    While this report is undoubtedly true. and Trump is a prime Dummkopf and liar.
    That link is to a true blue news source, and is preaching to the converted.

    The left has no sense of humor nor can they get sarcasm. If Trump said, I ate a mile high apple pie, the media would be out with a tape measure to measure the pie and then say Trump lied. I would take this exaggeration as a sense of humor way of saying this pie was huge.

    Like how the newly-elected female Democrats all 'hate America' and 'hate freedom'? Or how none of them 'clapped for freedom' at the SotU?
    Give me a break.

    Ah, the old "it was a joke" defence, beloved of bullies and sexually inappropriate boses everywhere.

    I'm not on the left, though, so your condescending handwave fails.

    It sounds like Trump was giving a hypothetical since he said: "So we have, let’s say, 35,000 people tonight — and he has 200 people, 300 people, not too good,” Trump whined."

    ....Also stating that "Trump whined" seems like possible bias.

    Who was this person Trump was competing against anyway?

    Nice to see the Usual Suspects acting precisely as predicted, I did expect a few more of them, though. Could it be we're witnessing some of our resident Trumpettes beginning to back away as the first step in their inevitable "well I never supported him!" personal retcon?

    A goal post shift and an attempt to invalidate Trump's own, quoted words with claims of bias. Good, good, keep 'em coming. I only need an appeal to authority and a good old fashioned reductio ad absurdam to get a bingo.

    Here is a more mainstream source, if anything slightly conservative. It too notes the ridiculous Trump lies, though that is not the main focus of the story. When both the people inside at Trump's rally and those outside are counted it appears that he had the larger crowd. But that does not make his lie of two or three hundred at the other rally acceptable:

    Beto vs. Trump: Who had the bigger crowd in El Paso?

    Which is clearly evidenced by the fire departments efforts to make this known in the OP. o_O

    ...Unless this whole thing is satire. Which I think possibly it is.
