WaPo: Workers removed thousands of social distancing stickers before Trump’s Tulsa rally, according to video and a person familiar with the set-up https://t.co/HRnWHZqdC1— Geoff Bennett (@GeoffRBennett) June 27, 2020
Why not believe them in this?
“The rally was in full compliance with local requirements. In addition, every rally attendee received a temperature check prior to admission, was given a face mask, and provided ample access to hand sanitizer,” Murtaugh said in an emailed statement.
In a separate statement, the campaign said: “There were signs posted and we are not aware of any campaign staff asking that they be removed.”
In a video clip obtained by The Washington Post, two men — one in a suit and one wearing a badge and a face mask — can be seen pulling stickers off seats in a section of the arena. It is unclear who those two men are. When Trump took the stage on Saturday evening, the crowd was clustered together and attendees were not leaving empty seats between themselves.
That, and WaPo is just confirming a story Billboard had already published.
This is fine, right? Or maybe this is why:

Naah, I'm sure it's just a coincidence!
