Organizers of a Kentucky rally in support of former President Donald Trump featuring several prominent allies and conspiracy theorists expected some 10,000 people to show up this weekend. Instead, less than 300 were in attendance when local journalists attempted to cover the proceedings. The "We the People Reunion" was held at the Muhlenberg County Agriculture & Convention Center Fairgrounds in Powderly, Kentucky, on Friday and Saturday. MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, retired General Michael Flynn, attorney Lin Wood and others were among the featured speakers, according to the event and ticket page online.

Local channel WFIE 14 News sent a team to shoot video at the event on Friday but was later asked to leave, according to a report broadcast by the NBC News affiliate. The news channel reported that promoters had expected a crowd of about 10,000 people but less than 300 were in attendance from what their journalists saw. Event organizers reportedly refused to speak to WFIE about the rally.

Photos and videos of the event posted to social media appeared to show only a few hundred people in attendance.

While many recent pro-Trump events featuring Lindell, Flynn and the other conservative figures have been free, Forward Kentucky reported that the tickets for the We the People Reunion were starting at $125. General admission "plus" tickets were sold for $250 and VIP tickets were going for $500.

That mailing list is worth a fortune to fraudsters.

Unfortunately for the fraudsters, another one dies every minute too.

Covid is literally wiping out the Trumper base.
Too bad, so sad, bye bye!

Your basic Trump crowd seems to be drawn from the same sludge pool of the population from which sprang the natural audience for the raucous geek shows of yore. But what to do, when the freak pursuing the chickens in the ring and biting their heads off isn't enough anymore, doesn't keep them in your grip, Mr. Trump? How you gonna manage the monster's insatiable appetite and literally fantastical expectations?

Got to pay for those billion dollar lawsuits the voting machine companies have brought against them somehow.
