As media outlets accused the president of spreading a conspiracy about George Soros paying protesters, one protester admitted on MSNBC that she works for a Soros-funded activist group.
President Donald Trump slammed protesters opposed to Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Friday, accusing the women who confronted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of being paid by billionaire liberal activist George Soros.
The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers

The Daily Beast, Think Progress, and others accused Trump of peddling a conspiracy and expressed disbelief that the anti-Kavanaugh protesters might have been paid by Soros.
