Again?! Trump Campaign Strands Rallygoers in the Cold for a Third Time, This Time in Georgia

For the third time in less than a week, President Donald Trump’s campaign ran into a transportation snafu that left hundreds of people stranded after his rallies.

As the 2020 election comes to a close, Trump held a rally at the Richard B. Russell Regional Airport in Rome, Georgia on Sunday night. Loads of Trump fans attended the event as the president ginned up support while the state remains in play.

Newsweek reports that thousands of people were bussed to the event, but when it was over, there weren’t nearly enough shuttle buses to accommodate everyone. NBC News’ Julie Tsirkin took multiple videos from the aftermath of the rally, documenting scores of people who had to await transportation for hours in windy 46-degree weather.

“Some of the folks left stranded were older and disabled,” Tsirkin reported. “Multiple people tried to hitch rides from strangers amid the pandemic.”

Needs to be framed as a metaphor for how he has left the entire country out in the cold over the last 4 years.

11. So I guess fox propaganda didn't cover the other rallies where this happened?

So, actually, by fox calling themselves "news", they are endangering people's lives by not giving them fair warning of what to expect?

Or did they cover the other two? I don't watch propaganda, whether it's fox or russian news, so I don't know.

17. If it makes Trump look bad, they ignore it.

I'm absolutely certain that Trumpers who only watch Fox or Newmax or OANN were woefully uninformed about the other incidences.

4. Ah,

The masochists are welcome to their abuse.

"Oh, Dear Leader, I will suffer FOR YOU!"

If they don't get the fact that Predator Grump abandons everyone and throws them under a bus if they are not considered useful to him anymore, then they really deserve their punishment at this point. It is the platform he runs on.

MAGAts are disgusting and he can discard them like flakes of dandruff. There is no empathy or care in there.

When was this not totally obvious? Oh, you have to PAY ATTENTION.

6. These haven't been "Snafu's".. they have been stiffing the bus companies......

Greed and arrogance. Plain and simple.

Calling it a snafu makes it sound like an accident, blunder, or oversight. This was intentional.

12. Exactly. This isn't an accident; it's a feature.

If you're going to go to one of his rallies, you have to expect that you're going to be left high and dry.

Just like if you VOTE for trump; you're going to be left high and dry.

24. It was reported....

Don't have links but it was reported that in the first case, the bus company was told they would be paid when they dropped off the passengers. They weren't and left.

Similar reports are out there for at least one other case.

That explains how they got in but couldn't get out.

nobody gets covid because of the precautions, and they attend in their ride home. It would be nice to have the election go as smoothly.

9. He's short on cash so only pays one way

The last bit annoyed me

Tsirkin reported. “Multiple people tried to hitch rides from strangers amid the pandemic.”


They were bussed in among strangers and stayed at the rally. Probably not wearing masks the whole time. This reporter should be calling out the entire event as reckless spread of covid, not just the ride home.

Pretty clear with this third instance of the same problem that they’re deliberately leaving their supporters out in the cold to save money

35. In at least one case the bus drivers ditched them because they refused to mask up

And then there's always the question of whether the bus drivers were getting paid what they were promised

How else to do it? Everyone knows, including those he abandoned, that all’s fair when you stiff on your bills. The MAGATs should pay their own way anyway for the privilege.
