Election: Trump supporters left stranded AGAIN after Georgia rally

Hordes of Donald Trump supporters were left out in the cold waiting for buses yet again after the president’s rally in Georgia, marking the third time MAGA fans have been stranded after similar debacles in Nebraska and Pennsylvania.

After Trump spoke before 30,000 supporters at a rally at Richard B. Russell Regional Airport in Rome on Sunday night, long lines of his fans were left waiting in the dark and cold for 90 minutes or more for shuttle buses to take them back to their cars in distant parking lots.

Hours after the President left the venue aboard Air Force One, journalists tweeted photos of extensive lines of fatigued fans waiting in the road.

Many of those waiting were disabled and elderly people, several sitting and laying down on the ground as they were stranded in windy and chilly 46F degree weather.

It appears that none of the attendees were hospitalized after waiting in the cold after the rally ended at 10.30pm. After Trump’s Omaha rally last week seven people were hospitalized after being stranded for hours in frigid temperatures.

NBC News reporter Julie Tsirkin shot video of people waiting bundled in coats and hats saying: ‘Some of the folks left stranded were older and disabled. Multiple people tried to hitch rides from strangers amid the pandemic.’

‘The single, narrow road to get in and out of the rally site was shared by pedestrians, cars, buses and emergency vehicles,’ she added.

‘Screaming matches between people over who gets to board returning buses, etc. I heard variations of “this is the biggest nightmare…” shouted in frustration several times,’ he said.

Some attendees shared on social media how they had to walk for four miles to attend and leave the event.

‘Just left Rome. Very nice crowd. However standing for six hours is kind of rough. Don’t forget the four mile walk there and back. But it was worth it,’ Jackson Doegg wrote over a live broadcast feed of the event as per Newsweek.

‘The folks in charge of transportation were incompetent, gave no direction on the buses, had to walk 3 miles back to the mall. Worth it though, 4 MORE YEARS!’ another fan said. 

DailyMail.com has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment on the issue.
