Social Distancing Stickers REMOVED Before Rally

From the Washington Post:

 

In the hours before his rally in Tulsa, President Trump’s campaign directed the removal of thousands of “Do Not Sit Here, Please!” stickers from seats in the arena that were intended to establish social distance between rallygoers, according to video and photos obtained by The Washington Post and a person familiar with the event.

 

The removal contradicted instructions from the management of the BOK Center, the 19,000-seat arena in downtown Tulsa where Trump held his rally on June 20. At the time, coronavirus cases were rising sharply in Tulsa County, and Trump faced intense criticism for convening a large crowd for an indoor political rally, his first such event since the start of the pandemic.

 

As part of its safety plan, arena management had purchased 12,000 do-not-sit stickers for Trump’s rally, intended to keep people apart by leaving open seats between attendees. On the day of the rally, event staff had already affixed them on nearly every other seat in the arena when Trump’s campaign told event management to stop and then began removing the stickers, hours before the president’s arrival, according to a person familiar with the event who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters.

I am so incredulous, I can't even comment on this.

Geez, seems like yesterday Pence was saying ignore the social distancing guidelines and mask as we had reach a plateau.

 

Yet, today his bus campaign is postponed as Coronavirus infections skyrocket.

 

Practically choked on my coffee, as I watched the news, fastest turn-around in history of TP🤣.

 

TP= t/pence not toilet paper, although🤣

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

The T/P campaign.  I like that acronym, especially since it is going down the  🚽.

 

Imagine that, Pence postponing events in AZ and FL.  Gee, I can't figure out why Mikey would feel so paranoid. 🤔

 

It seems like his boss has retreated to his sterile bubble, even canceling his NJ golf outing this weekend.  Oh, that's right.  He wants to monitor the hordes of rapists and murderers attacking DC this weekend.  🙄

I wonder what was spent on this trip?  That could have purchased an awful lot of test kits and/or masks.
