SCENARIO 4: The Trump team knew it wasn’t going to have a huge crowd.
This is the most troubling one and the most likely one. But they lied to the President and the press and that all generated enormously negative headlines for the President. The team failed the boss.
In fact, every scenario comes back to that — the President’s own campaign team insisted on bragging about the projected crowd size and they ultimately attracted less than 6,200 attendees into an area that holds three times as many.
Brad Parscale, who has gotten very wealthy off the President’s campaign, went onto social media on Saturday evening to do some damage control. He claimed protestors were blocking entrances and making it difficult for people to get in the arena. This reads like Potemkin creating the facade of a village to fool people.
