Think about it.
If it had been Donald Trump at Joslyn the local news media would have been jumping all over the story. The BPD’s website and Twitter page would have contained multiple announcements, and the City’s information office would have PR’d the hell out of it.
There would have been hourly updates about street traffic and potential safety closures in the area. No two ways about it. And the media would have gotten its news cue from the city.
Instead, the right-wing hate sites are having a field day over this..
Bill Clinton plays — to 100 people?
JUNE 3, 2016
BY OLAF EKBERG
Hillary Clinton’s dreams of the Democratic nomination for president may turn into a nightmare in California.
Both Hillary and Bill are going to be going almost non-stop in the Golden State from now until Tuesday to stave off an upset by Bernie Sanders.
The rapidly aging Bill Clinton has five public events on tap today — two more than his typical three.
In Burbank, he’s playing to a paltry crowd, which one reporter pegs at 100 people.

Cadre bucolique pour ce meeting de Bill Clinton. Une centaine de personnes à Burbank, banlieue de Los Angeles
2:47 PM – 3 Jun 2016
“Bucolic setting for this meeting of Bill Clinton. A hundred people in Burbank, outskirts of Los Angeles,” Frederic Autran, a reporter for French publication Liberation tweeted, according to the translated version.
The venue amounted to a small grove of trees outside the Joslyn Adult Center.
David Montero, a reporter for Southern California News Group, said there were “more than 100 people” in attendance.
Cooper Rummell of KNX called it a “small rally.”
Frederic Carbonne of Radio France tweeted a picture of the crowd, which may be more than 100, but is definitely small.
The BPD must have previously known about this event. They and the Secret Service would have been all over Izay and Joslyn way ahead of time. At least two or three days.
But, they went out of their way to ignore mentioning it to the public. Why?
The only possible reason is that someone wanted to sabotage the event. Or at least not promote it. This NEVER happens with other political visitors to Burbank. You can be damned sure too that if this had been Trump it would have been much different.
Rogers of all people should be up in arms about the fact that some of his staff members are making political/bureaucratic decisions against the probable Democratic nominee for President. Think he will be?
Again, you think Burbank would have kept a Trump appearance quiet? That no one would have said anything until the very last minute?
