MSNBC’s medical expert Dr. Vin Gupta thinks that all political rallies should be prohibited due to the coronavirus — despite the fact that he marched in the Seattle Black Lives Matter protests just days earlier.
“We need the president and the vice president to not undermine the adversaries of the public health world. We have the president about to have a super-spreader event in Tulsa,” Gupta said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday.
“The fact he’s asking for informed consent of his supporters before a rally where there’s no social distancing or masking is egregious. That’s what I do before I do a procedure in the ICU because there might be potential harm but there’s benefit.”
“What’s the benefit to these supporters? Other than giving applause to the president,” he continued. “It makes no sense. We need to stop that. We need to ban political rallies. We need to encourage masking, frankly making it mandatory, I’ve been saying that for weeks.”
