Why, it’s almost as if the Trump campaign wanted to send some kind of message to populist Sen. Bernie Sanders. After all, there’s no logical reason why they would plan a rally in Burlington, Vermont tonight (in the very heart of Bernie country) for 20,000 — in an arena that only holds 1,400 people.
Burlington Police Chief Brandon del Pozo isn’t too happy at the prospect. While not actually calling the campaign irresponsible, he made no bones about being less than thrilled.
According to the chief, the Trump campaign told police to expect about 6,500 people to show up. Del Pozo is worried about what will happen to the ticket holders who are denied entrance, and said the Trump campaign has no plans for dealing with them.
“If Phish was holding a free concert at the Flynn and gave away 20,000 free tickets, we would cancel the event out of public safety concerns,” he told the Burlington Free Press.
The police department has issued a statement warning that attendees will be turned away when the area reaches capacity. In the meantime, stay tuned:
