Trump Campaign Blares ‘In the Air Tonight’ at Iowa Rally Amid COVID Spike
President TrumpThe campaign pumped “In the Air Tonight” to its Des Moines rally – where few people wear face masks – and it’s breathtakingly tasteless given some grim facts of COVID-19.
The song choice comes as the coronavirus ravages the state. Iowa has the 4th highest COVID-19 infection rate in the United States, 61 senior care facilities are reporting outbreaks and it recorded 1,180 new cases … on Wednesday alone.
So hear the Phil collins hit – already a disturbingly sounding song – yelling at the Iowans crowd supporting Trump and dodging masks is disgusting. CNN Jim acosta was doing a live photo of the event as the song played … and it was surreal to see.
Make no mistake … this is NOT a coincidence.
Trump and his campaign never miss an opportunity to prick his enemies with their musical selections at his rallies. He has certainly heard all the criticism that he is organizing potential “super-spreader” rallies as COVID cases soar across much of the country.
And the band continued to play …
