It looks like the Trump campaign in Texas had some tough sailing yesterday. It appears that several boats that were participating in a pro-Trump rally took on water and sank in a lake close to Austin.
Here’s the story from USA Today:
AUSTIN, Texas – Multiple boats participating in a parade in support of President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign sank Saturday on Lake Travis, located west of Austin, according to the Travis County Sheriff’s Office. Multiple small boats needed rescue after they began sinking due to choppy water conditions as the boats travled together on the lake, according to the office. No one was injured as a result of those incidents, according to Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services officials. The lake is known for being difficult to navigate at times, and large wakes could be seen during Saturday’s boat parade. Travis County Sheriff’s Office “responded to multiple calls involving boats in distress during the Trump parade on Lake Travis. Several boats did sink,” the office tweeted Saturday.
Trump’s campaign has been taking on water for some time now. So maybe this boat parade fiasco in Texas is a preview of things to come.
And for Trump supporters, maybe it is time to head to higher (moral and ethical?) ground.
