The media has been very eager to pan the crowd at Trump rallies to film any ruckus by protesters. Otherwise, they haven’t panned the audience at all. Donald Trump has had a difficult time convincing the media present at his rallies to pan the crowd so that the viewers get an idea of the volume and depth of his support.
Not so yesterday in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where the cameras panned the venue to reveal a packed house of enthusiastic, screaming Trump fans, prompting The Donald to exclaim, “Thank you! That’s the first time they’ve ever done that. Thank you! That’s the first time!”
Multiple sources have reported that 30,000 tickets to the rally were issued for a venue that has a capacity of less than 10,000. Looks like The Donald is going to have to stick to football stadiums, while Jeb Bush can’t fill a coffee house.
Also, check out the video below as The American Mirror interviews several women who exuberantly deny the media and leftist narrative that women hate Trump.

Thousands of women — the very people the mainstream media says shouldn’t like Donald Trump — turned out to see the Republican frontrunner at a packed Michigan rally in Grand Rapids Monday night.
Multiple sources tell The American Mirror over 30,000 tickets were distributed for a venue that held less than 10,000 people.
We were on hand and talked to several women — including one sporting a “Hillary for Prison” t-shirt — about why they support Trump.
Beneath the video, below, is a large space of nothing separating it from the remainder of The American Mirror article. I have tried for several hours to edit the space out of this post. Nothing doing! When I try to edit it out the video disappears. I apologize for the faulty formatting.
“I like Donald Trump because I feel like he’s honest with the people,” one woman told us. She thought Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are essentially in the same party.
She said she hasn’t been involved in politics before. “I’m registering to vote because I want to vote for Donald Trump,” she said.
“I think African-Americans are waking up to the fact that liberal policies are not working for us,” another woman said.
Sarah Anderson, communications director for the Michigan Republican Party, told us she hasn’t seen a rally like the one in Grand Rapids.
“This is our 27th visit from a Republican presidential candidate in Michigan since February 2015, and I’ve not seen anything like this yet.”
Another woman said, “I support Donald Trump because of his honesty and his willingness to say what he thinks and not back down after he says it. I support him because I truly believe that he’s a great businessman and I think the country needs a businessman to put the country back on track.”
She was asked, “the mainstream media tells us that women aren’t supposed to like Donald Trump. What do you say to that?”
“I love Donald Trump,” she responded. “I think women are far underrated if we should be stupid enough to vote for a woman because she’s a woman.”
“The American dream is dead, but I’m going to make it bigger and better and stronger,” Trump said during the rally, according to the Detroit Free Press. “This isn’t the real silent majority. It’s a very loud, very aggressive, noisy majority.”
