Trump ignores science at dangerous indoor rally in Nevada

9/14/20
President Donald Trump offered a glaring new example of his refusal to put medical science before politics with a large indoor rally Sunday night that made a mockery of social distancing, while the pandemic he mismanaged has now claimed more than 194,000 American lives. The event in Nevada -- his second rally in the state in as many days -- did not only risk the health of those present, thousands of whom were packed together inside a manufacturing facility in defiance of the state's ban on local gatherings of 50 people or more. It also has the potential to turn into a super spreader event that could seed Covid-19 outbreaks in the wider community. Trump hadn't held an indoor rally in nearly three months, since his last one, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after which the city saw a surge in cases and multiple campaign staffers along with Secret Service agents tested positive for the virus. The jarring scenes of the indoor event clashed with footage from the first weekend of NFL games that went ahead in cavernous empty stadiums, reflecting how almost alone the President, who might be expected to set an example, is responsible for the most dangerous breaches of his own government's coronavirus recommendations.

Major television networks, including cable outlets, decided not to send their crews and correspondents into the rally for their own safety. It's not unusual for media companies to take steps to shield their employees in war zones abroad, but such precautions are exceedingly rare on home soil. The same ditching of inconvenient facts to service Trump's personal whims, political goals and conspiracy theories will likely be highlighted again on Monday when the President visits one of the raging Western wildfires in California, where more than 3 million acres have burned this year and 22 people have died since mid-August. The President insists that the fires are caused by poor forest management. Scientists argue that they have been exacerbated by climate change. As the election fast approaches, the administration's broader attempt to reshape reality to benefit and accommodate an unrestrained President is accelerating, including among government officials who appear to be trying to stop the full story of the coronavirus emergency from coming out. Trump's decision not to share what he knew about the deadly potential of the disease back in February -- detailed in Bob Woodward's new book -- may have cost tens of thousands of lives.

Not content with almost 40,000 new US COVID cases and ~1,000 COVID dead a day and a world-leading 198,000+ COVID dead, Trump holds these COVID "super-spreader" political rally's.

Obviously, Trump doesn't care how many more Americans die of COVID. All that matters is his reelection.

That will almost certainly cost people their lives. It makes me angry.

Do not gather in crowds during a pandemic.

President Trump says he is the Law and Order President.
That seems to be true only when he gets to choose which laws to follow.

President Trump campaign broke Nevada's orders regarding indoor gathering during the pandemic.

His excuse, It is a peaceful protest. Seems to me most protests have been outside.:mrgreen:

Guys, guys, guys.... It's no more harmful than the common flu. It's a Democrat hoax. Trump believes all these things, and so should you.

Apparently the people at the rally don't care either.

They are morons. Two neighbors of mine attended the rally and they are nutters just like all the other Trump supporters.

Being "law and order" means you don't violate state orders no matter how much you disagree with them.

What a bunch of rubes.

Are you as angry with all the protests that have gone on throughout the US that will assuredly kill people?

cabse5 cannot refute the OP, so he plays the whataboutism card.

“If you can join tens of thousands of people protesting in the streets, gamble in a casino, or burn down small businesses in riots, you can gather peacefully under the 1st Amendment to hear from the President of the United States,” campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said.

I would have worn a mask but Murtaugh makes an excellent point.

Trump rallies are just another thing the antiTrumps will politicize to go after Trump.

What's awesome is how everyone behind him had to wear a mask.

Actually, no he didn't. The OP was about trump, his followers, and their reckless disregard for science. Now are you going to own up to this, or are you going to keep deflecting?

(We both know which way you're going to go. I just want to make sure it's official.)

Yes. What part of NO LARGE GATHERINGS do people (even protestors) NOT understand?

You are in the minority. Threads are started that are concerned with Trump gatherings like these. How many threads are started concerned with the possibility of spread over protest gatherings? I haven't seen one. Especially not one thread started by you.

Trump supporters are amazingly stupid. Like he is. No wonder they support him. He makes them feel smart.

Do you also wish to comment about the reckless disregard of science by the protestors? How many protests have there been compared to the number of Trump rallies?

EDIT: Do you (or Biden) complain about the disregard of science by the protestors?

And? It's my sole job in life to dance for you and start a thread? You must think you are god or something because only such a delusional thought can come to the conclusion it's "MY" job to start a thread to please your idiotic thoughts. Your comments are class D garbage.

I thought you complained about whataboutism but here you are engaging in it.

And cabse makes it official:

Cabse5 demands the need to deflect onto a scapegoat, because he is neither willing nor able to comment on his president's and his followers' reckless disregard for others' personal safety.

He is free to get the speck out of the protesters' eyes after he gets the plank out of his. :)

I'm assuming you're against the protests which are also against science and have the great possibility of spreading the virus.
