Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Generating comparisons to his 2016 insurgent run for president that saw overflow crowds in nearly every town he visited, Sen. Bernie Sanders drew a "yuge" crowd to a rally in Los Angeles on Saturday as the 2020 presidential candidate made his first swing through the country's most populous state of California over the weekend. The Los Angeles Times put the estimated number of attendees at the rally in a sprawling city park at 12,000 people, but others suggested the number was much higher.

According to Heavy.com‘s reporting from Saturday evening:

The rally took place ... at the Grand Park downtown, across from City Hall. Exactly how many people attended isn't yet known, but the numbers are significant since the park can hold from 25,000 to 50,000 people, depending on the setup. On top of that, 22,000 RSVP'd on Facebook for Sanders' event in LA, and crowd size photos show a significant turnout. In fact, so many people showed up that an overflow crowd formed on the steps of City Hall across the street. An early report shared that 15,000 might have been there tonight, but it's not yet clear if this is accurate or includes overflow crowds.

"I look around at this enormous crowd," Sanders declared to those gathered in Grand Park, "I think not only are we going to win California, we're going to win the Democratic nomination."

Thank you to our "yuge" crowd who came out to our rally in Los Angeles today. This is what we mean when we say we are building a nationwide movement that will transform the country. #BernieInLA pic.twitter.com/T74cFVtj9Z
