Thanks to Monique Z. for sending just after 1pm.

“Trump supporter crashes into D.C. Public School bus in front of police station. 6th and NY Ave. Right next to the police station. I went & got him some officers to help, he was in a rush to get his vehicle out. School bus was parked thankfully without any kids on it.”

At this time it’s not clear what music was playing. But, seriously, updates when more specifics are known.

    Hahahahaha at the caption. Too good, in an awful way.

  • hanna

    i am going to hell, but i am cracking up over this. HAHAHA

  • Ben

    This is some intense literary foreshadowing, right?

    • anon437

      Haha :)

  • KCK

    LOL. This guy was puller over in NYC: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=28d_1484654426

  • Blithe

    This seems horribly emblematic.

  • A.

    Why did the liberals placed a school bus in his path? Coincidence? I don’t think so…

    • KKS

      ^ HA!

  • Marie

    In case anyone is interested, he has a gofundme page ($450 toward 50K) https://www.gofundme.com/trump-unity-bridge-tour

    And he came through NYC before making his way to DC http://gothamist.com/2017/01/17/all_must_cross_bridge.php

      The description on that GoFundMe page is amazingly incoherent.

      It’s billed it as a “Unity Bridge”… but it’s unclear how exactly it’s bridging any gaps:
      “The Presidential Trump Unity Bridge & Trump Mobile represents the Grassroots movement & silent Majority in our country. It is an “America 1st” themed in Red White & Blue, playing patriotic music. Bridging the gap, Uniting Americans as 1 proud nation highlighting patriotism to all American people, as the focus of this float which is a tribute to President Trump [. . .] Our goal is unity, helping spread the word the way it was intended to be. [. . .] We have pride in our country and want the constitution to be read as the founding fathers intended it to be. With all the division this political season, we felt it was important to bring to the forefront issues that unite all Americans together. The Trump Unity Bridge is indeed doing that bridging the gap on issues that will unite all Americans together as one under a Donald Trump Presidency.”

        Did you have an expectation that it would make sense? Did you see what this guy is driving around the country?

      • Bronanon

        Maybe it was written by the same person who handles the Dr. Bronner’s soap labels.

        • Anon

          Hahaha, so I guess I’m not the only one who tried reading that claptrap.

        • Halfsmoke

          All one! All in one! Dilute! Dilute!

      • Q

        Since when are they silent?

        • Mamasan

          One can wish…

        • CAH

          Since when are they the majority? Hillary got 3 million more votes.

          • timmyp

            Yes! Why has no one else made this point? They keep claiming to be the silent majority but I’m not sure they understand math.

  • PJL

    It was Mr. and Mrs. DeVos wasn’t it?

    • I Dont Get It

      No grizzly bear was harmed!

    • Hill Denizen

      Man! I was going to make the same joke!

  • Anon

    Lock him up! Lock him up!

  • Good thing I have healthcare, or I might die of embarrassment.

    • AJSE

      You are crushing it with the comments today — keep up the good work

  • Dan

    Its difficult to drive a big rig like that with tiny hands…

    • Mamasan

      He’s got the whole world in his hands. Oops, there goes the Western Hemisphere…HA HA HA sob….

  • DupontEast

    So I’m guessing he’s just riding around DC with that thing and expecting it to magically create unity? Like that anti-abortion/anti-Obama truck I’ve seen circling the Capitol for years is supposed to save souls?

  • quincy

    A metaphor for the Secretary of Education (Betsy DeVos) hearings…..

  • JayDC

    This is a perfectly symbolic of the next 4 years!

  • ohlawd

    these are the folks behind this monstrosity:

  • jaseguy30

    This guy was just outside my building on K. I gotta say- if unity is the goal, they are failing. He was blasting Lenny Kravitz “American Woman” and filming people’s reactions. If the goal was trolling, then they are #winning.

    • Truxton Thomas

      I’ve avoided eye contact for far less.

