Failed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Wednesday wrote on Twitter that President Trump is defying science and sacrificing lives by resuming his rallies, all to “hear cheers from an adoring crowd.”
“This is what narcissism is about. Trump, in order to hear cheers from an adoring crowd, will defy science and sacrifice lives—not just those who go to his rally but those they come in contact with. For the health of the American people he must be defeated,” he tweeted.
Sanders has also tweeted his outrage over the GOP’s decision to hold the celebration of Trump’s nomination in Jacksonville, Florida: “Trump wants 15,000 delegates cheering him at his GOP convention in Florida,” he wrote. “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.”
Progressives have no health safety concerns with hordes of rioters and looters ravaging the country, but they want to ban peaceful Republican rallies.
