Donald Trump wrongly stated that the 100,000 people who went to his rally in New Jersey couldn't protest his trial because of heavy security outside the courthouse

Trump lamented that the 100,000 rally goers who attended his weekend event in Wildwood, New Jersey aren’t protesting his hush money trial in Lower Manhattan.

As Trump finished speaking, a reporter could be heard yelling, “Why Hannibal Lecter?” whom Trump jokingly labeled a “great man” during his weekend rally.
