GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News this morning that she “was not surprised at all” by reports over the weekend that so-called “white lives matter” rallies were sparsely attended. McDaniel chalked up the low attendance numbers to a couple of “contributing factors.”
“Number one,” McDaniel explained, “the rallies were spread out, and we all know it’s far more fun and entertaining to light a cross in a big group. Number two, and I think this is really the big reason hardly anybody showed up, President Trump didn’t attend. Whenever Trump is there, you get massive crowds. When he’s not, well, it’s a crapshoot at best.”
McDaniel suggested that if the people who organized the White Lives Matter rallies want to increase attendance, they may want to consider making a couple of changes.
“First of off, maybe just call them MAGA rallies. I mean, I think most of us think of white power rallies when see MAGA rallies anyway, so why not just embrace who we really are, know what I mean? Second of off, they should just hold one rally and have our Dear President speak at it. I’ve never seen a larger gathering of racist white Americans in my life than when he speaks at a rally.”
McDaniel suggested that the rallies could have much larger attendance numbers if they follow her advice, and pointed to a fairly recent example of a white lives matter rally that was “chock-full of people.”
“Back on January 6th, we saw how many angry, aggrieved, melanin-free people might attend if you give them who they want to see,” McDaniel explained. “So, clearly, when you put a star on the top of the bill, you’re going to sell more tickets. I guess in this case, though, you’d sell more white robes and hoods. You get the idea though.”
