Trump campaign scraps rally ahead of Sessions-Tuberville primary amid pandemic

Source: CNN

(CNN) President Donald Trump's campaign has scrapped plans to hold a rally in Alabama next weekend amid concerns about coronavirus infections rising in the US, CNN has learned.

Trump was slated to travel to the state ahead of the Senate race between his former attorney general Jeff Sessions and the former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, but plans were called off as state officials voiced concerns about a mass gathering and campaign officials ultimately decided against it. A person close to the campaign said there are currently no rallies on the horizon, but aides are scoping out possible venues for when they decide to host them again.

We don't ever confirm where we're looking until a rally date and location are announced. There is always work underway to identify sites," said Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the Trump campaign.

6. Gonna put on my tinfoil hat here

for a quick second. SCOTUS has nothing further scheduled for the rest of this week (at least the last time I looked). That means that a decision on Trump's taxes could well come down next week.

Here's the tinfoil-ey part.....SCOTUS is gonna rule against him, and Justice Boofster (Kavanaugh) tipped Trump off that his tax returns are going to have be handed over to Congress and/or the New York State AG.

5. Install that special ventilation system that makes the place safe.

Install that special ventilation system that makes the place safe.

Of course you still have to sign a waiver.

8. He clearly needs new campaign officials..

The current ones have obviously been sucked in by fake news from the far left socialist democrat libtard feminist globalist PC snowflake atheist commie pro-abortion mainstream press. When your Dear Leader says, "It's going to disappear", and he wants to have a worship fest for his cult, then YOU DON'T CANCEL THEM, got it?

I LOL'd over your description of reality based people, except think you have used lamestreet fake news instead of mainstream press, would have sounded more like "them"..

12. He should book a cruise ship especially for rallies, and sail it from port to port, holding all his

rallies on board for the rest of the campaign season.
