2 months ago 10

HUNDREDS of Trump fans were left stranded in the cold AGAIN for the third time in just one week after a Georgia rally.

Supporters were left in 46F cold for hours on Sunday night – just days after supporters at rallies in Omaha, Nebraska and Butler, Pennsylvania were also left waiting.

Supporters in Rome, Georgia waited hours after the event for buses to take them to their cars when the transportation failed to show, Newsweek reported.

NBC reporter Julie Tsirkin shared a video on Twitter showing hundreds of Trump supporters lined up after the rally as they tried to head home.

Tsirkin wrote that the supporters were a mile from where Trump held the rally in the windy 46F cold.

Some supporters sat or lay on the ground, Tsirkin said.

In a separate tweet, Tsirkin wrote that some of the attendees were "older and disabled."

Some of those left waiting tried to hitch rides amid the pandemic, Tsirkin tweeted.

Trump drew a crowd of up to 30,000 people as he spoke at Richard B. Russell Regional Airport, Newsweek reports.

Journalist Michael Tracey described people trying to leave the event as a "logistial s**tshow."

Tracey tweeted that people were "melting down left and right."

He said there were "screaming matches between people over who gets to board the returning buses..."

"I heard variations of “this is the biggest nightmare...” shouted in frustration several times," Tracey tweeted.

Some attendees wrote that they walked three or four miles back to their cars, Newsweek reported.

The bus chaos came the same week that supporters in Nebraska and Pennsylvania were left waiting hours for transportation in similar incidents.

Last Tuesday, rally-goers in Omaha waited for hours in the freezing cold at Eppley Airfield after buses failed to show.

Omaha police spokesman Michael Pecha said around 30 people needed medical attention at the event – and by the end of the night, seven people were hospitalized "with a variety of medical conditions," The Washington Post reported.

Trump campaign spokeswoman Samantha Zager released a statement blaming road closures for the incidents.

On Saturday, after Trump spoke to supporters at an airport in Butler, Pennsylvania, supporters were left waiting for two hours for buses, Newsweek reported.
