SNAPSHOT OF TODAY'S STATE OF THE UNION
Week 2: October 12, 2020
On Saturday afternoon, the president held his first public gathering, i. e., campaign rally since his Covid-19 diagnosis. What is interesting about this, you ask? Among the obvious is the event itself. Initially reported to host approximately 2000 attendees, the event took place in the South Garden of the White House where just weeks earlier was the exact area where another crowd gathered which ended with numbers who attended ended with Covid-19.

Last Saturday's event took place less than ten days after the president's diagnosis and five days after his release from the hospital in the face of the results of the previous gathering and questionable evidence that the president is now testing negative of the virus. But, most interesting is this particular event hosted hundreds of African-American and Hispanic, represented to be supporters of law and order, i. e. the president's agenda. These are the two groups reported to have the highest and most disproportionate number of Covid-19 deaths in the nation. Now the vile and absurd conspiracy theorists could possibly generate a narrative that these were invited as dispensable guinea pigs to test the waters. Of course such is not credible at all. The president cares too much for people's health and wellness than put anyone at risk for the sake of politics or winning an election.
