Have the Tarrant County District attorney's office is the governor's order is not enforceable because he does not allow people to be detained. Judge Glenn Whitney says.

What is it that they're looking at? Who Will you know? They're looking at smell test because a study has found that cove in nineteen patients were twenty seven times more likely to lose their sense of smell relative to people who don't have it, and it turns out.

My pleasure. How quickly did this turn Political with one side, saying that this is just something that the Democratic Party has done because it's a Democratic mayor. Well in our things. Sylvester Turner probably did both his part of the city of Houston, as well as the Republican Party a favor since the optics of holding a five or 6000 person convention in the city with escalating Copan 19 infection rate was was bad for the Republicans as we move towards November, So I think really Governor Abbott and Republicans who want to win in November. Did Oh, Sylvester Turner that a gratitude. Are we hearing that they're going to try to make this virtual or what's the next step now? Well, now they're our only real option is a virtual convention, which will be very similar to what the Democrats did, and it's relatively easy to get done what they need to be done with just tickly and bureaucratically via an online convention. The downside Republicans will have is that they have a relatively short time frame. To put that virtual convention together, So they're going to have to work hard over the next week to get the logistics in place so that they'll have a functioning virtual convention, although hopefully from a logistics perspective, they at least were considering this is a possible plan B. I was just going to ask. How do they put together a virtual convention? Because when you think about conventions you See a lot of faces. I guess they would all have to be in attendance on one big zoo meeting with hundreds or thousands of people. Well, you can have you can have different types of participants in a zoom can scale up. Are down to allow enough people to participate, either watching things more where it's more like a streaming video and then for smaller groups that can actually have participation with a moderator in control, So it's very feasible. The Democrat saw the Democrats do it last month, and it went off without a hitch. So do you think this sets a president for any other conventions? Now, as we are seeing the pandemic continue. I mean, they're saying That That is the reason why it's being canceled right? Because the pandemic continue. So were there any other conventions right now that we know of on the radar? No, I mean there was one down in San Antonio, the high school. Ah, there are high school coaches that was going to occur, But that was cancelled. And the reality is no one wants to be holding large conventions in the midst of a pandemic is a bad idea. And the Republican Party actually made a mistake when they are released. The leadership did when they voted to continue to hold it a few weeks ago by I think it was a 40 to 1 20 votes. There was really no good grounds to hold it other than two per symbolic reasons and the nature of the pandemic and the reality. They also didn't know.
