"There is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that Trump is the best-case scenario for Hillary Clinton. Thirty-eight percent of the people gave her a favorable rating. Thirty percent of the people say that she's honest and trustworthy," Daniels said as McAvoy.

There was a producer feeding lines to her anchor. Muted moderators. And we think this woman may have been cast to fill the shoes of "stunned sorority girl."

Thanks for keeping it real, Mr. McAvoy.
