Trump's risky rallies are straight out of 'Hunger Games'

Dean Obeidallah writes that Donald Trump's continued flouting at his campaign rallies of measures enacted to keep people safe from the coronavirus is irresponsible and "borders on sinister" given his comments that he has known about the dangers of the virus for months. "If Trump isn't concerned with whether his supporters get Covid-19, why would anyone believe he cares about the 51% of Americans who don't support him getting sick?"

(CNN)Welcome to Donald Trump's "Covid Hunger Games: Campaign edition. " That's the only way to describe Trump's continued flouting at his campaign rallies of measures enacted to keep people safe from the coronavirus.

Earlier in the week, Trump held a rally in North Carolina that again ignored statewide social distancing mandates of limiting gatherings to 50 people and wearing masks.

Add to that, Trump must be aware that after his Tulsa campaign rally in late June, there was a spike in Covid-19 cases in the Tulsa area that local health officials believed was linked to his event.

In this case it means holding large campaign rallies that violate Covid-19 safety measures simply because Trump believes that could help him win reelection — even if it means more of his supporters are exposed to a virus that he knows is "deadly stuff. "
