I tweeted a photo of the Trump rally crowd and then things got crazy

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by NH Ethylene (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

The boast from President Trump was bold, brash -- and dubious.

On stage in Harrisburg last Saturday, he told a throng of supporters that the fire marshal had “a lot of people standing outside” and that “we really maxed out. We broke the all-time record for this arena.”

Except staring us in the face, in the upper reaches of the New Holland Large Arena at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex were rows of empty seats.

The biggest, the greatest, the most ... except, not quite.

Seriously demented.

5. Aside from Trump's lies, this story points out the ridiculousness of Twitter.

 

An artificially limited message form. Crap in small pieces is still crap.

7. I usually try to catch parts of the Farm Show every year

(they usually run it on the PA state channel on cable)

and that is where they do the horse sled pulls.

18. Nah..

He's the guy you can't see "leading from behind" the sled - pushing it and everything else in front of himself.

8. I look at it this way: Still way too many people showed up to make me comfortable.

 

So these ppl do not get it. He's a fraud, a phony. Are they that stupid? I guess so.

12. Comments tweeted at the reporter show perfect example of the Backfire Effect


My favorite reaction was from someone who wrote that the photo “is one of the reasons why I voted for and will always stand by TRUMP. Cause of idiots like john "boy" tamari.” (Translation: Visual evidence questioning a politician’s claims make me trust that politician more.)

14. Well, people who attended the rally, you figure, must realize Drump was lying when he made

those statements. They must have seen with their own eyes the empty seats. Hopefully the word will get out and future events will have fewer and fewer attendees. Drump may even give up his grand idea of doing the rally thing as a continual thing as he'd planned. We can only hope.

17. It's the fact that they have been proven wrong and are trying to save face. They just cannot deal

with being so wrong in their core belief. He promised so much and they believed him so much.

16. I'm still trying to find one person of color...

in that crowd. What diversity! He really represents a cross-section of America! NOT

He is a fake and a con and it's all been said before. He will continue to boast about everything he does as the best until such time as he's taken down by his lies and misdeeds. Until more people call for his removal, he'll just keep on. He is a classic case of arrested development and that means it's arrested forever. He's never going to be a sane adult, so don't expect it.
