8 Million People on Fox News Watched the Trump Tulsa Rally Fiasco of Just 6,200 in the Stands and Rows of Empty Blue Seats


The ratings are in for Donald Trump’s fiasco of a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

On Fox News, 8 million people tuned in between 9 and 10 pm Eastern to see the debacle. There were only 6,200 people in the Tulsa BOK Arena. Cameras should huge seas of empty seats, all painted Democrat blue.

From 8 to 9pm, the number was lower: 7,100,000. In the 10pm hour, when Trump was speaking but the disaster was clearly obvious, the audience dropped to 4.6 million.

CNN and MSNBC skipped most of the rally, and averaged around 2 million viewers.

Most of the Fox News viewers– 6 million– were over the age of 50, by the way. Fewer than 1 million were in they key demo of 18 to 49.
