After barely 6,000 people turned up to his first rally in months, Donald Trump's campaign has now abandoned online sign-ups for rallys, instead urging people to just turn up instead.
The move comes as, over the weekend, a diabolical (read: f*cking ingenious) scheme by legions of TikTok users and K-pop fans came to fruition when they block-booked tickets for the rally with no intention of turning up. Trump's campaign had been touting huge numbers intended for the rally on the basis of online sign-ups, which ultimately turned out to be fictitious.
Trump held a rally in Arizona yesterday, and had scrapped its online registration / sign-up form over fears that it would be pranked once again by teenagers looking to derail yet another rally for him. The rally that took place yesterday barely attracted over 3,000 people and took place in a small auditorium with no social distancing measures or temperature checks in place.
It's not yet clear whether or not the scheme by K-pops simply crowded out potential supporters arriving to the disastrous rally last weekend, or if his supporters are simply abandoning him altogether. What is known, however, is that a good chunk of the internet is now actively working against him.
K-pop fans, we salute you.
