20,000 faithful from Illinois and Michigan showed up today in Grand Haven, Michigan. 87 degrees, sun and a state unlocked run by Democrats. Beer, bikinis and no politics. In Tulsa, however, a national disaster, but at least a little one.
When no one showed up, working groups were set up, first deciding who to blame and others setting up phone banks, calling local religious leaders, anyone, who could get people to show up while suitcases of cash were spread around…and still an empty stadium…and this is a basketball arena, not a football stadium…one sized for a downtown of 300k. (only 13,000 seats)
Donald Trump just made a fool of himself in front of a half-empty arena in Tulsa. So we made this rapid-response ad to show the world how terrible his performance was. Share this far and wide to make Trump's bad night even worse. #TrumpRallyFail pic.twitter.com/Zi8uPLQJwp— MeidasTouch.com (@MeidasTouch) June 21, 2020

Well, the reviews are in and you laid an egg in Tulsa! And man, you were sweating bullets up there. The optics were lousy, but the yawns were infectious! Even I was yawning. Try not to kill off your entire base. Another night like this and they'll die of boredom.

Metallica sets a single concert record. At 19,228 it's a sellout.

“Patrolling the city?” More likely chowing down somewhere.
In his first major rally in months, President Trump made multiple statements that were false, misleading or lacked evidence. Here's a fact-check. https://t.co/1NPdM6lvCU— The New York Times (@nytimes) June 21, 2020
The deranged orange man who gave that speech in Tulsa is the Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces.— VoteVets (@votevets) June 21, 2020
He is a threat to national security.
He is a threat to our troops and their families.
He is a threat to everything we served to defend.
It’s not funny. It’s not a joke.

Trump’s campaign reboot flopped like Windows Vista. His followers stayed home while his opponents danced in the streets of Tulsa tonight.— Tea Pain (@TeaPainUSA) June 21, 2020
Rest assured Trump had one of the most miserable days of his presidency. He knows he’s gonna lose.
