Cause you had a bad day...Daniel Powter, Bad Day
Trump’s Tulsa rally was not a winner. It simply was a failure, creating optics that make his campaign look weak. Moreover, the photograph (above) of Trump leaving Marine One is one of those rare moments you see Donald Trump looking completely defeated.
The photograph captures a very bad moment in time and
for the moment, he is defeated.
"‘It's politics 101: You under-promise and overdeliver,’ a Trump ally said, conceding the missteps the Trump 2020 team took in the lead-up to the event by saying nearly 1 million people had responded to requests for admission.“ (NBC)
Trump has, in the past, never experienced the level of failure he experienced in Tulsa. In the past, Trump built expectations but he did not over promise creating expectations he could not deliver. Each rally he has successfully conducted were full houses forcing overflowing crowds to watch his rally outside of the venue.
His campaign rallies were a mark of significant success. The recent Tulsa rally, however, may be the mark of a turning point in his presidency and his campaign for another term.
There is a lot of speculation on what happened ranging from Tik Tok users making reservations to cause Trump to oversell attendance to Trump being the victim of his own failures in managing a country through a pandemic. No matter what the reason, there is one thing that can be said about the Trump rally:
“This was a major failure” as one Trump advisor said. Moreover, it was a major failure at the wrong time. Unfortunately for Trump, it may not be fixable.
Donald Trump’s reality show presidency is at a turning point. It looks as though it is turning toward disaster.
