Donald Trump traveled to Michigan for a rally this past weekend, and while the audience was fairly packed, it became much thinner when Trump got on stage. A video from the event shows Trump supporters filing out of the auditorium within 15 minutes of the beginning of his speech. This isn’t surprising – Trump hasn’t had any new material to present to any audience in well over a year, so the audience didn’t feel a need to stick around. Farron Cousins explains what happened.

Donald Trump traveled to Michigan this past weekend to hold yet another rally where thousands of people showed up to hear him speak. That is obviously one of Donald Trump’s most favorite things on the planet. But this time things were a little bit different because according to a reporter for the Detroit Free Press, about 15 minutes into Donald Trump’s speech, this happened, As you can see from this footage here, people started making their way to the exit. Again, this reporter, uh, uh, by the name of Paul Egan Detroit Free Press, says that about 15 minutes in people just started filing towards the door. And again, as you can see right here, you got a couple people, it looks like one or two, you know, a little boy for some reason. You know, Republicans talk about indoctrination, but they’re the ones who take their kids to Trump rallies.
And then, then you start to see more and more people heading towards the door here. All the red hats leaving, people now filing through like, let’s get the hell out of here. And it’s really interesting to me because it’s not surprising, right? To me, that’s the most interesting part of all of this. Like watching these people leave and of course everybody, everybody else back there just looking bored, like they don’t even wanna be there either, but they’re not ready to leave just yet. But again, the surprising thing is it’s not surprising at all because Donald Trump has just been going through his greatest hits. Yeah, he did drop a couple of new nuggets at this one. He did say, uh, quote, Democrats are cruel and vindictive. Left wing tyrants called them sinister. He said, These are dangerous people who are willing to burn every American institution to the ground.
Uh, he offered some words of praise to Jenny Thomas, which of course got him right back on. His whole 2020 election was stolen nonsense. And I think at that point, that’s when people were like, Oh my God, dude, you’re just playing the hits. You’re playing the classics. Where’s the new material? We didn’t have any, you know, for many years now, I have been comparing Donald Trump to a one hit wonder. Specifically I have said that Donald Trump, when he first burst onto the political scene, even though everybody knew who he was when he became the politician, Donald Trump, it was like the macina. Yeah, it’s a little annoying, but at the same time it’s like, eh, you know, whatever, What’s the harm in it? And then it moved from being annoying to downright obnoxious. And then it got to the point where anytime anybody heard it come on the radio, they would wanna smash their radio with the baseball bat. That’s kind of what it is with Donald Trump. He is the macina weird and knew at first, but now it’s just the most irritating thing you’ve ever heard in your entire life. And that’s why those people are filing out of that auditorium in that clip. They’ve heard the song and they’re not gonna sit there and listen to it for another two hours.
So you can’t blame ’em for not wanting to be there. They were there to see the other people. Marjorie Taylor Green made an appearance, of course, so they did get to see somebody who at least had something different to say than Donald Trump play in the greatest hits of the last five years. But that’s a bad sign for Trump. It’s not like Donald Trump showed up to an event that was filled with all kinds of different people. Left, right, center, all of them. These are his people. And as you can see in that clip, his people are bored with him. They don’t care anymore. They don’t care what he has to say. They’re not even willing. A lot of ’em, as you saw, they’re not even willing to stay in the room while he says these crazy and coherent things anymore. The ones who did stay were looking like they would rather be literally anywhere else on the planet other than stuck in that room with those people listening to that man.
And those are Trump’s people. And if you can’t even get them energized and motivated anymore than buddy, you’ve lost the game.
