Trump continues to spread the message that he doesn’t care about the health and welfare of his supports, and people passed out from the heat at his Tampa rally.
Monica Alba tweeted this video of the latest Trump carnage:
It’s so hot here in Tampa (87 degrees) that there’s a truck blasting water at the back of the Trump rally crowd. Multiple people have passed out already, with supporters calling for medics every 5-10 minutes. pic.twitter.com/Iu7I2KbgYi

Earlier this week, several Trump supporters had to be hospitalized in Omaha after the Trump campaign abandoned them in freezing temperatures without adequate transportation to get back to their cars that were parked almost four miles away from the rally.
The rallies have already backfired on Trump as they are cementing the message in the minds of voters that Donald Trump doesn’t care about anyone but himself.
Trump should not be holding these rallies in the middle of a pandemic. His campaign is spreading the coronavirus with each large maskless and non-socially distanced gathering. Donald Trump is making the situation even worse by intentionally exposing his supporters to the elements.
It isn’t an accident that his supporters have been improperly cared for twice in a week. It is by design that Trump is projecting his need for power and control on his supporters.
Cruelty and neglect aren’t bugs in Trump’s campaign. They’re features.
