Virginia health official seeks to stop Friday Trump rally
The Hill ^ | 09 24 2020 | Kaelan Deese

A Virginia health official is seeking to block a planned campaign rally for President Trump Friday evening, citing a "severe public health threat."

Natasha Dwamena, district director for the Department of Public Health, wrote in a letter Thursday the rally would break Gov. Ralph Northam's (D-Va.) executive order that generally bans gatherings larger than 250 people, the Associated Press reported.

She addressed the letter to a private company that leases the aircraft hangar where the rally is slated to take place.

The rally on Friday is expected to draw nearly 4,000 attendees, as Dwamena argues the event should be scaled down or canceled to comply with Northam's order.

"The rally poses a concerning public health risk," Dwamena said in the letter, adding that airport officials in the state are reminded they have "the authority to enforce" Virginia's laws.

Still, Dwamena's call will likely carry no weight on the decision for the rally to take place, as Trump's campaign rally spree has flouted many public health guidelines intended to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

She should run out on the tarmac and stop the plane. That tactic has often worked on vehicle traffic in urban areas.

“”””A Virginia health official is seeking to block a planned campaign rally for President Trump”””

It is not a rally, it is a peaceful protest.

Was a picture really necessary?

So now according to libtards, supporting a electoral candidate with whom libtards don’t agree is a public health risk.

Got it.

4000 people in 16 groups of 250 sitting in every other section of a large venue/stadium should be fine.

“She noted violations of Executive Order 67 constitute a misdemeanor crime.”
Also the Sce of Transportation sent out a warning to all airports.

Why does she straighten her hair so it looks more like a white woman? Why do so many Negroes straighten their hair trying to look white? Should that be considered racist? I feel sorry for her that she has to deny who she really is. What happened to "Black is Beautiful?
