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.
Trump rally Truther Rosie
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."
"But he doesn't get tens of thousands," O'Donnell replied, "when did he get tens of thousands at these rallies, tell me when."
'Rosie, I’ve seen them!'
Cuomo agreed that Trump didn't have tens of thousands at his latest rally in Tampa, Florida, but said, "Rosie, I've seen them!"
"He gets big groups of people who come out," he explained. "He gives themes that resonate, whether they're positive or not that's up to other people to decide."
"I don't have the facts that his crowds have been bought off. I don't know that!" Cuomo said.
O'Donnell asked Cuomo to go find "requests for extras to come and cheer" at Trump rallies.
"Those are not real rallies!" she concluded.

O'Donnell added that unless Trump gets the Russians to help him fix the next election, that she was confident the American people would vote him out of office.
