Trump thinks he draws bigger crowds than Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen, lol

Clearly, Donald Trump has never seen a Beyoncé crowd go apeshit. 

If he had ever witnessed the might of the BeyHive in full effect, he would definitely not have made the comments about crowd sizes that he did on Thursday night at a rally. 

While speaking to his supporters in Pennsylvania, Trump said that Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Bruce Springsteen all “were drawing crowds smaller than my crowds.” 

Lol, no.

The New York Times examined this claim, along with more than a dozen other inaccurate statements he made at the rally. In 2016 Trump said that up to 49,000 people attended his biggest rallies (which supporters could attend for free). Compare that with the more than 57,000 people who paid to attended Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Berlin stop on the On The Run II Tour this summer. And then there’s Bruce Springsteen, who back in May 2016 sold out two shows in Dublin that both had an average of 80,000 people.

This isn’t the first time Trump has made claims like this. Back in 2016 during his campaign, Trump repeated the same sentiment to a crowd. “Beyoncé and Jay Z, I like them, I like them. And you know what they do? I get bigger crowds than they do. It’s true. I get far bigger crowds,” he said according to Noisey. The claim was debunked by Politifact. Thursday seems to be the first time he roped The Boss into this mess.

That being said, please continue to stay as far away from Beyoncé concerts (and Jay-Z and Springsteen shows) as you can Mr. President.
