Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Jonathan Swan: There Will Be Recriminations For Trump Rally”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Axios White House reporter Jonathan Swan said “there will be recriminations” for the dramatically underwhelming rally President Donald Trump held in Tulsa, Oklahoma Saturday night.

Earlier in the week, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted that 1 million people requested tickets for the controversial rally, held in an indoor arena as coronavirus cases continue to rise in the United States.

While supporters camped out for days before the rally, the end result was underwhelming. The 19,000-seat BOK Center was only half-full. An outdoor “overflow” stage that Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were scheduled to speak at was taken down after their speeches were cancelled because there weren’t enough people in attendance.

Swan — who interviewed the president at the White House on Friday — wrote on Twitter, “I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody gets fired over this.”

In an appearance on MSNBC, Swan elaborated: “This rally was not the rally they had planned, and it’s not the one [Trump] expected.”
