In an Instagram story, Brittany called out Democrats for their hypocritical behavior. Some leftist supporters criticized Donald Trump for holding rallies that attracted thousands. They called the rallies “super-spreader” events for the COVID-19 virus. Aldean made her thoughts known.
“So it’s ok to gather by the thousands to celebrate in the street right now, but you can’t have a concert,” she said. “What if we call it a celebration?”
In her Instagram story, Aldean also revealed she supported Trump in the election. She posted a photo of herself wearing a Trump shirt. She also shared a cartoon of Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris pushing Biden off the cliff. The political cartoon supports a belief some have that Harris will attempt to displace the president during his term.
“I will continue to speak. For the people who message me and aren’t able (for fear of losing business or friends),” she said in a separate Instagram story. “It is disgusting to me that ‘Freedom of Speech’ applies to everyone but Republicans.”
Several Criticized Joe Biden for Not Discouraging Celebrations
Aldean isn’t alone in her criticism of Biden celebrations’ lack of social distancing. Several criticized Biden for failing to discourage wide-spread celebrations in the aftermath of the election announcement. In a speech on Sunday, Biden highlighted his COVID-19 plans.
“On Monday, I will name a group of leading scientists and experts as transition advisors to help take the Biden-Harris COVID plan and convert it into an action blueprint that will start on Jan. 20, 2021,” he said. “That plan will be built on bedrock science. It will be constructed out of compassion, empathy, and concern.”
CNN host Jake Tapper suggested supporters stop the celebrations, given the high rates of infections related to COVID-19.
“I hate to be a scold here, but we just had the highest day of infections in the United States,” Tapper said. “I believe yesterday was 125,000 Americans with new coronavirus infections. That was the third straight day of more than 100,000 infections. It’s good to see people wearing masks — although for some of them they’re slipping off their face.”

And suddenly people gathering in large crowds and not social distancing is no longer considered irresponsible by the media https://t.co/JisiiJJr78— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 7, 2020
