A group of Tulsa, Oklahoma teenagers pulled off a brilliant prank at a Donald Trump rally that captured the true meaning of the Republican presidential front-runner’s slogan.
Last Wednesday, more than a dozen high school students snuck a banner that read “Trump Makes America Hate Again” into Trump’s campaign rally and even snapped a picture of the sly protest action before the joke candidate noticed and kicked them out.
"Get outta here, kid," he said. "See, he wants to be politically correct. … But I like it, I like it, I hope they do a couple more today, because the only way those cameras, which are crooked as hell, will ever turn to show this packed arena, with 15,000 people, is if we have a protester, right? So I love protesters."
Who would have guessed that Trump actually loves the negative publicity? The multi-billionaire clearly is a glutton for attention.
Trump’s die-hard supporters booed the teens and stomped on the banner as the group was escorted out.
One of the students involved, Noah Miracle, told Tulsa World they organized the action because they believe it is important to stand up for their convictions.
“We’ve really had the idea of freedom of speech drilled into our heads in school since a young age, so this was really an opportunity to apply these things to the real world,” Miracle said.
“It was important to remind Trump and his supporters that while different political ideologies are completely acceptable, hateful and divisive rhetoric is not,” he added.
Despite Miracle’s wise-beyond-his-years’ words, conventional society somehow believes the next generation is doomed. They are already standing up to intolerance in a creative (and hilarious) way!
