Heat at Trump rally sends a dozen attendees to the hospital

Source: NBC News

A crowded Trump rally in steamy Tampa, Florida, on Thursday resulted in 17 attendees needing medical attention, with a dozen being taken to the hospital, fire officials told NBC News.

Trump spoke for just under an hour in 87-degree heat at the event outside of Raymond James Stadium to a largely mask-less group of supporters.

A fire truck at the rear of the rally sprayed water in the air to rain down on some rallygoers, but the heat was too much for some attendees, many of whom had been waiting for hours. Tampa Fire Rescue said one of the attendees fainted and another had a seizure. The other 10 who were taken to the hospital were just listed as "sick" with no other details.

The incident came two days after 30 rallygoers in Omaha, Nebraska, needed medical attention after transportation issues resulted in hundreds of attendees being stuck for hours in the freezing cold. Officials said seven were taken to area hospitals with a variety of ailments.

3. Well, if you can't freeze 'em, can't infect them, then cook 'em!

Sorry... I do feel bad for these people, even while I have nothing but contempt for their political views and thinking process.

27. He's not exactly what one would call "healthy".

In fact he's like the exact opposite of what a healthy person at that age should look like.

10. In Trump's mind they owe it to him to take whatever he dishes out and

to worship him and grovel at his feet and beg for more.

16. Freezes them in Omaha yesterday, cooks them in Tampa today. What's next?

Burn them up in wildfires in Orange County?

Strand them in the wet and dark in Atlanta?

Drown them in another boat parade?

21. Maybe one of those beautiful, clean coal mines? They're not being used anyway...

Bonus, not a lot of fresh air, so the Covid really spreads efficiently.

Good lord, who the fuck are these idiot supporters?

25. I'm thinking they don't know

about the freezing in Omaha. Fox would never report that. If they knew about that, and now this, you would have to wonder if they see a pattern here. He is trying to kill them. But...Omaha people don't know about Tampa people, and vice versa. We still have to wonder what the hell is wrong with those people?

32. Nice that there was a fire truck spraying a bit of relief.

Most of the attendees should have known that it gets hot in Florida. I'm sure some of the smarter attendees (there might have been some) waited for a while, then went home to the comfort of air conditioning.

I wonder if the Trump campaign supplied bottles of water and had sufficient port-a-potties rented for the event.
