(Tea Party PAC) – You know, I remember a time not all that long ago when former President Barack Obama was regularly honored by boat parades floating down rivers and across large bodies of water like lakes on a regular basis. After all, he was the best president ever, right?
Wrong. On all accounts.
In fact, President Obama might have been the worst president to ever sit in the Oval Office. And seeing as how his competition consisted of both President Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, that’s quite an accomplishment.
No, there were never any boat parades held in Obama’s honor. But there’s been quite a few of them being held to support Trump and his America first agenda. It all started in Florida, but now it appears the phenomenon is spreading across the nation.
That’s got to bring a smile to Trump’s face.
Here’s more from BizPacReview:
Hundreds of Trump supporters participated in a MAGA boat parade in Charleston, South Carolina to kick off the unofficial start of summer on Memorial Day.
Does anyone remember hundreds of boaters paying tribute to President Obama or any other president? We don’t either.
About 700 people initially signed up, but the event swelled to thousands once amused spectators joined in to admire the massive boat convoy.
South Carolina resident Frank Collins said he was amazed by how many boats he saw in Charleston Harbor and the enthusiastic crowd that had gathered to witness the event.
“We just came out to see how big it was going to be and were overwhelmed,” Collins told WCSC-TV. “This is huge!”
You know what the main lesson from all of this is? The best way to build a legacy isn’t to fundamentally transform our country into some sort of false utopian, socialist nightmare, but to preserve the principles that makes it so awesome in the first place. If Obama really wanted to be remembered, to make true history, that’s the route he would’ve taken.
Instead, he became a puppet for those at the top of the progressive movement pulling the strings behind the curtain, and as such destroyed any opportunity to make his presidency one for the record books.
In the morning, spots on boat ramps quickly filled up as eager Trump supporters lined up to participate in the maritime parade.
“I got here at 8:30 this morning, but the entire parking lot was already full of boat trailers,” Betsy Logan said.
The event went off without a hitch because the Charleston Police Department, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the Department of Natural Resources made regular patrols to ensure public safety.
An aerial video of the MAGA flotilla captured the magnificent size and scope of the maritime parade.
While folks are making the most of a bad situation and showing support for the president — it is an election year after all — the left was full of individuals who were dismayed by the happy times these individuals were attempting to have and tried to rain on the parade.
Every party has a pooper they say. These folks definitely live up to that description.
Predictably, there’s always a stick in the mud to complain about people having fun. Keep in mind that all the parade participants stayed on their boats (which means they maintained social distancing of more than six feet).
Moreover, there’s almost zero chance of the coronavirus spreading outdoors, according to multiple researchers. But Debbie Downers always ignore science and bleat illogical, apocalyptic, left-wing talking points.
Take local Charleston activist William Hamilton. “My first thought is that it was remarkable that when Americans were dying at the rate of over 1,000 a day, and 40 million people are out of work that somebody thought it was appropriate to hold a big party,” Hamilton groused.
Guess we’re all supposed to be miserable and unhappy and not attempt in any sort of way enjoy life while COVID-19 is out and about, which it will be from now until the end of time.
People like Hamilton are nuts. Leave folks alone. Don’t like what they are doing? Don’t participate. Let other people do what they want. It’s none of the guy’s business anyway.
Here’s to seeing more of these displays of patriotism as the months roll on toward November!
