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.

It takes a special kind of stupid to hear their Dear Orange Leader admit to intentionally understating the dangers of the virus and then still decide to get together with a bunch of other idiots indoors with no masks, social distancing or other safety precautions.

How many more Herman Cain's does Trump want?

#1 especially the ones being interviewed dangling a mask by two fingers saying "this is supposed to project you from a pandemic?" Another bluntly said Corona Virus is fake news, it's all made up. I can't believe the pure ignorance, but it's right there for display.

It sure continues to seem like Despicable Demented Donnie is trying to lose the election by putting his simpleton MAGAbillies in harms way. Then the Mango Maniac will claim the elections were rigged. hahahahaha

The Deplorables blame the governors for not stopping the pandemic, saying Trump has done everything he was supposed to do to cease the spread. Meanwhile the Head Deplorable is holding indoor rallies prohibited by state law.

Great! Pack'email in so tight they're shoulder to shoulder & rile them up so they're all screaming and spreading the Covid.

Obviously the state governor should deal with this.

As many as it takes. And maybe a few more, like icing on a big, fat coronacake.

They know they are losing in disgrace so screw everyone.... sort of like Saddam leaving Kuaite's oil fields.

There is nothing that says "despot loser" like being defeated and leaving behind an eco-disaster for good measure... just because you can.

COVID19 response is Trumpibunkerboi's eco-disaster.

Donald Trump enjoys hurting people. That's no mystery. What's mysterious is that people line up to be hurt.

I believe Trump actually got the Corona virus, had a fairly non-symptomatic case and now feels immune to it which he probably is but his fans, like Herman Cain are not and more of them will die because of his arrogance. He simply doesn't care.

Pres Trump's Michigan rally was also a possible super-spreader event...

There's a photo of the event in this article. Only a smattering of masks...

Trump keeps lying about how the US Covid-19 situation compares to other countries. Here are the facts.
www.vox.com

...The rally took place on a day when 36,000 new cases were reported across the country -- a number many times greater than the roughly 1,900 that were reported in Germany, the 500 in Japan, or the 600 in Canada.

There were more than 1,100 Covid-19 deaths in the US on Thursday, compared to 25 in France, 71 in Spain, and four in South Korea.

Over the past week, out of European and Asian countries, only Spain has averaged more daily cases per 100,000 people than the US.

Yet Trump tried to convince his supporters, who crammed into an airplane hangar without social distancing and with very few masks, that things here are going great....

I am not sorry a bunch of Republicans are in close proximity during a pandemic. I am also not sorry a bunch of Let Us Pray fanatics are in close proximity. I can protect myself and my family as much as possible. What's wrong with a bunch of fake virus Republicans sharing with each other? I love the Darwin Award!

I counted 23 out of 300 with masks in the picture (actually closer to 297) or about 7-8%.
I didn't count anyone who had their back to the camera.

My son works with a bunch of Trump supporters who didn't even know who Herman Cain was. That is the level of intelligence we are dealing with. They are total dunces who don't even remember the potential nominees from their own convention less than four years ago.

#18 | POSTED BY ILOVEYOU -- They dont only bring harm to themselves. They refuse to wear masks EVERYWHERE, not just their super spreader events. They go from these places back to their homes, then send their kids to school to infect teachers and other children that take it home to their own families. Stop acting as though their decisions are not affecting the entire community.

The next 8 weeks will be fascinating. I think it would be quite funny if Nancy Pelosi becomes President because neither Biden or Trump are the declared winner. Merica won't survive another 4 years of Orange Jesus. Half of Mericans think the virus is fake and Orange Jesus doesn't work for Putin. Many Mericans believe the earth is flat, the earth is 6000 years old, Shree Bagwan Rashneeshee was a god and they will die and have their own planet next to God. Merica is in seriously Bigly bad trouble. Millions of Mericans won't go back to work for years and thousands of businesses will never reopen. State and federal tax reserves are devastated. More job losses are coming. Massive evictions are coming. The 2nd Great Depression is here. Mericans haven't been told yet.

I do have a concern for them.

The person they have chosen as their party leader is actively leading them to possible sickness and death.

I am not concerned. The Republicans have resorted to and accepted an absolute attack on Democrats. The rule of law and the attack on the election system does not evoke sympathy from me. Their lack of willingness to wear a face diaper indicates they have no concern for safeguarding my health.

"I believe Trump actually got the Corona virus, "

I doubt it. He's over 70 and I don't think his fat bloated body could take it. But you never know. Even a loser gets lucky sometimes. He somehow won the election last time didn't he? But I don't think Trumpy's luck is gonna hold this time. Rona don't care what you believe. If the Rona wants you The Rona will take you.

You may believe there will be a valid election. Did you ever think you would see the Senate conduct an impeachment hearing with no witnesses? Did you ever think you would see the Department of Justice cover for the illegal acts of a President? Did you ever think the American President would collude with Russia and half the Mericans don't believe it? There will be no legitimate election. Republicans don't see reality. Don't fall into the same trap!

Trump Says He Wasn't Personally At Risk in Indoor Vegas Rally
www.bloomberg.com

...Donald Trump defended holding an indoor campaign rally in Henderson, Nevada, on Sunday despite the ongoing pandemic, telling the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he wasn't personally in any danger.

"I'm on a stage and it's very far away," Trump told the newspaper in an interview. "And so I'm not at all concerned."

Trump's rally at a Henderson warehouse was the campaign's first such event indoors in nearly three months. Thousands of the president's supporters attended the event, and few of them practiced social distancing or wore masks to protect against the coronavirus.

The state's Democratic governor, Steve Sisolak, said the president was "reckless and selfish" and had endangered his supporters. Trump called Sisolak "a political hack" in his interview with the Review-Journal....

"I'm on a stage and it's very far away," Trump told the newspaper in an interview. "And so I'm not at all concerned."

Trump's supporters are too stupid to hear this and realize he knows they're a bunch of chumps. He's actually admitting that social distancing is important - for only him. He's "not at all concerned" - for anyone else.

That's why it's important to win overwhelmingly so there is no debate. And I am not talking in the popular vote.

If it comes down to one state like Florida then we are screwed.

If it is overwhelming then Trumpy lands on the fraudulent income tax square and goes directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

Though the odds are he will be able to buy his way out of jail in no time.

Re 30

And also it's not true that even if he is "on a stage and it's very far away," that he is "safe".

He is at risk. And the risk depends on many factors such as how many infected are in the room and how much virus is being shed, how well the air is circulated and filtered and most of all whether Trumpy drank his bleach and shoved his presidential UV light up his nose this morning.

Well whadaya know... it sure looks like we have us a regular David Koresh type running the country prattling on tales of disaster... and inspiring a new suicide cult.

Yay
