‘Trump’ puts ‘Clinton’ and ‘Obama’ behind bars in parade float that everyone’s talking about

A parade in Highmore, South Dakota celebrating the 50th Annual Settler’s Day had one float that stole the show.

The float that got the most attention showed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in prison with President Donald Trump standing outside the case, his hands up as if presenting the prisoners to the crowd.

“I just wanted to put it out there, it was just my view that I feel that they should be charged, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton,” Jeff Damer, the float’s creator, told KSFY.

Damer revealed there was some hesitation because he did not want to come across as racist by throwing Obama behind bars.

“I had to think about it with the mask of Obama, coming out as racist,” he said.

The float caused quite a stir among the town’s citizens, with some arguing such a political statement should have never been allowed in the parade.

Highmore Mayor Vikki Day said city officials have received numerous messages from citizens objecting to the float’s content, but she believes the float’s message is protected by Damer’s freedom of speech.

“My stance, and the city’s stance is that every person has a right to the first amendment, to express his or her speech, and the expressions of it, we do not regulate that,” Day said.

South Dakota blogger Kevin Woster has been one of the float’s most outspoken critics.

“Well when I saw that, to me it was objectionable,” Woster said.

Damer has been in contact with Woster about the float in an attempt to find common ground.

“He was civil the whole time, he tried to moderate his page, cussing, insults, this and that, he deleted a bunch of some really hateful things,” Damer said of their engagement about the float’s content.

“We’ve stayed in contact, and I think we got to talking pretty good, and I think we’re making some progress,” Woster said.

Damer told KSFY that his biggest regret is putting his town in a negative light.

While the float may have caused some controversy in Highmore, people have been taking to social media to celebrate the clever float and its message.

“Some people are still under the illusion that there is equal justice for all with the evidence against Hilly and the evidence coming to light that Barry tried to use the power of the Federal govt to over turn an election, jail is too good for these two,” one user wrote on the the message board site Trucking Board.

Another added, “Oh the horror, the inhumanity. Safe space where are you.”

“Beautiful right here!! A parade that I woulda happily gone to! We can see South Dakota has not bowed down to the #Dembats “PC” bullsh*t and censoring of the good fight!” a Twitter user responded to a story about the float.

Another replied, “Love this parade float! How funny!”

Another humorously hoped Attorney General William Barr was behind the float.

“Hopefully AG Bill Barr designed this particular Parade Float?” the user wrote.
