Trumptillas, or Trump-themed flotillas, have cruised the nation’s waterways in force for months, earning wide attention. But it’s not just the organized parades. There’s a sense that Trump owns the ocean. Boats with Trump flags are A Thing. Boat flags for former Vice President Joe Biden, say those who spend a lot of time on the water, not so much.
If you’ve seen one of the Trump boat parades, then you know, it is a lot of boats. There are even more flags. If one Trump flag on a seafaring vessel is good, it would appear 10 flags on a boat is the stuff that makes America great (again).
The parades on the water are a high-visibility spectacle of support at a time when traditional rallies are tricky due to the pandemic. They chew up newscast b-roll and make for good photos.
The widest-covered news of the Labor Day weekend may have been five Trump boats sinking on Texas’ Lake Travis. The sheriff said it was due to such an “exceptional” number of boats moving together that they “generated significant waves.” If you’re watching cable TV, it’s clear the battle for ocean supremacy is no longer Michael Phelps racing a shark, but the 2020 election.
Some see the parades as indicative of an enthusiasm gap between Trump supporters and those of Biden.
Michael LaRosa, Dr. Jill Biden’s traveling press secretary hosted a massive Joe Biden car parade complete with lawn signs, horn honking, and the media. In fact, there were more media photographers snapping photos than there were cars. Reports estimate that roughly three cars participated in the parade. Guinness Book of World Records has yet to confirm whether or not this was the largest Joe Biden car parade on record.

Biden’s in a world of trouble. He’s going to get annihilated on election night via a very red electoral map. The only thing that can prevent that is if they foul up this election with millions of fraudulent mail-in ballots.
