NEW YORK, NY – Democrats who have criticized President Donald J. Trump for holding “Superspreader” events across the nation held a bunch of their own on Saturday nationwide.
Superspreader events are events where thousands or tens of thousands of people gather in tight quarters, spreading the coronavirus to each other, not following social distancing guidelines or enforcing behavior contradictory to CDC guidelines set forth the control the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
As New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, also a Democrat said this week, “We’re in a pandemic…this is not over…be smart.”
But for tens of thousands of Democrats and Biden supporters, for at least one weekend, COVID-19 had disappeared. No longer was it a concern. No longer was it bad to attend a political rally with thousands of others standing shoulder to shoulder cheering your candidate, for as long as your candidate is not orange, your risk of COVID-19 is very low and the chances of your superspreader event super spreading the virus is also very low.
Here’s a look at some of the largest Biden superspreader events.
In New York City, several superspreader rallies were held including one outside Trump’s Manhattan headquarters.
