JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): When I look at the rally, what do I see? I see these QAnon people, big time there. And these are conspiracy theorists of the right.

GREG GUTFELD: (CO-HOST): You saw one sign.

WILLIAMS: No that's not true, I saw people in shirts, I saw Seth Rich signs, Greg.

JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): What's the conspiracy?

GUTFELD: But that's what you choose to see.

WILLIAMS: Oh, that's what I choose to see? I think if you're watching --

GUTFELD: You can find the fringe, there's more fringe on the left than on the right. I don't like the fringe on either side.

WILLIAMS: Here's the question for you. Why are these people attracted to Trump?

GUTFELD: I think that's actually an interesting question. If there is something extremely popular, it often attracts all sorts of different people. You get mainstream, normal, common sense people, but you get fringe people because that just, you have a wide net.
