Y’alls president is still out here scamming and scheming, so it seems. While he’s trying to boast about his upcoming rally in Tulsa, folks on Twitter are calling him out on his seemingly fraudulent tactics.
Craigslist is currently trending on Twitter and it’s all because of an ad purporting to need minority actors for an event in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday, June 20th — the same day as Trump rally (yes, the one that was originally schedule on Juneteenth in the same city as the historic Tulsa massacre).
LOL, sure Spanky.
Is that why you’re having to pay “excited and enthusiastic MINORITY Actors and Actresses” on Craigslist to hold signs?
What a scam artist.
What a sad buffoon. pic.twitter.com/fagEM27nrk

But, is it real? Apparently, this kind of thing has happened before, and in the past it was fake.
I see the “Look! A Craigslist ad promising to pay people to go to a rally!” thing is going around again, and just… *sigh*
No. It’s fake. It’s always fake. Every time.

A reminder that the whole thing about an online ad saying “actors needed” has come up over and over again before Trump’s rallies (and other events) and it has always been mis/disinformation. This is almost certainly the case with upcoming rallies in Tulsa and elsewhere, too.

However, in the past, it’s also been very, very real. According to The Hollywood Reporter, back in 2015 Trump’s campaign offered actors $50 to cheer for him at Presidential announcement.
Now, of course we did our own search of the Tulsa Craigslist under talent gigs and event gigs, and we must note no ads for actors popped up, just vendors.
Does that mean they were never there or just recently deleted … you be the judge!
