Chuck Todd: Rally Came at End of Rough Week for Trump with Sinking Poll Numbers and Two SCOTUS Decisions That Didn’t Go His Way

‘Last night a president frustrated by a virus that has kept him off the campaign trail finally gets to do what he loves best about his job’

RUSH EXCERPT:

TODD: “Good Sunday morning and a happy father’s day to all of the dads out there. Presidential politics, presentations and a partisan pandemic all came together last night in Tulsa, Oklahoma. President Trump has refused to wear a mask and his supporters have followed suit dismissing mask wearing as some liberal virtue signalling and somehow is nothing more than signaling opposition to the president. Last night a president frustrated by a virus that has kept him off the campaign trail finally gets to do what he loves best about his job, thrill an adoring crowd of loyal supporters though the crowd was much smaller than anticipated and plans for an overflow area were scrapped. He did it in a Tulsa arena with mostly non-mask wearing partisans, this as experts fear the indoor rally could be a super spreader event. This, as the United States, Oklahoma and Tulsa, specifically are all seeing spikes in covid-19 cases. This as we’re still experiencing a 9/11-like loss of life every four to five days. The rally came at the end of a rough week for the president, sinking poll be in, the John Bolton book and two supreme Court decisions that didn’t go his way all on top of swiftly changing public attitudes that put Mr. Trump on the wrong side of the culture wars that he’s always leveraged in the past to his advantage.”
