(Liberty Bell) – That awkward moment when your guy is so unpopular, you have to try to rig the other guy’s rallies just to cover for the fact that his base is stronger than ever.
Oh, poor Biden supporters.
All those polls that Democrats look toward to try to claim that their presumptive nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, will win November’s general election start to look rather laughable when you consider that leftists are trying to rig Trump’s rally sign-ups to give the impression that he’s less popular than he is.
Just the News reports that a left-wing political group and individuals are using social media to try to rally anti-Trumpers to reserve tickets for the president’s upcoming rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
In August of last year, the president hosted a lively, well-attended rally in the battleground state.
“Get your tickets and don’t go,” wrote one Twitter user on Monday.
The rally is scheduled for this Saturday, his second after a June rally in Tulsa.
Ahead of that rally, as you may recall, Chinese-owned TikTok users perpetuated a campaign to reserve tickets that would have otherwise been claimed by Trump supporters.
When the rally had a smaller-than-expected turnout, the left claimed victory, without considering the facts.
Setting aside completely the fact that users of a social media network that has long been suspected of conveying private data to the Chinese government, the rally was actually first-come, first-serve so, as is often the case with Trump rallies, his supporters would have showed up even without reserved tickets.
The rally was the first since widespread coronavirus shutdowns and came in the midst of ongoing civil unrest in several major American cities.
So it’s far more likely that these far more significant factors contributed to the smaller crowd sizes, rather than tickets reserved by people who weren’t going to show up.
Nonetheless, they’re trying the same tactic for NH.
Do they not realize that this signals desperation and a willingness to actually rig the election rather than honestly win it?
“If you have two minutes of your day to troll the president….Reserve two tickets and laugh knowing that’s two seats not filled,” another Twitter user instructed fellow Trump-haters.
“Just booked 2 tickets to Trump’s rally in NH that I won’t be going to,” bragged another.
Another person encouraged his followers to sign up for the tickets using “incorrect information” but to use a real phone number.
Just the News also notes:
A liberal Facebook group called Blue Revolution, which has more than 60,000 members, posted the RSVP link for Trump’s rally scheduled for Saturday and encouraged its members to reserve spots.
“You know what to do,” the post reads. “Get couple tickets, comment ‘DONE’ below.”
A TikTok user posted a video on Monday about reserving tickets to the upcoming rally with graphics that read, “Make Trump sad again” and “Lets troll Trump like we did with the Tulsa rally!!!”
