Former Minnesota Senator Al Franken laid a nasty burn on President Donald Trump for the pitiful turnout at his Tulsa, Oklahoma, rally by doing a bit of research that proves just how pathetic the attendance of 6,200 people on Saturday night truly was.
Franken posted this tweet:
6,200 people at Trump rally in Tulsa. Acts that had bigger crowds at the same venue in 2019:
– Sha Na Na
– The Pips (w/o Gladys Knight)
– John Tesh
– The West Virginia Touring Company of La Traviata

Ouch! Sha Na Na and John Tesh managed to draw larger crowds? Keep in mind they also charged admission. Tickets for the Trump rally were free.
Others then joined the fun, piling on as they laughed at Trump:
And Nickelback! Dude was less popular than freakin’ Nickelback. It doesn’t get more embarrassing than that.

A 2018 preseason hockey game between the Dallas Stars and Florida Panthers drew over 11,000 attendees to that same arena.
Preseason. Hockey. In Oklahoma. Almost double the attendance.

I think a Yanni concert would out sell Trump!

And tickets for these cost money! Trump’s were FREE, if you don’t count the cost of 6 texts and emails begging for money every day! ?

Maybe for his next rally, Trump can have John Tesh be the warm-up act and then get Loverboy to do a rendition of the national anthem. If nothing else, at least the beginning and end of the night would be somewhat entertaining.
