Last Saturday, June 20, Donald Trump held one of his hate rallies in Tulsa, OK. He had supposedly booked over a million people, but teens and K-Pop fans reserved seats in the arena without showing up.
1. The Empty Arena was being tweeted everywhere.
Trump was trying to hype the big crowds before the rally. His campaign manager tweeted this.

There will be precautions for the heat and bottled water as well.

2. Even John Oliver Mocked Trump.
On his show Last Week Tonight, John Oliver managed to mock Trump while talking about the Coronavirus outbreak in Prisons.
“There’s absolutely no one in the room with me right now, although interestingly, that’s still somehow only slightly fewer people than were at President Trump’s Oklahoma rally last night, which was half empty despite his campaign claiming that a million people had requested tickets,” Oliver explained, “and even building an outdoor stage so he would be able to do a second speech to the thousands that couldn’t get in. That speech turned out to be very much unnecessary.”
3. Someone tweeted out the real stats of the Trump administration.
