Tragedy Strikes Trump Boat Parade

What started out as a patriotic boat parade, to show enthusiastic support for President Donald Trump, quickly turned tragic as thousands of floating deplorables learned a lesson in physics which sunk five boats. Two are still on the bottom of Lake Travis.

Boat distress calls ‘almost immediately’

The final report of their investigation into what happened to sink five small watercraft at the Lake Travis Trump Boat Parade has been released by the Travis County Sheriff’s Office. There was no “foul play” they insist. The culprit was “wake generated by other boats.”

The weather was clear and calm on Lake Travis, near Austin, Texas, when the event began at noon on Saturday. Hundreds of boats attended, each decked out in red, white, and blue with flags flying everywhere as a patriotic show of support for President Donald Trump. Nobody expected large waves to suddenly appear out of nowhere on a small lake. One craft after another started taking on water simply because of “the large number of boats moving together.” It turns out that President Trump was a little too popular.

According to the Sheriff’s office, the calls for help started coming in “almost immediately.” Just 15 minutes after the parade began, the first distress call came in. They continued over the next two hours. “The distress calls varied and included: boats taking on water, stalled engines, capsized boats and boats sinking,” Kristen Dark with the Sheriff’s office explains. “All the distress calls were resolved without injury or loss of life.”

The Sheriff had lots of help standing by

One of the things that the unfortunate crews were thankful for was that “the sheriff’s office had bolstered its lake presence in anticipation of large crowds at the aquatic political rally.” Thanks to good planning, “the lake patrol unit was fully staffed and operational at the time.” They had more than enough deputies to “assist with traffic control and respond to emergency calls.”

In the course of responding to calls from 15 separate operators, the local tow company added “three additional reports of boats taking on water.” Five boats sank but “three have been towed out and two others remain on the bottom of Lake Travis.” Most of the boats were taking on water but even the ones which had been fully submerged “were able to be hooked up and towed before they sank to the bottom of the lake.”

One boat owner reports, “It was like an ocean out there. I’m surprised I survived it. We didn’t make it all the way around the parade, because it was just too much.” Danielle Severn describes how “the boats were mainly just teeter-tottering. A lot of them took on water by the nose. After that it was over, especially for the smaller boats.” Simply the large number of them “moving together” combined with the fact that the water level in the lake had been raised by recent storms, “likely changed the dynamics of the lake’s currents.”

  1. Maybe GOD was trying to tell them something about supporting Trump, who is about as religious as a stone. Now all of Trump’s relatives have testified to the fact that he is no way a religious person in any way. Possibly GOD got tired of Trump’s killing his creations.

  2. Boating on a reservoir can be tricky, because they are often deep and narrow and that can create dangerous side waves. Even experienced boaters need to be really careful, especially when there are a lot of other boats in it. It is fortunate no one drowned.

  3. Robert: And how would you know another person’s religiousness. Democrats like Pelosi and Biden say they are Catholics but Pelosi can’t take the Eucharist any more because of being for torturing babies to death for convenience of the woman carrier, I won’t call murderers mothers and so is Biden and other democrats. President Trump never aborted any of his babies and doesn’t back abortion. He also has prayer groups in his White House while democrats scream at him and Vice President Pence for having anything Christian in the White House and anywhere else in this country. As for his relatives, the only relative who hates President Trump wrote a book and she is pissed at him for her own personal reasons since he refused her something she wanted. President Trump won’t drink alcohol or use drugs due to a brother dying from that. He also has relatives not from his immediate family running his businesses, especially his Brother who just passed. His relationship with God is evident in all the people he has helped and kept it quiet like the homeless black women living in his hotel for years and she finally told the media she is an example of God’s presence in President Trump because she got tired of the democratic media painting Trump as the type of people the democrats really are.
