Ask Not What President Trump Can Do for You

His made-for-TV rallies can be matters of life and death.

Once again, President Trump is taking heat for treating the presidency like a branding exercise.

This time, instead of brandishing a Bible he doesnít read next to a church he doesnít attend, the president is resuming huge, made-for-TV campaign rallies. The first is set for Saturday in Tulsa, Okla. It will take place in a 19,000-seat arena that, in deference to the coronavirus pandemic thatís still raging, had canceled all other events through the end of July.

For Trumpís triumphal return, his campaign has decided that no social distancing is required. He wants this to be a spectacle, packed with as much noisy adoration as possible.

But whatever risks those attending might incur, Team Trump is taking steps to ensure that it bears none. All rally attendees must sign a liability waiver holding the campaign legally blameless in the event that people subsequently fall sick. Or drop dead.

1. I know what he can do for me.

Go fuck himself with Trump Tower.

Sideways.

2. Odds are, with the horde of unmasked screaming and shouting Trump followers inside that arena,

there will be a spike in coronavirus infections. One can only hope the Super Spreader himself comes down with it.
