- One of President Donald Trump’s most visible superfans told friends he was more likely to die in car crash than from the coronavirus. Turns out, he was right, reported the Star Tribune.
- Randal Thom, the unofficial ringleader of the “Front Row Joes” who’ve packed into the president’s rallies since 2016, was killed Monday afternoon while returning to his Minnesota home after taking part in a pro-Trump flotilla in Florida’s Jupiter Inlet. “Randal always said, ‘I have a better chance of dying in a car crash than I do from COVID,’” said friend Marthamae Kottschade.
- Kottschade said her friend was driving home from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after flying home from Florida, and police said they found evidence of recent alcohol use at the crash scene. State Police said that Thom was not wearing a seat belt.
