The questions at Monday’s Democrat town hall on CNN were supposed to be from the people in the audience, but one young man’s statement definitely made it look as though at least one of the questions was planted.
Brett Rosengren was visibly nervous and may have forgotten to follow the script properly.
He began his question to Hillary Clinton by calling her secretary Sanders, which drew laughter from the crowd and the candidate.
Then he began his question.
“I can see why they gave you this question,” he began. “I just wanted to know which of our previous presidents has inspired you most and why.”
Her answer was Abraham Lincoln; but many on social media were more interested in the first part of that question.
“I can see why they gave you this question” Was it not the asker’s own question? #DemTownHall

“I can see why they gave you this question?” Is that what he said. What does that mean? Did “they” prepare the questions?

@SalenaZitoTrib Lots of folks I follow noticed that too. Must be nice to have the game rigged in your favor, eh?

@SalenaZitoTrib Such setup. Much corruption. Busted.
