The virus can't kill enough people to make a difference.  Ok will go for trump no matter what. However a good dose of karma would brighten my day.

I feel bad for the employees of the venue who will be exposed.
I feel bad for the innocent people who do not attend yet are exposed peripherally by someone who did.
I feel bad for the healthcare workers who will be forced to deal with the spike.

I hope the willing attendees all come down with an extreme case of Covid-19.

Maybe those people will be smart enough to wear masks, but it is Oklahoma.

well now, then my new greatest hope is that a maskless trump, shouting and screaming for hours, in an enclosed (though giant) space, with 19,000 other maskless shouting, screaming, cheering friends will catch it. and just him, i'm not greedy.

and due to his advanced age, and general other risk factors (obesity, i'd put money on high blood pressure, etc.), he ends up on a vent and congress MUST use the 26th, he may be unconscious for a month! and awake with brain damage, needing MONTHS to relearn things like walking and talking. or he just croaks outright, whichever the universe has in the cards i'm cool with.

Those attending the rally are not only betting their own life on the myth of Trump's greatness, but also the lives of their family and friends. And that is criminal.

Oklahoma, along with Alabama, SC, and Arizona should be decertified as states because the Government there isn't doing shiat to protect their citizens. Also you could argue the same with Fla., Texas, and Arkansas.
These states have been dumbing down their citizenry for 30+ years, and now they are killing them with depraved indifference.

They're going to drive to Tulsa, contract the disease, and then drive back to their town which is two hours from the nearest hospital.

Someone has to get us to herd immunity. It might as well be Republicans.
 
2020-06-18 8:28:43 AM  
Don't care anymore.  Pack 'em in.  Don't let them wear masks.  Encourage them to do a bunch of screaming and shouting around each other.  Let them infect their friends and family.  I'm tired of trying to convince people not to kill themselves and others like this.

If you are friends or family with idiots that would go to something like this, be extra vigilant and tell them to stay the fark away from you.

We have the rally, BLM protests, and a gun show this weekend. What could possibly go wrong?

I'm hearing reports of some businesses starting to board up windows, although I have not been downtown to confirm.

I'll be staying well away from Tulsa this weekend.

This.

I wonder if the venue is a union venue. They are just releasing white papers in the entertainment industry about returning to work with no date yet. They won't be able to hire non-union people and they're required to provide a safe working environment.

If all the employees and press wore hazmat suits and full-oxygen ventilators like they do in CDC labs, they would be safe... and they'd send donnie* a powerful message.

Also imagine the flood of trump*ers outside that don't get in, just milling about without masks and not social distancing, buying made-in-China trump* merchandise.

Hopefully, someone's setting up contact tracing-Who am I kidding?

No please proceed. and no need for masks. be sure to smoke a bunch before going so the cough is locked and loaded. perhaps even blow bubbles over the crowd

sorry. not the way it works. without a vaccine "herd immunity" is the native americans after smallpox: everyone who possibly could got it. lots died. the rare survivors now form "an immune herd."

a vaccine is what lets us skip the "lots died" stage.

and we don't have one.

I've been thinking the same thing. He always has to be the victim, so he's been pulling out the stops to act as outrageously stupidly as possible, in the hopes someone will put their feet down. But after three and a half years, everyone is onto him and are letting him drift away on an ice floe. I think Democrats are probably more interested in keeping Trump alive than Republicans at this point.
 
2020-06-18 8:52:12 AM  
Trump will probably be kept 20 feet away from anybody attending that rally.

His protection detail, on the other hand, will have to get right up to the crowds at various times.  Then they get right onto AF1 and continue to surround Trump.

And the quick-turnaround tests are only about 80% accurate.  So...I like those odds.

If someone would spray that entire arena, when full, with that invisible dye that shows up under a black light, it may help health professionals know they are dealing with a moron.

I'm not saying they deny care but the medical staff could remind them how dumb they are on a constant basis.

I have been listening to public meetings on opening the Uni I work for in the fall.  The administration's talk always assume two possible outcomes with COVID-19: nothing happens or you're dead.  Since students have "near 0 risk" then it's perfectly safe for the students.  When asked about those morbidities, like healthy young people losing 1/2 of the lung capacity for life, losing limbs due to clots, liver damage, etc.. they just go on to the next subject.  No plan on what to do when some young student gets maimed, and statistically there WILL be someone that gets hurt.  They will probably just be on their own.

So, yeah... fall is going to be a horrible time.

Good luck, Oklahoma. Thanks for Shirley Jones.

That nearly 100% increase in new cases yesterday is probably just Great Again-ishness.

First he goes through months of painful and agonizing rehabilitation. Then when he is just about to walk on his own for the first time he keels over and dies, never getting to enjoy the fruits of his hard work.

It never sees them. It has never read anything on Twitter in its life. It has never even seen a Twitter page on a screen. Anything it has seen from Twitter (only positive stuff) was printed out by a staffer, just like it is staffers who type its Tweets in and post them. It is incapable of operating any device more complicated than a dial phone, and I'm not sure it can even handle that, considering how it tries to drink a glass of water.
