Courtesy of Mediaite:Wow, @CNN got caught fixing their "focus group" in order to make Crooked Hillary look better. Really pathetic and totally dishonest!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 10, 2016
There’s a new conspiracy going around that a brief bit of unintentionally picked-up audio shows a CNN conspiracy to coach its own focus group, and it didn’t take long for Donald Trump to embrace the conspiracy.
A bunch of conservative websites picked up the snippet, which shows the clip of Hillary Clinton saying “America’s great ’cause we’re good” followed by a CNN reporter repeating the line to the focus group.
Right after that she asks the focus group what about her argument resonated and one woman mentioned that line.
This is the supposed "coaching" that Donald Trump and the wingnuts are saying was caught on tape.
Mediaite goes on to say that it is not at all certain that the audience heard the remarks from Clinton and so the reporter might well have been reiterating what was said, or simply revisiting something the audience member had said while the cameras were off and asking that person to repeat her previous statement.
Of course in Trump world all conspiracy theories are believable, and since the Donald cannot bring himself to accept the possibility that this group decided that he lost this debate based on his performance, he simply must accept this one as well.
