Yikes! Someone created a huge electric Trump sign in Port Richmond out of holiday lights
And I’m definitely referring to them as holiday lights because it will almost definitely piss off whoever put this up…
Ok, while this isn’t exactly surprising, it is deeply disappointing. This is, after all, the neighborhood that saw a pro-Cliven Bundy message erected in 2014. For anyone in need of a reminder: Cliven Bundy was the man who earned his notorious 15-minutes of 24-hour cable news network fame after he wondered openly on live TV whether black Americans (though he used different words) weren’t just better off as slaves. And, of course, there’s that home with the confederate flag painted on it as well. Although I suppose to be completely fair to Port Richmond, both those happened in what is technically called ‘Olde Richmond,’ on the edge of Port Richmond proper. This Trump sign, however, sits at Allegheny avenue and Salmon street on a busy roadway in the heart Port Richmond, next to an I-95 exit/onramp and around the corner from a Wawa.
This comes the same week Donald Trump takes a slight lead over Hillary Clinton in a new Quinnipiac University poll of likely Pennsylvania voters. Double yikes!
To all those who think that it’s really just the middle of our state that’s producing loud-and-proud Trump supporters, I’m sad to report that I don’t think it’s all that simple.
