What are your thoughts on what went down in Tampa Florida yesterday when dozens of Trump supporters were overcome by heat wave during rally?
Many needed paramedics, 1 fainted while another had a seizure
They waited hours in 87 degrees
Is this similar to what happened in Omaha?

A crowded Trump rally in steamy Tampa, Florida, on Thursday resulted in 17 attendees needing medical attention, with a dozen being taken to the hospital, fire officials told NBC News.
A fire truck at the rear of the rally sprayed water in the air to rain down on some rallygoers, but the heat was too much for some attendees, many of whom had been waiting for hours. Tampa Fire Rescue said one of the attendees fainted and another had a seizure. The other 10 who were taken to the hospital were just listed as "sick" with no other details.
The incident came two days after 30 rallygoers in Omaha, Nebraska, needed medical attention after transportation issues resulted in hundreds of attendees being stuck for hours in the freezing cold. Officials said seven were taken to area hospitals with a variety of ailments.

I live and work in the Tampa bay area and while the temperature was in the higher 80's what you forget to factor in is the HUMIDITY that was quite high yesterday and that adds to how the heat and cold feels to our bodies. It is quite possible there were people that couldn't handle the heat AND humidity especially if they had NO protection from the sun or even a hat to keep the sun from baking they're heads. Also don't forget quid pro quo braindead Biden ALSO has a "rally" in Tampa yesterday too at the fairgrounds BUT it was called a "drive by rally" so Biden and his supporters were in fact adding a great deal to the COUGH global warming problem they claim to care so much about by sitting in they're cars idling with they're A/C going for HOURS to keep cool! But I guess that's alright IF your a LIEberal left demoCROOK.

Liar. The high temperature yesterday in Tampa was 88 degrees.
No one in Florida finds that hot after months of temperatures in the 90s and 100s
