Seniors hospitalized after lining up in the heat for Trump's Arizona rally

Eleven people were hospitalized due to heat exhaustion while waiting in line for a rally featuring former President Donald Trump in Phoenix

Nearly a dozen Trump supporters were hospitalized due to heat exhaustion at his first rally since his conviction, which took place in Phoenix, Arizona. The rally was organized by Turning Point USA and was attended by hundreds of supporters who braved the scorching heat to see the former President Donald Trump speak. The temperature reached a record-breaking 111 degrees Fahrenheit, causing several attendees to collapse and require medical attention.

Trump takes 6 days off from campaigning then sends 11 people to the hospital holding a rally at 2:00 PM in Arizona in June when it’s 108 degrees,” writes Ron Filipkowski, Editor-in Chief of MTN, in a post to X. “He doesn’t care at all about these people. He wants their money & their votes so he can acquire power. When will the rubes wake up?”

Perhaps loopy from the heat himself, Trump’s speech at the Turning Point USA sponsored event included a rather creative swipe at President Biden, accusing him of falling out of airplanes and helicopters.
