In case you missed it, earlier this month, someone radically out of step with their community erected a Hollywood-style sign to Donald Trump.
Right off the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles:
Someone put up this Trump sign overnight along the 405 freeway, near the Getty. This is right in the middle of what’s largely considered one of the most liberal cities in America. pic.twitter.com/KlSdao4mwk

RedState’s Jennifer Van Laar relayed, “Commuters in very blue West Los Angeles were surprised Tuesday morning to see a large ‘Trump’ sign, styled similarly to the iconic ‘Hollywood’ sign, along a heavily-trafficked portion of the 405 Freeway near the Getty Museum.”
It didn’t last long — mortified motorists dialed 911 to report the “visual distraction.” They insisted the eyesore be taken down.
There’s little information about who placed the sign, but Lauren Wonder, chief public information officer for the California Department of Transportation, said it was on private property.
For that reason, she said, Caltrans workers “laid it down so it wasn’t a visual distraction” but did not completely remove it.
“This was a life and safety issue because there were concerns about distracted driving,” Wonder said.
The ol’ “issue of public safety” gag.
Well, it appears safety’s in peril again: Yet another harbinger of horror’s appeared on a West Coast mountainside.
And yes — it again overlooks an interstate.
NBC reports five giant letters spelling T-R-U-M-P have been raised above the 91 Freeway and Green River Road.
"Trump" sign in the same well-known "Hollywood" sign style appeared again…this time in Riverside County. It wasn't immediately clear if it was the same sign, but it bears a resemblance to the one that appeared earlier in Oct on a hillside near the 405 https://t.co/z7UgdeuAhA

As observed by Fox News, though the signs are similar, “it was not immediately clear who was responsible for either.”
Such antagonizing antics aren’t exclusive to the Golden State: Across the continent last week, the Big Apple got bitterly bannered by — in the words of the Daily Mail — the “Largest Trump flag ever”:
Feast your eyes on political poison:
We love all of you so much! If I was there today (I’m campaigning in Michigan and Minnesota) I would come down and give you all a big hug! Thank you for the support of @realDonaldTrump

One participant of October 14th’s “Operation Flag Drop” explained, “We want jobs, not mobs.”

And it ain’t just the cityfolk who are constructin’ pro-Trump protest.
In Tennessee, a man used bails of hay to make a statement:
Adrian Powell, the owner of a family-run business, said he wanted to make a unique display to support President Donald Trump. https://t.co/3t0AFiqwHN

Back to LA’s newest roadside attraction, if the mere word is a hazard to everyone on four wheels, I can’t imagine what kind of traffic treachery the socialist state may face if Donald John Trump actually wins the election.
It’s uncertain where we’re headed…
But on November 3rd…Buckle up, California.
