I suppose one can't reasonably expect a bear to squat on a toilet.

What utter nonsense.

The Toyota Center has a capacity of 18,000 not 100,000. Your two-week old article even says so.

Yes, it says over 100,000 people showed up though.

I was amazed to hear about it. That people would wait in line 36 hours, camp out overnight, then wait more inside, for a chance to see Trump.

Your article says no such thing at all.

It refers to "ticket requests for the event exceeded 100,000" which in light of Trump's known facility for hiring "supporters" could either be wholly false ab initio or could easily be made to reach 100,000 with the assistance of people working keyboards to make the requests. But I'm going with the outright lying, Trump is too lazy to hire people to make the requests.

In any event, your article nowhere claims that 100,000 people showed up.


President Trump’s crowd-size estimates: Increasingly unbelievable

The Washington Post has now fully exposed the Trump hoax about the Houston rally, along with many others:

Quote:
“Fifty thousand people outside. Who we love. And we put big screens out for them. Let’s wave to them. Wave!” (Rally in Houston, Oct. 22)

“We have — the other night in Houston, the Houston Rockets, the arena, packed, set a new record. Outside, tens of thousands of people, 109,000 people — 109,000 people wanted to come.” (Trump remarks, Oct. 26)

“We had over 100,000 people that wanted to come. We had 22,000 people in the arena. We had thousands and thousands of people outside of the arena.” (Trump remarks, Nov. 2)

According to the Houston police chief, Art Acevedo, 18,000 to 19,000 were in the venue for Trump’s rally and 3,000 watched on a big screen outside.

“The arena seats 18,000. Many hundreds of seats were empty, including all of the boxes on both tiers of the mezzanine,” the Dallas Morning News reported.

Rally going smoothly. 18 - 19 thousand inside @ToyotaCenter for rally. @houstonpolice airship providing overwatch, approximate about 3,000 folks outside enjoying rally. Thank you all participants & protestors for your peaceful & orderly participation. #RelationalPolicing pic.twitter.com/LDGnetxdwZ

So, according to the paper, the president didn’t fill the venue, and the crowd outside seems to have been a paltry 6 percent of Trump’s grandiose estimate of 50,000.

Total attendance inside and outside the venue appears to have been roughly 20,000, representing fewer than half the people who attended a concert in Austin with Willie Nelson and Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke. (That event did draw more than 50,000 attendees, according to the Dallas Morning News.)

Trump’s campaign claimed 109,000 people registered for tickets to this Houston rally. Again, though, this is not a measure of the actual crowd size. Anyone could go online and register for two free tickets.

Trump is a showman.

You shouldn't expect factualness.

A carnival of horrors. Sideshow Bob would be a better president perhaps?

the shade cast by a giant pile of dung would make a better president.

"that's one big pile of $#!+." [quote from a movie whose rampaging dinos chomped on a lawyer hiding in an outhouse]. I could think of more food for those dinos whose giant piles of dung would cast the shadow that's better than the present POTUS.
