Remember this, the end of August?
I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October. I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find. As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement. His opponent is a disaster for Texas – weak on Second Amendment, Crime, Borders, Military, and Vets!

The “biggest stadium in Texas we can find.” Well, um, Mr. Trump…anybody else can find a much bigger stadium just a few miles away, and even bigger venues still in other cities.
Trump will be in Houston October 22, in an eenzy weenzy venue, all things considered. Dallas News:
This rally is set for the NRG Arena, which has an 8,000-seat arena — a far more modest venue than the one Trump had promised. Nearby NRG Stadium, by comparison, is home to the NFL Houston Texans and tops out at around 80,000 people.
The Toyota Center, home to the Houston Rockets basketball franchise, seats 18,000.
Kyle Field is the largest stadium in Texas that I could find, and it took me about ten seconds on google. Kyle is the home field for Texas A&M’s football team. It has a seating capacity of 102,995. Then there’s Royal Stadium in Austin, with 100,119 seats, and so forth and so on. Bottom line, you have to go through quite a few yuuuge stadiums before you get down to NRG arena.
But there’s going to be a great show in town, nevertheless. Michael Avenatti vowed to host a Resistance Rally at exactly the same time that Trump takes to the stage Monday. And don’t forget, trucks will be driving about, bearing signs displaying the text of one of Trump’s best known tweets about “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz, “Why would the people of Texas support Ted Cruz when he has accomplished absolutely nothing for them. He is another all talk, no action pol!”
Why would they indeed?
The eyes of Texas are upon you, (Donald) all the live long day, the eyes of Texas are upon you, and you cannot get away……….
