'CNN should be ashamed of themselves': AOC livid over Trump town hall

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blasted CNN on Wednesday night following a town hall event it broadcasted featuring former President Donald Trump.

“CNN should be ashamed of themselves,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “They have lost total control of this ‘town hall’ to again be manipulated into platforming election disinformation, defenses of Jan 6th, and a public attack on a sexual abuse victim. The audience is cheering him on and laughing at the host.”

Trump repeatedly talked over host Kaitlan Collins, turned her questions around on her, and pretty much steamrolled over her to get his points across.

He said it was easy to see that the 2020 election was rigged "unless you're a stupid person" and swore on his children that he didn't even know E. Jean Carroll, much less assault her in a dressing room in the mid-1990s.

It was classic Trump, and the audience of Republicans and independents ate it up.

“I like you guys,” Trump told the crowd at the end of the night.
