The perfect metaphor for the Trump presidency.

A parade for President Donald Trump gets dicey when multiple boats sink on Lake Travis. According to first responders, nobody was injured.
At around 2:50 p.m. the TCSO confirmed via tweet that they had responded to multiple calls made about boats being in distress at the parade. They also confirmed that several of those boats sank on the lake.
As of Saturday night, the Travis County Sheriff‘s office said they were still sorting out just how many boats went under. A spokesperson explains it’s unclear how many calls came in, how many boats sank, how many were towed and how many people needed rescuing largely because others on the lake stepped up to help before some first responders got there.
Around 11:30 a.m. Saturday supporters of the president flocked to Central Texas wanting to take part in the weekend’s boat parade on Lake Travis whether they were getting in the water or not.
Boats with Trump flags jetted across the lake for most of the day Saturday, but the wake became too much for some.
I’m not going to lie, I was laughing so hard at this I was not sure I would be able to type out a post.
I mean after the week that Trump just had this is almost the perfect cherry on top.
Watching these idiots bailing like crazy while their boat festooned with giant Trump flags sinks beneath their feet is like something out of a Mel Brooks movie.
I love it.
