2 Hours Before Trump Rally Opens Doors in Bangor, Tickets are Still Available
When I lived in Columbus, Ohio back in 2008, if you wanted to see the presidential candidate Barack Obama during one of his appearances you had to nab tickets within an hour or two of the Obama campaign making them available. Then you had to stand in line for two or three hours, and some people would even show up the night before to make sure they could get a good spot.D
The doors open at noon today for Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Bangor. At 10 AM, the Trump campaign was trying to give away tickets for free and still hadn’t managed to fill its venue. I know this because I picked up a good handful of tickets to the event right then:
I’ll try to take my tickets in to the event and see what I can see inside the rally, although I’ll be leaving before Donald Trump speaks, because:
- I refuse to give the uncouth brute the visible respect of standing and listening to him in person; and
- I’ll be outside, demonstrating against the fear, bigotry and aggression that his campaign channels and promotes.
As I head over to Bangor for Trump’s appearance, these unclaimed tickets reassure me that support for him has become unenthusiastic, even here in conservative northern Maine.
