Most participants at Trump’s rally today didn’t wear face masks, which are necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Instead, the crowd was surrounded by massive Trump flags and red “Make America Great Again” hats. The vast majority of attendees were also not wearing face masks, despite the fact that the city is known for its liberal politics. Some even traveled from all over the country to attend the rally. One woman, Tracy Lavis, wore a red Trump flag as a cape. She traveled from Michigan to attend the rally.
Kari Lake attends trump rally
Arizona governor’s race: Embattled GOP candidate Kari Lake recently received endorsement from former President Donald Trump. She’s also been publicly linked to Nazi sympathizers and appears at events alongside figures associated with QAnon, anti-maskers club, and a slew of other controversial causes. But the controversy surrounding Lake has not diminished her popularity — she’s still a cactus-dry prick.
She’s not the only conservative running for governor today: right-wing activist Mary Ann Mendoza also spoke at the event. The mother of a deceased undocumented immigrant promoted a controversial QAnon conspiracy theory. Last year, the GOP kicked her off the speaking lineup because of this, but has since appeared alongside other conservative candidates, including Josh Barnett and Daniel Wood. Whether or not she makes it to the rally is unknown, but she’s certainly making a statement.
Despite her disapproval, Lake is determined to win the race. Despite her cynicism and a lack of political experience, Lake has garnered a loyal base of supporters in the Trump camp. Her supporters laud her for imitating the former president and her willingness to go out of her way to criticize her political opponents. Her campaign’s partisanship is even more disconcerting, as Lake has embraced her opponents’ vitriol to further her candidacy.
Participants don’t wear face masks
While few people are wearing face masks at a Trump rally today, it’s clear the president’s supporters are concerned about the campaign’s crowd optics. Staffers have taken care to remove social distancing stickers from the seats inside the venue. The rally is expected to draw 100,000 people or more, according to Bynum’s order. The Trump campaign also said participants would be invited to a “festival” outside the rally, where Trump may make an appearance.
In the first round of his campaign, the president made a brief appearance wearing a mask, but the vast majority of the audience did not. In an interview with WGN America, Trump blamed the CDC for sending mixed messages about face masks. “We should be encouraging people to wear masks because we want to show that we’re doing our part to prevent the spread of this disease.”
While the number of cases of COVID-19 is rising and hospitalizations are on the rise, the president continues to hold massive rallies. In Nevada, where he has defied the governor’s ban on large gatherings, the crowd was so dense that few people were wearing face masks. The President even mocked former Vice President Joe Biden for wearing a face mask.
Participants yell at each other
Many health officials say that a Trump rally’s crowd size and noise levels pose a threat to public health. Typically, tens of thousands of people attend rallies, which have airport-style security and crowded seating. There’s usually chanting, dancing, and other activities going on, and occasionally, violence is perpetrated by rally participants against protesters. There are also many health risks, particularly for older participants, as well as an increased risk of COVID-19. Many people have to seek medical attention if their temperatures spike during the event.
Some participants yelled obscenities and insulted protesters. Others waved signs supporting Sanders. The crowd was divided in age and politics, with many younger people shouting obscenities and yelling at protesters. Protester Kathy Bower, for instance, has family members who support the president and wants the congressional race in Wyoming to focus on solar power, beekeeping, and gardening instead of politics.
The video contains 2 minutes of the rally, which is sprinkled with profanity. The video was shared on Saturday night and has received more than four million views by Sunday. The Villages is a popular GOP campaign stop, with roughly two-to-one ratio of Republicans to Democrats. The Villages is where Trump gave a speech last fall. In this rally, a man wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat yelled at reporters. The reporter was forced to leave the rally, but was not charged with any crime.
Participants throw insults at each other
On November 14, 2017, a group of angry Trump supporters threw insults at each other at a campaign rally in Washington state. While the crowd was much smaller than the one held on November 14, there were still several thousand attendees. Several protesters were beaten and sprayed with irritants, including pepper spray, while another group smashed equipment, including televisions and video recorders, with sticks and bats.
While antifa was not present at the Capitol, rumors about the group’s involvement began on anonymous online forums after noon. Meanwhile, Rep. Madison Cawthorn and Rep. Paul Gosar claimed the riots were a result of antifa and claimed that antifa was behind them. These theories spread quickly across social media, right-wing radio, and TV, and even several politicians endorsed them.
Participants yell at one another during trump rally
A packed crowd at a Trump rally could supercharge the spread of a virus called coronavirus, according to epidemiologists. Coronavirus can easily spread in crowded, yelling crowds, and a Trump rally in Tulsa will include 19,000 people, with an additional 9,000 seats in an overflow room. Although no deaths have been reported, some epidemiologists fear the rally will increase the risk of the virus spreading to attendees.
Anti-Trump protests have caused an uneasy atmosphere at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. A large group of Oath Keepers and Proud Boys protested outside the convention center before Trump’s speech. Proud Boys, for example, were wearing body armor and military clothing. Some wore their signature yellow and black shirts. But some participants yelled at each other and attacked Trump supporters.
Anti-Trump protesters in Aiken, SC, yelled at a Trump rally. While some shouted “Islam is not the problem,” others yelled at Trump supporters or hurled insults at them. Several protesters were arrested during the confrontation. One woman was pushed through a revolving door by a Trump supporter. Protesters also attacked and smashed a police car.
Participants throw insults at each other during trump rally
A few days ago, tens of thousands of Trump supporters lined up in a long line at the Toyota Center to hear their candidate speak. The rally also featured Cruz, a Republican who is facing a tough reelection fight against Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke. Cruz campaign staffers urged supporters to stick to their guns and vote straight-ticket. Some attendees even wore Trump T-shirts and flags.
While the Trump rally began peacefully enough, protesters and police converged outside the convention center to meet the President. Some Trump supporters clashed with protesters. As a result, police armed with pepper spray and batons formed a barrier between protesters and supporters. Some protesters attempted to scurry through the metal barriers. The police, however, blocked the main entrance of the convention center and pushed protesters back onto the sidewalk.
While some protesters attempted to disrupt Trump’s speech, others remained silent. At one point, a young man wearing a Trump 2020 shirt and shaking his fist in support of the president was mistakenly insulted by the president, who then defended his own actions by saying “Trump is the best thing to happen to our country!”
