Democrats planned to sabotage the Trump rally in Burlington, Vermont on Thursday. Democrats planned to take all the tickets to the rally and leave the seats empty at 1,400 seat arena.
After being tipped off the Trump campaign released an additional 20,000 tickets. Liberals plan to disrupt the event on Thursday – like good little leftists.
The Daily Mail reported:
Donald Trump’s campaign has handed out nearly 20,000 tickets to an event Thursday night in a theater with just 1,411 seats.
It’s not a counting error, but the latest salvo in the war liberal protesters have waged against the Republican presidential front-runner – this one lobbed in the city where progressive icon Bernie Sanders was once the mayor.
Reports have swirled all week in Burlington, Vermont that liberal saboteurs have been requesting tickets by the bucketful using phony email addresses, in the hope that ticketing would stop and a large portion of the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts would be embarrassingly empty.
The Trump campaign appears to have dramatically overcompensated: Police report that at least 6,500 tickets have been issued to people who appear to have genuine email addresses and say they plan to attend.
Politico reported that Trump aides routinely issue extra tickets to compensate for no-shows, but the scale of their response for Thursday night’s rally is far out of the ordinary.
Trump tweeted on Wednesday that ‘police say first come, first serve. Arrive early!’
Sub-freezing temperatures, combined with loud, practiced protesters and a crush of pro-Trump Republicans could result in a cold mess on the shores of Lake Champlain.
Burlington’s police force issued a stern warning last week to anti-Trump activists after the event was announced last Friday: ‘We reserve the prerogative to enforce the law in cases where expression or free movement throughout the city is unreasonably stifled through intimidation, force, obstruction, destruction of property, etc., or any other unlawful act.’
The Trump rally itself could be disrupted repeatedly on Thursday, as some of his events have been in recent weeks.
