Don Jr. and his father President Trump LOVE to brag about how big their crowds are out on the campaign trail.
It seems doubtful we’re going to see a tweet about the gigantic group that showed up for Don Jr.’s recent event with Governor Matt Bevin of Kentucky, however.
Organizers have asked the audience to move out of the seats and closer to the stage ahead of Trump Jr/ Gov. Bevin event in Pikeville.
I think it's fair to say this is sparsely attended. pic.twitter.com/JghTohDROS

The tiny group of people was even more embarrassing on video.
Almost 15,000 views so far of @American_Bridge's video from the Crooked @MattBevin & @DonaldJTrumpJr rally that no one went to. In a county Trump won by 80% in 2016…Either Don Jr. isn't a draw, or people really hate America's most unpopular Gov. #kygov pic.twitter.com/oIFM81lbr4

Those present report about 200 people—including security and support personnel—attended the rally at the Appalachian Wireless Arena, which can hold roughly 7,000 people at full capacity.
Don Jr. might need to call Sean Spicer in for some damage control on crowd size here. https://t.co/dcdqcBvFjm

.@GovMattBevin @MattBevin is this the saddest, most pathetic, “rally” in gubernatorial history? The fact that @DonaldJTrumpJr is there makes it that much more enjoyable. Quite the draw there, Jr! 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 https://t.co/yFfeg6SRBn

This rally takes place only a few weeks after Don Jr. mocked Democratic Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke for the “low” attendance at a rally in Texas.
Embarrassingly, only about 7,000 came out to see Beto, or 6,800 more than Donald Jr. drew.
I could fit this Don Jr rally in my house and not violate fire code

Twitter didn’t hold back on Donald Jr. for his tiny little crowd.

🤣 they could have fit this rally in a Hardee's. Not a lot of love for Bevin and Don Jr. in Pikeville? https://t.co/YDD5luJPft

This is the paltry crowd Don Jr. was able to muster in rural East Kentucky tonight. Sad!

It’s gonna be lit when Don Jr claims there were thousands of people lined up outside for this event https://t.co/nLjbNd0bpf

Even Tim Ryan makes Don Jr. look bad.
Tim Ryan…who can't muster up a single percentage point in 2020 polls…got wayyyyy more folks to come out than Don Jr. pic.twitter.com/qWVLSeh0jf

No need to be embarrassed, Don, rallies like this run in the family.
Don Jr. spoke at a tiny rally in Kentucky last night, which his Dad will refer to as "huge." Girlfriend Kimberly comforted Don Jr. by saying, "Both people had a really good time" and Ivanka suggested, "Next time be like Dad and pay people to show up, and start a rumor about pie" pic.twitter.com/ELDAHXIFpM

dozens of dozens! The most dozens!

Get more folks showing up at Popeyes for a chicken sandwich

If he wants to get the word out, Don will just have to spew his hate on Twitter like everyone else.
What a waste of all his lovely racism and bigotry! How can he spread the hate when folks don’t show up?

That’s the most diverse crowd of middle-aged white people I’ve ever seen.

Sorry, Don, maybe more people will come to watch you talk next time.
