An Oklahoma judge rejected a lawsuit seeking to block President Trump’s rally in Tulsa this Saturday unless it enforces social distancing and other health measures. The move paves the way for Trump to hold his rally at the 19,000-plus-seat BOK Center despite warnings from some health officials that the event could spread the coronavirus.
“Government officials have advised that the campaign rally as planned is consistent with the guidance for the OURS plan for entertainment venues, however, in the event that the governing authorities impose new restrictions, we will notify the event organizers immediately,“ Meghan Blood, a spokeswoman for the BOK Center, said in a statement to POLITICO.

Not to mention TWO WEEKS ago, it was discovered that three athletes at Oklahoma State have Coronavirus after attending protests. But don't let that get in the way of a good lawsuit. Of course, it's the Trump rally that's the danger here.— Lauren (@SomeBitchIKnow) June 17, 2020
