The Republican Lincoln Project caught President Donald Trump’s “size problem”– the average turnout at his Tulsa, Oklahoma, campaign rally– in an attack ad entitled “Shrinking.”
“Hey, Donald,” the ad starts. “Your campaign manager told you a million fans wanted to come to your first big rally. Turnout in Tulsa? A dud.”
As the video shows a closeup of Trump’s small hands, the female storyteller snidely includes: “You’ve probably heard this before, but it was smaller than we expected. It sure wasn’t as big as you promised.”
She includes: “You talk a big game.”
Donald Trump “can’t deliver on his wall. He can’t deliver on COVID-19 testing. And now he can’t even deliver crowds,” Lincoln Project co-founder and Republican media expert Rick Wilson stated in a declaration.
The ad was out less than 24 hours after the remarkably low turnout in Tulsa for a rally that was expected to boost Trump’s coronavirus-idled reelection campaign.
Trump boasted that over a million advocates had actually registered to cheer him at the 19,000- capability BOK Center arena. His campaign likewise reserved the surrounding convention center, which hold an extra 40,000 fans.
The Tulsa fire marshal reported Sunday that less than 6,200 tickets were scanned for the rally, leaving big, open areas of blue seats in the BOK Center as Trump spoke.
The convention center was not required. Trump canceled his strategies to speak with the overflow crowd, considering that there was none.
