It doesn’t really matter that President Trump isn’t planning to visit New York City any time soon, they are ready just in case he pops in for a little R&R at Trump Tower. A road sign on a bridge in Brooklyn proudly lights a wonderful welcome to the President should he decide to make an appearance. I know I called it “festive” but it’s actually another F-word and more specifically the sign reads: F*ck Trump. That should effectively end the Trump presidency, huh?
The New York Post reports:
Someone rejiggered a giant DOT light-up billboard in Brooklyn to say “F–k Trump.”
The sign, which has been sitting on the corner of Eagle Street and McGuinness Boulevard at the foot of the Pulaski Bridge for about a week, previously warned of bridge closures. But on Thursday, it had a different message.
And according to The Gothamist, this really is part of an effort to take Trump down:
A traffic sign at the base of the Pulaski Bridge in Greenpoint briefly joined The Resistance…
The Gothamist also reports that a worker from the NYDOT showed up to take the offending message down, but didn’t know how. Some chump can easily hack this sign, but the department responsible for it has no idea how to unhack it? Maybe send the guy with the technical knowledge to actually fix things next time. It’s unclear at this point if anyone from the city was able to shut the sign down. I’m sure they’re in no big hurry.
The question is, who is responsible for this? The first and most obvious answer is actor Robert De Niro. “F*ck Trump” is his catch-phrase and that’s exactly what the sign says. In June at the Tony Awards, De Niro received a standing ovation after he took the stage and said simply “f*ck Trump.” Also, De Niro may be a little mad at the president because Trump gave him the nickname “Punchy” for being a semi-coherent punch-drunk imbecile. Then again De Niro is pretty old and probably can’t even use his smart phone, let along hack a road sign.
It could also be the work of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Not only does he hate America, he despises our President. Cuomo is locked in the primary fight of his life against some idiot actress so maybe this is part of his campaign to hold on to his power. Nothing appeals to the base like a profane massage attacking Trump.
I think the real answer is that the sign wasn’t hacked at all and is part of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Resistance outreach program. It’s even possible that de Blasio has these signs rotating message like “f*ck Chik-fil-A” and “f*ck groundhogs.” The cool thing about this is President Trump owns a ton of real estate in NYC so his tax dollars are going directly to paying for this sign.
