Shortly after his rally in Manchester, New Hampshire on Thursday evening, President Trump took to Twitter to announce, “Tonight, we broke the all-time attendance record previously held by Elton John at #SNHUArena in Manchester, New Hampshire!”
The announcement by the President was immediately met with slander from the left, many arguing that President Trump was lying about the record.

No one would let it be perceived that he could see nothing, for that would have shown that he was not fit for his office, or was very stupid. No clothes of the Emperor's had ever had such a success as these. “But he has nothing on!” a little child cried out at last.— Lesley Abravanel (@lesleyabravanel) August 16, 2019
This is a lie. The arena was full of empty seats.— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) August 16, 2019
Sounds like the sun is going down on you.
After the liberals on Twitter and the media accused President Trump of lying, Manchester Deputy Fire Marshal Mitchel Cady confirmed that Trump was indeed correct.
While speaking to The Daily Mail Cady asserted that the attendance for the event was “just over 11,500.” He also noted that “the arena staff said Elton John was around 11,300” back in 2004. Cady went on to say that there were at least 8,000 people standing outside of the arena watching President Trump's rally on jumbo screens. He stated, “We weren't counting it but we estimated probably in the area of 8,000 to 9,000 out front.” After the event on Friday, Cady he examined the boundaries of where the outdoor crowd was on Thursday night, saying, “We measured out the space this morning. Based on the calculations we use for crowd load, we came to either 8 or 9 [thousand].”
Cady continued noting that there may have been even more people than he originally calculated: “Had some more snuck in during the period when we’re trying to assess the situation and get the door closed, when we’re trying to get everyone through the mags (walk-through metal detectors), then maybe it’s 11,500-plus.”
Another arena worker noted that although there were people avoiding the “nosebleed seats,” there were also “people cramming themselves into the standing-room space on the arena floor … The Trump people wanted the fire marshal to let more people in, and at some point they say no. But there were tons and tons more outside. It’s not like they couldn't fill the place."
The fake news media on the other hand loves pushing the president's buttons. Before the event on Wednesday, Gail Collins with the New York Times wrote that a "good way to torture Donald Trump,” suggesting, “If we want to really make him crazy, we ought to start a rumor that he can’t draw a crowd.” She added, “Trump can’t bear suggestions that he’s not a crowd megamagnet. Every time he gets on a stage, he seems compelled to claim the audience is of epic proportions. The place is packed! Not to mention the masses waiting outside!”
