Fact Check: Trump Protesters Paid and Bused into Austin, Texas?

blatant-lieWe received a fact check request to determine if Trump protesters were paid and bused into Austin, Texas.  The story appears to have originated from the Gateway Pundit, which MBFC News has classified as an extreme right-wing website that promotes conspiracy theories.  We did not have to look far to find that this story has been completely debunked by credible sources.  The claim was originally debunked by Snopes, followed by USA Today and the New York Times.  Please see the links provided for full details. We rate this claim a Blatant Lie.
