Omaha– A parade float featuring a Hillary Clinton lookalike wearing a prison jumpsuit and being pelted with water balloons left some in Arcadia, Iowa, laughing and others grumbling Saturday. The Clinton character was inside a cage hauled through town during a parade celebrating the centennial of the Arcadia Fire Department, according to photos published by the Daily Times Herald newspaper of nearby Carroll, Iowa. Clinton is the Democratic candidate for president and the first woman nominee of a major party. The Carroll paper reported that Kyle Julin of Manilla, Iowa, and two other area men, Josh Reetz and Adam Corky, built the float. Corky served as the Clinton impersonator. “Only one group booed us,” Julin told the Daily Times Herald. “My consensus from that was 99 percent to 1 percent liked it.” The Carroll paper’s story depicted a young boy running into the street, taking aim and hurling the balloon toward the float, and then walking away with “the prideful smile of a job well done.”
An article from The Onion? Nope, just western Iowa. A place where they play for keeps. Zero chill in that part of the country. Small town parade? Check. Camouflage four-wheeler? Check. A man dressed like Uncle Sam driving said camouflaged four-wheeler? Check. A presidential nominee look-a-like in a makeshift cage dressed in a orange jump suit that they let small children throw water balloons at? Mother fucking check. Welcome to the terror dome, Hillary. Also known as Arcadia, Iowa. Sure. Donald Trump is having a really rough week but even his publicity wasn’t this bad. Whenever your opponent is mocked with a look-a-like in a cage getting pelted with water balloons, I’d say you won the week. The weirdness of this election knows no bounds.
