President Donald Trump bragged about the attendance at his New Hampshire rally on Thursday night. The problem is that he got caught lying by Fox News.
Thousands of Trump supporters attended the rally, but Trump made it seem like there were way more people than there actually was, even going so far as to claim that he broke the attendance record set by legendary performer Elton John.

But even Fox News showed many empty seats in the arena, something that is not a feature of Elton John concerts, which Twitter users pointed out.

You’ll never be as popular as Elton John, no matter how many of your cult followers you cram in like sardines to your pep rallies.

You exploited a political domestic issue on the international stage by asking Israel to ban two citizens from your own country. The record you set was being the all-time most racist jackass of presidents in modern history.https://t.co/j4P5O0DZX0

This is a lie. The arena was full of empty seats.
Sounds like the sun is going down on you.

Someone forgot to run the Craigslist ad to pay a whole bunch of seat fillers for your cult gathering. pic.twitter.com/xBuuWZWNZO

Some Trump supporters tried to count the crowd outside the building, but that really does not count, especially since there were empty seats in the arena.
And even if Trump did break a record, that doesn’t mean New Hampshire is going to vote for him in 2020. After all, the state disapproves of him by a 26 point margin.
Clearly, the pictures show Trump is lying. And we have Fox News to thank for finally being truthful for once.
