You Won’t Believe What Happened When Obama Started to Speak at a Campaign Rally in Maryland


A funny thing happened at a campaign rally Obama attended yesterday – audience members got up and left while he was speaking! And these weren’t just average Americans fed up with the president, these were hardcore Democrats at an event for Maryland Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown held just outside DC!

Reuters reports:

President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity. …

A steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke, however, and a heckler interrupted his remarks.

Press live tweeting the rally reported it first:

The media covering the event were shocked:

Reporters tweeted photos of audience members leaving:

Democrats were trying to spin it saying that the people who left were from an overflow room where Obama had spoken earlier, except with the pictures and tweets that story doesn’t hold up:

This does not bode well for Obama and Democrats on November 4th – but don’t forget to get out and vote!
