Actress and comedian Rosie O’Donnell took to CNN Monday night to claim that President Trump pays people to attend his rallies.

O’Donnell told CNN's Chris Cuomo about her anti-Trump rally earlier that Monday, where people had gathered for a cringe-worthy “woke” sing along to protest the “Lyin’ King" -- but still couldn’t seem to get it through her head that millions of Americans actually like President Trump.

“People are paid, Chris,” she claimed. “We know that. People were paid since he went down on the escalator. He pays people to show up at those rallies.”

“But I don’t know that that’s why he gets tens of thousands at the rallies,” Cuomo surprisingly pushed back. “I think he captures a lot of emotion for people.”

“But he doesn’t get tens of thousands,” O’Donnell asserted.

“Rosie, I’ve seen them. He gets big groups of people who come out. He gives themes that resonate,” Cuomo said.

“But Chris, are people paid?” O’Donnell asked.

“I don’t know, I don’t have the facts that his crowds are bought off. I don’t have that,” Cuomo said. “I’m not going to say, ‘they’re all bought off, they’re all fake,’ because I think that’s b.s., I don’t think it’s true. I’m not going to play to it just because it’s satisfying,” he later continued.

You know O’Donnell is crazy when she gets Cuomo of all people to push back against her anti-Trump nonsense.
