At a South Carolina event, attended by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Tim Scott (R-SC), “there were few masks and no social distancing — and that was the point,” the New York Times reports.
“Speakers shared the same microphone. Local and state political candidates greeted voters with handshakes and squeezed tight for pictures. Of all the people gathered outside the county Republican office — many of them senior citizens — fewer than a dozen wore masks.”
“The event was an active rejection of behavior that the hyper-conservative crowd has come to associate with liberal enemies in recent months — wearing masks and gloves, staying six feet away from other people, avoiding physical touch.”Save to Favorites
