A 51-year-old Iowa woman has led an effort get President Donald Trump to address an empty auditorium when he speaks at a campaign rally next week. Mary Jo Laupp posted a video on video sharing platform TikTok last week encouraging her followers to register for Trump’s campaign rally in Oklahoma and then not attend. The plan is designed to purchase as many tickets as possible, forcing the president to address a largely empty auditorium on June 20. “All of those of us that want to see this 19,000 seat auditorium barely filled or completely empty go reserve tickets now and leave him standing alone there on the stage,”

Comments:

Yeah, THATS gonna be successful!! They'll leave those seats empty and all those people waiting outside of the arena will just be out of luck!! /extreme sarc

Sigh: Why are Leftists/Dems/Liberals/SJWs so stupid? Ever been to a Trump rally? There are at least 5 times as many people outside the venues as in. If (Dem) ticketholders were not to show (this assumes her silly scheme works; people aren't disciplined enough to actualize it) the organizers would just open the doors until the place filled. I almost feel sorry for this grandma's naivete. Almost.

Please make all the contributions to the Trump campaign that you can muster. The rally holds 20,000 people plus overflow. Trump supporters seem to be well over 20 times that many. Buy up all the tickets for the Iowa rally idiot.

The Democrats are running scared. This is proof. Why are so many people trying to get tickets if Pres. Trump is so hated? Only the Progressive/Communists are afraid of him. They know he is going to win by a landslide and are doing everything in their power to make sure he loses.

This lame brain must imagine that there are reserved seats.....not the case. If you have a ticket and don't show up, one of the other 1 MILLION people who signed up will fill those seats, dummy. Over 1 million want to attend, 19,000 seats. I think there will probably be 30 or 40,000 outside, so ZERO chance that this idiot's scheme will do anything. And i, too, noted that she chose the ChiCom TicTok to post on, like any good leftist, anti-American would do.

Funny, because to register for a ticket you have to give your name and number and email and other information and give the campaign the right to sell and use and market it. I'm sure Ms. Laupp's friends will forever thank her for Trump and other Republicans calling and emailing and trying to get money from them. Not too clever by half - but too clever by half-wit.

Proof #86,552,397 that you can't be lie-beral if you have more than 8 working brain cells!!! And this idiot sounds like she is about 6 brain cells short of that. There will be thousands of people outside this auditorium. Even if her plan worked (which there isn't a bat's chance in Hell that it will), they would simple let in those waiting outside to fill the empty seats. As I said, anyone with more than 8 working brain cells would know that...

We all know people like this. A LOT of middle ages women are consumed with bitterness. Life didn't go the way they wanted or they hate being ignored, etc. Incredibly shortsighted about everything, but propelled by emotion. ALL she can think of is somehow depriving PRESIDENT Trump of a crowd. That is the extent of her ambition or world view. She is worse than a misbehaving child. The child is ignorant, she is willfully stupid, because you have to work hard to be this dumb.

If the tickets really had to be "purchased" there's no way here idea would get any takers. But Trump rally tickets are FREE. When you arrive, ticket or not, you get in on a 1st come, 1st served basis until capacity is reached and all overflow rooms are full. Then large screen TVs are set up for the rest who still can't get in.

I agree with all the previous posters, she's not the sharpest kife in the drawer. Then there's the problem of paying for the tickets. Libs don't spend their own money, it has to be government (taxpayers)money. And all of this because of some Texas celebration that they want to make national. I don't think it's made national status yet, but I noticed yesterday that it was now on my smart phone calendar.

Following up on O.P. ... it might be Mary Jo's worst nightmare if what she is seeking actually happens. Imagine Trump going in to an empty arena, only to come outside and hold his rally before a ginormous overflow crowd in front of the place. It could help thwart the dreams of NeverTrumpers (who are hoping all his supporters get the Wuhan Flu and die), since it is reportedly much less transmissible outdoors, anyway.

A friend who works for a conservative website shared an email with me that was sent to the staff, “We have to be careful” about how they write about Black Lives Matter, it said. Not because what they were reporting was inaccurate, but because it could upset the mob, and upsetting the mob nowadays is worse than being inaccurate. “Truth” can be whatever you want it to be, the mob, on the other hand, can seemingly make reality anything they want it to be by force of will or worse.

The 130-year-old brand features a Black woman named Aunt Jemima, who was originally dressed as a minstrel character. The picture has changed over time, and in recent years Quaker removed the “mammy” kerchief from the character to blunt growing criticism that the brand perpetuated a racist stereotype that dated to the days of slavery. But Quaker, a (Snip) said removing the image and name is part of an effort by the company “to make progress toward racial equality.”

Rayshard Brooks was on probation and faced going back to prison if he was charged with a DUI, DailyMail.com can reveal. It was the fear of incarceration that likely caused Brooks to panic in the face of imminent arrest and caused him to make a break for it.

Fiona Onasanya, a Black Lives Matter activist and former member of the UK parliament, claims that Kellogg’s Rice Krispies is a racist cereal because it has “three white boys” as mascots.
