Thousands were turned away from a Trump Rally today in Columbus Ohio as it appears the political arm of the DNC, via the Democrat Mayor Andrew Ginther, and Democrat Fire Marshal Kevin O’Conner, blocked attendance to the Trump event.
Moments before going on stage to a restricted audience of 1,000, Donald Trump informed the media of the political manipulation:
Not Allowed In:
Research indicates Trump is entirely correct. Against the backdrop of lackluster visible support for Hillary Clinton last weekend in Ohio, it appears there are political efforts underway to avoid the stark contrast of her opponent Donald Trump Rallying with thousands.
The venue is the Greater Columbus Convention Center – “Exhibit Hall E”. And has a banquet seating capacity (tables and chairs) of 4,140. – SEE PDF – With auditorium or stadium seating the capacity easily exceeds 6,000.
According to the Columbus Dispatch the Fire Marshal, a Democrat named Kevin O’Conner, made the arbitrary decision to turn away thousands of Trump Supporters and not allow them to enter the venue. It was the fire marshal who set the arbitrary attendance limit at 1,000.
John Page, general manager of the Greater Columbus Convention Center, said that because of construction and another event moving out, the capacity for Trump’s event in Exhibit Hall E was set at 1,000 by the fire marshal. (read more)
As noted by several media attendees covering the event, there was no visible construction whatsoever, and there was ample room for the supporters who were turned away at the door.
Last weekend in Pennsylvania and Ohio the rallies of candate Hillary Clinton were sparsely attended reflecting a poor optic for a campaign that lacks enthusiasm.
And it was just yesterday when the Democrat Columbus Ohio Mayor, Andrew Ginther held a rally for Hillary Clinton:
–LINK– Yes, it would appear the political entities in/around the venues being used by Donald Trump are working earnestly to avoid the contrasting optics.
It is challenging for the media to present manipulated, agenda-driven, political polling – when the contrasting optics cut against their intended narrative. All efforts must be made by the regional affiliates of the Democrat party to give the illusion of Clinton-Kaine viability.
Additionally, anyone who has ever done these events will tell you: you rarely, if ever, see the fire marshal get involved. These capacity issues are driven by the venue owners and managers, in this instance the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
