tRump think, no he is convinced, he is above all laws.   He is the ruler, the king, the authority, and no one or law can tell the Dear Leader what to do.    Hugs

In exclusive interview, Trump slams Sisolak, defends indoor rally

President Donald Trump told the Review-Journal in an exclusive interview Sunday that he did not believe he was subject to Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak’s order limiting gatherings to 50 people when he addressed a crowd of thousands at an indoor rally in Henderson.

 

The evening reflected a split seen across the country between Americans who want fewer restrictions imposed by state and local governments and those who believe that Trump should not encourage his supporters to risk their health in order to express their political opinions.

 

The president complained that holding the rally indoors limited the size of the crowd. The Trump campaign estimated that the audience was about 5,000 people, in addition to crowds assembled outside.

 

Sisolak responded to Trump’s rally in a written statement.

 

“Tonight, President Donald Trump is taking reckless and selfish actions that are putting countless lives in danger here in Nevada,” the statement reads. “Despite reports from his own White House, despite local officials in Southern and Northern Nevada reiterating to the venues the existing restrictions in State emergency directives, tonight, the President of the United States is knowingly packing thousands of people into an indoor venue to hold a political rally.

“The President appears to have forgotten that this country is still in the middle of a global pandemic.”

    Scottie, unfortunately, some of his followers will get COVID-19. And, they will infect others. That is a sad fact. But, facts matter not to the king. Keith

      Hello Keith. Yes that is the thing the governor was trying to prevent. There was a spiral of cases from his Tulsa rally. But as he doesn’t believe anything he doesn’t want to, he doesn’t believe his rallies spread the virus. Hugs

    Whether he was “subject” to the order or not isn’t the point. Any other president would have honored the governor’s directive.

      Hello Nan. True another president would have honored the governors request. But this is tRump who claimed he could order federal troops to take over an area of the cities if he wished, claimed he could activate the national guard in a state which is the right of the governor, and who has many times claimed he could override any state governor to open up or shut down their states as he wished. The point is in his mind, and in the minds of his followers he is in charge, he is the authority that rules all parts of the US. He sent his anti – mask thugs to liberate states with Democratic governors. Seems he is very much trying to send a message. Hugs

        See? This is the fallacy! Trump wants the STATES to take over in one instance (e.g., the virus & associated activities), but in another HE wants to have the say-so. I would say you can’t have it both ways, but …

          Hello Nan. It’s simply he wants the glory of being right with none of the chance he might be wrong. So he wants the states to have to make the choices and for himself the right to rule on those choices he should have been making. Hugs

          OT. Ron got home at about 1 PM. I had a spaghetti and tomato sauce, and some nice meatballs dinner ready for him. It had wiped me out, but I am getting another wind back. Hugs

            I wondered if he might be back. I hope you didn’t overdo on the dinner. BTW, send you a short email.

              Hello Nan. Yes I did over do. Then over did again after Ron got home. I have taken my normal medications and then my emergency medications. But all is good. Ron is home!

              After he eat and had a rest I suggested he go mow the lawn and he thanked me saying that was a great idea! I thought I was pushing him but he thought I was spot on. I just wish I could try the new mower, but I guess that is not to be as I have wonderful friends, one in Oregon who thinks that would be unacceptable. A feeling shared by Ron also.

              The lawn had gotten very high due to our recent rains yet this afternoon is dry due to the sun, which is why Ron thinks it would be a good idea to at least do part of it today.

              The interesting thing if you will let me have a minute is what the pain does to me. It makes it almost impossible to concentrate or think reasonably. Forget spell check I simply start missing adding the words I think I am typing. When I go back to proof read I am like where did the two words before this go? In other words I am typing as I am thinking like I normally do but when my pain level is high often I miss tying entrie words. For example say I was going to write ” the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog”. When my pain levels are high I might really type “the quick fox over dog” and if I do not go back and check carefully what I typed I send something really messed up. In my mind I did type it all. Given how sensitive I am over my lack of formal education even small errors really upset me. Lucky for me most of the places I comment on and the people who know me over look my errors that way. And I admit I need a bit of grace that way now and again. Best wishes, hugs

              Hello Nan. Oh and I will now go look for the email. Thank you for the heads up. I know make it a point to try to check my email every morning after my roundup, but I miss so much. I mean it just keeps rolling in. Hugs
