Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 20, 2020

The Trump campaign has an order from the president: Find a way to get him back on the road and into megarallies to re-energize his base. In recent meetings with top campaign officials and White House aides, Trump has questioned why he's avoiding campaign events if its safe for him to travel in his official capacity.

I think he should have the rallies. I think he should shake as many hands as he possible can.

... Trump has questioned why he's avoiding campaign events if its safe for him to travel in his official capacity. ...

Not holding rallies is not solely for the purpose of keeping Pres Trump safe from COVID-19, it is also about not wanting those rallies to be massive super-spreading events.

Of course, Pres Trump seems to be looking at this only from his own selfish perspective, and seeming not to care in the least about the health or safety of his supporters and the communities they live in.

I don't think the Deplorable base would mind.

Trump and the repubs are seeming more delusional by the day. Reality just doesn't seem to penetrate the thick heads of these people. They talk about a quick return to "normal" with 30 some million people unemployed. The job losses haven't even stopped yet but they're prattling on about the quick recovery we all are going to enjoy.

They are taking no steps to trace and contain new infections. It's the scariest ---- thing I've ever seen. Total DENIAL on every level.

This is not going to work out at all well for anyone but the most connected and wealthy people.

GOOD! I hope he rallies like crazy! Maybe spikes in COVID cases among the faithful will thin the herd some!

I was thinking that somebody better at photoshop than me ought to do a nice image of tweety at his rally podium with a bunch of dead people on the steps behind him.

"Dead guys for trump" signs...

Seeing him side with NAZIs wasn't enough. Watching him stick children in cages wasn't enough.

I wonder if seeing people they know and love die will be enough for these people to understand that Trump is not a good person or on their side.

You know if it was only his ilk that would get sick and die from these events, I would say have at it. Unfortunately that is not the case.

Nah. I'm into women. And not fat ones, either. Thus, the move. I suppose I can relocate again if I develop an appetite for land whale.

Guy who had "No Fat Chicks" bumper sticker in the '80's. He'll think it made him look cool and won't understand why people are pointing and laughing.

More rallies! More and bigger crowds! MAGA!

Me? I plan to continue self-sequestering with my spouse until somebody with serious credentials says it's okay to venture out and about. Also, I must admit, I get a vicarious thrill when I view the box scores on various websites.

2. coronavirus.jhu.edu

Trump will NEVER quit, at least not until he's evicted, and possibly (hopefully) frog-marched out of the White House in irons and an orange jumpsuit.

When you select a candidate as awful as Godzillary, you open the door for a shameless, self-promoting attention seeker who needs such things as large rallies.

It's really your fault for supporting Hillary.

Hillary won the popular... the Berniebots gave Trumplethinskin the electoral. The pissants always whined Hillary didn't pay enough attention to Berniebot territory and they would go to Trumplethinskin... so ya see... 2,000 disgruntled Berniebots put Trumplethinskin in office. ergo: GFY ya little turd.

Nice try troll. You are not blaming this Trumptilian sized mess on us. We tried to warn you. In fact we even tried to remove this fool. You stopped us.

Now there are 100,000 dead Americans. Hope you are Frickin happy.

You opened Pandora's box by voting for and then protecting a moron.

Apparently this is what you wanted. How is that Benghazi investigation going? Has anyone found the Oranges of that investigation yet? We must find the Oranges!
