I had a unique opportunity to be up close and personal with one of the candidates for POTUS this past weekend. Well, not really “up close and personal,” but in the same room if that counts.
Okay, maybe it was up close and personal but it was also a packed house, full of people.
Those cute collegians with the big phones were super skilled on social media and loving the backdrop of Trump with the King of College football in Oklahoma, Barry Switzer.
Here was my lame attempt at same….clearly, I have a lot to learn.
Before the candidate arrived, we ran into some fun friends of ours from all sides of the political aisle.
I should have tweeted this pic as a political bag of Skittles (haha) because we represent a wide variety of political color, commentary and three different political parties.
But not as much color as was seen across the street.
I snapped a quick pic of the snack sized bag of protestors who set up shop across from the event. You know I couldn’t wait to photograph them.
I kept thinking… I was in a college town and this is all you’ve got?
The guy holding the Trump Lies poster wins best sign award. I am positive he was cloaked in a hybrid Bernie T-Shirt considering the irony of that statement and hope he finds a more lucrative career with ESPN Gameday.
Seriously, the mom in me would have loved to have walked across the street and talked with these kids just to see where they were coming from and why they took time out from the massive tailgating and pre-gaming taking place to hold up some signs and protest. However, at this point I was already tagged as a hostile, so I stuck with our plan and headed into the event.
In my next life, I am going to be a journalist…just saying.
