MASSIVE Crowd Lines Up for Trump’s El Paso Speech, Beto’s Counter-Rally Draws Only 65 (VIDEO)

President Trump made his way to El Paso, Texas on Monday night to give a speech on the border wall.

Failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke decided to hold a counter-rally, but from the looks of it, things aren’t going his way.

Trump said 75,000 signed up to attend his event:

Here’s a video of the crowd lining up:

How maybe people showed up to hear Beto speak?

Well, you can probably count every single person

Jacob Wohl counts 65 for Beto and 22,000 for Trump…

POLL: Should Hillary Be In Jail?

While Trump headlines an arena, O’Rourke booked a little league field…

Something to keep in mind, too, is that Beto represented Texas in Congress.

At one point, Beto was in a couple of rock bands.

One was called was “Fragile Gang.” The other, “The Sheeps.”

No joke.

“Our persona was that we were a very famous band from New Zealand and we didn’t want people to know our true identities—that’s why we wore masks,” Ailbhe Cormack, the band’s bassist, tells Mother Jones. “I think people followed along with the mystery of it, but they knew who we were.”

During a concert, O’Rourke appeared on stage in a sheep mask and a onesie. There’s proof.

The Sheeps had a short run. The band played three shows around El Paso between 2003 and 2004, “just for a lark,” according to Cormack. The group never toured. At its final show, in 2004, at a local club called the T-Lounge, band members wore brown paper bags over their heads—because some members had lost their sheep masks.

The costumes apparently varied.

O’ Rourke, who said he won’t but probably will run for president in 2020, thinks America needs to start over with new governing documents.

Throughout the two-hour interview — which was often interrupted by bystanders urging him to run for president — O’Rourke boomeranged between a bright-eyed hope that the United States will soon dramatically change its approach to a whole host of issues and a dismal suspicion that the country is now incapable of implementing sweeping change.

Beto: “I’m hesitant to answer it because I really feel like it deserves its due, and I don’t want to give you a — actually, just selfishly, I don’t want a sound bite of it reported, but, yeah, I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work. Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships . . . and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?

O’Rourke is vehemently opposed to building a wall on the southern border.

POLL: Is there a crisis on the border?

When asked how America can go about solving the crisis, Beto offered a poignant response: “I don’t know.”

Beto, if and when he decides to run, will face stiff competition.

Gillibrand, Warren, Harris, Gabbard, Castro, Klobuchar, and others have already declared.

Next up? Maybe Bernie, Biden, Holder, and Michelle Obama? You never know!

Stay tuned for more Beto shenanigans in the near future.
