There is one thing you can say about the far left whackadoos suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. They are dumber than rocks. The leftists tried to pull the same trick on Staten Island they pulled inn Tulsa by requesting tickets they never intended on using. But it was discovered early and the leftists got burned.
It was decided that the leftists would have to pay a non refundable five dollars in order to reserve tickets. They actually paid the money. The Staten Island GOP collected $15,785 that will towards electing Republicans and it did not affect the number of people showing up for the event. Rocks would not have been fooled that easily.
It began normally with 1,500 requests for tickets but then the numbers started climbing dramatically. It reached 75,000 requests for an event that expected only a couple of thousand people. But they began checking and found someone calling themselves “Felisrae” , who posted a video on Tik Tok, a Chinese platform. How appropriate.
That is when they noticed that many of the people were from out of state. So they added the five dollar charge and the leftists bit it hook, line and sinker. 2,500 people showed up for the event, the number they were expecting and they took in over $15,000 to boot. It was a win/win situation.
In the video, “Felisrae” said that she ordered two tickets but she was sure she was busy that day and told her followers tom do what they would with the information. That’s when the sharp spike in requests began.
She said in the video:
“Do you hate this orange b**** as much as I do? It turns out that Trump is having a rally in Staten Island. So what I did was, I reserved myself two seats. But I’m pretty sure that I have something to do that day. So, do what you want with this information.”
The goal of the video is to cause Trump supporters not be able to attend because the tickets will be gobbled up by people who had no intentions of attending. This troll tactic was employed in June for a Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
That campaign event was not as popular as other Trump events, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) celebrated the lower-than-expected turnout. “Y’all make me so proud,” she said.
“Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted at former Trump campaign senior advisor Brad Parscale.
The final score was Rocks 1 Leftists 0.
