Of Young Nations and Caravans MIAMI, Florida – The cars began to line up at the gates over an hour before the event was set to begin. The gathering for the “Anti-communist and Anti-socialist Caravan for Freedom and Democracy” took place on October 10, 2020, at Magic City Casino, located on NW 7 st and 37 Avenue, in the Flagami
Tiffany Trump celebrated her birthday in style, complete with a no-mask party and tons of criticism. INSERT VIDEO HERE Birthday Party Donald Trump’s daughter, Tiffany Trump, turned 27 this week and no one is surprised by how she celebrated. Instagram stories from the other night showed that Tiffany Trump was out partying for her birthday in Miami. These videos look like the world is back to normal. No one is wearing a mask and they are all inside and close together, which shouldn’t be happening since we are still in a pandemic. Those in attendance of the party included Tiffany’s boyfriend, Michael Boulos, as well as David Einhorn and Aris Nanos. None of whom were wearing masks. Backlash Tiffany has been getting a lot of backlash for how she celebrated her birthday, which encouraged the hashtag #ByeTiffany to become trending on Twitter. One tweet details how out of touch Tiffany is with the real world saying, “Tiffany can’t relate to most of us! Friends and family dying of Covid. Losing jobs, businesses, cars, homes, going hungry, etc. Tiffany has had everything given to her! The average American has not! Tiffany is a typical “Trump!” She’s partying while we struggle.” Tiffany can't relate to most of us! Friends and family dying of Covid. Losing jobs, businesses, cars, homes, going hungry, etc. Tiffany has had everything given to her! The average American has not! Tiffany is a typical "Trump!" She party's while we struggle! #ByeTiffany https://t.co/Q2A1htNFtj — Meidas_Ceejay 🌊💪👄🐶🐱🥊🍷🌊 (@MeidasCeejay) October 15, 2020 Another user expresses anger as she reminds everyone of the harsh realities that people are still facing because of the pandemic. She says, “I cannot see my daughter who lives 3000 miles away, but you Tiffany Trump can risk spreading the coronavirus all over Florida for your birthday? Over 200,000 Americans have died but you just had to party. Healthcare workers overwhelmed, but hey, YOLO.” #ByeTiffany I cannot see my daughter who lives 3000 miles away but you @TiffanyATrump can risk spreading the coronavirus all over Florida for your bd? Over 200,000 Americans have died but you just had to party. Healthcare workers overwhelmed but hey YOLO. — kbb (@kbb40332460) October 15, 2020 Angry tweets aside, a viral video edited by MeidasTouch helped the #ByeTiffany hashtag gain further momentum. The video cuts between Tiffany’s elaborate birthday party and news footage showing how COVID is impacting regular American Citizens. The stark contrast between the two emphasizes the difference between realities. The video also points out that quarantine has been going on for so long because people are not complying with CDC guidelines. There are people who are still pretending like the pandemic is over continuing everyday activities without precautions. 📺 NEW VIDEO Retweet and watch until the very end.#ByeTiffany pic.twitter.com/xhvYNN5yWZ — MeidasTouch.com (@MeidasTouch) October 15, 2020 Created during quarantine by the Meiselas brothers, MeidasTouch is a news and digital media company with the goal to “defeat Trump” in the upcoming election. Being experts in their unique fields of legal, marketing and digital media, the brothers have created an online following prepared to defeat Trump by producing videos that “take the oxygen out of his messaging.” If you are wondering why the name ‘Meiselas’ rings a bell, it’s because Ben Meiselas led the lawsuit against Billy MacFarland and FYRE Festival. Who Else Is To Blame? While the hashtag is about Tiffany Trump, one Twitter user points out how it’s obviously more than just Tiffany to blame, “…anyone who engages in these types of behaviors are to blame for our current pandemic climate lasting longer. People having weddings, parties, celebrating Anything with groups of people without masks on and not social distancing are part of the problem.” It's not only Tiffany. ANYONE who engages in these types of behaviors are to blame for our current pandemic climate lasting longer. People having weddings, parties, celebrating ANYTHING with groups of people without masks on and not social distancing are part of the problem. — Wear A Mask (@Nov2020Resist) October 15, 2020 The Trump family has been criticized throughout quarantine for their response to the pandemic. The Trumps’ favor for a “mask optional” policy has risked the health and safety