Wow. It looks like the big Trump rally in Tulsa is a big bust. First of all, hardly anyone showed up:


The outside overflow event was canceled completely, and the stage was torn down hours before the start of the main indoor rally:

But worst of all, it sounds like Trump’s schtick is boring. Apparently he can’t even get much applause when he attacks Joe Biden. Twitter, as always, has up-to-the-minute coverage:

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
