The teenagers were not responsible for the low turnout

They were responsible for the large number of free tickets claimed.

1. There were unlimited free tickets.
2. In the heart of Trump country only 6,200 people showed up.

This tells us that while Trump supporters on Facebook claim not to care about COVID, in reality they recognize the stupidity of a rally in the middle of a pandemic.

3. True, but they did help to make the Trump campaign look incompetent....

The Trump campaign crowed for days that they had over 1 million people that wanted to come, and then few came. And maybe when people heard there were going to be that many people there they decided not to come. I think the teenagers did have a positive effect on the rally being less than the great success he was looking for.

4. I agree with everything you wrote except the

last line. I donít think it was about covid at all. I think itís about Twitler failing to deliver. There is no better health care plan, ACA is still in place, DACA is still in place, there is no wall, the economy SUCKS, farmers are loosing their asses and their farms, crops were getting plowed under and/or left to rot in the fields because there was no one to pick them.

15. And millions saw an empty stadium

and a tired, washed up, deranged old man.

There was no win for Trump here. This was Trumps Geraldo Rivera moment, when he discovered that Jimmy Hoffa was not in the tomb. Trump lost the election last night.

Trump has kept the GOP in line because of his base. No Republican politician wanted to cross him because Trump could rile up the base against him. Last night, though, showed Trump couldn't in fact summon that base when he most needed to, in one of the reddest states of the Union. This has to have a lot of politicians wondering if supporting him is such a good idea after all.

16. Its way, way, way too early to say he 'lost the election last night'

He couldn't draw a crowd because we're in the middle of a pandemic and his stupid supporters are still smart enough to realize it is a bad idea to go shoulder to shoulder in a crowd of thousands of screaming morons.

5. I think you are right about the COVID part

I also think it shows that enthusiasm for the orange asshat is waning even among his cultists.

6. They were responsible for the hyped expectations, and that's more important.

If the Trump campaign had known the actual number of people who really wanted to attend, and saw that it was only around 6,200, then they'd have made social distancing an excuse and have required it so they could say the stadium was as full as it could be, or they'd just have cancelled the whole event, maybe claimed there was an "Antifa" bomb threat, etc... anything, ANYTHING to avoid last night's embarrassment.

Those teenagers and K-pop fans DID punk Trump's fat ass, no doubt about it!

14. Mary Jo Laupp deserves credit for her organizing the passing of the generational Torch.

She probably learned from the political unrest as she came of age in the 80's.

Tianenman Square as well as the continued protest against the unresolved aparthied of S.Africa.

The global protesting against brutal dictatorships, on behalf of free societies plays out in each generation.

Credit the political generations who came before in guiding the next in righteous purpose .
It is a duty to the societies that will follow.

Thank you. Mary Jo Laupp for passing the political torch to the next generation & directing them howw to succeed in their efforts.

https://globalnewscap.com/iowa-grandma-promotes-trick-to-get-trump-to-speak-to-empty-room/


A 51-year-old Iowa woman has led an effort get President Donald Trump to address an empty auditorium when he speaks at a campaign rally next week.

Mary Jo Laupp posted a video on video sharing platform TikTok last week encouraging her followers to register for Trumpís campaign rally in Oklahoma and then not attend. The plan is designed to purchase as many tickets as possible, forcing the president to address a largely empty auditorium on June 20.

ďAll of those of us that want to see this 19,000 seat auditorium barely filled or completely empty go reserve tickets now and leave him standing alone there on the stage,Ē Laupp told her TikTok followers.

12. Disagree. Think they had a lot to do with low turnout.

If I was interested in going to an event, and said event had issued 1 million tickets for a venue holding just over 19,000, I'd stay home too.

Even if I paid for tickets.

13. trump might also have scared a lot of his own supporters with talk of dangerous antifa

murderous violence.

He was really hoping to use the National Guard to bash some black skulls and shoot some imaginary antifa terrorists to rouse his base for the cameras. It would have been good for about a week of TV prime time to him.

19. Exactly this! This number was the number of people who thought it was worth their time

and trouble to come. And it is an extremely low number.

Trump's campaign is in huge trouble, and this pleases me.
