All Democratic leader, celebrities blasted and mock Trump after attendance become lower than expected in ally in Tulsa, Okla.
“President Trump is rallying in Tulsa with thousands of energetic supporters, a stark contrast to the sleepy campaign being run by Joe Biden from his basement in Delaware,” communications director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement.
“Sadly, protestors interfered with supporters, even blocking access to the metal detectors, which prevented people from entering the rally,” he added.
While the Trump campaign stated a lot of tickets has been purchased
Lieu also mocked the president’s campaign after it cancelled plans for Trump and Pence to address supporters in an overflow space outside the arena.
“I believe the correct word would be ‘underflow.’ The small number of people at the #TrumpTulsaRally has now become a big embarrassment for @realDonaldTrump,” he wrote.
The decision to withheld Tulsa rally has been viewed by some as controversial amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Coronavirus cases have spiked in Oklahoma in recent days, and the Trump campaign confirmed Saturday that six staffers who travelled to Tulsa ahead of the rally had tested positive for the coronavirus.
