Trump rally crowds behind the so-called President

Is it my imagination, or do they always seat a more "diverse" audience directly behind Trump for the cameras to take in?

4. I remember that I have seen the SAME single black guy

seated more or less directly behind Trump in rallies around the nation last year.

This was noted in the media at least a few times.

Then there was the "Eagles" football rally at the White House... with people who didn't know who the quarterback of the Eagles was.

Do they use "paid actors" at these rally events... I'd say yeah... some, maybe 10% are either paid or volunteers that go from event to event.

6. Noticed that the same group

 

are used as backdrop Audience Members. Understand,the group is kept on retainer and bused or flown to trump events. Four of the Cast are Vegas residents that show up as Extras for Movie shoots in Vegas. The Blond Twins are from Phoenix.

8. there is proof he has done it before after he denied it ...used a background talent" casting agency

ww.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/01/20/trump_paid_actors_to_fill_out_campaign_launch_fec_says.html

The FEC document is, specifically, a record of its decision not to sanction the Trump campaign for conduct related to the apparent transaction. A complaint filed by an activist group that supported Hillary Clinton had alleged that the Trump camp had violated reporting laws related to payments for the actors; the FEC concluded that no significant violation had occurred because the campaign later disclosed a payment to a contractor (Gotham Government Relations) that subcontracted with Extra Mile.

But in the course of explaining why it would not discipline the campaign, the FEC concludes that some announcement attendees were, in fact, paid to be there:

In this matter, the available information indicates that the [Trump campaign] retained Gotham as an event consultant, and Gotham, in turn, subcontracted with Extra Mile to provide extra administrative support at Trump's announcement, including the provision of at least some of the rally crowd.

To be clear, Extra Mile is a "background talent" casting agency.

3. Wish they would zoom out the cameras

so all could see how 'diverse' the crowd really is.

11. That's what I was thinking. Some of them look familiar. Esp the white woman giving the finger, red

blouse.

Or....maybe they are all just "related"

14. Not unique to Trump, Romney pulled the same stunt...

...and likely many more before him.

15. No doubt. The difference is that Trump's message is so obviously white supremacist.

And some of the people just look so damn familiar.
