GOP front-runner Donald J. Trump was in Little Rock, Ark. last night for a rally with what he claimed was a “record crowd of 12,000 at Barton Coliseum.” Here’s the photo he tweeted out of the event:

But the actual attendance is in dispute as photos shared online and reports from the scene show many empty seats:

During his speech, Trump brought who he said was the “fire marshal” up on stage to verify his record crowd, but it turns out it wasn’t the fire marshal but the general manger of the state fair:

The Daily Mail attempted to get the general manager/fake fire marshal on the record, be he declined to comment:

Donald Trump boasted that he attracted a record-setting crowd to a livestock arena at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds on Wednesday night, but photos taken while he spoke inside the Barton Coliseum tell a different story.

Minutes before the billionaire Republican presidential candidate arrived on stage – nearly two hours late – the general manager of the state fair told the crowd that they had set a record.

‘In 1974 we had ZZ Top here and we set our all-time record of 11,451,’ Ralph Shoptaw said on stage. ‘I have just been informed that we have broken that record. Over 11,500. So welcome, Mr. Trump to Barton Coliseum.’

Shoptaw didn’t say who informed him of the head-count. He also did not respond to a request for comment.

When Trump entered the arena and looked out over a half-empty venue, he claimed Shoptaw was the fire marshal and reiterated that he had set a new attendance record.

            Trump’s ‘Bama/Hogs gaffe is because he doesn’t know and he doesn’t care. Ignorantly indifferent. Just another snake oil salesman trying to make a buck on the foolishness of the local rubes.

      But don’t attack any Conservatives… that would be unfair. Just any Conservatives who have the gall to try to run against Trump, the man who should never be opposed.

      Sort of like Queen Hillary defenders upset Sanders is (finally) attacking her.
      He wasn’t supposed to do that; she was supposed to win without a contest.

      Same thing here, right?
      Or is it also bad when Trump demeans and degrades those on the right?

        If you would reread what I said, I think it’s shameful when generally like-minded citizens attack each other. I understand people being enthusiastic about their candidate of choice but ripping into one another over positions and things that candidates say seems overly destructive to me. Have a nice evening.

    Like Iowa, Trump should demand an audience recount in Arkansas. Trump really won Iowa and won in Arkansas auditorium count. Just ask Trump!

  • Rhonda Lynn

    What do you expect? He’s a democrat. Following Hillary’s lead on how to lie about ‘support.’

  • Rhonda Lynn

    He’ll start following Hillary’s lead and start holding rallies in closets so it LOOKS like huge crowds.

    • Doc Farmer✔ᶜᵒᵛᶠᵉᶠᵉ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

      Naw, she had to stop doing her rallies in the closet. The servers kept getting knocked over…

  • Dobermite

    I like Trump, but I’m glad ZZ TOP still has the record. Great band and they made some awesome videos back in the day. 🙂

  • HiltonHead_Dude

    Obama used to say every crisis he faced as President was unprecedented in American history. His fans ate it up. And when challenged on the accuracy, his supporters called the critiques racist.

    Trump says every rally he holds is record breaking. When challenged on that his supporters call them liars, establishment, or RINO’s.

    Yeah….i’ve seen this movie before.

  • Richard J Sunkle

    And this genius can’t figure out why he lost Iowa. The presidency is about more than promoting a facade of strength.

    I once read a story (Probably told by him) about a project that was dead in the water for some reason. He rented heavy equipment to aimlessly move dirt around to show investors all the work that was getting done.

    You can’t run a presidential campaign like that. At some point your voters are going to expect consistent wins.

    What? Trump lied (again)?
    Color me shocked that a Liberal candidate would falsify his popularity.

  • manickernel

    Only believe the lies when they fit your view. Funny, taking pictures before/after event will show fewer people. The one section empty during was blocked by media setup. He definitely had over 9000 there.

      That appears to be exactly what you are doing.

      Except they were taken DURING his speech.

  • Anthony

    Well it has begun, Trump is beginning to sound like a politician.

  • Thorhummer

    anyone care that these photos are NOT when Trump was taking the state? Nah, I’ll let you guys have your moment.

    What the hell is he doing in Arkansas ?! Oh I know, Huckster must have planned it!

  • NewWest 123

    This looks like what Hillary and Obama try to pull! Trump is a mole! Don’t be fooled or we lose the country!

  • VanceJ

    With the Donald, every thing has to be bigger even if it’s not.

  • Victoria Richardson

    The cameras at the Donald Trump rally should have shown the whole crowd. 6,000 people is still very good though.

  • Eva_Galley

    Serious, you guys….its a “record” crowd…The AR Dept of Corrections was trying to collect on warrants this way.. Those are Donald’s peeps.

  • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    “Trump brought who he said was the “fire marshal” up on stage to verify
    his record crowd, but it turns out it wasn’t the fire marshal but the
    general manger of the state fair”
    So Trump lied. Again. Repeatedly even.

  • Stuck_in_Ca√→

    I don’t think he would do that. As a business man there is a time to bluff and a time not to bluff. He would know not to bluff when photo evidence is readily available to prove him wrong. That’s why he was admonishing cameramen at his big rallies to show the crowd.

  • David Atherton

    Maybe that’s why hi plane had to make an emergency landing in Nashville last night. His campaign is RUNNING OUT OF GAS!

  • robert
  • kayerob

    His Plane WaS Two Hours Late. Some People Had left But Many Stayed. TheyhHad Closed The Doors Before He Got There. Y’all Are Kind Of Sad. Chris Wallace Couldn’t Get in.

  • T robison

    lol the trolls are out today… o my .. guys when peeps suddenly start spouting.. o my.. he’s a liar.. o my .. that didn’t happen… then on the second breathe give u a rundown of the candidate.. that’s a troll.. go look up info yourself..

  • T robison

    Funny pic.. the party hadn’t even started and the media chose that pic to start their story. Ive looked at the pics when it was full. Do u think any of us listen to u guys anymore? nope

  • commonsense

    https://youtu.be/ge5oaJ0YBEs This vid was taken about 15 minutes before he spoke. It was a lot more crowded.and the floor was packed! His stage was small, so I do believe it probably broke the record. The fire marshal was with the general manager when the announcement was made, too. There is video showing that as well, if you want the truth.
