Fox’s Steve Doocy on Trump’s Tulsa Rally: ‘I Don’t Know Who Thought It Was a Good Idea’
Fox News’ Steve Doocy questioned the decision to hold a Trump campaign rally in an enclosed space in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Monday. The Fox & Friends host said that in the middle of a pandemic, holding the event without social distancing or other safety measures was a bad idea.
“I think, Brian [Kilmeade], because on Friday morning we had the news story that they were declaring a curfew because they were worried that anarchists were going to descend on Tulsa,” Doocy said.
“There was gonna be melee. I think a number of people didn’t show up for that reason. But at the same time we are during a global pandemic and I don’t know who thought it was a good idea to put 20,000 people in a room … with masks optional.”
“I was at two outdoor dining events this weekend at restaurants in New Jersey, which is slowly reopening. And I gotta tell you, people felt safer outside. If going forward the campaign wants to do big events and apparently they thought about drive-in movie theaters but that wasn’t big enough.”
“They want to do something big, think stadium. Think an amphitheater. NASCAR track. Outside, people can social distance and feel safe. The President could still preside over the crowd but the thought going forward not only has to be about a rally to support the President as his fans would do but about their own personal safety.”
President Trump was reportedly itching to host rallies again and during his appearance in Tulsa he downplayed the significance of the Coronavirus.
