Perhaps it's like the TARDIS

...bigger on the inside.

Remember my musings on the rally the POTUS was holding on the Summerfest grounds? It seems our own esteemed mayor is fuzzy on the capacity of the BMO Harris stage, giving incredibly inaccurate attendance figures to the White House after the event.

As Breitbart’s Joel Pollack investigates, both The Wall Street Journal and Politico reported that President Obama’s Saturday rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin drew a crowd of 18,000 supporters.

That’s at least a bit odd, since the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the President was speaking at a 5,000-seat arena . The report added that “thousands more who sat in bleachers and stood on the pavement,” but made no mention of the abnormally large 18,000 estimate.

The article goes on to state that the source of the estimate was Mayor Barrett.

These days, it's not surprising that something the Democrats say is exaggerated. At least this is mostly true - there were people there. The media did get that point correct.
