Did you listen to Jeb Bush make his announcement yesterday? Did you hear loud cheers from a crowd that seemed excited at the prospect that there could be another Bush as President? Was I the only one confused? I dont know one person who doesnt threaten to leave the Country if its Bush vs Clinton for President again. Cant imagine folks actually excited and cheering for Jeb.
It got me wondering, would someone like Jeb, or another candidate thats been struggling like he has, hire a crowd? Pay people to attend their rallies to make them seem like their gaining in popularity? We have seen Hillary Clinton stage appearances, knowing ahead of time the people shed interact with. Would a staged rally be out of the question for a struggling GOP candidate? According to Crowds On Demand, not at all.
Crowds on Demand is an American publicity firm. It claims to be the only rent a crowd service, providing its clients with the ability to hire actors to pose as fans. I decided to contact them, pretending to be an employee of a GOP candidate running for office. Their Founder/CEO, Adam Swart, responded. Here is our exchange

IS REVRUNT SHARPTON A BEATNIK??
No, he’s a deadbeat.
BADA BING!!!! BINGO!!
Rent a crowd service - previously referred to as a labor union.
$15 an hour plus bennies, right?
I said yesterday, TR, that crowd of Jeb’s behaved like paid staff, operatives, volunteers and donors. That was my first comment. Even a head bobber was positioned over his right shoulder. It was embarrassing. She was distracting and reminded everyone with a brain of Hillary the bobble head listening to speeches she likes.
Rent-a-crowd actually didn’t come to mind. Wow.
It was because they erupted out of sync with his punch lines. I mean, it was as if they were not even listening to what he was saying, but just mindlessly cheering the tone of his voice!
If you’re invested in someone, you’re going to hang with what he is saying with baited breath.
Jeb’s candidacy announcement was well stage-managed. I will not under any circumstances vote for him, but his handlers did a great job. That worries me because Amnesty will be a fatal blow to our country if Jeb pushes it through.
Don’t forget to throw this into the mix:
Fake politicians who campaign in front of fake crowds and who hire PR firms to tweet/facebook with fake followers...
I expect this crap from the left, not Republicans.
No diff anymore. :/
I expect it from Liberals regardless of their party affiliation.
"If it's good enough for the president, it's good enough for you!"
Be sure to check out their "services" and "talent".

That “Please Clap” audience may have been purchased. “Clapping” had not yet been penciled in the scripts. How were they to know when Jeb! the Metronome was done speaking?
