Even ‘Fox & Friends’ Is Worried About Trump’s Tulsa Rally
Kayleigh McEnany desperately tried to downplay concerns about President Donald Trump's upcoming rally in Tulsa at her press conference at the White House on Wednesday. She probably had no idea that she would be at Fox & Friends before a similar barbecue on Thursday morning.
"Kayleigh, you know, there were a lot of people who said, 'See, it's too early at this point because of social distance to get so many people into a packed arena,'" said Steve Doocy halfway through they look. He also quoted Dr. Anthony Fauci's comments on The Daily Beast that he would not attend such a rally because he is in a "high risk category".

As Doocy put it: "Some suggest that the president not take the COVID pandemic seriously, he is only more interested in getting back on the streets and energizing his base."
"The president took COVID seriously," McEnany assured him. "After all, it was the president who introduced travel restrictions who acted early when the Democrats described this move as 'xenophobic', but especially with regard to the rally, Oklahoma enters phase 3. This is allowed under these guidelines. ”

McEnany made sure not to attack Fox directly, then turned to the same "media" attack she had leveled at her briefing. She said: "We have seen some in the media praising the demonstrators without mentioning that in some cases they are not socially distant or wear masks, but instead target the Trump rally or a church, if any Church wants to reopen appropriately socially distant. "
"Kayleigh, I understand, but this will be the first time that an indoor stadium is fairly full of rafters," Doocy replied. "You don't see the NBA, you don't see any professional sports teams on the go right now. I mean, this is a step we haven't seen during this coronavirus pandemic."
When McEnany repeated that "this is allowed in phase 3," Doocy interrupted her again. "I understand that it is, but nobody else has done it before," he said. "Are you worried about this?"
McEnany expressed no concern, saying instead that the Trump campaign was "leading" in reopening America, noting that masks were being distributed - although this was not required for participants. "We believe that this is a sure opportunity to gather and really celebrate the great things that President Trump does every day in this government."
Then Brian Kilmeade tried flattery. "Since the demand is so high, has there been talk of moving it to an outdoor stadium?"
McEnany postponed the Trump campaign in this case and just said, "Right now it's inside this new arena."
