Donald Trump wants his base to go pack churches and stadiums to see him while ignoring COVID-19. Yet he social distances from them all.
He social distances from everyone.
Watch the episodes here.
Trump was in Arizona today. The state is going through a huge COVID-19 spike. Just like Trump did not care that Oklahoma was going through a spike as well, he decided to hold a rally in Tulsa that was supposed to have tens of thousands. It turned out to be a big bust, a flop.
The pastors of an Arizona megachurch that is holding an event featuring President Trump on Tuesday is claiming the church's air filtration system can kill “99.9% of COVID within 10 minutes.” Dream City Church Senior Pastor Luke Barnett and Chief Operations Officer Brendon Zastro make the erroneous claims in a promo video that has been circulating online this week. The video has been removed from the church's Facebook page.
“We have exciting information about what we're doing to fight COVID-19 here at Dream City Church,” Barnett says in the video. Zastro then says the church has installed a system from Clean Air EXP, a Phoenix-based company that uses technology developed by members of the church.
“We've installed these units and it kills 99.9% of COVID within 10 minutes,” Zastro says.
“When you come into our auditorium, 99% of COVID is gone, killed, if it was even there in the first place,” Barnett says. “Thank God for good technology.”
The “technology,” however, may be too good to be true. According to Clean Air EXP, the system can eliminate 99.9% of airborne coronavirus test surrogates from Coronavirus 229E and Cystovirus Phi6 – not COVID-19, specifically.
Most of the people attending the event did not wear face masks nor were they practicing social distancing. One wonders if they knew that Trump had no intention of getting anywhere close to them. He wants them to sacrifice their health for him but reciprocity? Hell no!
