MAGA Fanatic Gym Tycoon Leads Anti-Lockdown Uprising - 2020-12-17
Despite new, harsher state-ordered coronavirus restrictions, some Pennsylvania gyms have deemed their business too important to let a little pandemic stand in the way.
The man leading the charge: a big-time GOP donor in Bucks County, outside Philadelphia, whose organization, People 4 Trump, recently used its website to help rally attendees on buses for an "election integrity" march and fast in Washington, D.C. Some far-right protesters in Washington that day ripped down Black Lives Matter signs and vandalized Black churches.
While the anti-lockdown businesses in Pennsylvania have found some community support, conversations with locals and experts paint a picture of a power-tripping MAGA diehard whose actions risked pushing the hospital system to the brink.
