    My friend was there and his feet froze. He walks 6-7 miles a day but not in 10 weather. Imagine the out of shape folks and little kids that were dragged out there by their parents. My friend took a picture of one kid that was under extreme duress.

    Today they had a car parade. In other news folks have been uncomfortable at one time or another in their lives.

    Take your feelings out of it. Whittle it down. Nobody made anyone do anything. PERIOD. There are always options. It's called owning it.

    Not sure what happened. I would say if you bus people in, you gotta bus ‘em back.

    At the same time, you go out in winter weather, you’d better be prepared for it. No problem spending all day outside if it’s 30 or 10 degrees, if you are fit, and prepared.

    Probably mistakes made all around. Those who botched it, be it Trump’s people, bus people (if a factor) or attendees, should own it.

    Don’t know the details and sorry to hear of the cold induced illness/injuries. Are the aggrieved complaining or blaming Trump?

    No, George, it's called being abandoned.

    There WERE buses for transport to parking. Forty buses for 20,000+ folks takes time. Some opted to walk. The last people to load up waited about three hours. That sucks, but it’s hardly the chaos, danger, and screwups alluded to in this thread. The weather wasn’t that cold, and I can assure you Nebraskans are plenty tough enough to handle winter.

    Sounds like another “Orange Man Bad” story.

    People who live in Nebraska should know what weather conditions could develop and wear appropriate clothing and gear.

    It is called individual personal responsibility and planning.

    Maybe they were Californian refugees.

    Sorry to hear that, but a question, "How frozen were they? Was he one of those who walked to their vehicles? What efforts were required by first responders to treat the frostbite?

    So he is familiar with caring for his feet. Why did he let himself get in that predicament?

    Duress?

    I know. It's always someone else's fault. I'll remember that the next time I can't find my car in the lot of the local Piggly Wiggly, wandering around aimlessly in the snow wearing shorts and flip flops. I"ll demand the manager's head on a spike, that is if I can find my way back to the front door.

    Maybe the manager will offer you a drink.... or the whole bottle?

    So was it 10 degrees? 30 degrees? Just asking. If people had enough warm clothes on the stand in the cold for an hour and a half, you’d think they’d have no problem not freezing to death while walking. In any case, the campaign effed this one up and there’s no defense for the blunder. Stupid.
