Rallygoers are asked to RSVP and enter the program, and they must accept that there is “an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are located.”

McNaney accused the media of lacking “internal coherence”, saying that the same questions were not asked by protesters across the country after George Floyd’s death.
