The coronavirus is on the retreat and it is ‘make America great again’ season. Social distancing is a thing of the past in a nation that’s ‘pretty cool’ with a knee-jerk abandonment of COVID-19 hysteria for mass protests, rioting, and looting. But how dare president Trump imperil public health by holding MAGA rallies to build the country up rather than tearing it down.
The same Democrats that have cheered on the Black Lives Matter protests…
Are now saying Trump’s rally poses a “coronavirus risk.”
Please shut up 🤣

Ticket sales for Trump’s first post-corona MAGA rally selling out fast
Interest in participating in Trump’s first rally in post-corona America has been fierce. By Friday, Trump’s campaign team had tallied that over 300,000 people had applied to participate in the Trump MAGA rally planned for Tulsa’s BOK Center on June 20. The event was reseschuled from the 19th, to leave that day open as the national day to commemorate abolition.

“Trump #MAGA Rally in Tulsa is hottest ticket ever! Over 200K tickets already & it’s not even political season. Looking at a 2nd event in town to get more people to be w/@realDonaldTrump. Gonna be GREAT in the most open state in nation!” Trump campaign official Brad Parscale tweeted. He later acknowledged that he had low-balled the figures.
To purchase a ticket to the rally, attendees are required to sign a waiver stating that they will not hold the Trump campaign, the BOK Center, or anyone else involved with the event legally responsible if they happen to catch coronavirus at the rally. What can you do, this is a litigious nation.
The disclaimer reads that “By clicking register below, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By attending the Rally, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; BOK Center; ASM Global; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers liable for any illness or injury.”
Oklahoma plans to set an example for the nation
The Republican governor of Oklahoma, Kevin Stitt, has said that Oklahoma can serve as an example to the nation to reopen safely amid new surges of COVID-19.
Stitt announced that, “We are honored President Trump accepted our invitation to our great state. The President is making Oklahoma his first campaign stop since March 2, and his visit here confirms Oklahoma is the national example in responsibly and safely reopening.”
In related news, in the Georgia primary, President Trump received over 100,000 more votes than the presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden. Both men are running effectively unopposed for their respective party’s nomination.
