Trump supporters left out in the cold in Omaha

Trump did a rally in Omaha, Nebraska last night, and had his supporters bussed in to the event location from parking lots almost four miles away. When his rally was over, he left without bussing his supporters back to their cars. It was below freezing and thousands of supporters were left stranded. Some had to be treated for hypothermia, and at least a few ended up in the hospital.

The buses, the huge crowd soon learned, couldn’t navigate the jammed airport roads. For hours, attendees — including many elderly Trump supporters — stood in the cold, as police scrambled to help those most at-risk get to warmth.

Thirty people needed medical attention over the course of the rally, Omaha police spokesman Michael Pecha told The Washington Post on Wednesday. Seven were taken to local hospitals “with a variety of medical conditions.” It was not immediately clear how many of those those were related to the wait outside the venue.
