A Republican voter in Florida told MSNBC on Wednesday that she had cast her ballot early to protect her vote from liberal billionaire George Soros, who she suggested controls “all” of the state’s voting machines.
The woman, who was identified only as Catherine, made the remarks while speaking to MSNBC’s Ali Vitali at a Trump campaign event in Estero, Florida.
“First of all, I’m a Republican and I follow Donald Trump,” Catherine explained. “And I believe in all of his values. And I believe in his foresight for the United States of America. And I’m hoping to keep the Republican Party strong so that we can continue on to 2020.”
“And also I want to say, I did paper voting because I don’t trust George Soros,” the woman added, “who has funded all of these voting machines. I believe them to be corrupt. And so I feel more confident with the paper vote, which was already done.”
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell followed up by correcting the Republican voter.
“Of course, that women is misinformed because the fact is that the state machines are all run by Rick Scott, the governor, and some state officials,” Mitchell informed her audience. “And George Soros has absolutely nothing to do with it.”

Don Lemon lists ‘manipulative garbage’ Trump uses to exploit his supporters’ ignorance
CNN host Don Lemon thinks that President Donald Trump is using issues like race to manipulate his voters into voting against their own interest.
In his opening commentary, Lemon showed the clip of Trump's supporters chanting "send her back" at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a Somali immigrant who came to the U.S. when she was just 12 years old.
He then cited a tweet that Trump sent out earlier Wednesday.
"New Poll: The Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in predicting the 2016 Election, has just announced that "Trump" numbers have recently gone up by four points, to 50 percent. Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen. America will never buy your act! #MAGA2020," Trump tweeted.
Seth Meyers hilariously jabs ‘most oily’ Trump child Don Jr.
Late-night host Seth Meyers took an epic jab at Donald Trump Jr. during his Wednesday night show.
Meyers showed the clip of Trump appointee Ken Cuccinelli going down in flames in a CNN interview where he tried to pretend he hadn't heard the president's racist tweets. The host not only read the tweets for Cuccinelli, but she also caught him being asked about the tweets the day before on another show.
Trump and the GOP stand for ‘blaming others if you’re not happy where you are’: Democratic congressman
Unapologetic about his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color, President Donald Trump stood smugly by at his Wednesday rally in Greenville, South Carolina as his supporters attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) with chants of "Send her back! Send her back!"
In conversation with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) denounced it as just standard operating procedure for this president and the party that elected him.
"I want to talk health care, but ... [Trump] ain't going to campaign on health care," said Cuomo. "He's going to campaign that there's something wrong with the way you look and people like you are a little bit of a danger. And we're a little bit better off when you guys stay where you were before you were here. That's his campaign. He is confident. How do you counter?"
