Georgia State Democratic Representative Vernon Jones tried to defy gravity, as well as his chances of contracting COVID, while surfing Friday at a Trump rally in Georgia.
At the meeting, held in Macon, Atlanta, Jones, who was not wearing a mask, was slapped over the heads of those in attendance as he raised his thumb.
Jones, who previously disapproved of facial covering and other measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, treated the assembled crowd as if they were in the mosh pit at a rock concert.

The meeting went against the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which warns against gathering in groups of no more than 10 people at a time.
Jones, a Democrat who has backed Trump, ended up giving a little pep talk before diving into the crowd.

President Trump has repeatedly appealed for black support, even as his convention repeatedly destroyed protesters linked to the ‘socialist left’ and ‘mafia rule’ after George Floyd’s death.
In August, Jones, a Democrat, delivered scathing remarks to his own party at the Republican National Convention, which he accused of exploiting black voters.
“The Democratic Party doesn’t want black people to leave the mental plantation they’ve had us on for decades,” he said.
“ But I have news for them: we are free people with a free spirit, ” said Jones, at a time when Biden is well ahead of black voters but hopes to build a critical advantage over Hillary Clinton’s achievements. where black turnout declined. from 2012.
Jones accused Biden of being “just talk and no action,” saying, “When President Trump tried to get the black vote, Democratic Party leaders went crazy!”
He expressed Trump’s support for historically black colleges. ‘That’s right. Donald Trump did that, ‘he said.
Jones has accused Democrats of “turning their backs on our brave police officers” during recent protests.
Like the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported, Jones acquitted himself after rape allegations in 2005 when he was De Kalb County Executive in Georgia. The woman was behind her story and the state agent said the charges were dropped because the alleged victim did not want to go to trial.
The woman who charged him told investigators that Jones raped her after meeting her and another woman at his home. At the time, the 29-year-old Jones acknowledged that the meeting was consensus, but did so to leave his home. Jones and his attorney denied the charges and made statements stating that the contact was by mutual consent.
