Representative Paul Gosar speaks with Lake Havasu City and Mohave County officials at the Chamber of Commerce.

Republican Congressman Paul Gosar was an apparent no-show at Trumpstock, a troubled three-day event to celebrate President Donald Trump that was moved at the last minute from the Mohave County Fairgrounds to a pizza restaurant. 

Gosar was the only elected official scheduled to speak at the event who had not publicly dropped out.

Ultimately, Gosar followed the path of fellow Republicans like Arizona Arizona Corporation Commissioner Justin Olson and state Rep. Kelly Townsend – both of whom had been listed as speakers, but backed out – and did not attend.

Olson told Arizona Mirror last month that he would not attend. Townsend, who was a late addition to the lineup of speakers, pulled out Oct. 4, the day the event kicked off.

Mohave County Sheriff Doug Schuster was also listed as a speaker, but after the Mirror published a story noting that event organizer Laurie Bezick included his name on the Trumpstock website as an attendee, a representative from Schuster’s office said he had never agreed to attend.

Gosar, who was scheduled to speak Saturday afternoon immediately following former revenge pornographer turned U.S. Senate hopeful Craig Brittian, did not come onto the impromptu stage set up behind a Golden Valley pizza restaurant.

The event was originally set to take place at the Mohave County Fairgrounds, but Bezick’s permit was revoked by the city of Kingman who determined that she did not have adequate security for the event.

Bezick applied for the permit 11 days before the event was set to take place.

Since the revocation of the permit, Bezick has taken to social media to state that the city of Kingman opposes Trump and veterans, and that the Kingman deputy chief of police is “out to destroy” her event.

Livestreams of the event appeared to show roughly 40 people in attendance to see the variety of speakers, which included congressional candidates from Iowa and Maryland, as well as other political activists.

Gosar’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

They didn't count all the people that were there "in spirit". CNN always counts those folks whenever a Democratic event is being held. Add that number and you'll end up with 500,040 Trumpstock attendees.

Let's get this right, Lil Simple has stated numerous times that CNN is trash and now considers them as a "source?" Having not watched CNN in decades I cannot say for certain, but Simple's "people in spirit" sounds like utter BS.

I saw the video. It was comical. They humiliated that poor horse. But it did prove there were more horses' rear ends at the "event" than horses!

No surprise there, Dawn. And I wonder why Simple didn't go back today since he seemed to love Loserpalooza so much?

[thumbup][thumbup][thumbup] I saw that video too! Did you hear the one guy say he prefers donkeys!

Wonder why Capt Sillyhat didn't go to Loserpalozza? Guess he's just another typical DOT who "support" the lying, draft-dodging, coward, currently squatting in our White House, but when it comes to actually spending any money - even for gas to the BIGGEST EVENT IN ARIZONA HISTORY - he's just another blowhard no-show. Also noticed the other morons here who support the liar didn't go. Maybe they should have all car-pooled and then the sponsors would had to lay out the cash for a third phone booth.

While I was there a flock of "Trumpeter swans" flew over. As if they'd practiced things beforehand, the birds aligned in perfect V formation as an indication to President Trump's impending - 2020 victory. Most everyone witnessed it except for some folks sitting inside the restaurant. Did I mention that the crust was out of this world? I ordered a chicken and spinach pizza this trip. There's just something delightful about spinach and olive oil on a pizza. "Popeye" must feel the same.

Lil Simple is beyond belief with his flights (pun intended) of fancy. Consider this gem, “While I was there a flock of ‘Trumpeter swans’ flew over.” Now let us look at the facts regarding Trumpeter Swans – “Their habitat is large shallow ponds, undisturbed lakes, pristine wetlands, wide slow rivers, and marshes in northwestern and central North America, with the largest numbers being found in Alaska. They migrate to the southern tier of Canada, the eastern part of the northwest states in the United States, especially to the Red Rock Lakes area of Montana, the north Puget Sound region of northwest Washington state.” Migrating Trumpeter Swans have not been seen in Arizona in…gosh, forever.

— would had —? “There is nothing funny about misspelling a word. It is a grievous mistake and one I take very seriously. Finding humor in such a situation demonstrates why DOT's are always incensed when their ignorance is pointed out because they do not value accuracy in communication”. . “Rovr 09/03/2019” Seems to be some “missing accuracy” in this comment which you take “very seriously” Rovr you’re such a pompous buffoon you make me laugh everyday!

“HwyRovr” - Thank you for quoting me and recognizing just how correct I am when I point out proper spelling and grammar are important for effective communication. Although I am humbled by your continued adoration and worship of me I will not be able to reciprocate – I’m not into that (not that there is anything wrong with it).

Rovr, I think those “phone booths” you speak of disappeared about the same time the long defunct Route 66 was decommissioned, ya’ think Gomer? What episode of Route 66 are you watching tonight on your DVD’s? What are “Todd and Buz” up to lately? [thumbup][beam] Capt. SH

"route 66"

Pardon me. Forty people? I beg to differ. How 'bout the thousands of folks there "in spirit"? Whenever CNN covers a Democratic event they'll include "in spirit" attendees. I was inside eating pizza most of the time, but I'd guesstimate maybe half a million strong of those supporters at minimum. My pal Donnie (not his real name) elected to go to "Big Boy's Toys", but asked me to pass on to Trumpstock organizers that he'd be there "in spirit". He wore his MAGA hat at the Havasu event so that's worth something. The good thing about attending gettogethers with mostly "in spirit" guests is that traffic is at a minimum when it's time to leave. I was home in 54 minutes. I swear I saw Tony Orlando while there but I did not see Dawn.

HavasuGuy

Gosar might have been scared off because he learned that law enforcement was running a child sex sting operation at the loserpalooza event. I saw the video of the crowd size - it was funnier than all get out! Not just the small number of people present (less than 40) but also the very limited amount of teeth present too! It was a very sad group of people...

Now that is classic Simple. Forty people show up and lil Simple talks about thousands of non-existent people who were there "in spirit." And of course we cannot ignore his "swearing" he saw Tony Orlando there. There is a name of this type of malady.

—of — for — whole lotta misspelling going here! The Rovr has a problem with that! “There is nothing funny about misspelling a word. It is a grievous mistake and one I take very seriously.

According to a reliable source Loserpaloosa organizers were forced to bring in a second phone booth to handle the overflow crowd.
