Why were throngs of Trump fans reportedly watching from OUTSIDE the rally stadium?


The turnout for President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies is so great, that he has to hold them in vast arenas that seat thousands.

A feat no Democratic candidate in the 2020 presidential election will dare attempt to duplicate. And with thousands and thousands showing up, standing in massive lines for hours, the left’s only reprieve is to hope and pray for a few empty seats they can manipulate to claim Trump’s support is waning — the biggest challenge with the partisan back and forth is putting an accurate timestamp on photos being displayed.

An example of lines seen at Thursday night’s rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, was shared in the tweet below from the Trump campaign:

As for empty seats, the left got their wish at Thursday night’s rally, as photos appear to show a number of empty seats in SNHU Arena, which has a capacity of 11,770.

And right on cue, the naysayers pounced.

But there was another interesting phenomenon occurring at Thursday night’s rally, a huge throng of people outside the arena – who reportedly could not get in – watching Trump speak on a jumbotron.

There were a number of tweets about the hundreds, if not thousands outside who were unable to get into the arena.

More than enough to fill the empty seats seen in the photos above.

Of course, the risk of holding events in Democratic strongholds is that Trump must depend on local officials to ensure a timely, orderly process of admitting rally goers. Given that he is the president of the United States, added security is required, which makes for a more complicated process.

An example of this was seen at a recent rally in Orlando, Florida, where everyone was required to enter the Amway Center facility grounds through a single gate.

While petty-minded Trump haters were hanging on a few empty seats, the president took to Twitter to celebrate breaking the “all-time attendance record” at SNHU Arena.

He tweeted: “Great news! Tonight, we broke the all-time attendance record previously held by Elton John at #SNHUArena in Manchester, New Hampshire!”

As stated above, it’s difficult to access the validity of photos shared online, but if the numerous images of a sizable crowd forced to watch outside the arena are even close to being an accurate portrayal, the question remains why were there so many open seats?

Inquiring minds would like to know.
