WATCH: CNN Host Loses It after Trump Cheered by Cubans, Prayers in Miami Cafe

'He's trying to turn it into a spectacle and into a campaign ad. That is enough of that. We've seen it already...'

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) CNN host Jake Tapper caused a stir during his recent broadcast by berating the control room to immediately cease airing footage of former President Donald Trump’s visit to a Maimi cafe. Tapper’s outburst came shortly after Trump’s arraignment on 37 charges pertaining to the alleged mishandling of classified documents.

During the visit, Trump was highly celebrated by his supporters, including many Cuban Americans. The celebratory footage clearly irked Tapper, the leftist host, who expressed his frustration by declaring, “I don’t need to see any more of that. He’s trying to turn it into a spectacle and into a campaign ad. That is enough of that. We’ve seen it already.”

Tapper’s apparent agitation prompted criticism from conservatives, who mocked Tapper and CNN for showing contempt for Trump and his supporters. The popular Twitter account, The Columbia Bugle, even mocked Tapper for having a meltdown.

Podcast host Jack Posobiec chimed in, accusing Tapper of “throwing a hissy fit.” Journalist Eddie Scarry suggested that Tapper should have been fired by Chris Licht, the former CNN CEO who tried, but failed, to make CNN a less biased news channel.

Trump’s spontaneous visit to the café highlighted his enduring popularity among the GOP base, especially Cuban Americans who have rallied behind Trump and his conservative policies since his election in 2016.

Inside the restaurant, Trump was greeted by supporters who prayed with him. One woman told Trump, “Jesus loves you.” UFC superstar Jorge Masvidal was also present and enthusiastically cheered the president, even hugging him. Masvidal had previously expressed his support for Trump, calling him the “greatest president in the history of the world” during a viral speech in April at UFC 287 in Miami, Florida.

In downtown Miami, where Trump pleaded not guilty to the criminal charges brought by the Biden administration-led DOJ, several Trump supporters took to the streets. As Trump left the cafe, the crowd outside shouted, “We love you.”

The DOJ, through Special Counsel Jack Smith, made the unprecedented decision to indict a former U.S. president and leading presidential candidate. This move has rallied the Republican base and garnered support from several prominent conservative members of Congress.

Republicans argue that President Joe Biden, embattled Attorney General Merrick Garland and the notoriously anti-Trump FBI conspired to politically target Trump. Some Republicans even claim that Garland’s bitterness stems from Trump thwarting his Obama-era nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2016.

CNN, on the other hand, has sided with the DOJ over this indictment. Their partisan coverage of the indictment comes a month after Trump confronted CNN host Kaitlan Collins during a contentious town hall, which ultimately led to the ousting of CNN CEO, after Trump and his supporters took control of the event,
