Anderson Cooper Mocks Trump’s Latest Voter Fraud Claim With Clip of Circus Clowns

CNN’s Anderson Cooper mocked President Donald Trump‘s outrageous voter fraud claims by showing footage of Ringling Bros. clowns Wednesday night.

During an interview with the Daily Caller, Trump claimed wannabe voter fraudsters went into their cars to don a disguise and then vote again.

“Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again,” Trump opined,  without proof. “It’s really a disgrace what’s going on.”

He also falsely claimed you needed an ID to buy cereal in America.

Cooper — a self-described mass consumer of cereal — first started out by saying, “I basically live on cereal. That’s why I look so healthy. I can assure you except for Frosted Lucky Charms which as you all know are magically delicious, no I.D., is necessary to purchase any cereal, thank goodness, or any other breakfast food.”

He then addressed the voter fraud claims before airing a clip of video of such alleged car-changery.

“All right,” Cooper said as the clip ended. “Obviously, that is from the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.”

He then suggested this: “Maybe that is where Mr. Trump got the idea of people going into their cars and changing disguises because the president offered actually no evidence to back up his claim.”

Cooper then added that is because there is no known evidence to back up Trump’s remarks.
