President Trump’s return to the campaign trail in Oaklahoma on Saturday, finding a smaller-than-advertised crowd at his Tulsa Rally, which TikTok, KPop, and Zoomers took credit for.
Campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said about an hour before Trump was set to take the stage at the 19,000-seat BOK Center:
“Sadly, protesters interfered with supporters, even blocking access to metal detectors, which prevented people from entering the rally,”
But social media was abuzz Saturday night with claims that President Trump opponents, many of them teenagers, K-Pop fans, and Zoomers guaranteed that hundreds, even thousands of seats for the Tulsa rally remained empty — by bulk “reserving” tickets they had no intention of using.
AOC’s Simpleminded Shout Out To Trump Rally Disrupters
After President Trump blamed protests and media-stoked fears of the coronavirus for the large swaths of empty seats.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out some of her simpleminded socialist squad stupidity at Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager.:
“Actually, you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID,”
“Shout out to Zoomers,” she said, calling some of the ticket-hoarders “KPop stans.”

Trump Triggered Twittering Twits Tweeting
A loosely-organized campaign on TikTok included Trump opponents of all ages — including one calling herself “#TikTokGrandma.”
“Go reserve tickets now and leave him standing there alone on the stage, what do you say?” she urged.
She advised that the Trump campaign was allowing reservations for two free tickets per cell phone number.
“When you register you have to give them your cell phone number,” she said in a video.
“They send you a code, you put the code in, and your tickets are reserved for you.”
Afraid you’ll get deluged with annoying Trump campaign texts? Not to worry, she advised.
“Once you text “stop” they have to stop texting you, that’s the law” she said.
Political strategist and avowed Trump opponent Steve Schmidt claimed his 16-year-old daughter and her pals together purchased “hundreds of tickets.”
This is what happened tonight. I’m dead serious when I say this. The teens of America have struck a savage blow against @realDonaldTrump. All across America teens ordered tickets to this event. The fools on the campaign bragged about a million tickets. lol. @ProjectLincoln.
