For a third time, Donald Trump left people who attended his rally stranded. Now, why would he do that? Consider, he is already exposing them to the deadly coronavirus at his super-spreader events. They are simply props in the drama called “I Wanna Be President.” And look at what Trump does to those even closest to them. He keeps them by his side until he no longer needs them. Then, he tosses them under the bus. In this case, without the bus.
Sunday night at Trump’s Georgia rally, the Trump campaign bused in 30,000 of his followers to an airport tarmac where he could just have the presidential plane pull in. Then, he hops off the plane onto the stage, does a little dance, sucks in their loving him, gets his photo op, then departs.
The attendees parked their cars in parking lots and boarded buses to take them to the Richard B. Russell Regional Airport in Rome, Georgia. After Trump’s rally, they looked around, but nary a bus was in sight.
The problem started around 10:30 p.m. EST. People rushed out and lined the road. NBC News reporter Julie Tsirkin tweeted just before 1 a.m. EST, according to The Newsweek magazine:
‘Hours after the president departed for Florida, this was the scene in Georgia as people were left for hours waiting for buses to take them to their cars.’

A chaotic scene where hundreds lined the road a mile up from where President Trump held his rally in Rome, GA — attempting to exit the event. Some people were sitting and laying on the ground. It’s 46 degrees and windy in the area tonight. Some of the folks left stranded were older and disabled. Multiple people tried to hitch rides from strangers amid the pandemic.’
The reporter continued:
The single, narrow road to get in and out of the rally site was shared by pedestrians, cars, buses and emergency vehicles.’
Freelance journalist Michael Tracey, described the debacle via tweet as a “logistical s**tshow:”
‘I came to tonight’s Trump rally in Rome, GA over four hours early and only barely made it in because the lines were so long. There were people melting down left and right due to the logistical s**thow of leaving the event. Screaming matches between people over who gets to board returning buses, etc. I heard variations of ‘this is the biggest nightmare…’ shouted in frustration several times.’
Jackson Doegg was doing a live broadcast feed and said:
‘Just left Rome. Very nice crowd. However standing for six hours is kind of rough. Don’t forget the four mile walk there and back. But it was worth it.;
Another attendee tweeted:
‘The folks in charge of transportation were incompetent, gave no direction on the buses, had to walk 3 miles back to the mall. Worth it though, 4 MORE YEARS!’
Standing before the clamoring crowd of thousands, the business reality show host turned White House reality show host told them:
‘They said ‘Sir you don’t have to come to Georgia’. We have it made. They said this morning, ‘honestly, you can skip Georgia. In two days we will win this state, again… I shouldn’t even have to be here, they say I have it made, Wait until you see what’s going to happen with the great red wave.’
Over 93 million Americans have voted early both in-person and by mail. That is 40 percent of all eligible voters.
