It’s difficult for liberals and conservatives to understand each other, but adding the delusional dedicated to the mix is a recipe for disaster.
In an eye-opening segment on CNN, Donald Trump supporters falsely claimed that 3 million people voted illegally in the recent presidential election and that President Barack Obama urged non-citizens to cast ballots. One woman said, “Voting is a privilege in this country, and you need to be legal — not like in California, where 3 million illegals voted.”
CNN’s New Day host Alisyn Camerota could barely keep her cool. At one point during the segment, she placed her head in her hand out of sheer disbelief of what she was hearing. As Camerota continued to challenge the guests on their voter fraud claims, the feisty female Trump supporter was adamant about where she got her info, yelling out things like, “Google it. You can find it on Facebook.”
Although the segment only included five Trump supporters, they represent many Americans who believe outlandish rhetoric just as they do. The video also shined a spotlight on the spread of fake news during the election, with bogus pro-Trump stories reportedly widely shared on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. An example of the spreading of erroneous news is when the President-elect claimed on Sunday to his 16 million Twitter followers that “millions” of people voted illegally in the 2016 election.
Check out the tedious clip above. We feel you, Alisyn.
