&;Deplorables&; are flocking to Craigslist to get their hands on tickets to today&;s Donald J. Trump rally, with some sellers asking as much as $200 each.


Another seller is offering a package for $1000 that includes four tickets and Doral golf shirts.


Tickets for the event at Germain Arena in Estero (right in the middle between Ft. Myers and Naples on &8217;s west coast) were free on Trump&8217;s website until Friday afternoon when the campaign cut off requests when it realized that the number of supporters requesting tickets — upwards of 15,000 tickets were requested — was far exceeding the venue&8217;s capacity of 8,000.

Trump visited Miami on Saturday where supporters came out wearing &8220;deplorable&8221; gear in reaction to Democratic presidential challenger Hillary Clinton&8217;s remarks a week ago in New York saying that &8220;half of Trump&8217;s supporters&8221; should be in &8220;the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it.&8221;

Trump capitalized on the gaffe, taking the stage at the James L. Knight Center saying, “Welcome to all you deplorables.”

The latest CNN poll shows that Trump has a within-the-margin-of-error lead over Clinton in its latest statewide poll.
