ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl suggests that covering President Trump's indoor rallies amid a pandemic is more dangerous for reporters and their families than covering a war.

In remarks published in The National Journal on Tuesday, Karl noted the evolution of the White House press corps' stance on attending indoor campaign events.

Some news outlets kept their reporters outside the building when Trump held his indoor Tulsa rally in June, but during the indoor rally Sunday in Las Vegas, it was “the first time that everybody stayed out except for the pool (reporter)," he said.

Karl, who has reported from war zones, compared those experiences to the dangers of attending crowded indoor events during the pandemic.

“This is not like embedding with the Marines in Fallujah. It is like you are taking your family with you to Fallujah," he said.

That comment drew criticism on social media.


"No, no it’s not," combat veteran Alex Plitsas told the ABC News reporter.

"I covered the rally. I also went to several casinos just as packed with just as few masks. Were all of those people also killing their families?" The Federalist correspondent David Marcus asked.

"Pretty insane thing to say, Jon," Daily Caller reporter Henry Rogers reacted.

"That's pathetic," National Review contributor Pradheep J. Shanker wrote.

"This is embarrassing," The Post Millennial staff writer Chad Felix Greene similarly said.

"AND THE OSCAR GOES TO..." The Blaze's Jessica O'Donnell quipped.

Health Update

And now for everybody’s favorite monthly (more or less) feature: my M-protein levels. This is a marker for the cancer load in my bone marrow, and the lower the number the better. This month it’s basically flat and holding at a pretty reasonable level, so that’s good news:

The bad news, as usual, is that I continue taking the evil dex, which has lately turned into the chaotic evil dex. I take it twice a week, and sometimes it puts me to sleep and sometimes it keeps me awake. That would be OK if there were any way to predict which it would be, but I haven’t figured anything out on that score. And that’s not even the worst. During the day, I very reliably crash two days after taking the dex, and lately “crash” means a deep sleep for upwards of six or eight hours, even though I’m taking a tiny dose. It’s mysterious as hell.

POSTSCRIPT: For those of you who have asked after my mother, she’s doing great and is nearly 100 percent recovered from whatever her mystery ailment was. While my sister and I were taking care of her I tried to introduce her to the wonders of American fast food, but I fear that it was for naught. Now that she’s cooking for herself again, I’m pretty sure she hasn’t so much as ordered up a pizza from an outside vendor.
