These really are good times when you can get paid for watching a politician make an ass out of himself.
We're talking $15 an hour to wear a red hat and clap every time Trump moves his lips.
Fun Fact: Congress just passed a law raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Of course, getting it through the senate is another question with Moscow Mitch in charge.
Trump's propaganda department ran local ads on Craigslist days before his recent New Hampshire rally, hoping to fill the seats in the small arena (12,000 is relatively small as far as arenas go).
Long story made short; the arena was not filled to the delight of Democrats who showed numerous videos with empty seats.
Pretty pathetic eh? We're not done yet showing how desperate Donny is to avoid empty seats.
Workers at a Pennsylvania petrochemical plant (Shell) where Trump was speaking last Tuesday had a choice of getting paid for attending (and supporting Trump), or take the day off with no pay.
The workers who didn't attend lost up to $700 that day. It was pure extortion, right down to telling paid protestors they were not allowed to show any signs of protest.
Hashtag protest - #BoycottShell
Trump's energy talk/rally isn't the first time Trump's minions have had to pay people to attend his rally/rants. It's a pattern that developed when he was running for president, and a tactic still dutifully used by his minions.
It's all about creating an alternate reality. Con man Don learned that years ago on his reality show The Apprentice.
I found a silver lining to these pathetic attempts to pack venues; look at them as an economic stimulus!
Meanwhile, Congress is doing it's best to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 to catch up to what Trump's campaign is paying it's audiences.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
