Andy's Angles: Trump
Monday, I was covering the set up of that night's Donald Trump rally at the arena in Wilkes-Barre Township. I walked out onto the floor of the empty arena. The podium is in the lower middle, just off to the left. The media corral is off to the right. A Trump video was looping on the scoreboard screen above.
I looked up at row after row of empty blue seats. Remember, Luzerne County is a Democratic strong hold. The arena was charging $ 10 for parking. I thought to myself that Trump would never fill this place. I was very wrong. he could have filled it-- twice.
TV technicians were dropping cable everywhere. Speakers and lights were tested. Political operatives were making sure everything was perfect. It really was something to see, and I'm thrilled I was there for a look.
This photo is already penciled in as one of this year's Top Ten.
