    Whoever handled logistics should have adapted and gotten more transportation...

    I am betting this won't happen again

    Trump supporters are not little *****es. They will survive and wont need to sue anyone.

    They would all do it over again

    If Trump rally attendees can't be counted on to be responsible and plan for cold weather, what does that say about Trump rally attendees?

    We'll see. It takes more than 24 hours to prepare a lawsuit.

    When he runs again in 2025, he can fix it.

    I’d wait for a real accounting before commenting. ​

    The buses never came - folks had to walk three miles in freezing weather.

    All this after standing in line for two hours to get in and six hours at the rally

    How would you like to be that kid?

    As noted above, buses were available both ways. Temperature was in the mid-thirties initially; it dropped slowly as the night went on, to around 30F by midnight.

    When did you get to the rally? Did you park in the lot or at the park and ride?

    My buddy took the park and ride. Others parked in the lot. The ones that parked in the lot actually made out better than the park and riders but the traffic jam bottle necked so everyone was sitting in traffic.

    That's quite a stretch there. Don't strain yourself.

    I did find this article. It's DailyMail.UK which is yugely anti-Trump. That said, there are some good nuggets of information if you read closely.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...ft-cold-presidents-air-strip-rally-Omaha.html

    First, the crowd size was 2 if not 3 times bigger than they expected. They had detailed double the typical numbers of buses (40 vs the usual 20). More importantly, it seems the route between "on site" parking and remote parking was serviced mostly by one road. The buses had difficulty making the trips because the personal cars of those early enough to park in the originally designated place blocked traffic. Trump sized traffic jam.

    I'm willing to cut a bit more slack to the "handlers" of this rally than I did at first.
