How many will get Herman Cained this time?

It really seems shortsighted for the President to gather a bunch of his most dedicated supporters, bring them indoors without masks or social distancing, and get them all shouting to get that spittle flying as much as possible in close proximity to each other, in the middle of a pandemic just two months before he will need every one of their votes to carry a swing state.

Yes, the rally itself is appalling. But even if Trump views his supporters as nothing more than cannon fodder, this is a remarkably bad strategy in terms of making sure his supporters are able to vote for him in seven weeks.
