A new billboard in Colorado is criticizing Republicans by displaying the word “GOP,” but replacing the “O” with a Soviet-era hammer and sickle.
The billboard, located in Grand Junction, was created and put up by liberal blogger and author Anne Landman, local paper The Daily Sentinel reported Friday.
Landman told the newspaper that she put up the billboard after President Trump’s widely criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which the president refused to criticize Russia and sided with Putin’s denials of election interference.
“The things he did and said, trusting Putin over the conclusions of all of our own country’s intelligence agencies, blaming Americans for Russian cyber attacks on our election, making secret agreements, offering to consider handing Americans over to Putin’s intelligence agents to be interrogated, it was just unbelievable,” Landman told the Sentinel.
Landman said she initially paid $265 to put up the billboard for a week, but has since received $1,696 in donations and plans to put the sign in two other places.
I love to see my fellow bloggers causing a stir and calling out the Republican party for its bullshit.
And it’s not like this is even remotely far from the truth.
With the Republicans refusing to help shore up our defenses against cyber attacks, sabotaging the Mueller investigation at every turn, and some of the GOP House members spending the 4th of July in Moscow, what the hell are we supposed to think?
