AOC Claims Trump Tulsa Rally Sabotaged By Teens on TikTok


Ah the infamous Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. 

Haven’t heard much from her recently, but unfortunately she’s back in the news.

She was on Twitter today giddy and gloating that some group called K-Pop from Asia on social media platform TikTok sabotaged Trump’s Tulsa Rally by making thousands of requests for tickets they never intended to use.

Got all that?

Wow.  

Here were her gleeful Tweets:

The Hill helps explain what's going on:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) credited “teens on TikTok” for the lower than expected turnout at President Trump’s rally on Saturday night in Tulsa, Okla., his first since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

Responding to a tweet by Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale blaming “radical protestors” for intimidating people at the event, the progressive first-term lawmaker wrote, “Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID.”

“Shout out to Zoomers. Y’all make me so proud,” Ocasio-Cortez added.

She also thanked “KPop allies” for their “contributions in the fight for justice” in a follow-up tweet.

Fans of the Korean pop music genre reportedly submitted thousands of fake registrations for the rally and have claimed credit for the turnout.

“It spread mostly through Alt TikTok — we kept it on the quiet side where people do pranks and a lot of activism,” Elijah Daniel, a YouTube personality who helped organize the campaign, told The New York Times. “K-pop Twitter and Alt TikTok have a good alliance where they spread information amongst each other very quickly. They all know the algorithms and how they can boost videos to get where they want.”

In a statement, the Trump campaign denied the efforts had any effect on rally attendance.

Tulsa Fire Department says Trump rally attendance was about 6,200
"Reporters who wrote gleefully about TikTok and K-Pop fans - without contacting the campaign for comment - behaved unprofessionally and were willing dupes to the charade," it said. "Registering for a rally means you’ve RSVPed with a cell phone number and we constantly weed out bogus numbers, as we did with tens of thousands at the Tulsa rally, in calculating our possible attendee pool. These phony ticket requests never factor into our thinking."

And from the Hollywood Reporter:

All the empty sets in the upper level, the cancellation of president and vice president's outdoor speeches to "overflow" attendees, and general low turnout may be in part thanks to fans of K-pop and TikTok users, according to multiple reports.

What was touted as a massive campaign rally for Donald Trump with a million ticket requests for the event turned out to be a bit of a bust. Instead, the president's gathering at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla., on Saturday (June 20) was attended by a little more than 6,200 people in a 19,200-seat stadium, according to Forbes.

All the empty sets in the upper level, the cancellation of president and vice president's outdoor speeches to "overflow" attendees, and general low turnout may be in part thanks to fans of K-pop and TikTok users, according to multiple reports.

Per The New York Times, after the Trump campaign announced on TikTok that supporters can get free tickets to the rally by registering via their phones, K-pop fans shared the information and urged others to sign up and be no-shows.

In a TikTok video that has since been liked more than 707,000 times, user Mary Jo Laupp encouraged her followers to do just that. "All of those of us that want to see this 19,000 seat auditorium barely filled or completely empty go reserve tickets now and leave him standing alone there on the stage," she said in the video.

Elijah Daniel, another protest participant, told the paper, "K-pop Twitter and Alt TikTok have a good alliance where they spread information amongst each other very quickly. They all know the algorithms and how they can boost videos to get where they want."

Boasted a K-pop fan on Twitter after the low turnout, "we did it ya'll."

One parent on Twitter also shared that her son is friends with some of the Korean pop music fans who participated:

Laupp, 51, told NYT, "There are teenagers in this country who participated in this little no-show protest, who believe that they can have an impact in their country in the political system even though they’re not old enough to vote right now."

Later on Saturday, Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted that "radical protesters" and "apoplectic media coverage" were to blame for the lower than expected number of attendees at the rally. (Live footage from the event that aired on CNN showed few protesters around the stadium, and those who were there were peaceful. And ahead of the event, medical experts repeatedly warned that having a major indoor event in the midst of a pandemic could cause COVID-19 cases to spike.)

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York responded to Parscale, tweeting, "Actually, you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID."

Wait a minute, what is that hashtag?

I read that too fast I thought they call themselves the #PoopStains.

Might want to change that moniker, but what do I know?

But let's make something very clear.

AOC and all the Fake News want to say Trump's Tulsa Rally was somehow a failure.

Are you kidding me?
