Trump Fans to Sign Waivers In Case He Kills Them

Are you planning to attend Trump's first Nuremberg rally in months?

Probably not but, if you are, you'll have to sign a waiver.

Tickets for Trump's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma -- the site of one of the worst race massacres in U.S. history in which 300 black people were killed by rioting whites -- are free but if you want a free ticket you'll have to promise not to sue Trump or his campaign.

“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,” the waiver says.

“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.” [...]

The sign-up page for tickets to the Tulsa rally did not say what measures would be taken to assure the safety of crowds or whether masks or social distancing would be required.

I am skeptical that many people will wear masks to Trump's rally because that's why they're going to begin with, isn't it? They need their Two Minutes of Hate and that includes hatred of people who display even a modicum of social responsibility by wearing masks in public. You know, those liberals with their pre-existing conditions; the poors who can't afford to get sick or miss more work. Basically me.

Anyone willing to sign a waiver like this probably isn't that concerned about their health or the health of their loved ones in any case.

    I wonder how many people registering for free tickets will even bother to read the not-so-small print around the register button. Not many, I’d wager.

    These are the same people who’ve been taught to insist that Covid-19 is just like the flu or a cold, so even the handful who did read the waiver would still click.

    No two ways about it, the modern GOP is a death cult.

    And none will do the math on the waiver compared to the “hoax”.
