There were notably some empty seats at President Donald Trump’s Thursday night campaign rally in New Hampshire, and now Twitter users are ridiculing the president over his failure to sell out even relatively small venues.
Twitter user Tony Posnanski got the ball rolling on Friday afternoon when he posted a video of Trump talking with several empty seats behind him.
“Trump keeps saying his rallies are full, but doesn’t look like it,” Posnanski wrote. “Wow, I would hate for #EmptySeatMAGATour to trend so people knew the truth.”

The hashtag soon began trending and was filled with users adding their own jokes about the president’s less-than-capacity crowd sizes. Check out some of the best responses below.

I registered for tickets to this rally, and oops(!), I forgot that I don’t even live in the same state, omg so silly! I missed it! I sure hope others don’t make the same mistake at future rallies. It would be horrible if no one showed up! it would be SO SAD!!!#EmptySeatMAGATour pic.twitter.com/hMRfi4xk3P

Nobody wants to watch re-runs of a boring, racist reality tv show anymore. #EmptySeatMAGATour
