Democrats Say Trump Rallies Pose Coronavirus Risk, Days After Cheering BLM Protests

Democrats display hypocrisy in the wake of anti-police demonstrations

Top Democrats have blasted President Donald Trump for his decision to restart his campaign rallies, saying the events could spread the coronavirus.

But the Democrats accusations come just days after their continued support for the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, which saw many attendees not practicing any sort of social distancing.

Democrat governors who imposed draconian lockdown measures on citizens mysteriously eased their orders for anti-police demonstrations in the wake of George Floyd's death.

U.S. Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., on Monday said she had joined a "Healing and Hope" rally.

The Florida Democrat said she wanted "to speak with our community as America grieves."

"The president’s plan to hold mass rallies in Florida and elsewhere as we experience a resurgence in COVID cases is irresponsible and selfish," Demings remarked.

Another example of hypocrisy came from Bernie Sanders.

In April Bernie Sanders of Vermont tweeted:

"Congratulations to all who are out on the streets today, peacefully protesting. Together, we will end police brutality.

"Together, we will defeat Trump. Together, we will fight for a government based on justice and compassion, not greed and lies."

By Thursday, Sanders had changed his tune:

"Trump wants 15,000 delegates cheering him at his GOP convention in Florida," the former presidential candidate said.

"No social distancing. His rejection of medical advice endangers not only those there but those they come in contact with. Trump's a threat to the health and well-being of the country. He must be defeated."

On Thursday, Trump announced that his 2020 campaign rallies would be "starting up again soon" in multiple states, saying there's "big demand."

The president said his "Keep America Great" campaign events could resume as early as "next week."

Trump’s raucous rallies draw tens of thousands of people, but due to the pandemic and later because of racial strife, the president hasn’t held one since March 2.

“We’re going to start our rallies back up now,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Wednesday.

“We’ve had a tremendous run at rallies. … It’s been an amazing thing to behold.”
