esquire.com – In this installment of Whatever Happened to the Rails?, the Republican candidate for President of the United States showed up in Columbus, Ohio and blew the lid off the International Conspiracy of Illuminati Fire Marshals, according to this dispatch from, yes, The Columbus Dispatch.
John Page, general manager of the Greater Columbus Convention Center, said that because of construction and another event moving out, the capacity for Trump’s event in Exhibit Hall E was set at 1,000 by the fire marshal. It’s smaller than the number allowed at a November rally for Trump, but Page noted that event was in a larger space, Exhibit Halls E and F and there was no construction at that time. Ohio Right to Life President Mike Gonidakis expressed dismay on Twitter claiming the capacity was “rigged.” Gonidakis’ group endorsed Trump today. Speaking with reporters prior to his Columbus town hall meeting, Trump criticized the decision to cap the crowd at 1,000. “It’s a disgrace…I just want to tell you that it’s politics at its lowest.” He said up to 6,000 people might have attended the event if attendance had not been capped by the fire marshal. Trump criticized a fire marshal in Colorado Springs, Colorado last week. The fire marshal also capped the number of people allowed in the Trump rally. Trump then said the fire marshal didn’t know what he was doing and was “probably a Democrat,” according to The Denver Post.
