CNN Mocked Donald Trump’s Rally Numbers… Until This Happened!

Prior to the beginning of Donald Trump’s big rally in Mobile, Alabama, CNN was mocking Trump for only having about 12,000-15,000 people in the stands of Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Ha – they had it wrong.

They did point out there were more people outside still in line to get in but they ignored the large number of people who were on the field and not in the stands.

And ended up backpedaling:

And, then reported the actual numbers:

CNN Donald Trump brought 30,000 supporters from deep red Alabama to a Friday night pep rally in a football stadium, the latest sign that the Republican front-runner has broad, nationwide strength.

Over an hour of often rambling remarks, the New York businessman reveled in the crowd size while he offered them his usual menu of patriotic pledges and carefree criticism of the media, his opponents and political correctness that he said his crowd similarly despised.

“We’ve gotten an amazing reception,” Trump said as he began his remarks, turning his back to the podium at the Ladd-Peebles Stadium and pointing to the rafters behind him. “Has this been crazy? Man!”


Twitter joined in and mocked CNN for their consistently bad reporting. Check out these entries:

I was covering the Defending the Dream Summit in Columbus, Ohio, this past Friday when I found out Trump was rallying Americans in Alabama. I was shocked that on a Friday night he got these numbers and it was raining. Anytime when the media eats crow, it’s a good day!

How many of you love it when the mainstream media looks stupid when they try to destroy the truth narrative and it comes back to bite them in the end. Share your thoughts below in the comment section.
