Donald Trump Jr. could not attract much of a crowd in an extremely pro-Trump area of Kentucky to rally for Gov. Matt Bevin on Thursday. The eldest Trump son promoted the event on Tuesday to his 3.79 million followers with a link touting the event as “an excellent opportunity to show your support” for Bevin.
But the event turned out to be an embarrassing bust. There were only about 200 people in attendance and the arena has a seating capacity of 7,000. Videos taken of the venue showed hundreds of empty seats and wide-open spaces on the floor of the arena.
Yikes. This is what the Donald Trump Jr.’s & Crooked @MattBevin’s rally in Kentucky looked like today—completely EMPTY!
