Pink Sea of Support?
If Planned Parenthood holds a rally at the Democratic National Convention that no one attends, did it really happen? Thanks to political reporters Mary Katherine Ham and John McCormack, we have photos to prove it did.
According to photos taken by Ham, a Fox News contributor, and McCormack, a writer for The Weekly Standard, women not only weren't watching, they were nowhere near the rally. McCormack tweeted that he was "being generous" by saying there were a few hundred in attendance.
Planned Parenthood tweeted a positive review of the event, including retweeting Sandra Fluke's statement exaggerating the attendance at the rally: "Looking from the stage, it was a pink sea of support."
Pictures posted by Ham to Twitter show a crowd of less than a hundred people in the plaza, who seemed outnumbered by security and police that were on hand. The crowd of participants on the stage also seemed to outnumber the attendees.
More like a puddle.
