Over the weekend, Politicon 2017 was held in Pasadena, California. It is a convention with a comic twist for political junkies to gather and debate. The list of speakers was not too surprising — it included Ann Coulter, Tomi Lahren, Jason Miller, Jake Tapper and Joy Reid, just to name a few.
In a not so surprising turn of events, the turnout, or lack thereof, for CNN and especially anchor Jake Tapper was abysmal.
It appeared the network had to practically beg people to come and listen to them by offering free food, and even that didn’t work.
Journalist Mike Cernovich captured what appeared to be the meager gathering and shared it on Twitter.
