Key West, Florida, November 8, 2017—President-elect Donald Trump’s election night party in Florida included a $5,000 massage for a man who had a seizure and was taken to the hospital.
A video from the event shows a man sitting on a couch and sitting up, then shaking his head in disbelief as a man in a white robe appears, grabs the man’s head, and walks away.
He then begins to massage the man with a large white rod, before leaving.
A second video shows the man sitting with his head down, but his hand is on the rod as the man continues to massage him.
Trump supporters were quick to claim the video was doctored, claiming that a medical examiner who reviewed the video had said the man had a stroke and was in pain.
“I have been there,” one man said on the video.
“This is a very good doctor.”
Trump’s transition team denied the claims, saying the video is not authentic and has been widely debunked.
In the days following Trump’s win, a new video emerged that purported to show a man with what appeared to be a seizure during a presidential debate.
It also showed a man dressed in black holding a large plastic rod and saying, “We’re going to put a guy on this thing, and he’s going to choke.”
