    How about the take from infectious disease experts…

    "We know what makes transmission of the virus occur more frequently, and that includes close contact, particularly without masking, crowds, [being] indoors versus outdoors, the duration of the contact, and then shouting also increases the possibility of transmission," said Catherine Troisi, an infectious disease epidemiologist at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

    This might be the dumbest, most callous thing Trump has done during his presidency.

    Trump will soon tweet that there were millions in attendance at his rally, with photo evidence.

    Infectious disease experts are calling this a super spreader event saying that it violates almost every guideline the CDC has issued.

    Because it does. He doesn’t care if folks get sick and die as long as they slobber all over him.

    C’mon Trumpets. Explain this pathetic turnout. He knows he’s toast. He can’t get folks in Tulsa to fill up a small arena.

    I’m happy for America. We are going to do the right thing on Nov 3rd.

    Thank you Tulsa. You stood up for America tonight. I mean that sincerely. Oklahoma has been part of my market. I like Okies. Hard working, good people in my experience. They did themselves proud tonight.

    Did a Hurricane's football game break out in there?

    I wonder is this will cause Kayleigh McEnany, the darling of the dull, to rethink her no mask thing.

    I'm sure she'll respond in her typical smarmy, mean-girl fashion when asked about it.

    Reporter: "Press Secretary, have your feelings about the no-mask policy changed after the paltry turnout at the rally?"

    McEnany: "Well, I think you should definitely still wear a mask so no one has to see your ugly face"

    Good grief, my son's high school graduation had more people in attendance. In fact, they filled the arena.

    Now let’s not get carried away. This is at least FAU.

    The Golden Hurricanes would probably draw more than this or the other canes!

    Golden Hurricane? Is that like a really really strong golden shower?

    Well at least those who went had plenty of space to practice social distancing.

    From beginning to end, this was the Trump campaign's fault.

    1. He insisted on holding the rally against medical advice
    2. The date and the location were either racially tone-deaf, or a deliberate poke in the eye
    3. Constant bragging about crowd size. He could have had a nice, average-size rally, without the unrealistic expectations. As usual, though, it's all about size and ratings.
    4. Trump and his threatening tweets predicting violence of a kind never seen before. Probably scared off some of his own supporters.

    He said there were awful awful people outside. Did anything actually happen? I’ve seen nothing.
