Nevada Trump super-spreader rally
« on: September 14, 2020, 05:14:22 PM »
The president and his deputy have had a weekend of helping spread the coronavirus around America. On Saturday, Trump hosted an indoor rally at the Xtreme Manufacturing plant with no social distancing and very few people wearing masks, in breach of the state law limiting gatherings to 50 people. There was even an overflow crowd who were outside - probably a safer place to be than inside the stadium.

The Trump campaign estimated that the audience was about 5,000 people, in addition to crowds assembled outside, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

According to the Associated Press:

Eager to project a sense of normalcy in imagery, Trump soaked up the raucous cheers inside a warehouse. Relatively few in the crowd wore masks, with one clear exception: Those in the stands directly behind Trump, whose images would end up on TV, were mandated to wear face coverings.

On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence held a campaign rally inside in a conference room at a Janesville, Wisconsin, Holiday Inn. Attendees were spaced out a few feet, but most did not wear masks. At least 40 in the room.
