CNN Busts Donald Trump For Saying There's No Violence At His Rallies

CNN flashed a graphic up alongside Donald Trump's rally that showed some of the acts of violence that have occurred there.

As Chris Christie was sitting next to Donald Trump in a faux interview setting, a few people held up signs against Trump. His supporters then began to chant USA, USA, which was followed by chants of "Trump." When the crowd died down, Donald began telling his followers how wonderful they all are and how the media was making the violence angle out of nothing. He even went as far as characterizing his rallies as hippie "lovefests."

Trump said, "Alabama, 35,000 people, no disruption, no nothing, but the press is now calling this saying, "oh, but there's such violence," no violence. You know how many people have been hurt at our rallies? I think like basically none - other than I guess, maybe someone got hit once or something, but there's no violence."

As he was patting himself on the back for cancelling his rally in Chicago, CNN flashed this image up next to him, outlining some of the violence that's taken place at his rallies.

There's no violence, there's lovefests. These are lovefests.
