Sharyl Attkisson noticed something about the way the media have been covering Trump’s rally. On one hand, they want to make fun of him because it wasn’t as many people as they anticipated but on the other, if they admit it wasn’t a YUGE RALLY they can’t screech about how he put so many lives AT RISK!
What a conundrum.
She said it far better than we could of course:
For once, some in media explicitly acknowledge Trump rally was large.
But only to say it was dangerous.
And not that large.
Actually, pitifully small.
But still dangerously large.
Goldilocks size. #whenNarrativesCollide

Sharyl nailed it.
Bigger is better.

That’s what he said.
The facts are whatever my preferred narrative needs them to be.

Ding ding ding.
It’s like they’re familiar with the media.

Have to have a sense of humor when trying to navigate competing/converging narratives..

Ain’t THAT the truth?
I am from Tulsa. I can assure you it wasn’t small and there were tons of people outside who didn’t get in. pic.twitter.com/vcaSz0rjNI

And according to Kayleigh McEnany, Trump was quite pleased with the rally.
It was just right.

And THAT’S what makes them craziest of all.
