Journalist Shares Photos Of Empty Seats After Trump Said His Rally 'Broke All Records'

By Mark Pygas

President Donald Trump held a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday evening, a place he described as “just rotting... a war zone” during his presidential campaign. He seemed to change his mind last night, describing the city as a “wonderful, beautiful place.” The event, which marked his 100th day in office, took place at the same time as the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, an event which presidents usually attend. Back in February though, Trump declined his invitation via Twitter.  

As we've all come to know, President Trump is obsessed with ratings, consistently arguing that his Inauguration attracted the largest audience in history, despite figures to the contrary. And last night was no different, during his speech, Trump claimed that the rally broke the “all-time” record for the arena that seats 7,000. 

But Jonathan Tamari, a Washington correspondent for the Philly Inquirer, seems to think otherwise. After the claim, Tamari shared several photos of empty rows.