of many around them, including themselves. Donald Trump recently contracted COVID, along with wife Melania and son Barron. On top of masks being optional, the White House continues to hold large gatherings, despite the CDC advisories. As a result of loose coronavirus precautions among White House events, the President, members of his family and a list of staff members contracted coronavirus. Many of the White House members who tested positive for corona, attended the “superspreader” event on the White House lawn a few weeks ago. We also can’t look past other leaders during this pandemic who are not taking it seriously. Tiffany is technically allowed to do this because all mask and social distancing restrictions were lifted in Florida. There are no rules for people to follow, so no wonder some want to act like our lives are completely back to normal. While Gov. DeSantis has lifted coronavirus restrictions in Florida, WFLA journalist @EvanDonovan says some “businesses are still enforcing them.” “How we move forward it, it looks like Floridians are the ones who are taking the reins here.” https://t.co/lL6YTJmwLl — MSNBC (@MSNBC) October 9, 2020 While Tiffany is not the sole reason to blame for COVID lasting as long as it has, she is certainly getting more criticism than other anti-maskers based on her family’s response to COVID. Tiffany traveling to Miami to have a maskless birthday party was just another example of how the Trumps have acted carelessly, undermining the severity of the coronavirus pandemic.
The internet is enraged at NBC for hosting a town hall for President Donald Trump after he refused to debate former Vice President Joe Biden virtually for the second presidential debate on Thursday October 15th. As a result of the debate being cancelled, Biden took matters into his own hands and arranged a town hall to be aired on ABC. In an attempt at fairness, Trump also arranged his own town hall, airing on competing network NBC at the exact same time as Biden’s. BREAKING: Twitter explodes with #BoycottNBC, #BoycottMSNBC and #BoycottTrumpTownHall hashtags after the network announces a town hall event with Trump, in response to him backing out of the debate. — James Kosur (@JamesKosur) October 14, 2020 Arguments Over Format Of Second Debate The second presidential debate was set for Thursday October 15th, but with President Trump’s recent diagnosis of coronavirus, it was to be moved to a virtual format instead of in-person so as not to risk any spreading of the disease. President Trump refused to take part if the debate was to be virtual. A compromise over how to do the debate could not be reached between the two candidates, and so the second presidential debate was cancelled. In an effort to still address the American people’s questions and concerns, Biden announced last week that he would be hosting a town hall event in Philadelphia on Thursday at 8pm EST, in place of the debate. He will be answering questions written by Americans. What will happen when Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden directly faces the questions of real voters in a key battleground state? The @ABC2020 town hall event, ‘The Vice President and the People,’ airs Thursday at 8e|7c|5p on ABC. https://t.co/lfLa0LLuZs pic.twitter.com/p3I6odKL3N — ABC News (@ABC) October 12, 2020 Today, NBC announced that they will be hosting a town hall for President Trump in Miami on Thursday at 8pm EST as well. President Trump will take part in an NBC News town hall event in Miami on Thursday. https://t.co/7IdOHkTLsZ — NBC News (@NBCNews) October 14, 2020 #BoycottNBC NBC’s announcement has not gone over well, generating backlash on the internet. Twitter has taken to using the “#boycottNBC,” as a way to protest the news network’s decision. Some users have been voicing concern over the media playing into “Trump’s games.” THIS IS HOW the media plays trumps game & I’m sick & tired of it. I will be watching @ABC. trump refused to take part in the scheduled debate with Biden so @nbc is giving him a town hall at the exact same time Biden is on @ABC #boycottnbc — Rabbi Jill Zimmerman (@RabbiJill) October 14, 2020 Many point out the similarities between a parent rewarding a child for having a tantrum and NBC hosting a town hall for Trump after refusing to take part in the scheduled debate. Who here is going to #BoycottNBC tomorrow and watch @JoeBiden on @ABC because children like Trump should not be rewarded for throwing tantrums?