Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says that teenagers had "flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations" in a response to Brad Parscale, Trump's campaign manager.

Brad Parscale had stated the following, that "radical protestors, fueled by a week of apocalyptic media coverage, interfered with @realDonaldTrump supporters at the rally. They even blocked access to the metal detectors, preventing people from entering. Thanks to the 1,000s who made it anyway!"

AOC then responded to him by saying, "actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID Shout out to Zoomers. Y’all make me so proud."

AOC is suggesting that teenagers who use the TikTok app had made reservations or requests for tickets to attend President Donald Trump's rally in Tulsa, OK, but never intended on going. This allegedly beefed up Trump's numbers to make it look like one million wanted tickets to the event, a number that Trump had mentioned himself in the following video:


However, it was reported that the Tulsa rally had a low number of people in attendance. "The rally was held at the BOK Center, which has the capacity to hold more than 19,000 people. Local officials estimated, however, that just under 6,200 people attended the event."

It's possible that AOC's information about teenagers requesting tickets, with no intention of going, could have resulted in the lower than expected attendance. Aljazeera is looking into it.

On the other hand, there were people camped out for a night or two before the rally, so there was definitely some interest in the public on being there.

At least one small group of people were there in Tulsa performing Trump related songs.


TikTok is a social media app where people share videos. People can communicate through the comments. It is criticized because it's supposedly owned by China, but seems like one of the biggest audiences of the app are users from America.
