This seems like a familiar theme.

Try as we might, we can’t seem to keep ourselves from laughing in the newsroom this morning as we read about what the Trump campaign is claiming — AGAIN — attendance at the President’s rally that’s a higher number than can even attend. Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted about attendance as the rally was underway:

Social media users began looking into the claim, which was certainly not out of the ordinary for the Trump campaign or even the President himself, who regularly claims things are the biggest, most, highest, best, loudest, fastest, most superlative they have ever been. That’s when the story began to unravel:


Having tweeted the original claim on Wednesday evening during the rally, Parscale took abuse all night and well into Thursday, when he attempted to clarify his bogus claim with a followup tweet that was just as ridiculous as the first:

Wait. We’re including the AIRPORT? The Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport has one runway and half of its square footage is taken up by a massive FedEx facility. He HAS to be talking about all those people outside and lining the streets, right? A whole extra 12,000 of them, right?

We couldn’t agree more, Jen.
