A message targeting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump distracted some Rose Parade spectators.
Skywriting above the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California had people looking away from floats, and at the sky!
The message read, “America is great, Trump is disgusting.”
Stan Pate, an Alabama real estate developer, claimed responsibility for the message.
“There’s no place for him,” Pate told CBS News. “He needs to go back to one of his tall towers and build buildings and whatever else he does. He’s a despicable man.”
Pate happens to be a donor to Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign. According to FEC filings, Pate gave $5,200 to the Rubio campaign in early 2015.
