CNN’s Chris Cuomo appeared stunned at Rosie O’Donnell’s bizarre conspiracy theory about the thousands of people who attend rallies for President Donald Trump.
The liberal actress was criticizing Trump on Cuomo’s show when she claimed that his rallies were fake and attendees were paid to show up.
“He’s bad because he doesn’t know how to inspire people,” O’Donnell said to Cuomo, “or evoke that emotion of truth and of knowing.”
“What about his rallies?” he challenged.
“First of all, people are paid, Chris, you know that! People were paid since he went down on the escalator,” she responded. “He pays people to show up at those rallies. That’s a fact!”
“Right, but I don’t know that that’s why he gets tens of thousands at the rallies,” Cuomo responded. “I think he captures a lot of emotion for people.”
