With all the bad news of the last few months, it’s good to remember that America is still a wonderful place full of wonderful people.
Hundreds of boaters in Florida threw a floating parade in honor of President Trump. Some called it a “Trumptilla.” They floated from Jupiter to Mar-a-logo and back again on the Intracoastal Waterway.
The parade was organized on Facebook by Carlos Gavidia and participants were encouraged to decorate their boats with their favorite “Trump” flags. Gavidia, a huge Trump fan, had wrapped his boat in stars, stripes, eagles, and “Trump,” in response to a neighbor’s complaint about his “Trump” flag on his dock.
The owner had put a Trump flag on his dock and the people across from his house complained to the club. Admirals told him that he had to take the flag down. The guy got pissed & sent his boat to get wrapped. This was a video of him bringing the boat home after. @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/3BFTdJwwWm

The parade was eight miles long and around 1,200 boats participated.
The president tweeted his appreciation of the watery tribute.
Thank you very much to our beautiful “boaters.” I will never let you down! pic.twitter.com/Ot5Ffnjj9G
