Master projectionist Donald Trump isn’t buying estimates of Elizabeth Warren’s crowd sizes. According to the Warren campaign, she drew a massive 20,000 supporters to a rally in New York on Monday, but Trump believes that number is more inflated than the turgid muskmelon atop his shoulders.
“Certainly, if I went to Manhattan, if I went there — No. 1, she didn’t have 20,000 people and No. 2, I think anybody would get a good crowd there,” he told reporters on Air Force One, according to a pool report. “I think you have a good crowd there if you don’t even go there, just say you’re going and how many people are in the park.”
Oh, Donny. You’re such a sad little boy. You started a dick-measuring contest with a woman, and lost.
The ascendant Warren has seen her crowd sizes grow in cities across the country as enthusiasm builds for her anti-corruption message. Another coup came for her campaign on Monday when she received an endorsement from the Working Families Party, a coalition of labor organizers, activists and other progressive groups based in Brooklyn.
Trump has long been sensitive to the crowd-size estimates for his events. He has been accused of overstating the attendance of his events — a trend that gave rise to the term “alternative facts” — from his inauguration to campaign events.
I really can’t wait for Warren’s inauguration. Maybe she can hire Sean Spicer for one day to announce her attendance — which, unlike some people’s fables, will align with consensus reality. It will be the largest audience to ever … ah, you know the rest.
Is Trump still chafing your arse-cheeks? Then Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its breathlessly awaited sequel Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing are the pick-me-up you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And they’re way, way cheaper than therapy.
