Former WH Doctor: If Trump Thinks Indoor Rally is Safe, He Should Shake Hands With All Supporters

Donald Trump is a famous germaphobe. It is reported that the President always had a bottle of hand sanitizer on him and frequently washes his hands,. During a 1999 interview with CNN, Trump referred to the practice of hand shaking as “barbaric.”

But while the President may do everything he can to avoid getting sick, the same can’t be said of his supporters. Last night, Trump held a large-scale indoor rally in the town of Henderson, Nevada. Dr. Jonathan Reiner said that if the campaign thinks that was safe, they should have had Trump shake hands with all in attendance.

Dr. Reiner has experience in the White House, at one point serving as Dick Cheney’s cardiologist. The Doctor now works for CNN acting as a medical expert.

The medical analyst referred to the event as negligent homicide. He explained, “What else could you call an act that because of its negligence results in the death of others? If you have a mass gathering now in the United States in a place like Nevada or just about any other place with hundreds of thousands of people, people will get infected, and some of those people will die.”

When asked to further explain, Reiner told host John Berman, “[if Trump] thinks it’s safe to gather thousands of people in a pandemic without masks, then he should go down to the rope line and vigorously shake some hands.”
