Get ready for a shitshow.

Donald Trump is bringing his circus act to St. Louis this Friday, with EventBrite showing a listing for a noon rally at the Peabody Opera House. Tickets are free, with doors opening at 9 a.m.

Last week, Bernie Sanders drew an estimated 6,000 people to Edwardsville for an over-capacity rally at Southern Illinois University's campus there. Peabody Opera House reportedly has a capacity of just 3,100. And, frankly, we could see that many protesters alone turning out for this thing.

So, brace yourselves. The presidential candidates are suddenly turning their attention to Missouri — is it any consolation that, in just one week, our moment in the sun will be over until autumn?
