MADE MY DAY !!!! "White Lives Matter' rallies flop"

Saw an NBC news story presented on my Yahoo feed 'White Lives Matter' rallies flop as hardly anyone shows up.   What the title does...

Another Day, Another Trump rally. What Could Go Wrong?

I stood like this, ma. *boxers stance* But not for long.   Curly Howard I give up. I mean, we are truly crossing the line into the theater of the absurd. Even mental institutions will only catch a patient banging his head off a wall so many times before they move him to a room with nice soft padding. If all goes well(?) it looks like Saturday it’s Portsmouth New Hampshire’s turn in the barrel. After a couple of weeks of screaming, crying, and pouting about the abysmal performance and crowd at the Tulsa rally, Trump is climbing back in the saddle and galloping off to whack his head on another low hanging branch. First, a quick review. A couple of weeks ago, His Lowness held a pathetic excuse for a rally in coronavirus swept Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was slammed for the gathering in a closed venue, no masks, and a lack of social distancing, even though each person could have had their own row. He got hit harder when video showed event employees trying to move people closer together to make the crowd look larger for the cameras. The size of the spike Trump created at this circus buffet is unknown, it’ll take another week or so for those numbers. A couple of days later, Trump packs another 3500 young supporters (The Twitler Youth?) into a mega church in Phoenix, being as badly hammered as Tulsa, for an hour and a half. Again, slammed for no masks, and packing them in like sardines. Again we will have to wait for concrete numbers on the damage assessment for that rally to properly assess blame. But never let it be said that the Trump campaign is incapable of learning from past stupid mistakes. They did, so now they’re setting out to make a brand new, fresh, stupid mistake. Saturday’s rally is scheduled to be held at an open airport hanger. Masks will be handed out to attendees, and the campaign says that this time they’ll  be encouraged to use them. The rationale is obvious. By using an open venue, the campaign is hoping to stifle criticism for packing people together into enclosed places. The problem is that it’s a stupid idea, and it won’t work. First of all, the hanger is open on two sides, with two walls, and a roof, so already you’re cutting the air circulation capacity. And second, they won’t be able to practice social distancing, since the hangar will likely hold less than 5000 people, and if you set them up 6 feet apart, the crowd wouldn’t be worth the effort. The campaign is trying to reap the benefits of an outdoor gathering without taking the necessary steps to ensure personal safety. Outdoor gatherings are safer than indoor gatherings, but only when the rules are followed! Family units in a park or beach can sit together, but should still be maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet on all sides from outsiders. But the Trump campaign is going to jam them cheek-to-jowl together in that hanger, and claim it’s safe because it’s being held outside. The Trump campaign is going to catch shit for this stunt, simply because there has already been public pushback against it. The Mayor of Miami Beach closed the beaches for the holiday weekend specifically because it was impossible to […]
