To borrow a famous quote:
If President Trump is losing, they’re gonna need to build bigger arenas for when he starts winning!
Of course, the point is he’s not losing at all.
He’s WILDLY popular.
New reports out this morning say President Trump’s Dallas KAG Rally quickly hit capacity in the 20,000 arena, where they then closed the doors and everyone else had to remain outside in overflow.
Estimates are that overflow was at least 10,000.
And honestly folks, based on my eyes? It looked like even more than that!
Broke attendance record:
Here are the reports on numbers, from Fox:
President Trump headlined a campaign rally on friendly turf in Dallas on Thursday, just hours after Energy Secretary and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced he would soon step aside amid scrutiny from House Democrats conducting an impeachment inquiry -- and a week after chaos and violence broke out at a Trump rally in Democratic-leaning Minnesota.
A massive crowd of approximately 30,000 gathered outside the American Airlines Center to watch the speech on a large screen, as the president launched into an extended critique of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. He derided former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke as "very dumb" for pushing to confiscate guns and tax religious institutions, and remarked that Joe Biden's family overtly profited from his political career.
"Last week, a very dumb Democrat candidate for president -- that's the end of him in this state -- pledged to revoke the tax-exempt status of many churches and religious charities," Trump said, as boos rocked the arena. "And by the way, that was after, a few weeks ago, he said, 'Excuse me, we're gonna take your guns away.' ... The flailer. You remember he was flailing all over the place?"
It was a marked difference from the bedlam on the streets during Trump's speech last week in Minneapolis, when left-wing activists were recorded attacking Trump supporters on video. A Trump-supporting woman leaving that rally was hit in the face on camera.
A brief security episode as Trump spoke was quickly resolved. Dallas officers assigned to the rally said they were "made aware of an adult male wearing body armor" outside the arena, and that "officers located the individual observing that he was also armed." The man, who was licensed to carry a firearm, was transported to a local hospital for evaluation without incident, investigators said.
Lines are unreal:
I love this:
Heavy points out that Trump drew a capacity crowd of 20,000 plus overflow, while Beto drew a "reported" 5,500 in a competing rally:
President Donald Trump and Beto O’Rourke held competing rallies in Dallas, Texas today about 15 miles apart. Despite what some online reports might say, both rallies had a good turnout, although Trump’s venue was much larger than O’Rourke’s. O’Rourke’s brought in about 5,500 and Trump’s had an overflow crowd for a 20,000-seat venue. Read on to see photos of the rallies and learn more about how many people attended. This story will begin with photos and details from O’Rourke’s event, which was held first, and then the second section will discuss Trump’s rally and the attendance.
Proudly Support Trump!
The exact same hat our President wears!
Only while they last....
