What just happened? For the first time in history, Donald Trump held a campaign rally and there were a few empty seats in the arena. It was not the typical standing room-only affair. Some are blaming China (or gleefully giving China credit for it). Democrats are claiming that Trump has lost his momentum and support. So, what’s really going on?
The reason why turnout was far lower than expected was a combination of coronavirus and the threat of violence from the fascist left. That’s all it was, with coronavirus being the bigger factor.
Look at the crowds in the replay videos and you will notice that the median age of attendees is probably a decade (or even two) younger than usual. The higher-risk population stayed home, which was probably wise on their part. The younger crowd still turned out for the rally.
The dumpster fire garbage people known as the mainstream media actually had dueling narratives that they tried to juggle for a few hours after the rally. For weeks, they’ve been telling us that Donald Trump is a serial killer who wants to spread the coronavirus to his followers and then chuckle as they die in pain. Why else would he have a big public rally and not require people to wear masks?
At the same time, they were trying to balance that argument with the lower-than-expected turnout. Which is it, media garbage people? Has Trump lost his support and momentum? Is he doomed? Is this the beginning of the end of his campaign? Are the walls closing in, finally? Pick a narrative.
They’ll probably settle on the second narrative, now that DNC operatives have made up a story about the Trump campaign being “pranked” by the social media platform TikTok. Please don’t fall for this TikTok garbage. It’s just campaign BS made up by people who don’t understand how Trump rallies work.
When you sign up for a “ticket” to a Trump rally, you are only reserving the possibility that you will get in the door. It’s just an RSVP but getting into the arena is still a first-come, first-served sort of deal. All of the lying Democrats on TikTok claiming that they reserved “tickets” and then didn’t go, did not steal any tickets. They just RSVP’d and did not go. No Trump supporter lost a ticket or the ability to get into the arena because of this.
And for all of the Democrats and media morons bragging “We did it!” Do you realize you’re very likely confessing to a crime by saying this? Or are “suppression” and conspiracy to aid and abet in foreign interference in a US election not a crime when you guys do it? (TikTok is owned by China.)
Trump’s momentum is just fine, by the way. More than five million people tuned in to watch the livestream of the rally. We don’t know the exact number, because YouTube and Google do their best to hide the numbers across many platforms, but the number was north of five million, with 2.8 million viewers on Facebook and 1.4 million on YouTube.
If you want to see enthusiasm, check out the most recent Joe Biden rally. It was held in a high school gymnasium. Attendees each got a chair inside of a shame circle that had been chalked on the floor. Every attendee was required to stay in the shame circle to avoid spreading the virus. And the Biden campaign still couldn’t fill the gym, with seating for approximately a hundred people!
My biggest question is: Why does Trump have morons running his campaign?
Why did Brad Parscale actually believe that a million people were going to show up at an arena that draws crowds of around 20,000 for the biggest rock concerts? Democrats were openly bragging online that they were signing up for the rally with no intention of going. I thought Parscale was supposed to be some digital wizard from Silicon Valley? He didn’t think to check on social media to see what was really happening here?
Nope! Parscale kept tweeting as the numbers climbed from half a million, to 600,000, to 800,000, to more than a million RSVPs. Tulsa’s entire population is around 400,000, but whatever. Let’s be blind to the reality on the ground and claim that a million people will be showing up.
Parscale’s naivety allowed the mainstream media to claim an easy victory over the Trump campaign, as far as public perception goes. Expect more of this, as long as Parscale is running the campaign.
