he is not too stoopid to know what tulsa represents [its ugly history], if he had a shred of decency, he would have chosen another town if he had to do the damned thing at all.

He self-evidently has a strong fan base in Tulsa. You and I know why Blabs but we aren't allowed to say why.

Oklahoma Supreme Court allows Trump rally to proceed as planned, as president says Tulsa curfew being lifted
Quote:
The Oklahoma Supreme Court on Friday ruled that President Trump’s upcoming rally in Tulsa can go ahead as planned despite concerns about coronavirus -- just as Trump announced that a curfew in the city had been lifted for the rally.

“I just spoke to the highly respected Mayor of Tulsa, G.T. Bynum, who informed me there will be no curfew tonight or tomorrow for our many supporters attending the #MAGA Rally. Enjoy yourselves - thank you to Mayor Bynum!” the president tweeted.

Bynum, a Republican, had declared a civil emergency and announced a curfew near the arena where Trump plans to hold a campaign rally on Saturday.

Around the same time as his tweet, the state’s Supreme Court ruled against the request to force everyone attending to wear a mask and stay at least six feet apart from one another -- a policy that would have complicated the massive event with thousands of people.

The court ruled that the two local residents among those filing the suit couldn’t establish that they have a clear legal right to the relief they sought. In a concurring opinion, two justices wrote that the state’s reopening plan is “permissive, suggestive and discretionary.”

“Therefore, for lack of any mandatory language in the (plan), we are compelled to deny the relief requested,” that opinion said.

Earlier in the day, Trump pointedly warned “anarchists” and other “agitators” not to disrupt the rally.

“Any protesters, anarchists, agitators, looters or lowlifes who are going to Oklahoma please understand, you will not be treated like you have been in New York, Seattle, or Minneapolis,” Trump tweeted Friday. “It will be a much different scene.”

Trump does not have the power to lift a local curfew or order local law enforcement on how to treat rioters.


Maybe, based on reading the words in the article, you might have noticed that Mr Trump was informed that there was no curfew for the attendees...Not sure why you seem to imply that HE was the one giving the orders.

I also don't see anything indicating orders being given by him to "law enforcement officers"...A "warning" to those headed there to cause trouble, maybe (possibly based on information supplied to him BY the "law enforcement" from the area as to what they had planned).

I do wish people could stick to facts and not "summarise" or add their own biases to their "overview" where this contradicts the wording of the article which they refer to.


Sorry

No worries...I can understand, based on how things are normally reported (both here and in the media), how you could have thought what you posted was correct (after all, the fact that he was "told" something does not preclude the possibility that he may have steered events to cause the outcome which occurred, although from all I read, both here and in the media, he is supposedly too incompetant to be able to achieve something like that).

No doubt at some time I will (or have) make a similar mistake regarding commentory not matching facts I present in a post, and would hope to be called out as well.

The Real Civil Emergency is A Leader
Putting Those He Serves In Harms
Way by the Very Words of The
Governmental Organization
He Leads To Protect the
Health of the Citizenry
From the Deadly Effects
Of The Covid19 Pandemic;
Yes, Obviously the CDC as
This is the most Dangerous
Environment A Leader could put
Those he Serves in Regard to Warnings
From the CDC; it’s just A Slower Way
Of Putting His Knee on the Neck of
Those He’s Supposed to Protect
And Serve in An Empathy-Less
Twist of A Villain Leader; only
One Verdict Applies for
Trump’s Behavior as
A Leader And
Conviction
For Killing Fields:
INDEFENSIBLE With
Forest Thick Love Facepalms.

i have the sneaking suspicion that at the end of it all, trumpy will escape justice just like ken lay [enron] escaped justice.
