With Hillary Clinton pulling out all the stops to drive her low-information base to the polls, to include rolling out pop stars Beyonce and Jay Z, rival Donald Trump shrugged off the need for bread and circuses.
Speaking to a crowd in Hershey, Pa., the GOP nominee instead gave voters the opportunity to hear from an actual candidate in the race as opposed to Clinton resorting to entertaining them in Cleveland with a concert featuring the recording artists.
“I didn’t have to bring J-Lo or Jay Z,” Trump said. “I am here all by myself. Just me. No guitar, no piano, no nothing.”
The Clinton crowd was quick to scram once the music went silent.
Fox & Friends hosts noted, “the challenges facing Mrs. Clinton were clearly on display on Friday. When she took the stage and began making the case for her candidacy, dozens of people began leaving the arena, the performance now over.”

As for the comparison, social media users were quick to note which candidate was more successful in drawing an audience.
