Donald Trump’s staff is sending out bulk emails and allowing people to bring up to five guests to increase attendance at his farewell ceremony.
It’s a great mess driving traffic:
(Scaramucci told them he wasn’t going.)

Trump is trying to outdo Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Donald Trump believes he can hold his own big event than later bragging about how big his audience was for Joe Biden’s inauguration. Trump is desperate and cannot give up the presidency’s attention and limelight. He has asked his staff that his departure draw a large crowd to Andrews Air Force Base.
The soon-to-be former president hopes that wall-to-wall TV channels will report on his departure. The reality is that outside of Fox, it’s hard to see any of the channels that give Trump the attention he craves.
Donald Trump is desperate to add his crowd with one final super-spreader event to bid farewell to the presidency.
Trump will be booted off the stage, and hopefully TV networks are largely ignoring his departure.
