Do all of Trump's rallies fill stadiums like this?

Just wondering, because we keep hearing about how popular he is and how there are thousands of people just waiting to get in.

So, just like his inauguration, I suspect that he's lying about how many people actually show up to these things.

Has anyone actually been to one? I remember driving by one on the way through the city of Wilkes Barre, PA, and not seeing that many people; however, I did pass by one of his rallies in Philadelphia, which seemed like quite a few people attended.

Odd. I am looking at video from the event with many empty seats.

Crisis actors fill the seats mostly these days.

Trump rallies are fun and packed. I went to one in Buffalo NY (before he became PotUS) and it was a packed affair. When he swings by again I will go as well.

He must spend a pretty penny filling those seats.

I mean it’s not like there were thousands of people still outside (not talking about protesters) when the doors were closed...

A recent speech Trump gave at a Shell manufacturing facility.

He says the same shit over and over so I'm not sure why anybody would want to donate their time listening to him. It's like watching a stand up comedian.

Because this tweet became relatively popular, the interesting side of this is that the venue had a capacity of 11,770 and there were approximately 11500 in attendance (98% full), not including the 8000 that were in overflow. I'm assuming the 2% seats were pre-purchased, and like most venues, there will be a variable percentage of individuals who can't make it, or sold their tickets/attempted to profit off tickets.

lol. It looks like people are going toTrump's goofy rallies because Republican donors are forcing their employees to go under threat of being fired without pay. OMFGLOL

You are mistaken the Democrat rallies for Trump Rallies. Warren just had a rally with only seven hundred in attendance and the media referred to it as a packed house. Maybe it was if the venue only held a small number of people. People line up for Trump rallies hours in advance to get into them. It is the Dems who have to pay people to attend their rallies.

No I'm not. Some of his crowd have stated as such. You're being dishonest about facts.

Not only do we know for a fact that he pays people, his business owner supporters (yes, there are ones dumb enough to support him) force their employees to attend.

ROFL.

He packs venues of 20,000 or more with people outside trying to get in, he doesn't have to pay people to come. It is well known the DNC pays people to attend his rallies to cause trouble and supply misinformation.

That's pretty good for a Democrat but not even close to Trump.

I tried to get tickets for an AOC performance but they were sold out everywhere! Insane.
