Sanders Fans Plot Sabotage of Trump Event
Donald Trump is set to host a rally in Vermont on Thursday night.
However, there may be a few empty seats. Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters are looking to sabotage the event by buying tickets to the event with no intention of attending.
“No, I have not converted to a racist bigot,” one Sanders supporter wrote. “I am just assuring that there are going to be two empty seats.”
The Hill reports:
The supporter then directed hundreds of other Facebook users to an Eventbrite URL to reserve tickets.
“Please share and spread the word so Trump gets the message that here in Vermont, we only #feel the bern.”
Burlington police officials have raised concerns of overcrowding at the rally because Trump’s campaign has offered up 20,000 free tickets to the event, according to The Burlington Free Press. But officials say the theater where the event will be held has a 1,400-person capacity.
Trump took to Twitter to alert supporters that they should get there early since admittance is first come, first served.
