Trump's Arizona trip takes him to coronavirus hot spot

PHOENIX (AP) — President Donald Trump’s latest campaign stops Tuesday will take him to one of the nation’s biggest hot spots for the coronavirus outbreak.

With cases soaring in Arizona and hospitals growing increasingly crowded with COVID-19 patients, the state has become a leading battleground in the politically charged debate about mask-wearing, which the president has fanned.

Trump is scheduled to visit Yuma to look at the border wall he’s championed before flying to Phoenix to speak at a “Students for Trump” rally. Both cities and counties he’ll visit have ordered people to wear masks in public — a step the president has resisted, even while touring a mask factory during his last stop in Arizona on May 5.

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, a Democrat, said Monday she doesn’t think the president can safely hold his planned event in her city, and called on him to wear a mask.

“Everyone attending tomorrow’s event, particularly any elected official, should set an example to residents by wearing a mask,” Gallego said in a statement. “This includes the President.”

2. Gee Tim

How will you feel when your daughter's beautiful smile is blocked by a ventilator when she gets sick?

How will she feel when her Dad is zipped up in a body bag?

How will her Mom feel when her family is wiped out?

All for a stupid red hat.

5. Oh my!



I have anxiety about never seeing my two daughters again. Thankfully, we are all following the rules, but you never know.

To CHOOSE to flout the medical guidelines is stunning.

3. They have a bleach mist in the building keeping everyone safe.

They have portable lights to swallow if people want it?

6. What could go wrong?

Between heat exhaustion and Corona virus it will be a cluster “F”.

Waiting for 5 hours in 100+ degree weather would be miserable. I was there last year when it was 110 degrees one day and it was too damn hot and I got headaches.

9. It's supposed to be 110 today

So much for the moron's prediction that the warmer weather will make the virus go away.

Supposedly they're letting people into the 3,000 seat church now to wait. They'll be cooler, but definitely not safer inside.

13. Maybe their new air treatment system was to take the roof off?

Turn on the heater?

Maybe part of their deal with the devil when Trump was elected was for direct access to hell's heat for their auditorium?

11. Worked on a Clean Room Job

 

for a Electronics Firm in the Twin Cities. Believe the Freight was in the 100k ticket price in 1985 dollars and the finished air quality was some where in the high ninety per cent at something like 4000 microns.

Believe most Bio Spores are one hell of a lot less is size.

12. 110 degrees?

Well, you know, with the warmer weather, it just magically goes away.

No worries!

14. Magically our numbers have been skyrocketing

Despite multiple days over 105 degrees already. 110 forecasted for this afternoon in Phoenix.
