    They make the suckers sign something that says they cannot sue......lol  and they sign it....rofl.

    Obi below is lying.  If they had not signed away their right to sue, they could sue.  Obi must be quoting Russian law. In American and democracy law, anyone holding an event has a fiduciary duty to do right by their client..in this case the attendees.  If you  have an event during a pandemic when the informed consensus is that large crowds are spreader events, you are knowingly exposing your clients ({the public) to the disease. The statement is that you either knew or should have known they  were in danger and you still went ahead and had the event.

    Trump recently was asked by a reporter and one of his rallies if he was not afraid of catching the virus being around all these thousands of supporters. Trump said he was not concerned because he made sure he stayed far away from them but then said...but you reporter I am concerned about you giving me the virus because you are getting close to me...please back up.  That exchange alone shows Trump knows that he is endangering his event attendees. It shows he does not mind packing them in to serve his own personal interests and get them sick but makes sure he is protected.  Guilty as Heck.

    No.  You'd have to prove that the campaign planners knew or ought to have known that someone infected was at their rally, and that they failed to advise you of the increased risk.  You'd also have to prove that you were forced (or just heavily coerced) to attend the rally, and forced (or heavily coerced) to not wear protective clothing.  THEN you'd have to prove that you were infected at that exact rally, which means you'd have to find exactly who passed the virus to you and identify them.

    If you can't prove all of the above, you don't have a case in court.

    Hypothetically yes and hence why the campaign makes all attendees sign a waiver to not do so.  Too Bad for Herman Cain.

    What if you caught the virus at a BLM or Antifa riot, would it still be Trump's fault?

    No, because it's your health your problem, as per the Law of Individualism.

    1. You CAN'T prove where you contracted the Covid-19

    2. Masks ARE allowed, but not required at the rallies.

    3. They have required anyone attending to sign a waiver since Covid-19 was identified.

    Short answer, YOU will not be winning the lawsuit lottery.

    hypothetically....sure....

    ...but the same goes for getting hit with a foul ball at a baseball game...

    yes...you will probably get a settlement....but it won't come close to a multi-million dollar lawsuit payment...

    quite simply, attendance at a ticketed public event comes is taken as your acceptance of whatever terms and conditions the ticket issuer has set... some people actually say "can you believe Trump makes you sign a waiver to attend his events?" as if that actually means anything...

    every trip you take to Disneyland, every sporting event, every church raffle you've ever attended came with waivers that you "signed" simply by attending...

    No.  Assumption of risk is a legal defense to any claim.
