Trump’s Disastrous Turn Out At Tulsa Rally - Why Millennials, Gen Z Tik Tokers & K-Pop Stans Are The Real MVPs

​ ​ ​ ​

Trump’s Tulsa rally was a total FLOP and he’s reportedly pissed! And we can thank social media for that! Deets on why there were SO MANY empty seats at the rally and more inside…

Donald Trump hyped up his return to the campaign trail (due to COVID-19) only to be let down by his supporters. It was first reported Trump would return to the campaign trail by hosting his first rally in Tulsa, OK on June 19th, which is the day people celebrate Juneteenth. Trump moved the rally to a day later "out of respect” for the holiday.  Not necessarily because Tulsa is the site of one of the most vicious acts of racial violence in American history: The Black Wall Street Massacre.

“I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “It’s actually an important event, an important time,” Trump argued, “But nobody had ever heard of it.”

Thankfully, most people didn't entertain this asinine and blatantly false statement.

 

Before the rally, Trump bragged that over 1 million people had signed up to receive tickets to the rally. "Almost One Million people requested tickets for the Saturday Night Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma!,” he tweeted.

However, nowhere NEAR that amount of people showed up. According to the Tulsa Fire Department, just fewer than 6,200 people filled the Bank of Oklahoma Center, an arena that can hold just more than 19,000. Tragic.

Also, there was an overflow area built outside for supporters, but there weren’t enough people there to use it, so organizers had to break it down. Embarrassing.

It’s reported Trump gazed in “horror” at the sea of empty seats at his rally and raged at aides over it.

Looks like there was a special section for some of his voters:

We know all black people are not a monolith, but at the very least, don’t stand for being disrespectfully exploited by being stuffed in two specific rows for camera ops.

Just in case you missed last night’s entertainment.

Famed Trump supporters Diamond and Silk served up foolery as they have been doing since Trump was elected president.

Trump’s team tried to blame #BlackLivesMatter protesters for the smaller-than-expected crowd, calling them “bad people” at the beginning of his near 2-hour speech. And, yu guessed it, he said nothing about his MAGA supporers who often interrupted peaceful protests around the country with their guns and racial slurs and "counter protesting" in a mob style.

Also, right before the rally, it was revealed six Trump campaign staffers tested positive for COVID-19. Masks were given out during the rally due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but people were not required to wear them if they didn't want to. Trump didn't wear one.

Turns out, a social media movement may be to blame when Trump’s turnout was so low. Several videos have been posted on social media by Tik Tokers who have been trolling Trump. They claim they reached out for tickets to Trump’s rally with all intentions on NOT going. Days leading up to the event, Tik Tokers encouraged their followers to register online for the free event, using an Oklahoma zip code, and simply NOT go.

K-Pop fans were also summoned to join in on the coordinated effort. The K-Pop fan base is HUGE and are a huge force on social media. Earlier this month, K-Pop fans rallied around the Black Lives Matter movement where they muted the "White Lives Matter" and other anti-Black hashtags.

Peep some of their videos below:

Who knew TikTok would go from an app for dancing teens to political action?! Not even mad!

There's more than one way to protest.
