Donald Trump is Captain America in Tulsa This Weekend

As seen at the Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, someone selling (presumably bootleg) posters of President Donald Trump as Captain America. Still, I suppose with Ike Perlmutter on his side, Marvel is never going to make trouble for this one. This stand is on Denver Street across from the BOK Center in downtown Tulsa, the photo by Apes Diane was sent in with permission by Konrad Yarbrough.

Supporters of President Donald Trump have been gathering outside the arena in Tulsa, Oklahoma, two days before he is scheduled to hold a campaign rally expected to draw at least a hundred thousand people.

NBC News reports that "Despite an uptick of coronavirus cases in the area and fears the event could be a COVID-19 "super-spreader," many attendees chose to forgo masks and social distancing while in line, where people waited on lawn chairs and with tents. One group even entertained their fellow Trump supporters with an upbeat song about his re-election, singing: "Vote Trump! 2020!""

USA Today states that they are "bringing in musical acts, and flying in high-profile surrogates and camera crews to showcase the president's support, according to Trump campaign spokeswoman Samantha Zager" and that the plan "includes leasing a jet to fly in prominent campaign supporters like "Black Voices for Trump" Advisory Board members. Dozens of lawmakers including Oklahoma Republican Sens. Jim Inhofe and James Lankford will also campaign for the president.  The campaign said Wednesday evening over a million people had signed up online to attend the event, and while the rally location, the BOK Center in Tulsa, can only hold 19,000 people, the campaign is arranging overflow capacity, and will be harvesting voter data from all of the registrations."

CBS News adds that "Mr. Trump has dismissed concerns about the risk surrounding his return to the campaign trail, blaming the news media for "trying to Covid Shame us on our big Rallies.""

CNN reminds people that "Oklahoma is seeing a steady increase in its average of new confirmed cases per day. According to a CNN analysis of Johns Hopkins University data, Oklahoma averaged about 203 new cases per day over the week ending June 17, which is up approximately 110% from the previous seven-day period."

Maybe Captain America can save the day?
