It's been a good week for former President Donald Trump.
Trump's appearance on CNN's town hall event in New Hampshire went beautifully.
Standing ovation for Donald Trump at the CNN Town Hall

"Former President Donald Trump steamrolled CNN’s Kaitlan Collins during Wednesday’s Townhall event in New Hampshire, dismissing her politically biased and outdated questions, effectively reducing her role as the moderator by speaking directly to the audience about the “gotcha” topics a visibly irritated Collins continually posed throughout the night," reported Breitbart.
Collins attempted to begin the night with contentious topics -- from the 2020 election results to Jan. 6, to accusations in the E. Jean Carroll case.
Trump received a standing ovation at his introduction.
"Collins kicked off the townhall by focusing on the past election and election fraud claims. Trump made it clear, despite Collins’s implications otherwise, that he cherishes the Constitution, emphasizing the importance of living up to it," reported Breitbart.
"I mean, we have elections. We have open borders, look at what’s happening on our southern border," Trump said, pivoting to more pressing subjects.
Collins, at this point in the town hall, continued to press him on the 2020 presidential election.
"They’re being released from prisons. They’re being released from mental institutions, and we have millions of people pouring into our country, and now they’re getting rid of Title 42, which I put on," he said as a visibly irritated Collins tried to remind Trump there would be questions on that topic later.
From there, Trump controlled the night, delivering flawless responses and appearing educated, poised and prepared for the event.
Trump just pulls out receipts to disprove Kaitlin Collins' claims on the CNN town hall... and the crowd cheers!
