From Fox News:
More than two days before the president is set to take the stage in Oklahoma for his first rally since the coronavirus lockdowns, ardent Trump supporters are already lining up to camp outside the venue.
President Trump on Saturday night is scheduled to rally with supporters at BOK Center, a venue in Tulsa which can hold around 20,000 people.
I’d estimate about 2 dozen Trump supporters are already lined up outside the BOK center ahead of Saturday’s rally. Security barricades can also be spotted on nearby streets ahead of the president’s visit – his first rally since early March. pic.twitter.com/wBeG6NlB1m

“So you are prepared to sit out here for five-six days?” a local reporter with KFOR asked a group holding up a Trump 2020 flag this week.

“We’re here till after the rally,” one woman assured the reporter.
“I came here Sunday at 9 a.m.,” another man added.
Think there’s excitement in #Tulsa about @realDonaldTrump rally? The first person in line showed up at 2:30 am Monday – an all-time record! And 100+ in line!!
This will be the greatest #TrumpRally of all time!!!!!!@parscale @LaraLeaTrump @michaelglassner @_MeganPowers @cmahfouz pic.twitter.com/5bqQNgRZQt

‘JUST SARCASM’: Dem Who Supported Spreading Coronavirus at MAGA Rallies Says Comment Just ‘Sarcastic’
A Democratic councilwoman from Denver deflected a growing backlash after she signaled her support for spreading the Coronavirus at ‘Make America Great Again’ rallies Tuesday; saying her comments were simply “sarcastic.”
“Councilwoman CdeBaca made a sarcastic tweet on Twitter to call attention to the Trump administration’s downplaying of the Coronavirus outbreak as a “hoax” no more dangerous than the common flu. Rather than conservative outlets making a four-day-old Tweet their focus on Super Tuesday, they should focus their energy on demanding a competent Federal response to this public health crisis instead,” said a statement from her office.

The Colorado Republican Party released their own statement shortly after, saying “Councilwoman CdeBaca praising a social media post calling for Trump supporters to be infected with the coronavirus is simply disgusting. There can be no room in our politics for wishing harm on Americans who have different political beliefs. Democrats in Colorado and across the country need to condemn this evil statement… In light of these comments, the Colorado Republican Party is calling on Councilwoman CdeBaca to resign immediately.”
