CNN sent reporter Bill Weir to Sturgis, South Dakota, to ask questions of some of the hundreds of thousands of bikers who travel to the remote city each year for the largest biker gathering in the world, the Daily Caller reported.
Weir asked several weathered, pro-Trump bikers if they cared about Russian collusion charges against Trump. CNN was shut down each time.
One biker said the ‘dark cloud’ of Russian collusion was ‘over a lot of politicians,’ and that people are going after Trump because he is ‘on the outside.’
“‘How come the Clintons can do things and no one else can?’ the biker asked.
“Another biker said of Trump meeting Putin, ‘I don’t see any reason to call him out. If they don’t want to be friends it is another story?'”
Weir spoke with the rider named “John” who identified as a postal worker from Kentucky. He first asked John if he thinks Trump is doing a good job.
“He is doing a lot better than what Obama did,” John said. Then Weir asked about Russian collusion charges. John got woke: “They’re saying Hillary colluded with them. They’re saying [Trump] colluded with them. It’s just one blaming the other … I think they need to have some cold hard facts instead of just saying this and that.”
