There was nothing but miles of empty fields surrounding four supporters of Hillary Clinton outside the Riverfront Sports Complex in Scranton, Pennsylvania, where Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was slated to speak Monday.
Granted, the photo was taken hours before the event was set to start, but it still speaks volumes, which is why, after it was shared by WBRE reporter Andy Mehalshick, it went viral thanks to a retweet by Northeastern Pennsylvania for Trump (NEPA).

Also known as “Team Trump PA,” NEPA for Trump said on its website that its purpose “is to organize Pennsylvanians who support Donald J. Trump for president and to form a common bond by region.”
It added that it holds “Formal associations with the Official Donald J. Trump campaign & will assist in campaigning and facilitating events in Pennsylvania during the 2016 presidential campaign.”
This makes the account pretty much an arm of the Trump campaign – an arm that Monday made sure t let other Trump supporters know about the loneliness of those four Clinton supporters above.
The retweet caused a small feud between Clinton and Trump supporters.
“That’s already more people than Trump would draw in Philly,” claimed one Clinton supporter.
But she was quickly put in her place when a Trump fan tweeted the following:

For the record, more people eventually showed up for Clinton’s event, but probably not nearly as many people as would have shown up for a rally for Trump.
