    Was surprised to see the huge crowds for Trump's Florida rally.

    Kind of reminds me of Cleveland's parade for the Cavaliers

    Just as scary as the man himself is the amount of people who agree with what he stands for.

    Yah well even scarier is someone who photoshops what that "amount of people" is, no?

    LOL seriously Breitbart are millipedes even if they do crack me up sometimes.

    Is it a sign of their bias, or is it a sign of the laziness that has crept into journalism where news outlets just report whatever is on Twitter without checking it first?

    Classic.

    I am noticing a lot of shooting form the hip, and making stuff up and then later "apologizing". It is a tactic, because the damage/benefit is already done.

    agree. there's also a lot of just plain lying about something and nervous laughter knowing full well that while some will absolutely see it and call it out, there's still a group that will see it and not care or just plain not see it.

    laziness IMO. but I don't follow that web site so perhaps that's their M.O.

    Breitbart spoofing on the front page?
    More like hoping we're lazy. Didn't catch @rdowns sleeping on that one.

    You don't get it. The crowd that celebrated the NBA champions waited a whole month for Trump. They were incredibly orderly, as the two pictures - a month apart - clearly show.

    And you can clearly see quite a bit of orange flags and clothing in the crowd.

    Obviously. Orange for Cleveland --> Orange for Breibart Logo --> Orange for Trump's skin.
    It all makes sense.

    LMFAO!

    I totally missed this thread before, but living in Ohio as I do, I didn't even have to scroll down to the second picture to recognize Cleveland, and that the photo was from the Cavs' victory parade.

    Frankly, the picture was so memorable to me because I wondered how that many people could be standing on the roof of a parking garage without it freaking collapsing.

    Was a fun parade to watch, though!

    Hillary can't pay people enough to show up to her rallies.

    And yet she is drawing crowds too. Hmm. Funny how your talking points fail.

    Although really, as Bernie Sanders could tell you, it's not the size of your rallies, it's the size of your votes on Election Day that matters. And she will have millions upon millions voting for her in November.

    it doesn't matter how many fanatics show up for a rally. Only the votes matter.

    Looks more like a school auditorium than an arena like Trump is used to.

    There are a lot of schools in PA and they're going to all of them on the bus tour. Retail politics: it just works.
