Trump’s Tulsa Rally Was A Flop, And They Know It.

Apparently the bloom is officially off of the rose. Trump’s much vaunted campaign launch rally is over, and to say that it was underwhelming would be kind. And the results of this rally are going to dog the Trump campaign for days, if not weeks.

It was supposed to be the Cecil B DeMille spectacular to end all spectaculars. The Trump campaign bragged that they were more than oversold out for the 19,000 seat arena that they booked.  They were going to use the convention center next door for overflow seating, with big screen TV’s  and piped in audio from the blessed event.

And in the end, it all came a cropper. I just saw footage on MSNBC, and there were two Trump acolytes sitting in what appeared to be the second balcony, their arms spread out over chair backs, with nothing but a sea of empty seats all around them. I just heard an estimate that the arena was at least 1/4 full.

But that doesn’t mean that nobody cares. There was a Black Lives Matter rally outside of the venue that by appearances may have been just about as large, if not marginally larger than the crowd inside of the arena. And they weren’t going anywhere.

This was a total debacle, and the Trump campaign and the White House knows it. Before the rally was even over, the campaign put out a bad tempered press release, blaming protesters and the media for the less than sterling crowd size. This had to come as somewhat of a surprise to the media, who had been covering the growing number of bucket heads that had lined up for seats since Tuesday.

Trump was Trump. Nothing more, and nothing less. He peddled hatred, racism, and threw out as much red meat as he could chuck while he was busy blowing a dog whistle with his mouth. He railed against the radical left, and he ranted about AOC and Ilhan Omar, and the rest of the squad, and he repeated ad nauseum his endless litany of victimization. But reporters in the arena said that actually, Trump looked listless and unenthusiastic. Personally, I think that Trump was stunned by the vast number of empty seats, which the campaign had no chance to cover up with ceiling to floor drapes.

This is freakin’ Oklahoma that we’re talking about there! Blood red Trump country. There is no way that Trump will lose Oklahoma in the general election, He specifically chose this venue because he could count on rabid support to come out and worship at the Trump alter. Trump has been frustrated and furious for months now that he couldn’t salve his savaged feelings with a good, old fashioned rally before the faithful, and instead he’s greeted with a 3/4 empty auditorium.

Take my word for it, there is going to be blood in the gutters, and not just some lower echelon drones. This was to be Trump’s triumphant emergence from hibernation, and somebody is going to have to pay. At this point there is nobody in the campaign that will be safe from Trump’s wrath.

There is no way to know what effect, if any, that the coronavirus had on his crowd size, My personal feeling is not much. The people that CNN and MSNBC were interviewing all week were faithful acolytes, they brushed off any questions about fearing infection. The simple fact of the matter is that Trump set up a rally, with a ton of lead time, and pimped the shit out of it online and in the media. But when the time came, the campaign, and Trump’s pwn supporters failed to deliver. There’s an old saying on Broadway, If Opening Night is a flop, then the show is not long for this world. And it’s hard to see this debacle as anything other than a flop.

To know the future, look to the past.before the insanity of the 2020 election, relive the insanity of the 2016 GOP primary campaign, and the general election, to see how we got to where we are.

I hope the republicans start running for the hills. This was a HUGE let down. I he a feeling it would be. Very happy I was right. The vulnerable repubs have to be so worried right now. It’s great.

If you’re happy and you know it, cast your vote! And if Republicans weren’t skeedadling for those hills BEFORE this, it’s probably already too late for the stragglers.

Trump-O’s Campaign Kick-Off happened on the same night that his Farewell Tour began.

Or to use a phrase that lambasted Tony Bennett for his role in The Oscar, “Giving the debut performance that would end his film career…”

If there’s a campaign shakeup, there’s going to be chaos and meltdown even worse. Campaign shakeups are almost always signs that things are disintegrating but many candidates can pivot and rebuild stronger. Trump can’t. He can’t assess real-world skills people bring to the table and will run for whoever blows the most smoke up his ass.

Per Hoarse Whisperer on Twitter (who suffered through the rally with the inadequate fortification of three beers), the final estimate on the crowd was a little under 6,300. That would have filled up my high school gymnasium but not THAT place.

The Tulsa police counted 6200. A little under 1/3 full.
(My high school gym – the boys’ gym, which was the larger of the two) was crowded with 2000 people. My class was maybe 400.)

Yeah, I got the number wrong by 100. Pathetic either way, right?

Oh, I’m sure Team Trump will come to some rationale–maybe, “If we’d just held the rally when His Lordship originally said, there wouldn’t have been room for any protestors within 50 miles of the auditorium; it’s too bad His Lordship was persuaded by evil people to change the date over something as stupid as a fake holiday.” (Granted, the second half probably won’t be worded anything like that but Trump’s base will get the appropriate dog whistle and it’ll certainly keep Trump from looking “weak” to the base since changing the date wasn’t himself’s idea. Not to mention, his base… Read more »

All that noise will be strictly to keep Trump docile. Rick Wilson and others have wisely noted a base alone, especially this small, isn’t enough to win.

They’re talking about how protesters were blocking the gates, and they had 300K verified-GOP ticket holders. Which still isn’t flying: there weren’t a lot of protesters, and most of those 300K must live elsewhere.

Indeed, P J. The outside parking lot of my local Walmart at 3AM couldn’t have looked more deserted than the space around the demolished overflow stage.

The Trump campaign was ‘pwned’ by a a very large number of teenagers on TikTok, for a real laugh read the first comment in this RawStory item.https://www.rawstory.com/2020/06/steve-schmidt-reveals-how-teenagers-dealt-a-savage-blow-to-donald-trumps-reelection-at-tulsa-rally/
It really shows how inept his campaign team ‘masterminds’ are.

Trump’s LIFE is a flop and most reasoned people with half a brain know this. DJT is a failure at so many levels it is all but impossible to keep count. But, one thing Trump has succeeded at? LYING! What is the latest count? 10,000? 15,000? 20,000? If he could fill those seats with all his lies, he would have had a full house. 🤣🤣🤣👿

If I could be happier over this flop, I’d be positively giddy. Hoped last night when I went to bed this would be the outcome, but with this nutjob in the WH one never knows. Agree with you Murf–there will be blood on the White House lawn. Whose heads roll is one of the questions of the day–Parscale? Or the entire campaign team? And certainly it was the fault of the BLM protesters–because they were peaceful and polite, ergo they wouldn’t entertain the possibility of a race riot; which was ridiculous, never mind totally racist as well. The beginning of… Read more »

If he dumps his campaign team now, including Parscale who engineered his electoral college victories, he’s crisper toast than ever.

Sooooo, the “Million MAGAt March” was a trifle short of a million! How ‘bout that? Even the TRumpsters can’t lie 6,200 into a million MAGAts.