#BoycottTrumpTownHall #BoycottMSNBC #boycottTrumpNBC — Liddle’ Savage (@littledeekay) October 14, 2020 Retweet if you agree it's time to #BoycottNBC for giving Trump a town hall, effectively rewarding him for refusing to debate @joebiden. — Grandma Grit 🌎 former GOP (@grandmagrit) October 14, 2020 Many people are outraged because of the fact that both town halls are taking place at the same time, forcing voters to choose one candidate to watch. Here we are, a nation already more divided than ever… and @NBCNews is airing Trump's town hall AT THE SAME TIME as Biden's? It doesn't serve anyone if voters don't have the opportunity to see candidates. #BoycottNBC #BoycottMSNBC — Randi Mayem Singer (@rmayemsinger) October 14, 2020 Does either candidate really benefit from hosting individual town halls? Biden doesn't particularly benefit from his town hall, either. He's trying to run out the clock. The main reason he booked the town hall was probably to ensure that Trump and the CPD wouldn't try to call the debate back on. He doesn't care if fewer people watch. — Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) October 14, 2020 Is this giving anyone else flashbacks to the first presidential debate a few weeks ago? when your family forces you to watch the presidential debate to learn more about the candidates… all i’m learning is that both are immature and aren’t fit to run the country… — 𝓂𝑜𝓇𝑔𝒶𝓃 (@morgannn_phill) September 30, 2020 Not only are everyday Americans upset, but there is palpable tension between current and former NBC employers. I've heard from over a dozen NBC, MSNBC, and CNBC sources (talent and staff) and the frustration with and anger toward their employer for scheduling a town hall against Biden is palpable. — Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) October 14, 2020 Former NBC News Executive Vivian Schiller commented on the network’s decision, labeling the coinciding timing of the event “shameful,” and stating that, “the point of a news organization is to serve the public. This is the opposite.” The point of a news organization is to serve the public. This is the opposite. @NBCNews could literally run this any other day, or any other time. Shameful. (Disclosure: I am a former NBC News exec) https://t.co/I1CrBq3Y3H — Vivian Schiller (@vivian) October 14, 2020 People urge NBC employees to speak out against their network. Rachel? Speak up. Your network is making a GRAVE mistake REWARDING Trump for canceling on the debate. With timing the Trump event against Biden time slot, your network REWARDS breaking with debate tradition. You need to speak up Rachel. Say something#BoycottNBC #BoycottMSNBC — Tomi T Ahonen BoycottNBC (@tomiahonen) October 14, 2020 Despite many people being up in arms about the injustice NBC has incurred, some are blatantly showing who they’ll be watching on Thursday. Just in case it’s not clear, I’m talking about my President pic.twitter.com/5aH8ns055n — United for the People 💛🥁 (@people4kam) October 14, 2020 Trump’s Coronavirus Case NBC claimed that Trump’s town hall would be “in accordance with the guidelines set forth by health officials,” in Miami. But until Tuesday, the network had actually been planning on cancelling the event if the President was unable to provide evidence that he was not at risk of infecting others. After a test administered on Tuesday, a clinical director at the National Institute of Health Dr. Lane stated “with a high degree of confidence” that Trump “is not shedding infectious virus.” Dr. Lane and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the United States’ top infectious disease expert, reviewed medical data about Trump’s COVID case. They analyzed a PCR test, a commonly used virus diagnostic which is considered more reliable than rapid antigen tests. The doctors did not explicitly report a negative result from the PCR test. Melania Trump did announce that Barron Trump also contracted COVID-19, adding her son to the list of other White House associates who have contracted the virus since a number of infectious gatherings and no mask wearing enforcement. The town hall in Miami will take place outdoors, and President Trump will sit twelve feet, more than the commonly advised six feet apart, away from moderator Savannah Guthrie. Attendees will be required to wear masks. Joe Biden’s town hall will take place in Philadelphia moderated by George Stephanopoulos. As if the first presidential debate wasn’t telling enough, this Presidential election will continue to be unlike any other before it. President Trump and Joe Biden are still set to meet in person for the third and final presidential debate on Thursday October 22nd in Nashville, TN. It will be interesting to see which town hall other news outlets, such as CNN, Fox, etc. will choose to air. But more importantly, who will you be watching this Thursday at 8pm EST?
