Trump plans big Wisconsin rallies despite White House task force calling for 'maximal' social distan

Source: Washington Post

President Trump has scheduled large campaign rallies this weekend in Wisconsin despite recommendations from the White House Coronavirus Task Force that call for increasing social distancing in the state “to the maximal degree possible.”

The task force has further flagged La Crosse and Green Bay, the metropolitan areas where Trump plans to gather thousands of supporters Saturday, as coronavirus “red zones,” the highest level of concern for community spread of the virus, according to a report from the group released Sunday and obtained by The Washington Post.

Wisconsin is listed in the document as the state with the third-highest rate of new cases in the country, with 243 new cases per 100,000 people over the previous week, about 2.6 times greater than the national average. Ahead of Trump’s scheduled rally in Green Bay, the Bellin Health System said Tuesday that its hospital in that city is at 94 percent capacity as covid-19 continues to spike in the community.

In addition to the White House task force’s guidance, local concern has been growing in Wisconsin about Trump’s planned events, which are scheduled for outdoor airplane hangars without universal mask mandates. Gov. Tony Evers (D) said Tuesday in a news briefing that Trump should either cancel the events or require mask-wearing by everyone who attends.

Trump:
“We don’t call these ‘rallies’ anymore, because in Dem states like where you have a governor who’s a Democrat, you’re not allowed to go to church and not allowed to go to a restaurant. You’re not allowed to go to your friend’s house. You can’t move from your house unless you’re related to the governor,” he said at a rally in Newport News, Va., on Friday.

2. Donald:

You are cordially invited to have as many superspreader rallies in Wisconsin as you please. Your unprotected sects are waiting for you to vomit your best words and to make fun of as many disabled, elderly, and war dead as your Adderall addiction allows in a 90-minute hatefest.

6. If I were the governor, I'd tell Trump's supporters, "Come on out, all of you!"*

* In my next breath, I'd encourage them to bring backpacks with two weeks' worth of food and perhaps sleeping bags, too. Because I'd surround that entire rally area with police and quarantine the whole damn lot of them, Trump included, for 14 days.

Modern-day problems require modern-day solutions.

Thanks to the Wisconsin Supreme Court which has pretty much tied Evers' hands.

and thanks to these precious fucking idiots:

9. He claimed no one's suffered because of his rallies. Let's ask Herman Cain about that.

Oh, right. He died of Covid-19 because he attended a Trump rally.

10. Herman Cain Tweets Coronavirus Not That Deadly--Despite Having Died From It

It appears that Herman Cain would dispute how deadly COVID-19 is even after he died from it.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2020/08/31/herman-cain-tweets-coronavirus-not-that-deadly-despite-having-died-from-it/#4f59a4553c77

Herman Cain continues to speak from beyond the grave through his Twitter account, with a now-deleted tweet claiming that coronavirus is “not as deadly” as “mainstream media” made it out to be, despite Cain dying from COVID-19 weeks after attending a rally for President Trump—and raising questions about Twitter policies for deceased account holders.

According to screenshots of the tweet, Cain’s account (renamed “The Cain Gang” by his family) wrote on Sunday, “it looks like the virus is not as deadly as the mainstream media first made it out to be.”

The tweet also linked to an article from conservative news site Western Journal, which a New York Times investigation found in 2019 was blacklisted from Apple News for containing views rejected by the larger scientific community and Google News for maintaining deceptive business practices.

Cain’s tweet drew backlash and scorn from other social media users, who pointed out the irony in his Twitter account claiming coronavirus is “not as deadly” even though he died from the virus in July.
