Regent University Library Plaza, Virginia Beach, VA. October 22, 2016. Can you see me? 😀
This is about 10k people who showed up with 3 days notice. Here’s how our local media covered it…
Alas, a real article appears, doesn’t show the crowd.
Enough about the crooked media and why, if I can’t be there, I watch the Right Side Broadcast live streams. This one starts about an hour before the event, they love the crowds!
I’ve watched Donald’s stump speech about a 100 times, but never physically with thousands of like minds in a street party atmosphere. It’s hard to describe that kind of excitement!
I arrived about two hours before the event’s start, thousands were already there to grab those coveted first few rows in front of the podium. They arrived about 9-10 a.m. to get in line for the noon time gate opening. At the gate was about a dozen airport type screener machines and bag checkers. Some people got the wand too. When I got there about 1pm for the 3pm kick off, there were long lines in front of each screener and about 3 secret service (police division) at each station. Probably why you didn’t see 2 mile long lines, it ran very smoothly and quickly !
Donald didn’t arrive until 4:22pm to deliver his speech, but nobody noticed because we were just so happy to be there. The event did kick off on time with a steady stream of rebel rousing speakers of local politicians, pastors and military veterans making their case for Trump. Most of them gave a shout out to the crowd with Welcome Deplorables to big cheers!! And just before Trump’s stump, surprise speaker Rudy Guiliani spoke, what a treat ! He was welcomed with the crowd chanting Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! like in the movie 🙂
Speaking of Deplorable, I wore my Je Suis Deplorable shirt that I bought from a friend’s Zazzle Shop, I really thought I was a hot shot for having an original shirt among the Trump and Minion cartoon Deplorables. However, didn’t think this through, being on Pat Robertson’s campus and not a rich population of french speaking people, some people approached me with concern my shirt read Jesus is Deplorable? Yikes, after the 3 person asked, back on with my jacket! One person loved it, her mom is French 🙂
Sorry this is so long, but in the next couple of weeks if you have the chance to attend a Trump Rally, I highly recommend the experience. His supporters are the happiest, most enthusiastic people in the worrrrrld, and they want to Make America Great Again.
