No Thrill: Former President Obama crawled out from his perch in Washington, D.C., to hit the campaign trail on the opposite coast last week, stumping for Democrats ahead of November’s midterm elections.
But the former commander-in-chief may not have received quite the attention he had hoped for.
As reported by the George Soros-funded Think Progress, one event Obama attended drew just 750 people.
And this was in far-Left California.
Think Progress reported:
Former President Obama made his first campaign stop of the midterm elections in Orange County, California Saturday to stump for seven Democratic House candidates running in districts currently held by Republicans but that Hillary Clinton won in 2016.
About 750 people attended the event at Anaheim Convention Center, where Obama delivered a short speech centered on unity and the “politics of hope.” And, after a story about getting kicked out of Disneyland when he was caught smoking in the Magic Kingdom after a concert as a teenager, Obama issued an impassioned critique of Trump and the state of American democracy and encouraged the crowd to back the candidates he came to support[…]
The poor attendance did not go unnoticed:
Obama campaign rally in leftist California had a grand attendance of: 750 PEOPLE. @realDonaldTrump regularly fills massive arenas. MT got 12,000! Indiana got 11,000! West Virginia got 13,600! Obama could only get 750. Muh Blue Wave. #MAGAhttps://t.co/8mNNp0lv20

Meanwhile, POTUS Donald Trump continues to draw massive crowds to his rallies, filling up venue after venue in a matter of hours, with many waiting in line for hours just to get in.
