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.

Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department banned from the building: report
The Associated Press reported Thursday that President Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department was barred from entering the building.
The report revealed that Heidi Stirrup, "an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller," was pressuring Justice Department staff to hand over sensitive documents and information about alleged "election fraud" and other issues that are important to Trump.
Attorney General Bill Barr told the AP on Tuesday that there was no widespread election fraud or voter fraud, as Trump has claimed for the past several weeks since losing the 2020 election. Trump alleged that Barr “hasn’t looked very hard."
Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money
In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.
When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.
"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."
‘I’m utterly embarrassed’: Michigan Republican admits Rudy Giuliani ‘waded into the realm of insanity’
Michigan state Rep. Aaron Miller, a Republican, this week accused Rudy Giuliani of entering the "realm of insanity" with his testimony to lawmakers in Michigan.
Miller made the remarks following Giuliani's wild testimony to the Michigan House Oversight Committee.
"I’m happy to thoughtfully listen to evidence and claims and that was what today was supposed to be about, but Mr. Giuliani’s final statement waded into the realm of insanity," Miller said, according to The Detroit News. "He made wild and broad partisan insults for several minutes that had nothing to do with the election, and it was frankly unacceptable, shameful, and pathetic and distracts from any evidence that we might hear."
