    This video was cringey, but illuminating.

    When the guy from CNN calmly and reasonably informs the man with the beard why his beliefs are wrong, "nah" is the response. Facebook posts full of misinformation and conspiracies drove them there - and it looks like a pretty large crowd - and fact checking doesn't work. They'll easily believe an election official posted a video where they're burning votes for Trump, but when it's explained why mail-in ballots went overwhelmingly for Biden suddenly they're skeptical. That one woman seemed reasonably intelligent, had some understanding of social media algorithms, but still failed to grasp how it influenced her.

    Trumpism might be ill but these people are not going anywhere. All we can hope is they're converted to a new "cause" and that cause is not too awful. But they'll need it. They're still ripe for the picking.

    CNN is a propaganda outlet. So its no surprise when no one wants to listen to them.

    CNN certainly has its issues, but they were listening to that man in the video, and what he said was completely reasonable. Trump supporters just have cognitive dissonance. You can't complain about CNN not being legit while believing any piece of shit you find Tik Tok. It makes any criticism you have of CNN ridiculous. It's like claiming Charlie Sheen is nuts and then in same breath making the claim that Charles Manson has it all figured out.

    Dude, there's probably 100's of thousands clips showing Biden/Bush/Clinton/Gore whatever voters being way worst. It's all bullshit that doesn't matter.

    CNN is taking everything Jimmy Kimmel worked for.

    Can't imagine why anyone would view CNN with skepticism.

    we are fortunate that Trumpers are mostly white rural voters. They really don’t have much to complain about other than a former democratic con man lost an election. They’ll go back to living their fairly boring lives in a few weeks.

    Everything he told the Trumptard is the truth... it's funny to watch these fuckwits, including Trump go into deep denial that Biden won.

    I cant understand why Trump supporters cant wrap their minds around the fact that the silent majority hates Trump.

    Why wouldn't it matter that a large portion of the American electorate are a bunch of rubes? I have no doubt there are videos of purple-haired lesbians wearing vagina hats losing their shit, but this type of gullibility is uniquely MAGA. Liberals "reeeeee" because they dislike Donald Trump, Trumpanzees throw a temper tantrum because they saw a fake video on Tik Tok claiming easily disprovable nonsense.

    Here's Fox news cutting away from blatant lies. Good for them and how funny is it how fast everyone is abandoning Trump as soon as he has no more power

    i think the long term argument in on our side, the side of truth but short term it is very difficult to deal with CT factories.

    People who shit talk a video without watching it ARE the problem. That was a very fair, well done segment.

    Based on the level of delusion shown by some here there's definitely some sherdoggers in those crowds.

    It was unedited unfairly to make them look extra stupid!

    The guy dual wielding Trump flags at the stop the steal rally in a state where Biden is ahead nearly 30,000 votes is really smart!
