Trump: “If You Can Protest in Person, You Can Vote in Person!”


Democrats are working overtime to make sure there’s mass mail-in voting in 2020.

And that fact should leave you wondering what they’re up to.

They say that mass COVID infections will occur and people will die if we continue with in-person voting.

But President Trump, in a tweet earlier this week, brought up the following point:

You hit the nail on the head President Trump!

If all these Democrats can get together for Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA protests, they can manage to get in line and vote.

Even NPR admits that in-person voting is probably less risky than people think:

Amid widespread alarm about the ability of the embattled U.S. Postal Service to deliver mailed election ballots on time, pandemic-wary voters are now being told that in-person voting this fall may not be as risky as initially thought.

"We've got to vote early, in person if we can," former first lady Michelle Obama declared during a Democratic National Convention speech on Monday. "We have got to grab our comfortable shoes, put on our masks, pack a brown bag dinner and maybe breakfast, too, because we've got to be willing to stand in line all night if we have to."

Four days earlier, the nation's most prominent expert on infectious diseases had been asked whether people can safely go to polling places and vote in person.

"I think if carefully done, according to the guidelines, there's no reason that I can see why that not be the case," Dr. Anthony Fauci said in an interview with National Geographic.

"I mean, obviously if you're a person who is compromised physically or otherwise, you don't want to take the chance," the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases added. "There's the situation of mail-in voting that has been done for years in many places. So there's no reason why we shouldn't be able to vote in person or otherwise."

And take a look at the following clip where Dr. Fauci, a favorite among liberals, says voting in-person isn't any riskier than visiting the grocery store:

Here's what's trending on Twitter over in-person voting:

Dr. Birx also says in-person voting shouldn't be very risky.

In fact, according to Just The News, she says it's comparable to visiting a Starbucks:

The doctor coordinating the White House Coronavirus Task Force says she believes it will be safe for voters to go to the polls in November.

“Well, I can tell you it has been safe for me to go to Starbucks and pick up my order,” Dr. Deborah Birx told Just The News in an interview when asked about in-person voting.

Birx has been traveling the country by car and one of her practices is to visit as many Starbucks as she can in an attempt to gauge whether people are wearing masks and socially distancing. She said her coffee experiences in states that have higher than normal COVID-19 cases, has led her to a conclusion about voting.

“If you go into Starbucks in the middle of Texas and Alabama and Mississippi that have very high case rates, then I can't say that it would be different waiting in line in the polls,” Birx said.

Of course, she cautions that masks must be worn and social distancing must be adhered to. “I know there's a way but you really do have to pay attention,” she added.

Birx spoke Friday afternoon at the White House on a myriad of topics. While much of the discussion centered on vaccines and a potential timetable for a return to normal, she also revealed something personal: she’s been a victim of harassment and threats via technology.

“I do get death threats, and I get text messages that are horrific,” she said. “I get stuff sent to my home where my daughters are that is shocking and their phones get shocking messages. All of that has been happening since March.”

In a way, Birx has a thankless job as she tries to navigate not just the reality of a deadly virus but the political realities as well. Most of the criticism has come from liberal Democrats who have criticized her for not doing enough to set the record straight on some of the president’s medical claims.

Birx, who has served in both Republican and Democratic administrations for decades, said she will soldier on. “You just have to stay true to your own personal values,” she said. “I've never been asked to cross that line. I believe when people look back that they'll find out that I personally never crossed that line.”

As it relates to the larger fight against the coronavirus, she’s taking an approach that doesn’t look too far ahead. She’s concentrating on the fall right now.

“I think Americans are getting fatigued,” she acknowledged. As we head into a new season, she recommended that people get the flu vaccine as scientists work speedily on a COVID-19 vaccine. She expects results of vaccine testing this fall.

“Vaccines are being manufactured and that's going well,” she said.
