Police in the town of Wilmington, Massachusetts are seeking a supporter of President Donald Trump who hung a ‘TRUMP 2020’ sign from live electrical wires on Thursday.
In a tweet posted early on Friday, the Wilmington Police Department said it is “looking to speak with the individual who decided to hang a sign across Main St. early this morning by tying it around live electrical wires.”
Photos posted by the police show a set of letters that spell “TRUMP 2020” strung on electrical wires, which caused the power lines to droop down significantly closer to the street.
“Not only did they run the risk of electrocution, but the low hanging sign caused a hazard to passing motorists,” the department commented.
Tweets replying to the police’s message didn’t offer any information about the person who hung the sign — but they did contain plenty of mockery.
“It’s really a shame that Darwin missed this opportunity,” wrote a Twitter user who calls themselves “Ray the Drone Guy.” “You can’t fix stupid.”
“Seems about right for the candidate,” wrote another.

Anthony Scaramucci: ‘Trump is really losing it psychologically’
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci on Tuesday suggested that President Donald Trump is suffering mental problems after losing the 2020 election.
"Trump is really losing it, psychologically," Scaramucci wrote on Twitter. "His followers don’t get that being a 'loser' is just about as bad as actual death to him."
"He is now a 'loser' in his daddy’s eyes," he added. "All he can do is act out. I wonder how it will end."

The trio started off the Daily Beast podcast with a hilarious dramatic reading of the Washington Post's bombshell report about the president's inability to comprehend how he lost the election, with Conway laughing at the mention of Trump's "fragile mental state."
