.”