    • MsSunshine

      Another song that’s not rah-rah-America.

    • Michael Pierce

      The shitbirds are rolling into town with nothing to do till Friday. I’ve seen a few examples around the inauguration perimeter downtown.

      • JoDa

        I got screamed at yesterday when leaving work because I didn’t hear someone ask me for directions from several feet away and to the side of me. My headphones are BRIGHT PINK. It was obvious why I didn’t hear them. I’m so glad I’m leaving town in a few hours…

  • Ben

    I know what song it was – “I Fought the Law and the Law Won,” obviously.

  • Cleveland Park runner

    Is he okay?
    In everyone’s rush to laugh at him, this seems to have gone unaddressed.

    • PJL

      The picture suggests that the only thing that hit the bus was his ridiculous trailer/float thing.

    • DC

      If we was just spotted on K Street 10 minutes ago, then I’d assume he’s fine.

    • kanon

      It says the OP went to get him help and that he was “in a rush to get his vehicle out”, so he seems fine, at least in terms of any impact from the collision.

    • Anon

      “Is he okay?” – no, he is most certainly not okay

      • wdc

        But without comprehensive mental health care in the US, what can be done for the poor man?

      • FridayGirl


  • OP Anon

    He does realize that he won’t be allowed to be anywhere near the Inauguration venues, right?
    That monstrosity is going to rack up a ton of parking tickets LOL

    • Anonymous

      I doubt he has any plans to park it. Just gonna drive it around and around and around and… He will eventually have to gas up though, so I’d like to see that.

      • timmyp

        We should point him in the gas station down off of Virginia near the entrance of Rock Creek. Once he sees the price he’ll have to stop driving so much.

  • PJ25

    Uh oh.. Looks like the professional inauguration attendees have stared to come to town. I wonder what the per diem is.

  • SC

    I have a video of this monstrosity… it was playing “This Land Is My Land” at 12pm

    • NH Ave Hiker

      …which was written by Woody Guthrie as a protest song. Whoops.

    • Mr. Magoo

      Woody Guthrie was revolving in his grave at 12:01 p.m.

      • FridayGirl

        I love that he was revolving, not just rolling. Hahaha….

  • Anonymous

    Darnit just past it parked on 12 and Constitution with driver taking cell phone videos.

  • JohnH

    Ummmm the website on the back of a trailer is the guy’s GoFundMe page. OF COURSE he’s asking for other’s people money to do what he wants.

    • timmyp

      Judging from the secure our borders sign on the wagon I bet he’s railed against free handouts too. Irony?

      • Anonymous

        Handouts from the government = bad. Handouts from other citizens = perfectly fine. You’re still a lazy f*** but you’re not the government’s problem. It’s actually intellectually consistent, but I still think people should do useful work rather than useless work.

      • Mr. Magoo

        I’m sure Mexico and Canada would be delighted if we secure our borders so that this guy can’t get out.

  • navyard

    THIS is why Residential Parking won’t be enforced this week? Ugh!

  • T Street

    Around 7:30PM tonight the same guy tried to go through the Mass Ave/16th Street underpass and could not get through b/c it was too tall. He caused a jam reversing into traffic.

  • LexDC

    The same “Unity Bridge” truck (or a similar one) crashed into a black car last night around 7:30 p.m. near Thomas Circle on Mass Ave. The truck realized it couldn’t fit under the underpass, so stopped and started backing up into oncoming traffic. The black car stopped to give it space, a young teenager in a tuxedo got out of the Trump truck to wave and yell, signaling an impending crash, and the truck continued to back up and crash into the car behind it.

    Then the driver of the Trump truck, also in a tux, got out and started yelling at the driver he crashed into, saying the other driver should have known what was about to happen.

    Meanwhile, a big guy just walking by mooned everyone, flipped off the Trump truck and yelled profanities. It was an interesting night. Popville, email me if you’d like photos.

    • I have some photos going up in 5 minutes from other readers. Thank you!!
