The Democrats have been cheering on rioters for the last month, and up until Saturday, were crying that President Donald Trump’s rally shouldn’t be held at all due to public health.
They’ve taken every opportunity to criticize and mock anything President Trump does, including taking shots at the size of the crowd during Trump’s rally Saturday night in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
As usual, they spin the narrative in whatever way suits them.
The ratings on Saturday night say otherwise though.
Our friends at Fox News had this to say...
President Trump’s rally on Saturday attracted a record-setting audience on TV despite the smaller-than-expected crowd in attendance at the Tulsa, Okla., event.
A whopping 7.7 million total viewers tuned into Fox News from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. EDT during Trump’s remarks, making it the most watched Saturday in the network’s history during that time period, according to early Nielsen data.
Trump’s rally also gave Fox News its largest Saturday night primetime audience ever from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Trump’s State of the Union address is the only telecast on Fox News in 2020 to outdraw the 9 p.m. hour of Trump’s speech on Saturday, which averaged 8.2 million total viewers.
By comparison, ESPN’s coverage of the NFL Draft’s opening night averaged 8 million, MSNBC’s most-watched Democratic primary debate averaged 7.7 million and CNN’s most-watched weekday Democratic primary debate averaged 7.4 million.
The Trump campaign has stated that even more viewers tuned in when including the significant audience that watched via streaming platforms.
That's a far cry from what Democrats would have you believe.
The Hill had this to say:
“President Trump’s rally in Tulsa attracted over 4 million unique viewers across all of the campaign’s digital media channels. The live-streamed pre-rally shows drew an audience of more than 2.5 million unique viewers by themselves,” said Tim Murtaugh, communications director for Trump 2020.
CNN and MSNBC did not carry the rally live.
The big story of the rally was attendance, as Trump failed to pack the 19,000-seat BOK Center in Tulsa. The Trump campaign canceled planned outdoor remarks by Trump and Vice President Pence and disassembled an outdoor stage minutes before Trump began his remarks inside the center.
Murtaugh blamed protesters over the lack of attendance while critics of Trump pointed to teenage activists. The Trump campaign said it had received more than 1 million requests to attend the rally.
As the media and the Democrats continue to try and control the narrative, don't be fooled.
They were all wrong in 2016, and they don't appear to learn from their own mistakes.
