SANDRA SMITH (CO-HOST): All right. "I'm afraid the election is going to be rigged." What do you make of [Trump] pushing this narrative? 

DAVID ASMAN (CO-HOST): Well it's already happened, to a certain extent. I mean look what happened in Virginia. Terry McAuliffe, a lifelong Clinton ally, allowed 200,000 ex-cons, felons, to suddenly become voters in the election. I mean 200,000 votes is nothing to sniff about. I mean that -- you can argue that already in open, in daylight, it has been rigged in Hillary's favor by at least the allies of Hillary Clinton around the nation. That's just one example. I would like to hear -- sometimes you put something out there, he doesn't have all the facts to back it up. And then he gets the facts later.
