Biden Rips Trump Campaign’s COVID Rally Disclaimer

NBC News reports:

Joe Biden slammed President Donald Trump on Friday for his decision to hold campaign rallies during the coronavirus pandemic while making attendees acknowledge that they could get sick by coming. “And now he’s having a rally on Juneteenth,” Biden said on a call.

“All the people coming to the rally have to sign a piece of paper that if they get COVID in this, they will not sue the campaign.” Biden, returning to the topic later in the phone call Friday, said Trump “knows it’s a problem” that people are likely to contract the virus at the rally.

“But he’s not doing a damn thing about it,” Biden said. At another point, Biden said it was “almost criminal, the way he’s handled this,” referring to the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic.
