After Omaha rally, Trump takes off leaving thousands stranded in sub-freezing weather

There are two parts to this story so read the whole thing.

(Part 1) Newsweek reports that Omaha Trump Rally Attendees Stranded, Several Taken to Hospital Suffering Hypothermia.

Backers of President Donald Trump were left stranded overnight, with several taken to hospital for hypothermia after an Omaha campaign rally ended in chaos.

Hundreds were bussed in to the Eppley Airfield site, leaving their cars in parking lots, but were left wandering up to four miles in the cold after coaches failed to pick them up.

“President Trump took off in Air Force One 1 hr 20 minutes ago, but thousands of his supporters remain stranded on a dark road outside the rally,” CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny tweeted at 10:21 p.m. CDT.

President Trump took off in Air Force One 1 hr 20 minutes ago, but thousands of his supporters remain stranded on a dark road outside the rally. “We need at least 30 more buses,” an Omaha police officer just said, shaking his head at the chaotic cluster that is unfolding.

It’s hundreds and hundreds of people who came on buses - forced to park miles away - who were stranded," he wrote.

Thousands turned up to the Make America Great Again rally in Omaha, Nebraska, on Tuesday night.

Parking at the Trump rally is full," Omaha Police Department tweeted just after 6 p.m.

Shuttles will no longer be transporting people to the event. You will not be able to access the rally by foot, Uber, or any other means of transportation. Parking is not allowed in surrounding neighborhoods, roadways or businesses."

By 9 p.m. the event ended but many faced a 3.7-mile walk from TAC Air to the South Economy parking lot at Eppley.

(Part 2) Blaire Erskine on Twitter reports that a Woman stranded at MAGA rally in Omaha says Trump wanted to teach them a lesson.

What lesson? Who knows. She doesn’t know and it’s “nasty of you to ask”.

Perhaps it has something to do with elderly people passed out and unresponsive. Why so many? If you [media] stopped counting there would not be so many.

That woman summarizes the cultish craziness of Trumpism. Trump does not give a shit about his followers, the woman knows it, but will walk hundreds of miles to hear him anyway.
