poland buses in fake fans to greet trump

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

2 years ago trump descended from the escalators at trump tower in the US city of manhattan to announce his presidency surrounded by people who had allegedly been hired to applaud his speech. fast forward 2 years and a similar situation is about to happen in poland. it is quite a trend now for east european authoritarian politicans to bus in supporters for speeches and rallies possibly out of fear that nobody will show up. but in developing and transitional countries, free food and drinks coupled with complimentary transportation is enough of a bribe to motivate crowds of fawning nationalists to turn up.

but the crowds of demonstrators that await trump this week in hamburg for the G-20 event will not have been bused in by anyone. you can read the hill article here.
