President Trump Brags That He Draws a Bigger Crowd Than Beyonce, but Is He Right?

Playing President Trump Claims He Draws a Larger Crowd Than Beyonce and Jay-Z

The president is taking on Beyoncé, boasting that he is a bigger draw than the singer.

A capacity crowd of 10,000 people packed The Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, where he held a boisterous rally Thursday night.

Trump said it was just like his election rallies, bragging that his crowds were bigger than Hillary Clinton’s, even when she brought out her A-list supporters. 

“She'd bring in Beyoncé and then Jay-Z," he said. "They were drawing crowds smaller than my crowds." 

Also on Thursday night, Beyoncé and Jay-Z held a concert at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey before more than 50,000 fans. 

Meanwhile, the QAnon phenomenon was again seen at the Trump appearance, just like in Tampa earlier this week. 

"No one knows exactly who he is," one Trump supporter said. 

No one knows for sure who or what Q is, but folks at the rally believe it is a shadowy figure inside the Trump administration who leaks secret information on social media.

"Q says it first, then Trump says it," said another Trump rally attendee. 

One supporter says Q drops clues on the internet and the president repeats them, proving a connection.

Jesse Walker, the author of "The United States of Paranoia: A Conspiracy Theory," discussed the Q sensation with Inside Edition. 

"It is structured like an alternate reality game," he said. "You have someone giving out clues and restructuring the puzzle." 

Some say the person may be named after Q from the James Bond films, while others believe he's the namesake of a "Star Trek" character. 

"For all the weirdness of what people who believe in QAnon might espouse, it is not a weird thing to see happen," Walker added. 

Though the QAnon people are getting a lot of attention now, the group has reportedly existed since about a month before the 2016 election.
