First, the deranged and debilitated wannabe dictator went on Miami radio yesterday to boast that “40,000” MAGATS would show up to his GOP debate counter-rally to be held at a high school football field near the debate venue.
Then, last night he showed up to the half empty field (stadium would be a gross exaggeration) and subtly recalibrated his fantasy, looking out at a sea of empty bleacher and on-field seating and lying that he was speaking to “tens of thousands.
In reality, maybe 4,000 were in attendance:
“Donald Trump bragged about the size of the crowd at his rally in Hialeah, Florida, despite videos appearing to show empty seats at the venue circulating across social media.
The former president on Wednesday appeared in South Florida for a dueling campaign rally the same night his Republican rivals faced off in the third GOP debate in Miami, a city that has trended toward Republicans in the crucial swing state of Florida in recent years. Trump declined to participate in the debate, as he did the first two, as he continues to hold a substantial polling advantage over the other presidential contenders.
Instead, Trump held a rally in Hialeah, a suburb of Miami with a high Cuban American population, a demographic that has helped Republicans see recent victories in Florida, including Trump’s 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns.
During the rally, he bragged about the size of the crowd that turned out for him, boasting that “tens of thousands” of people attended the rally…
…“I’m standing in front of tens of thousands of people right now and it’s on television. That’s a lot harder to do than a debate,” he said.”
Never Back Down at Twitter provided my top photo and the real skinny, as well as some entertaining commentary:
He's still talking.

I'm glad you guys caught that interview.

Yeah, props on that but if Trump is talking, Trump is lying so know surprise there…
From another video it appears to be more than 1/10, but people were leaving while Trump was still talking. That's an even worse sign than him getting less than 10,000 in perfect weather.

How does he have access to a high school?
— Nanny Gumbo (@TheoriesAreFak3) November 9, 2023
Why would 40,000 people be at a location that holds only 5,200 ? The event had a literal gate that cut off the outside area when the chairs were filled.
That…doesnt make sense.

Could only happen in the fever swamps of the dotard’s brain.

Great shot. Trump is actually speaking, so no one can claim the empty bleacher seats were before the rally.
Still more than a DeSantis rally pic.twitter.com/fxHbf15K7n

Well, at least that is true.
Expect a lot more of this when peeps actually start voting.
The Orangeutan will be claiming crowds of hundreds of thousands in a Staples parking lot next year.
