4. I agree! Read next up Arizona and Wisconsin. Wonder

What they will do to combat? Like only issue to AZ cell phone #s for their rally, for instance? Or have local seat fillers? That's what makes no sense, weren't there tons of people outside in Tulsa?

5. Nobody bought tickets - they were free, TikTok had nothing to do with low turnout

There were an infinite number of tickets available, as they harvested data from over a million requests.

The tiktokers pranked Trump on expected turnout, but had no effect on actual turnout- that was all Trump and COVID.

6. Here's the truth about all this TikTok stuff:

https://apple.news/AFgLnUTtYSTWei4Roikp_VA

“ As the story spread throughout social media, it became slightly twisted — like a message at the end of a game of telephone. The common refrain shifted from “TikTokers and K-pop fans lead Trump to overestimate his crowd” to “TikTokers and K-pop fans are the reason fewer than 6,200 people showed up to the event.” The former assertion is almost certainly true to some degree, but the latter is not only unlikely but probably false.”

7. Both can be true, IMHO. Tiktokers caused campaign to THINK

That a million wanted to be there. And also, not that many real fans actually showed up.

The campaign blew it because if they had known only 6000 people would show up, they would have done something - like prolly cancel. If they moved to a smaller venue that would have been noticed.

10. Lots said that they weren't old enough to vote and this was their way

To express their displeasure. It's so heartening!!
