If you’re an Angeleno, don’t be surprised to see a massive display of Trump and Confederate pride blazing down your street any moment now, ’cause one is on the way.
A parade of lifted trucks was spotted Saturday, all departing a Smart and Final parking lot in Santa Monica … one after another in what seemed like an endless line of diesels. They all had flags flying from their beds too — Trump 2020 ones, Confederate battle flags and U.S.A. flags too, of course. It’s clear … these folks were making a statement — a statement of day’s past.
Eyewitnesses tell us there were at least 75 trucks packed into the lot, and we’re told this seemed planned and staged. Each truck had at least two people, so the number of bodies rolling these puppies out was in the triple digits … upwards of 300.
The good news is that right out the gate, there wasn’t too much of a scene or ruckus … unless you consider the noisy departure itself to be rowdy. It kinda is, frankly.
How’s this … Mississippi banned the Confederate flag this week, while some people in L.A. still clearly embrace it.
