If I went to a Trump rally and got Covid-19 afterward, I would definitely be upset at the nearest 5G tower.

So who's going to be the asshole who knows they have it and shows up to the rally to spread it around? Maybe if they cough hard enough, they'll be in spit range of Trump?

If my MAGA friends attend the Phoenix rally, I'll be self-isolating from them for at least 2 weeks afterward. I'll be curious to see if they wear masks at the rally... since they refuse to wear masks locally.

You guys are so overreacting to this. Only 1-2% of them are going to die from this. What was the margin of victory in the 2016 election?

Weren't you the one that said that masks were highly discouraged and you didn't even think they'd let anyone in if they wore a mask?

Also I hate to ask but are people in Arizona really not terrified right now? My neighbor went up for the three day weekend, said nobody was wearing masks and people were all over the place, and the ICUs are like 90% right now (I am keeping social distance from my neighbor).

I have no idea how wearing a mask became a sign of weakness but here we are.

What a piece of shit!



Gee, it’s almost like the House could’ve expanded their inquiry to include other countries if someone freaking told them about them in the first place.
Fuck you Bolton, you neoconservative half walrus motherfucker!

What an odd story.

But does anyone really think the Senate would have done anything even with more evidence and other countries involved?

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I always figured she never supported him actually running for and being president and never wanted to be First Lady, and this just clinches it - pretty sure she's divorcing his ass the second he's out of the White House.


She was probably all "you don't want a new elected president going through a divorce, do you? So I'll stick with you through this bullshit if you give me something for it."

Nope. Because they're all just as bad as Trump. Compliant and complicit. They're just as bad as Trump. And their voters and supporters are a direct reflection the politicians they vote for.

The more this goes on, the less I believe any of these people can be separated from Trump. They seem to fit into three categories - fully supportive ("I'm a 4chan troll just like Trump"), contrarian ("Trump is a terrible person, but I'll vote for him when it's time"), and quietly supportive ("for the greater good of the GOP").

Have a feeling Melania's going to be about as loyal as Derek Chauvin's beauty queen wife. As soon as the shit comes down, she'll be filing for the big D.

Agreed.

Watch the sprint (from some) to distance themselves from Trump as soon as he's out of office.

"I have been strongly opposed to many of Donald Trump's policies, statements, and actions"

"Why didn't you say something while he was in office?"

"I'm sorry, I'm late for a meeting ..."

No the answer to that question will be

"I don't feel it's appropriate to undermine a sitting president"

Before laying into whatever President Biden did that day.

Yep, more then likely. Then she’ll have to take every STD test to see what luggage she’ll be taking with her.

Probably go back to Slovenia and become a huge TV star. Good Riddance.

The MAGA crowd will suddenly hate her guts because without Trump she's just another gold digging foreigner.

Im curious to see the physical arrangement for the rally. As much as they are discouraging masks, I have no doubt Trump wont be anywhere near the crowd. I figure the stage will be set up on a way where Trump is effectively distanced from everyone else. He wont want it to be obvious otherwise hed look like the Pope driving through Rome.

Id be surprised if he has anyone appear on stage with him but if he does, they will have been carefully selected, will have to take a COVID test backstage beforehand, and will be forced to sign a NDA about the whole thing.

Yes. But I also know that it is one thing to act with bravado in a community that has minimal infection and another thing to do it from a hotspot. That is why I'd be curious to see what happens at these rallies regarding mask usage.

It's a mixed bag here in AZ. Generally, those who have education beyond high school are taking this seriously, wearing masks, and avoiding unnecessary contact with others.

It also depends upon what part of the state one is talking about. Maricopa is a hotspot. Yuma is too. Yavapai country really hasn't had many cases yet. The MAGA parts of the state are not concerned at all. Trixie and I live in MAGA-central.
