Well, as usual, SOMEONE made a significant mistake concerning Donald Trump. Do you remember Trump’s rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, only a few weeks ago, friends and readers? The one where Donald Trump’s brain sang love songs in the wind to Hannibal Lecter, cussed like a traitor, and made up new and imaginative words?

Oh… That one. Well — if you remember it, you also remember the bragging about the MAGA crowd being at least 80,000 people. From the very beginning, Palmer Report harbored doubts about the claim of 80,000 people at Trump’s rally in Wildwood, New Jersey. And now, it seems our skepticism was well-founded.

Wildwood, New Jersey officials have gone and RETRACTED the claim of 80,000 people. It turns out that was not accurate. Are we surprised? Officials explained that the “80,000 to 100,000 people” claim was the number of people who LIVE in the community—not the number at Trump’s stale rally.

Undoubtedly, not everyone in the town attended the rally. Wildwood is a beach town and offers far more than one petty speech from one senile traitor. Others, you see, (Like Us) had estimated the number of people to be far less.

My feelings on the matter are that any media organization that ran with Trump’s narrative of huge crowds needs to print a retraction. As Wildwood, New Jersey is now acknowledging, it was, in fact, fake news.

Whenever the Trump campaign makes a claim, it’s crucial to exercise our critical thinking. This is because Trump and his associates have a track record of falsehoods, and we have ample evidence of that. So, how many people attended the madman’s rally? I do not have an exact count, but one thing we know. It wasn’t anywhere close to 80,000.
