Trump Throws Himself A Monday Rally Only To Find That No One Cares

Mod: The Donald called for big rallies yesterday to show us the yuge love he has in this country. Coming just ahead of tonight's big speech before Congress, it was supposed to warn the swamp that it had better get on the Trump Train because of his vast support out in the real America. So how'd it go? Mmm, not so good.

Trump Throws Himself A Monday Rally Only To Find That No One Cares (Bipartisan Report link): Donald Trump has been going on and on about the size of the crowds when he speaks, ever since the empty bleachers that were photographed at his inauguration. Last week President Trump requested for his supporters to hold “massive” rallies in his favor. On Monday, they did their best to please him, but they showed how little support Trump really has.

While projecting the size of pro-Trump rallies, Trump mused on Twitter:


Although he predicted for them to be the biggest, he was incredibly wrong. Pictures from rallies throughout the country show very little attendance, with the most people in a single location being a couple of hundred.

Daniel Dale, a reporter for Toronto Star, tweeted some pictures that he found circulating on Twitter that showed the “massive” crowds that appeared at Trump rallies. Even Breitbart, which is a pro-Trump news site, projected for a massive turnout.


Now to take a closer look at individual locations where pro-Trump rallies were held. Raleigh, North Carolina had only a few dozen people:


In downtown Atlanta, Georgia, the crowd size wasn’t much different with “tens of people.”


St. Augustine, Florida had a slight increase of crowd population with about 100 people in support of Trump.


A local photographer in Denver, Colorado estimated about 200 people showed up.


Meanwhile, there were the residents of Bellingham, Washington, who stood in the pouring rain and gave anti-Trump activists a good laugh.


Mod: Judging by this showing of national fervor, I can't wait for tonight's speech.

  1. I can't wait for tonights speech either, it should be extremly informative.
    President Trump has answered so much of his campaign promises and signed Executive Orders, protecting the rights of this countries citizens. Created more jobs, and deregulated job killing restrictions.
    If he had his full Cabinet appointments in place, he would be further ahead in MAGA.
    My rally in stocks soared yesterday, I continue to be pleased.

    4. Illegal aliens have no Constitutional rights here. It's time you Clinton Clowns grasp that. "Illegal" means that they broke our laws to come here. It means there was no vetting process. You may be happy with that but the rest of us are not. "Civil rights" apply to citizens.

    6. What did any "illegals" do to you 1:23? Take away your job? What's the matter? Are you finding it hard to compete with them?

      You seem to be.a "law is the law" type of person, so can we assume that you turn yourself in every time you exceed the speed limit? Or is your "law is the law" stance just very thinly veiled bigotry?

  2. I'm not conceding the crowd sizes were small for Trump. That may be attributed to the fake news that is so commonplace now. But even if the were it just tells me that Trump supporters know we won the election and a lot of good things are getting done. Why hold a rally when everything is going great? Most of us have jobs and things to do. Who has time to be in a rally. Let the left hold their protests every day for the next 4 and perhaps 8 years while we live our lives, earn money and spend time with our family. After all, what better things does the left have to do.

    2. The fake news came from Breitbart when they said the turnout yesterday would be massive. That was obvious nonsense. However, it was refreshing to see Breitbart step back from their advocacy of man-boy sex.

  3. Here's a nice old 227 year old quote that would seem to apply to a whole host of programs, including Romney-Obamacare:

    "Whoever considers the nature of our government with discernment will see that though obstacles and delays will frequently stand in the way of adoption of good measures, yet when once adopted, they are likely to be stable and permanent. It will be far more difficult to undo than to do." A. Hamilton - 1790

  5. Mod, what's wrong with pointing out that those Trump supporters loitering around during the workweek would be better off educating and retraining themselves and looking for one of the millions of jobs Obama created after W & Co. crashed the economy?

    What's wrong with saying a better slogan than Make America Great Again is Get Off Your A** and Get a Job?

  13. Lindsey Graham Says Trump's First Budget Is 'Dead On Arrival'

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Tuesday that President Donald Trump's budget outline is "dead on arrival" and that proposed cuts to State Department funding "would be a disaster."

    "It's dead on arrival. It's not going to happen. It would be a disaster," Graham said.

    He said that if Trump limits the State Department's ability to exercise "soft power" he is "never going to win the war."

    "What's most disturbing about the cut in the State Department's budget, it shows a lack of understanding," Graham said.

    1. CNN: Why Trump's Tuesday speech isn't a State of the Union address

      President Donald Trump is set to give an address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday -- but it technically won't be his first State of the Union address.

      Trump isn't shaking up any traditions -- as he is known to do -- but instead following what past presidents have done before him. His speech will be known as an "address to a joint session."

      Traditionally, a president of the United States should be in office for a year before they give their first State of the Union address.

      In a State of the Union address, the president usually reflects back on the past year and how the nation is doing, as well as uses the opportunity to highlight the administration's legislative agenda -- which needs congressional support -- and priorities for the country.

      The Constitution states that the president "shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient."

      However, it is expected that Trump will use Tuesday's speech to continue outlining his goals for his administration.
