The White House's Attempt To Explain Trump's Tiny Rally Turnout Is As Nonsensical As You'd Expect

It's fair to say that Donald Trump didn't have a great weekend.
After claiming that a million people had requested tickets for his much-celebrated rally in Tulsa on Saturday evening, it must have been difficult to enter an arena with 19,000 seats and just 6,200 residents.
In fact, the president himself seemed to confirm his depressed mood when he returned to the White House after the event. A walk that lacked enthusiasm triggered a meme.

The look of a man who knows that this is the beginning of the end of his failed presidency.

After the rally flopped, the White House came out swinging, trying to blame everyone except the president for the poor presence.
During an interview with Fox News Sunday, Trump's campaign advisor Mercedes Schlapp blamed the demonstrators for the overwhelming attendance and said they "absolutely" prevented people from traveling to the rally.
This line has already been advertised by Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh and Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, although there was no evidence.
Host Chris Wallace had no claim from Schlapp and emphasized the fact that overflow events for 40,000 people in a nearby convention center were canceled.
"You were so far away that you planned an outdoor rally and there wasn't a crowded crowd," said Wallace. “The demonstrators did not stop people from coming to this rally. The fact is that people have not shown up. "

Unimpressed by reality, the White House also tried to hold the media responsible that it might not be a good idea to hold an indoor rally amid a global pandemic.

@ Parscale
Radical demonstrators, fueled by a week of apocalyptic media coverage, bothered @realDonaldTrump's supporters at the rally.

They even blocked access to the metal detectors and prevented people from entering.

Many thanks to the 1000s who made it anyway!

The campaign later stressed claims that millions of viewers saw Trump "across the campaign's digital media channels."
In a statement, he added: "The media that encouraged protesters and bombarded Americans for more than a week with dismal warnings about attending a Trump rally still can't stop President Trump from reaching the people."
Trump said last Monday that his campaign was expecting a "record-breaking amount" at the rally.
"We have never had a vacancy and will certainly not be in Oklahoma," he added.
