After a months-long pandemic-induced hiatus, President Donald Trump will begin holding his infamous rallies again. The first is set to take place next Friday, on Juneteenth, in Tulsa, Oklahoma—the site of the Black Wall Street massacre. It was a move that many saw as a deliberate desecration of Black history as protests against police brutality continue around the nation.

Nevertheless, the Trump campaign is adamant that it will hold a rally.

Typically, thousands of people attend the President's rallies, including many who travel from out of state. With numerous areas still seeing spikes in the highly contagious virus, the risks of spreading the virus in an indoor rally with thousands of people are high.

In response to concerns that Trump's rallies could become a pandemic hotbed, the campaign has taken steps to avoid any liability that contractions traced back to the rally would impose.

Attendees will be required to waive liability in order to retend.

The waiver reads in part:

"By clicking register below, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to [the virus] exists in any public place where people are present."

Guests must "voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure" to the virus in order to hear the speech of a President who routinely dismissed the threat it poses.

People couldn't help but roll their eyes.




By issuing the waiver, the Trump campaign is acknowledging that it's putting its supporters at risk of contracting a virus that's killed over 100 thousand Americans.




This doesn't seem like it will end well.
