The Donald made an appearance tonight in Phoenix, AZ. Before the event the Republican Presidential hopeful boasted about an expected 9000 attendees. There were enough RSVPs that they had to change the venue to the North Ballroom of the Phoenix convention center.
Once the crowd had gathered, Trump posted a picture on Facebook with the caption, "This is what 15,000 people looks like."
On Twitter Trump claimed the crowd was 20,000
He's sounding like an old fisherman telling tales of his proudest catch, which gets larger every time the story is rehashed. But, regardless, what a crowd! There were so many people he couldn't even count them! No really, he apparently doesn't know how to count.
You see, all the press coverage estimated the crowd at around 4,000 to 5,000.
That's just the liberal media trying to sabotage Donald Trump because they're scared of him, right? Well, not unless the Phoenix Convention Center is part of the liberal media conspiracy, and preemptively lied about the capacity of the North Ballroom. According to documents published on the center's website, that capacity is 4,100 people.
Now, 4,100 people is an impressive number to be sure. But it's not 20,000. Sorry Donald, your fish tales don't match with reality.
