Opinion by Patty McMurray at 100 Percent FED Up–
The enthusiasm for the re-election of President Donald J. Trump is like nothing America has ever seen. For months, cars, boats, and even golf carts adorned with Trump flags and banners have been lining the streets, sidewalks, and waterways across America, as they proudly show their support for President Trump, the ultimate D.C. swamp drainer.
This Labor Day weekend, boats covered in Make America Great Again, and Keep America Great messages, will make their down the Potomac River, as part of the “National Capital Trumptilla” boat parade.
Washington Times reports- their route will glide past some of the most historic sites in the nation — not to mention the White House.
“Washington, D.C. isn’t exactly Trump country but there’s enough Trump supporters around to make some noise. Like Ronald Reagan said, ‘a rising tide lifts all boats,’” LaDonna Hale Curzon, a local volunteer, tells Inside the Beltway.
The boaters will begin their journey at the Wilson Bridge, some seven miles south of Washington on the Beltway in Northern Virginia, then proceed at “no-wake speed” to the Lincoln Memorial, minding the 18-foot clearance of bridges that span the Potomac. Larger boats will continue up the Anacostia River, which heads east.
The Trumptilla event is being organized on Facebook.
Here are the details:
