“It was sort of interesting yesterday. Your reporter in South Carolina who was absolutely terrible,” Trump said, referring to CNN’s Randi Kaye, who covered Trump’s speech in Charleston. “I made a speech to the African American Chamber of Commerce in South Carolina. Wonderful people. And the room was full, every seat was full. When I went to the stage, everybody forward. They all rushed to the front of the room. It was a ballroom. They all rushed to the front of the room. And when they did that, you had half of the seats in the back were empty, because everyone was standing in the front.”
Trump went on to ask that his interviewer tell CNN head Jeff Zucker that it was terrible reporting.
Photos suggest that it wasn’t.
It sure is a nice touch when he does an interview and insults someone on that network.
Associated Press photographer Mic Smith captured the crowd during Trump’s speech. You can see Trump on stage, gesturing. And you can see that most of the audience members are still in their seats.
And a vast swath of the room is empty. But his fragile ego just cannot handle that so he pretends what’s visible to everyone didn’t happen.
