TikTok Teens Try to Scam Trump Rally Again, End Up Paying GOP $16K
When a Trump rally earlier in the year in Tulsa, Oklahoma didn’t get as many people as the GOP expected, people were quick to point fingers at Republicans. But it turned out that TikTok teens had sabotaged the event with fake RSVPs. Karma arrived. This time, when teens attempted to sabotage a Trump rally on Staten Island, they ended up paying $15,785 to the Republicans.
Pay to Hate – TikTok teens

“On Sept. 19, out-of-staters using fake, frequently lewd names — including ‘Grabemby DePussay,’ ‘Ivana Punchyou’ and ‘F–kyou Trump’ — began signing up online for the ‘TRiUMPh Rally,’ a free get-out-the-vote event,” according to the New York Post.
“We had about 1,500 RSVPs from Staten Islanders,” explained Staten Island GOP chairman Brendan Lantry. “Then all of a sudden we started seeing the numbers tick up to 10,000, 15,000, 75,000. We knew something was not right.”
Lantry’s wife Jessica was able to track down a TikTok video with over half-a-million views from a 19-year-old Brooklynite known as Felisrae, who essentially urged followers to sign up for the event and not attend. (The video has since been made private.)
“Do you hate this orange b**** as much as I do?” posed Felisrae, according to the Post. “It turns out that Trump is having a rally in Staten Island. … So what I did was, I reserved myself two seats. But I’m pretty sure that I have something to do that day. So, do what you want with this information.”
