Mardi Gras 2017 and Donald Trump!!
President Trump was made for Mardi Gras. He’s a caricature of a man in many respects. He’s the biggest cry baby to ever occupy the White House. Like a five year old he cannot control his temper, therefore he loses his temper a lot. He’s mad at a lot of powerful and not so powerful people. And his skin is orange!
There is no doubt in my mind that Carnival 2017 will be chock full of satirical stabs at our President. His intolerance, inconsistent policy pronunciations, use of Twitter to discuss/set policy, his crazy shock of blond hair, these are targets made for Mardi Gras parodies.
The first real parade of the season, the ribald and risque Krewe du Vieux rolls this Saturday in the French Quarter, Faubourg Marigny, and downtown. Among the Trump floats are our President as Jabba the Hutt; a tentacled, fondling Trump creature; and a homage to an unholy alliance between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Bottles of Trumpoff vodka will be handed out along with I Voted stickers starring Putin mimicking the George Rodrigue’s Blue Dog voting stickers that voters in Louisiana received after voting.
Here is the Donald at Carnival 2016!
