CNN Medical Analyst Says BLM Protests Are Safer from Coronavirus Spread than Trump Rallies (5 Cartoon)

 During a roundtable discussion CNN’s resident medical analyst Leana Wen made the absurd claim that Black Lives Matter protests are somehow safer to attend than Trump rallies.

“I think it’s important for us as public health experts to lead with the science. And the science tells us that this is a virus that does not discriminate. It doesn’t care why it is that people are gathering, but it does care about the conditions under which they’re gathering, so outdoors much safer than indoors,” Wen said.

“Wearing masks obviously much safer than not wearing masks. And I also in this case would distinguish between the behavior of the participants while at protests versus rallies.”

“At protests many people are aware of the risks and are doing everything they can to reduce that risk, versus at many of the rallies we are seeing people going in defiance. It’s their behavior during those events. There was a study looking at over 300 cities where protests occurred and they did not find surges of infections tied to these protests,” she added.

Watch via CNN:

The idea that Black Lives Matter / Antifa protests and riots are somehow safer than attending Trump rallies is absurd and ridiculous.

That said, it does fit CNN’s preferred narrative so just because the claim that BLM rallies are safer than Trump rallies is absurd and ridiculous doesn’t mean it should stand in the way.

CNN has descended from a news organization to a strictly partisan opinion outlet and clown show.
