Trump draws YUGE crowd in sparsely populated MT, Obama draws sparse crowd in DEEP BLUE Illinois

I’ll cut to the chase;

  • President Trump held a rally last night at the Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark in Billings, Montana.
  • Bathhouse Barry held a rally today at Foellinger Auditorium, located on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

OK, so far I’ve cited specifically where both rallies were held.

Let’s go a bit deeper…

I guess it goes without saying that both Billings and Urbana would qualify as medium sized cities. So how close are either to any given political party’s large-sized city?

  • The largest Republican stronghold closest to Billings would be Salt Lake City, UT, a city with a metro area of slightly larger than a million. SLC is also a 9-hour drive from Billings.
  • However, the Democrat stronghold of Chicago has a population of nearly 10 million people. Oh, by the way, Greater Chicagoland is a mere hour drive to Urbana.

Kristen Inbody of the Great Falls (MT) Tribune reported that the particular venue President Trump held the rally of the party faithful was attended by 10,000 people.

According to the official website of the University of Illinois, specifics in regards to venue information for Foellinger Auditorium;

  • Following are the number of seats in the auditorium by level.
  • Main floor: 723 seats
  • Second floor: 638 seats
  • Total: 1,361 seats

You mean to tell me in Obama’s backyard, the best venue they could get for their official rock star was a lecture hall?

Why didn’t Team Obummer lock on Chicago’s Soldier Field? That stadium hold 67,000 people.

But I’m sure CNN and MSNBC did everything in their power to give the illusion that thousands upon thousands of people actually give a damn about Obama stuttering his way through a speech.

The internet-based vets advocacy group Veterans Assisting Veterans have taken aim at a number of Massachusetts politicians and the senior senator from Arizona, but specifically Sen. Elizabeth Warren for what they see as her “‘selfish political theater’ and demanding they put veterans’ services at the top of their list — or feel the heat.” Continue reading “Massachusetts vets slam Warren, McCain: Favors ‘illegal immigrants over US Veterans’”
