Just a week ago, President Donald Trump had a large rally at the Gaston Municipal Airport in Gastonia, North Carolina where social distancing was unheard of and masks were few and far between.

Already two people at the rally have tested positive for COVID-19, announced Gaston County’s health department on Thursday.

According to the statement, the spread of the virus appears to be from two people who are independent from each other.

The county is working on contact tracing “because of the large number of potential contacts from the rally, and the inability to alert them directly,” said the release.

They’re being told that anyone who has symptoms should get tested.

There were 15,000 people at the airfield last week and the Trump campaign’s ticket waiver says they’re not responsible for anyone getting the virus while at their rallies.

In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.

When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.

"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."
