El Paso Fire Department confirms: Beto’s rally outdrew Trump’s by a 2 to 1 margin

At his border wall rally in El Paso, Texas, Monday night, President Donald Trump proclaimed that 35,000 people were in attendance, though he provided no proof of that claim:

Trump’s son, Don Jr. then parroted that lie on Twitter:

But it turns out that (as usual) both father than son were lying their butts off.

According to the El Paso Fire Department, the crowd estimate on Trump’s rally was 6,500. a A counter rally hosted by Beto O’Rourke drew 10-15,000, making it twice the size of the incumbent president’s:


It’s also worth noting that the vast majority of the people at the Trump rally came into El Paso from out of town and even out of state.

If Monday night is a sign of Trump’s popularity (or lack thereof) in a deep red state like Texas, that should be of special concern to Republicans, because they may not be able to hold the Lone Star State in 2020, especially if O’Rourke happens to be on the presidential ticket.

Twitter couldn’t resist rubbing in just how pathetic Trump’s crowd was:
