Such bad taste: Philly’s New Year’s parade makes a mockery of US president, performers dance around with ‘pee tape’

The citizens of the Democrat stronghold of Philadelphia, a city ranked as being one of the worst for happiness and income inequality, celebrated New Year’s Day by mocking President Donald Trump.

During the city’s Mummers Parade, an annual folk festival in which local clubs compete in one of four categories (comics, fancies, string bands and fancy brigades), one group performed a skit that depicted the president teaming up with Russian President Vladimir Putin to fight Uncle Sam.

The skit by the so-called Lobster Club began with someone dressed like the president walking out from a pseudo-Oval Office as Madonna’s popular 1985 song “Material Girl” blared from a loudspeaker.

Watch the bizarre performance below:

Over the course of the performance, the president tangoed with a shirtless Putin, handed Uncle Sam to the Russian president in a move meant to signify Trump’s alleged treason, tossed aside a “P” tape that represented the allegations from the debunked DNC dossier and was eventually arrested by the FBI. Meanwhile, Uncle Sam was saved by Gritty, the city’s mascot.

The performance was, for all intents and purposes, a real-life portrayal of every Trump Derangement Syndrome-suffering liberal’s dreams. They genuinely believe special counsel Robert Mueller will one day soon indict the president for colluding with Russians to affect the 2016 election.

Mueller’s investigation was formed because of the dossier, which contained an accusation that Trump once paid Russian hookers to urinate on a hotel bed previously used by former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama — and that Putin had tapes of this urination.

Since those dreams (or delusions of grandeur) go against the wishes of the nearly 63 million Americans who voted for the president during the election, they weren’t well received by some on Twitter.


There were however a large number of local voices on social media who praised the Lobster Club for its performance and expressed feeling proud of their city.



Philadelphia is a Democrat stronghold that’s voted in line with the Democrat Party for decades. Not since 1952 has the city benefited from the leadership of a Republican mayor.

Democrats seeking election or reelection representing the Philadelphia area reportedly won every seat during the midterm elections last year. The same thing happened in 2016. Whereas two-thirds of Pennsylvania voted for Trump, “Philadelphia went overwhelmingly blue.”

What remains unclear is whether this penchant for Democrat policies coincides at all with Philadelphia’s record as a town terrible for those seeking happiness and a good paycheck.

A report from WalletHub published in 2017 revealed Philly is one of the unhappiest places to reside in America, ranking 142nd for emotional and physical well-being. A report from Bloomberg published last year likewise found Philly ranks as the third worst city in America for income inequality.

These rankings coincide with reports showing that those who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome tend to be unhappy, anxious people who need a great deal of counseling.

Lobster Club performers looked plenty happy while performing their anti-Trump skit.
