No cameras.. why even bother with a rally?

Networks boycott Trump event over his repeat breach of coronavirus guidelines
Alex Woodward
The Independent

Several broadcasters won’t send camera crews inside Donald Trump’s indoor campaign events in Nevada over concerns that staff could be exposed to coronavirus.

CNN’s Brian Stelter, whose network will not be covering the president’s indoor rally on Sunday with its own camera crew, reports that news outlets have been forced to make “tough decisions about how to keep their staffers safe” while the president flouts public safety guidelines by increasing the risk of transmission among large groups at his indoor events.

“Major TV networks have decided not to send their camera crews inside, because they feel it will not be safe enough,” he said. “It’s not wise to go along with the president’s loosey-goosey approach."

The president has held six indoor campaign rallies in the month that followed after he had admitted to journalist Bob Woodward in a February interview that Covid-10 can be transmitted via the airborne virus.

“It goes through air, Bob,” the president said on 7 February, which was recorded and recently published in advance of his the journalist’s book Rage. "That's always tougher than the touch. You know, the touch, you don't have to touch things. Right? But the air, you just breathe the air and that's how it's passed … That’s very tricky one. That's a very delicate one."

In that same interview, the president admitted that the virus was "more deadly" than “even your strenuous flus” despite his public statements that downplayed the risk of transmission and falsely compared the fatality rates between flu and Covid-19 infections.

The president held six rallies between that interview and 2 March. He cancelled an event in Wisconsin scheduled for 19 March.

He told Mr Woodward on 19 March that he “wanted to always play it down.”

"I still like playing it down, because I don't want to create a panic," he said.

The president reignited his campaign with a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on 20 June. Moments before the event, the campaign announced that six staffers had tested positive for the virus and were isolated.

Health officials there linked a significant spike in infections to the rally and related events.

Few attendees at a campaign rally in Minden, Nevada on 12 September wore masks.

His rally was initially scheduled for Reno, but it was moved following warnings from the Reno Tahoe Airport Authority that a rally for 5,000 people in a private hangar would be in violation of the state’s current restrictions amid the pandemic. It also reportedly violated the terms of the company’s lease for the private hangar.

Nevada currently remains in Phase 2 of its reopening plan, limiting public and private gatherings to 50 people.

The state also requires residents wear face coverings when they are out in public and at public venues.

More than 193,000 Americans have died from Covid-19-related illness, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

POTUS managed to tweet/retweet 70 times yesterday. Doesn't he have some sort of job he's meant to be doing or something?

I hate sharing shit like this but its pretty much fucking true

Quote:
The question was posed, “Why do people continue supporting Trump no matter what he does?” A lady named Bev answered it this way:
“You all don't get it. I live in Trump country, in the Ozarks in southern Missouri, one of the last places where the KKK still has a relatively strong established presence.
They don't give a shit what he does. He's just something to rally around and hate liberals, that's it, period.
He absolutely realizes that and plays it up. They love it. He knows they love it.
The fact that people act like it's anything other than that proves to them that liberals are idiots, all the more reason for high fives all around.
If you keep getting caught up in "why do they not realize this problem" and "how can they still back Trump after this scandal," then you do not understand what the underlying motivating factor of his support is. It's fuck liberals, that's pretty much it.
Have you noticed he can do pretty much anything imaginable, and they'll explain some way that rationalizes it that makes zero logical sense?
Because they're not even keeping track of any coherent narrative, it's irrelevant. Fuck liberals is the only relevant thing.
Trust me; I know firsthand what I'm talking about.
That's why they just laugh at it all because you all don't even realize they truly don't give a fuck about whatever the conversation is about.
It's just a side mission story that doesn't matter anyway.
That's all just trivial details - the economy, health care, whatever.
Fuck liberals.
Look at the issue with not wearing the masks.
I can tell you what that's about. It's about exposing fear. They're playing chicken with nature, and whoever flinches just moved down their internal pecking order, one step closer to being a liberal.
You've got to understand the one core value that they hold above all others is hatred for what they consider weakness because that's what they believe strength is, hatred of weakness.
And I mean passionate, sadistic hatred.
And I'm not exaggerating. Believe me.
Sadistic, passionate hatred, and that's what proves they're strong, their passionate hatred for weakness.
Sometimes they will lump vulnerability in with weakness.
They do that because people tend to start humbling themselves when they're in some compromising or overwhelming circumstance, and to them, that's an obvious sign of weakness.
Kindness = weakness. Honesty = weakness.
Compromise = weakness.
They consider their very existence to be superior in every way to anyone who doesn't hate weakness as much as they do.
They consider liberals to be weak people that are inferior, almost a different species, and the fact that liberals are so weak is why they have to unite in large numbers, which they find disgusting, but it's that disgust that is a true expression of their natural superiority.
Go ahead and try to have a logical, rational conversation with them. Just keep in mind what I said here and be forewarned.”

Sam Hyde speaks for no one other than 12 extremely online millenials, but I kinda liked the ring of this take by reactionaries/ conservatives on the far left:
