Bernie Sanders rips Trump for upcoming rally

Avatar

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) says that President Donald Trump is risking public health simply to hear cheers from his supporters at an upcoming Oklahoma rally.

“I find it literally incomprehensible that the president, who is an extraordinary narcissist, is willing to sacrifice the health not only of the people who attend his indoor rally, but those people who come into contact with the people who attend the indoor rally,” said Sanders.

The Trump campaign is moving forward with the Saturday rally and plans to hand out free masks and hand sanitizer to all attendees. More than one million people attempted to get tickets to the event.

“As in any event you assume a personal risk. That is just what you do. When you go to a baseball game, you assume a risk. That’s part of life. It’s a personal decision of Americans as to whether to go to the rally or whether not to go to the rally,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Wednesday.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) has encouraged the Trump campaign to consider an outdoor venue that would better accommodate a large crowd and allow for social distancing. Tulsa’s health department director, Dr. Bruce Dart, is hoping the Trump campaign will postpone the rally. Dart says that large indoor gatherings are not safe at a time when coronavirus cases are still climbing in Oklahoma. The state has seen increases in the number of infections since May.

“You have public officials in Oklahoma begging him not to do this rally. It is in defiance of what science is telling us is appropriate. And the leader of the United States government is defying science in order to hear cheers from his supporters,” Sanders said. “It is incredibly irresponsible.”

Sanders is also known for being able to draw large crowds and has said he will hit the campaign trail for Vice President Joe Biden to help him energize the progressive base. He says as much as he’d love to get back to campaigning, now isn’t the right time.

“Right now, at this moment we’re seeing an increase in cases in some 20-plus states around the country, so I would think you’d want to, before you did anything, you would be wanting to listen to the doctors and the scientists,” he said. “It’s hard for me to imagine anybody holding rallies indoors.”

Trump has called out Biden for not holding more public events as the pandemic continues. The former Vice President has been mainly campaigning from his Delaware home, a move, some believe, might actually be helping the Democratic nominee.

    Go stand in a bread line Bernie. You said nothing about rioters and protesters risking others health. Those who attend a Trump rally are FREE to make their own choices. Better to live free and die than live under a communists rule!!!

    Why because it’ll force “dugout Biden” to hold rallies and later participate in debates with Trump. Sleepy Joe isn’t too swift on his feet, able to read off a teleprompter and if prone to lashing out at those who question his “judgement”. Dementia + Bipolar disorder is not a good combination. Man needs help.

    Hey Sen. Bernie’Feel the Bern’Sanders(D-VT), I don’t recall hearing anything from you during one of the recent BLM rallies that occurred; you know the ones that observed no social distancing or pretty much none of the other CDC recommendations.
    Hello Bernie, Hello? Crickets………..

    Just look at this man’s face and you realize that he is insane, a mentally sick guy! Second, how in the world (except that he is crazy) can he be so hypocritical, when thousands demonstrated, rioted, looted, but he said nothing! Sorry, but the whole Democratic Party is made of lunatics Bolsheviks, who want to take the power and install the dictatorship of the anti-Christ! Patriots, watch out, we can say for this November “our Republic or the most cruel dictatorship, in which Stalin, Hitler and Mao would look like angels”!
