A huge campaign sign in Gainesville, VA is causing quite a stir. The anti-Hillary Clinton sign is billboard sized and hanging on a busy street on a private businesses property.
The billboard reads “Trump vs the Wicked Witch of the West.”
The implication seems to be that the “Wicked Witch” is Hillary Clinton, although that is not actually stated anywhere. DaNeen Wallman of Gainesville responded rather politely.
“I think everybody has their opinion,” she said.
“[Hillary] is not a witch,” Kim Cockerel said. “That’s my personal opinion.”
Cockerel, among others, wonders why politicians attack people instead of their policies.
“[The sign] is offensive. You shouldn’t comment on a woman like that,” said Subash Kunaruh.
“She’s a person, she’s a grandmother, she’s a mother. You don’t need a billboard up there making her out to be a witch,” added Cockerel.
Others said, “lighten up” or “it’s just a sign” or “that’s politics” and of course “free speech.”
“I don’t think it’s offensive at all. That just doesn’t offend me,” admitted Wallman.
What do you think? Offensive or funny? Here is the sign:
