8. What's your point, that this story is invalid? Why jump into this thread just to shit on it?

Seems to me the story still applies, and it's not posted in LBN.

12. Responding to "I want MSM to cover this story"

 

This is from a year and a half ago. Is there something more recent?

14. The MSM didn't really cover this story then, nor is it covering it now.

Trump lies so much, the MSM seems to have given up addressing his crowd size lies.


So how does what you said "respond" to the poster saying he wants this addressed by the MSM? What exactly was the point you were trying to make? You know how to Google. If there is something more recent, find it and post it. Why shit on this thread?

20. I have heard the MSM speak of the small crowd sized on numerous occasions

"News" implies something that is current.

26. I definitely can remember Rachel talking about the inauguration crowd.

That was everywhere.

But the size of the rally crowd versus the perception isn't something that I have really seen covered outside of youtube.

I got most of my news this past year from MSNBC, The Atlantic, The Guardian and BBC World News. Mostly MSNBC all through the evening but that has changed in 2018.

10. And

I still want it covered by MSM.

How big are those crowds? Who is getting paid? Rather than just quick edit "Trump Followers are Dopes" youtube videos.

13. Oh, I misunderstood

 

I thought you were saying you wanted the MSM to cover this story from a year and a half ago.

I agree that it would be interesting to cover the current crowd sizes.

I have to think the evil events of the last few days will peel off more Trumpsters than it will attract, that more than a few will see the light.

He lies. It's what he does.

It's disturbingly beautiful. It's like a Calvin Klein Obsession ad.

30. Congratulations on your Emmy!

I am very grateful that Trump has not found his Reifenstahl. Nor probably even sees the use of one.

Imagine how much worse off we would be.. even than we are now.

17. Don't forget the Craigslist ads

for paid "supporters" -- just before his rally check the local Craigslist postings offering cash to be a stand-in at an "event"

He really is a fake president.

21. yeah, but bush did this, too

remember the photos of people they would track from rally to rally? Same people.

I think we can safely say that recent republican presidents are smoke and mirrors.

I appreciate this guy's analysis. It's fact-based, and very reasonable. So really, Trump has less than a third of the supporters that he purports to have.

It's utterly amazing to me that these republicans can take over the country and rule with so little support using such tactics as voter suppression and gerrymandering. When history writes the story of this era.....

18. This is telling the real story - Well done!

Several (maybe even most) times Trump's rallies have had such low attendance that they were moved to a smaller area, just like this guy explained. They used camera angles to make it look jam-packed but it's really half-empty.

Note that the signs are all printed by a commercial printer, not hand-drawn by the attendees. The printed signs are given out to the paid attendees as they walk in the door. If people had made their own signs at home it would be a clue to how engaged they are. (These people aren't.)

Never believe the numbers Cheeto uses for his rally attendance. His numbers will never be correct. It's probably one-half to one-third of what he says.

19. I think this post has more recs than that rally has people

And it could be that some of the supporters in the background are actually cardboard cutouts borrowed from a local theatre promo, might not even be close

He's the first fake president* in American history

24. I thought you might be referring to someone's report from the Houston shitshow. Frightening!

See:

From a woman who attended the trump-cruz rally

My takeaway from the report is that they are out for blood. Republicans are going all out in their efforts to violently overthrow what remains of the Left in this country. Their sense of entitlement to power has never been more clear. There is no reasoning with people whipped up into a frenzy like this. And these are our neighbors, our fellow Americans, ready to take up arms against their perceived threats that have no basis in reality, only a distortion of it. I honestly don't know what to think, I don't want to believe what I see and hear with my own senses. But they are fools being led by more clever fools willing to incite a civil war. This election may very well be our last chance at a peaceful return to normalcy but, even if we win by a landslide, expect there to be millions of useful idiots freaking out that the sky is falling.

I don't get how so many republicans are willing to be played as pawns. But they're swallowing it hook, line and sinker. Fools indeed. Say the word "socialism" in front of them and you may as well be a magician who spoke some magic word to kick off their programming to attack.

This woman was very brave indeed to go there as a witness and I am grateful for her willingness to share her very insightful observations.

We really need to have and distribute more vivid accounts like this, including all those leaving.
