On Saturday in Wyoming, America’s 45th President Donald Trump took the stage at his rally to oppose Rep. Liz Cheney in her reelection. An announcer at the event said that Trump had the biggest crowd in state history.
Trump endorsed Harriet Hageman in the primary for Wyoming’s single Congressional seat and used the rally to round up support for her.
“Ladies and gentlemen,” the event announcer exclaimed as Trump came to the stage, “we are pleased to announce, this is the biggest crowd in Wyoming history! And with that, I ask you to please welcome the 45th President of the United States, President Donald J. Trump!”
A false report was spread online and in the media quickly before the rally. Raw Story ran a piece that the former president could not the fill the story. The story was based on a later-updated tweet by Bryan Schott, who works for Salt Lake Tribune according to his bio.
The story spread that the rally was under attended, but visual evidence shows the contrary. Raw Story was forced to issue a correction to their article admitting “that Trump failed to fill the stadium in Wyoming” and that the “stadium was filled, by the time the former president spoke.”
Schott updated his twitter post to show that Trump’s rally was in fact packed by the time Trump spoke.
“The network here at the arena has been slow as hell, so I haven’t had a chance to update this. The house was PACKED when Trump hit the stage about 4:40 pm,” Schott wrote.
Dan Scavino Jr. posted on his twitter footage of the crowd size as Trump was taking the stage. It shows a much different picture.
Several other GOP congressional allies were there e including: Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Kat Cammack (R-FL), and Matt Gaetz (R-FL). House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) didn’t bother showing up, but he sent a video message that was played for the crowd. His address was booed by some in attendance.
Director of programming at RSBNetwork posted the following picture on his twitter, “Largest crowd in Wyoming history.”
“Liz Cheney is about America last,” Trump said speaking about his nemesis on the House Select Committee investigating the events of January 6th.
“There is no RINO in America that has thrown in her lot with the radical left more than Liz Cheney…she has gone crazy!” Trump said to a large crowd.
