Hundreds of people at a Florida campaign rally in featuring First Lady Michelle Obama began chanting “Hail Obama”, according to a television reporter who was covering the event.
The rally was held at Daytona Beach’s Ocean Center. More than 5,000 people showed up — the crowd described as restless and boisterous.
Synan said the chanting came during a warm up session before the First Lady appeared on stage.
He repeated the claim in a follow-up message on Twitter, “True. Would not lie. Chanting “Hail Obama.”
Synan later said someone in the crowd would yell “Hail Obama” and then “hundreds that could hear that person would repeat.”
