“I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October. I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas.”
Donald Trump (aka Trumph – the Insult Comic President™).
It turns out, the rally on October 22, will be at NRG Arena an aging tiny dump of a venue that seats about 8000 and has exactly four events on its schedule between now and the end of March other than hosting exciting events like mule pulling during the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show. Trump aides claim that they could not get NRG Stadium (75,000+) or Toyota Center (19,000) for the event scheduled for the first day of early voting. But what was so special about that date? And in fact, there are at least a half dozen larger venues in the state (ATT Stadium in Arlington, Anerican Airlines Center in Dallas, Minute Maid Park in Houston, the Alamodome and AT&T Center in San Antonio, Fort Worth Convention Center).
