1) 1/3 to 1/2 of the upper deck wasn't empty, but nice try; that was one section, not the entire upper deck. I watched the video, too.

2) The arena WAS NOT filled to capacity. A simple online search will tell you that the capacity of the arena is almost 11,800 persons, while the fire marshal said that 11,500 people showed up. Of course, that's all for naught as there were 8,000-9,000 people watching the event on jumbo screens outside.

Want to try again?

Meanwhile, at rallies for democratic candidates empty seats regularly outnumber occupied ones by a fair margin.

DAMN.
Once again ... the people on the floor is part of the capacity of the event. All political rallies and concerts in arenas like that have standing room on the floor, which is usually the first thing they fill up, not the last.

Trump haters can't try again. All they can do, is ignore what you said and keep repeating the same lies over and over, as JB0 does here.

1. That is a lie, it was not just 1 section of the upper deck, it was most of the upper deck. So no, you did not watch the video.
2. Well then you just admitted that Trump did not fill the arena to capacity. Thank you.

Again, the arena wasn't filled to capacity. No one is claiming that, so that's another fatal flaw to your argument. The capacity of the arena is 11,800. 11,500 people showed up to the arena, with another 8,000-9,000 watching the event outside. But this 11,5000 was still a record turnout for the arena, passing the 11,300 for Elton John some years back.

But the narrative that Trump is seeing dwindling crowds--which is what this thread and the Tweet at issue are insinuating--is demonstrably false given all what I have discussed per the official count from the fire marshal and by the thousands watching outside.

1) Nope. Funny, even by your own words earlier, 1/3 to 1/2 wouldn't be "most of the upper deck." What is it going to be, JB?

2) No one is claiming that the arena was filled to capacity. You're lying and in denial, which has been clear since you starting posting in this thread despite being supplied with evidence to contradict everything you're posting. Instead of bowing out with grace and admitting that you were mistaken, you continue to double down on a lie, which is really something I tell you.

Meanwhile outside the arena....
Unlike the Shell refinery workers who were told no pay that day if they did not attend the rally and not to disrupt it?

And so marks the moment when lefties realize this thread is bogus and try to change the subject.
