CNN's Jim Sciutto on Tuesday busted Trump 2020 director of strategic communications Marc Lotter for blatantly lying about President Donald Trump's response to a supporter who talked about shooting immigrants.
Sciutto started out by playing a clip of Trump at a Florida campaign rally earlier this year in which he rhetorically asked his audience, "How do you stop these people," referring to undocumented immigrants.
A man in the crowd yells, "Shoot them!" and the president laughs and then says you can only get away with shooting immigrants "in the [Florida] panhandle."
"Is that an appropriate response from a sitting president?" Sciutto asked Lotter.
"I think when you show the entire context, which you just mentioned, Jim, the president said that we're not a country that uses weapons against people who are coming across our border illegally," he replied.
"He laughed, Marc!" Sciutto replied. "The president laughed!"
"He was dismissive of [the suggestion to shoot immigrants]," Lotter insisted.
"He was laughing," Sciutto replied.
