Trump supporter brought a mask to president’s rally — but then felt ‘peer pressure’ to not wear it

Published

A young supporter of President Donald Trump confided to USA Today’s Nicole Carroll that he decided against wearing a mask at the president’s campaign rally in Phoenix earlier this week because no one else in the room was doing so.

During the president’s rally at an Arizona megachurch this week, Carroll interviewed 19-year-old Santiago Stewart, who admitted to bringing a mask with him.

Stewart admitted to Carroll that he was “a little” worried about getting sick, but he still didn’t put the mask on when he saw a sea of mask-free Trump supporters at the event.

“So was it peer pressure?” asked Carroll.

“Yeah, kind of,” he replied.

20-year-old Trump supporter Kaylee Spielman, meanwhile, told Carroll that she didn’t bother wearing a mask even though her grandparents were vulnerable to getting very sick from the disease.

Spielman insisted that she was taking other precautions — but when asked by Carroll to name them, she replied, “Obviously not too many.”

Kellyanne Conway attacks Kamala Harris for upholding a law Trump also supports

Published

on

The Hatch Act is a federal law that bans certain federal government officials from engaging in political activities while in their role as executive branch employees.

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway is the poster child for breaking that federal law. Her violations have become so blatant that last year the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) recommended to President Donald Trump that Conway should be fired for violating that law. Trump refused, and Conway continues to ignore it, as she did just minutes ago.

Trump furious that he can’t do rallies in Florida after its GOP governor made COVID spread ‘worse’: report

President Donald Trump is reportedly furious at one of his allies for taking his advice.

According to Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman, the president is angry that he can't hold any of his trademark campaign rallies in Florida amid its weeks-long surge in COVID-19 cases.

What's more, Sherman's sources say Trump is putting the blame for this predicament at the feet of Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has been eager to follow the president's commands to reopen state economies even as the country records more than 50,000 infections and 1,000 new deaths from the novel coronavirus every day.

Kellyanne Conway complains ‘sexist’ media covers what Kamala Harris is wearing but not Mike Pence

Published

on

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway suggested on Wednesday that Vice President Mike Pence is the victim of "sexist" news coverage which does not report on his wardrobe.

While speaking to reporters outside the White House, Conway reacted to the news that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) had been selected as Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's running mate.

Conway argued that other women -- like herself -- had made history before Harris was chosen as the presumptive vice presidential nominee.

"We can't say certain words or certain words mean a certain thing," Conway opined. "And I'd be careful about that, not just because all of those words are said by all of you about people like me but also because I guess we don't treat all women the same, especially women who were the first and made history. But that's alright. I'll have my say one day."
