President Donald Trump's rallies are usually a hotbed of rowdy, wholehearted support for the President's rambling speeches, with chants demanding the imprisonment of private citizens and the deportation of American citizens.

But at a recent rally in Monroe, Louisiana, NBC political reporter Kelly O'Donnell noticed an unusual sight.

A number of Trump supporters at the rally began walking out.

Watch below.

It's unclear whether the supporters lost enthusiasm or if the event was finishing up and they were trying to beat traffic. But O'Donnell noted that it wasn't typical for his events.

Some hoped that the walkouts indicated a deeper loss of enthusiasm among Trump's base.

Others thought the deserters left after being paid.

It isn't unheard of for the Trump campaign to pay actors to cheer for him.

Others were more disturbed by the enthusiasm of those that remained, rather than those who left.

Only the people who left know why they did.

So far, they're not talking.

We'll find out in 2020 if this is just a moment or the collapse of a movement.

Whatever a person's reasons for bringing a child to a MAGA rally, comedian Michael Ian Black has created A Child's First Book of Trump, available here.


What would Harry do? Who would Harry be? What wold be his "normal" profession? Maybe one day we'll find out. At the moment J.K. Rowling doesn't seem interested in continuing Harry's story. So fans are left to ponder mere "what ifs." And the Potter fanatics are definitely creative about what Harry would face in life.

Whether it's participating in a Throwback Thursday, giving an internet flex or visually name-dropping Rosa Parks, it's been a busy week for Chandler Cosey.

On Monday, Cosey posted what at first appeared to be an innocent Throwback-Thursday-style comparison between baby Chandler in Detroit to an all-grown-up Cosey in Philadelphia.

Followers on Twitter, however, weren't so easily fooled.

Sometimes the cheapest things end up being the best investments. Seriously, the dollar store has pretty much everything you could ever need, and there are bargains everywhere from Ebay to thrift shops. It all just depends on where you look.

Commuting is not fun. People do weird things in public transportation so it comes as no surprise to hear subway horror stories like this one.

A commuter has been criticized for cleaning his teeth and spitting on the floor of a busy London Tube (subway) station during rush hour. And, it is gross.
