OK, we’ve already run one post this week dunking on the newest Democratic candidate for president, Deval Patrick, for drawing what no one could honestly call a “crowd,” or even an intimate gathering. This was at an event in Nevada.

On Wednesday night, not having a debate to get to, Patrick scheduled an event at Morehouse College, but reportedly canceled when he arrived and was informed that he wouldn’t have an audience.
Governor @DevalPatrick was supposed to have an event at Morehouse College tonight. An organizer with the college who planned the event told CNN that Patrick cancelled the event when he arrived and learned that he would not have an audience.

At what point do these people realize it’s never too soon to drop out?

What hubris to think he'd pull focus from the Democratic debate.
— Aejlex (@JeanMigdl) November 21, 2019
Or better yet he would actually have an audience or that anybody actually wants to see him??

I'm feeling a groundswell of support for him and the Starbucks guy. They should team up.

Hopefully he gets the message 😶

I'm sure he will soldier on and get his crowds up to at least double digits. Who does this guy think he is coming in this late?

Huge crowd compared to Bill de Blasio

“What I’m sensing is not some openness to someone new, but an openness to me,” Patrick told me in a phone interview today. He had just landed in Atlanta and was headed to this event https://t.co/cfueI23Rd3

I bet the "rent is too damn high" guy would have got more.

Groundswell of support for the former governor remains solidly…underground.

Nice, we don’t even have to bully this one out like we did Schultz.

He was always destined to be a sad, pathetic centrist footnote in the history of the country. But this definitely cements the comical arrogance of this would-be heir to Obama. Keep dreaming, Deval. No one likes you.
