Oh Puke! Now Georgia is offering to host the Trump Convention

Georgia’s GOP leaders are laying out the welcome mat for the Republican National Convention, stoked by President Donald Trump’s threats to move the August gathering from Charlotte unless the state’s governor can guarantee full attendance.
Atlanta’s mayor, meanwhile, is firmly opposed to the idea.
Gov. Brian Kemp said Georgia would be “honored to safely host” the party’s seminal event, touting the state’s facilities and workforce in a Tuesday tweet. And Georgia GOP chair David Shafer said he’s contacted the RNC about the possibility.
That triggered sharp concerns from Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, who said in a statement that the city is following a “phased, data-driven approach to reopening” that mirrors the strategy by North Carolina.

During a king tide.
Then we can conveniently ‘forget’ to reopen highway 80 and write them all off as a casualty of sea-level rise.

As a North Carolinian, my first thought when the grand old pukes threatened to pull their convention out of Charlotte was, if it’s not just bluff, they’re gonna run on down to Georgia/ Atlanta. On edit: agree with you, mmonk. We don’t need their hate fest in NC. reminds me of bathroom-gate.

Where ever Trump has his crazy GOP rally, you know a bunch of super spreaders are going to be there. If you can, call in sick, and stay away from the GOP crazy fest. I feel sorry for those workers who have to provide services to these nuts. Look out for yourself, you know your government and your employer won’t.
