Why Does Donald Trump Keep Asking Cameras to “Pan the Audience?”
If you watch Trump give a speech on TV or online, he always says the mainstream media is dishonest; that they report his audience to be smaller than it actually is. Trump maintains it’s a way to spread dis-information about the campaign, by making it appear the crowds are tiny. According to Conservative Treehouse, “Donald Trump says to the media “pan the crowds“, not because he wants to inflate his own ego or following, but rather because he needs YOU to see the visible representation that YOUR opinions and beliefs are widely held.
Trump is countering the MSM narrative which wants YOU to believe YOUR opinions are in the minority, and THEIR opinions as delivered are the MAJORITY. This is how the corporate media influence you.”
I found pictures of Trump’s audiences from his web site to compare to what is shown in the videos. Take a look at a few pictures.
Here’s his rally in Dallas. What you saw on the video feed:
