As protests continue to erupt around the country, some are concerned that it poses a definite health threat.
Many health officials still warn against large numbers of citizens gathering, due to the ongoing global pandemic.
It’s clear that many protesters haven’t been observing prevention guidelines, but “The View” host Joy Behar is more concerned about something else:
During the show this week, Behar claimed the upcoming Donald Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma posed a serious danger to public health.
In fact, a much more serious danger than Black Lives Matter protests.
Via The Daily Wire:
The rally for Trump is indoors. The protesters are out in the streets and most of them are wearing masks, I notice, even though a lot of them are not.
And they should be, but the indoor situation is ten times worse and much more dangerous. That’s all. It’s completely different.
Co-host Sunny Hostin agreed.
She said that when you invite 60,000 people indoors, they could very well be infected with a “life-ending virus.” She then called Trump a “menace.”
But co-host Meghan McCain – a conservative – said Behar and Hostin were being hypocritical.
In fact, she claimed the entire media is spreading the same message:
The message from the media is as long as you are protesting something or going to a rally that is of the right politics, you can do it and we’ll ignore the spread of COVID[-19].
McCain then said “we have to be consistent on this.”
Many have called out what they see as media approval of the protests, while the media simultaneously condemns the Trump rally.
Furthermore, it’s important to note that Behar and Hostin neglected to mention that rally attendees will have temperature checks. They will also receive free face masks and hand sanitizer.
And BOK Center spokesman Meghan Blood confirmed the center will be adhering to the state’s health regulations as well.
- “The View” host Joy Behar claims the Trump rally is “10 times worse” than BLM protests, in terms of health concerns.
- Co-host Meghan McCain disagreed and called for consistency in the media’s messaging.
- Trump rally attendees will have their temperatures tested, and will receive complimentary face masks and hand sanitizer.
