People who attended former President Donald Trump’s recent rally in Arizona ended up “peeing their pants” because it so hard to leave the rally.

On Saturday night, thousands of people were in attendance for Trump’s return to the stage, and they were ecstatic to hear what he had to say.

The rally included the standard list of grievances and conspiracy theories about the election of 2020 being stolen from him.

But for some people, the joy was short-lived when they attempted to leave the rally but were forced to wait for hours in the parking lot.

According to some reports on social media, people were not permitted to leave until Trump left.

Long lines of cars, along with complaints about waiting hours in the parking lot, have been featured on viral TikToks and tweets.

In a report from the Arizona Republic, ”many people leaving the venue had to wait more than an hour before they could exit the dirt parking lots and get on the road.”

The departure delay led to the long lines to get into the event, which is only accessible by a single two-lane road.

A TikToker who goes by @special_head had conversations with people waiting to leave the former commander-in-chief’s rally in Arizona. One woman claimed that people couldn’t leave until Trump did because the Secret Service needed to secure the road

“The Secret Service can go f*** themselves. And f***ing know how to do their job right,” said a man sporting a “Gods Guns & Trump” T-shirt.

Afterwards, a woman wearing a red vest with a USA pin on the lapel claimed that she was an attorney thought the situation was “bulls***” and never had “freedom restricted like this” before.

“And of all places for it happen. My first Trump rally.

“This is false imprisonment… They’re treating us like commoners. Let all the VIPs go first, and who cares about the little people.”

She also said that before the general public could leave, Trump, merchants, recreational vehicles, and others had the priority to head out first.

Another video from @special_head featured the unsubstantiated claim that some women peed themselves while waiting.

This wasn’t the first time Trump had people wait long at a rally.

According to The Hill, during Trump’s Nebraska campaign event in 2020, hundreds of people were forced to wait hours in frigid weather.

Elsewhere, reports on Twitter spoke on the miles-long traffic lineups to approach and exit the event.

This was Trump’s first rally since he failed his reelection bid. Later this month, Trump is set to hold another rally in Texas.
