Indiana Parade Depicts Trump ‘Executing’ Hillary Clinton

The creator of an incendiary float in the 2016 Aurora Farmer’s Fair parade, depicting Donald Trump executing Hillary Clinton, has apologized, saying it was just a “spoof” of both personalities. “Could have had Donald Trump in the electric chair. It was a tossup,” Linkemeyer told WCPO-TV, despite the float causing controversy in the southeastern Indiana town of roughly 3,750 people. Seated on the float—which was adorned with Trump-Pence campaign signs—was a Trump impersonator pulling the switch on “Clinton” strapped in an electric chair. In the front of the float stood a black-faced Easter Island head, labeled as Obama, along with a preacher and the personified Death carrying a scythe.
