Georgia State Rep Vernon Jones decided that a pandemic wasn't going to stop him from crowd-surfing at a Trump rally in Macon.
The sights were... strange, to say the least.
Trump rallies have become a serious talking point.During a global pandemic, you would think rallies with thousands upon thousands of people would be avoided, but not Trump ones.
Herds of people flock to the events to catch a glimpse of their hero.Yeah, for some reason, they want to see Donald Trump in the flesh.
Of course, the election is soon so Joe Biden is also out doing the rounds.But his have been slightly (only slightly) safer as there was some social distancing.
But the folks at Trump rallies really don't know what social distancing is.The events also seem to contain some strange sights...
Have you ever wondered how exactly the President of the United States would dance along to the Village People's hit, "YMCA?"I know, it sounds like a crudely edited meme you'd find in the depths of Twitter binge, doesn't it?
Well, you would be mistaken.It actually happened.
But the most recent incident has to be the strangest we've seen so far.Georgia state rep. Vernon Jones decided he was going to crowd surf amongst supporters in Macon.
The pictures were a little disturbing...Actually, that's an understatement; they were very disturbing.
But what else would you expect from followers of a man who said the global pandemic was nothing but a sham?Until he got infected with it himself, but he lived to tell the tale... And downplay the virus of course.
Remember when the President tweeted this?"I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!"
Now, telling a country to not be afraid of a virus that has killed over 200,000 Americans is an extremely reckless thing to say...
And, of course, people were not happy with his choice of announcement, considering thousands of Americans losing loved ones to the disease.
@realDonaldTrump Tell that to the 220,000 people who died from #COVID19 #OnYourWatch and their families @POTUS— Greg Rickard (@Greg Rickard)1601969132.0
It's vital for the president to stop downplaying the virus.And to stop referring to it as a "blessing in disguise."
Clearly, he is under the impression that he holds some sort of "immunity."During a phone call with Fox Business on Thursday morning, the President revealed some details about his health, including the fact that he's a "perfect physical specimen..." and is now "immune" to coronavirus.
And, when he was asked if other people would get the treatments he got while recovering, he said this:“Yeah, they’re going to get it. I’m back because I am a perfect physical specimen and I'm extremely young, and so I am lucky in that way." Young?
Anyway, the immunity factor still remains uncertain.Scientists have not yet confirmed if this is the case, though they are hoping that it's true.
Because despite the blatant lack of scientific evidence...Trump is evidently so wrapped up and convinced by his claims of immunity that he decided it is time to start hosting very public events again.
A few weeks ago, an event at the White House quickly turned into a full-blown rally.The event was officially a "peaceful protest", but looked, critics said, much like a Trump campaign rally.
The turn-out was shocking.Around 2,000 Trump supporters descended upon the White House to hear the president's speech, where he made yet more inflammatory claims about the virus.
But he wasn't finished there.The president has already hosted rallies in Florida and Pennsylvania.
The most memorable moment to come out of them was his horrendous dad dancing...
At least he's brought some laughter to our lives...
Trump dancing to YMCA. Enjoy. https://t.co/eHQyfMCKxo— Brandon Darby (@Brandon Darby)1602558530.0
But now, another moment has stolen the spotlight from the president.
For those of you that don't know, Jones is a Democrat that endorses Trump...
The state rep decided that a global pandemic was not going to stop him from throwing his body into a crowd of supporters.
But the pictures from the event have left everyone appalled...
