Take your chances FOR ‘The Donald ‘!!
Bet your health!
As President Trump moves to resume indoor campaign rallies, his campaign has added a twist to his optimistic push to return to life as it was before the pandemic: Attendees cannot sue the campaign or the venue if they contract the virus at the event.
“By clicking register below, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to Covid-19 exists in any public place where people are present,” a statement on Mr. Trump’s campaign website informed those wishing to attend his June 19 rally in Tulsa, Okla. “By attending the rally, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to Covid-19 and agree not to hold Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; BOK Center; ASM Global; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors or volunteers liable for any illness or injury.”
Mr. Trump’s rally in Tulsa, the site of a massacre of black residents in 1921, will be on Juneteenth, a prominent African-American holiday recognizing the end of slavery in the United States. The rally will also be his first since the pandemic forced most of the country into quarantine three months ago, a campaign official said Wednesday. Polls have shown former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. establishing a substantial lead over Mr. Trump.
Oklahoma, a state Mr. Trump won four years ago by 36 percentage points, began lifting restrictions on businesses on April 24 and moved into Phase 3 of its reopening on June 1, allowing summer camps to open and workplaces to return with full staffing.
Of the four states the president announced this week as sites for rallies, three — Florida, Arizona and North Carolina — are seeing rising virus caseloads, while Oklahoma’s infection numbers are steady but not falling.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommends that people avoid mass gatherings and stay out of crowded places…..

Stupid is as stupid does!
Two articles from yesterday sum up current reality. The Eugene Robinson piece about Trump being the last president of the Confederacy and Chris Cillizza about the dangers when Trump loses the 2020 election. Cillizza says that Trump will never concede the election and will thereby question the legitimacy of the new administration. He will carry on these far right claims with his very probable, own television network, continuing to foment the divisions in American society.
Trump might go down in history as the last president of the Confederacy
…Perhaps in an attempt to gain political advantage — and perhaps, as much evidence suggests, because it’s what he truly believes — Trump has used this moment to side with Lost Cause white supremacy. His all-caps tweets for “LAW & ORDER” sound like George Wallace when he was governor of Alabama; his demand for a militarized response to the protests reminds me of Bull Connor, the Birmingham commissioner of public safety who attacked nonviolent civil rights protesters with water hoses and vicious dogs.
When it was reported that high-ranking Army officials are open to stripping the names of Confederate generals from military posts such as Fort Bragg, Fort Benning and Fort Hood, Trump reacted instantly. He tweeted Wednesday that he “will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations.”…

I’ve bern saying for awhile that Trump will not go quietly in to that good night.
Further, millions of Republicans will follow him.
Talk of a civil war within the RepUblican Party is premature.Mitt Romney and a few Republican media types snapping at the Leader of the Republican Party do not a civil war make.
Let him lose this election and be lashing out at anyone and everyone, including other Republicans as being insufficiently supportive ,then a civil war you will have.
I’ll have a post later on Trump . for what it’s worth, saying he’ll be ok if he loses…
On that ?
I’m guessing he’s actually telling the truth…
