As Steve Roberts noted in his column regarding how the media should cover Donald Trump, the audience cheered and applauded every lie or outrageous statement Trump made at the CNN Town Hall several weeks ago.

Trump attacked his sexual abuse accuser, blamed Nancy Pelosi for the insurrection at the Capitol, proclaimed Jan. 6, 2021 "a beautiful day," said he would seriously consider a pardon for many of the convicted rioters and called the town hall moderator "a nasty person."

All of these statements and others brought laughter, whoops and hollers from those in attendance.

The entire event should be an embarrassment to all Americans. Trump was his usual disgusting self, only to be outdone by his audience.
