Skip to comments.Pelosi suggests large venue for DNC amid pandemic

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she has suggested to Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez that the party hold its nominating convention in a large stadium that would allow for social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Democratic National Convention is scheduled to take place in Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 17-20. But the health emergency the country is facing has caused uncertainty over how conventions can safely take place.
Pelosi said finding a space that would allow individuals to remain six feet apart and potentially shortening the length of the event could be an option.
"When I was a girl, I went with my parents to the convention in Los Angeles, and at that convention, John F. Kennedy was nominated. And he gave his acceptance speech in the Coliseum, this enormous ... stadium. So when Obama did that in Denver, everybody said, 'Oh, it's the first time,' [but] that wasn't the first time: John F Kennedy was the first time," she said during an interview with C-SPAN on Friday evening.
"So my suggestion to Mr. Perez was get a gigantic stadium and put people six feet apart," she continued. "So maybe instead of having 80,000 people there, you would have 16,000 people there and just do it all in one day. I served [on] the platform committee [in 1992] so I know what that entails ... [you] have your platform and then nominate your vice president, nominate the president, have your speeches and everyone go home."

High school gymnasium?
I thought they were going to hold the convention by mail.
The optics on television could be great - it will neither look nor sound like there are many people supporting the demonkraps.
the Gobi Desert isn’t too crowded that time of year
And they can be near 1.9 Billion of their klosest kommie komrads
(That would be kkk for you less attentive lurkers)
In reality, it will provide cover for a VERY low turnout.
I hear Biden suggests Ebbets Field where the Brooklyn Dodgers play.
The evidence is increasing that the lockdown proponents don't believe their own b.s.
They should have their convention of idiots in the desert and they should ban water.
How about a large OUTDOOR stadium in the Seattle area? Then they could get sympathy votes for standing in the rain
However, It WAS the first time that a Presidential Candidate, BARACK OBAMA, used a replica of Pergamon - REVELATION'S SEAT OF SATAN - as a backdrop for his acceptance speech.
“When I was a girl, I went with my parents to the convention in Los Angeles, and at that convention, John F. Kennedy was nominated. And he gave his acceptance speech in the Coliseum, this enormous ... stadium...”
“...and then I asked myself, ‘Is that all there is...to a convention? Is that...all there is? IS that all there is? If that’s all there is, my friends, then lets keep dancing. Lets break out the booze and have a ball, if thats all, there is.”
How about the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
Biden can sneak in from his bunker in Delaware. The Stadium will be trashed, like the days of Obama.
Pelosi was a ‘girl’ when JFK was nominated?
That would have to have been 1960. I graduated HS in 1957 & I am 80. Pelosi is about the same age——
Another stretch of her ‘truths’.
Burning Man has been cancelled—— Black Rock Desert is open.
