This “vulgar” Maryland billboard is causing a real stink — for calling President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris “s–theads.”
The sign on Route 4 in Huntingtown shows the cartoon faces of the smiling commander-in-chief and his number two stuck on top of large emoji-style drawings of poop.
“DON’T BLAME TRUMP! YOU ARE STUCK WITH THESE TWO S–T HEADS!!!” it reads.
Sending the message home with two more poop images, the billboard is signed “from all of your deplorables in Calvert County,” referring to Hillary Clinton’s now-famous putdown of Trump supporters.
The crass sign, on private property and of legal size, does not appear to break any local laws — but has sparked mass outrage, especially among local Democrats.
“It’s just vulgar,” Jeanette Flaim, chair of the Calvert County Democratic Central Committee, told Fox 5 DC.
“Kids are going to school, and they’re going by it every day, and parents are driving their kids. We just don’t think kids should have to see that or parents should have to explain that,” Flaim complained.
She also told The Southern Maryland Chronicle that the “deeply disturbing” sign “does not reflect the values of our County, regardless of party.”
“And it certainly shouldn’t be what our visitors remember us for,” Flaim said.
Still, despite the outrage, the sign has still stayed put.
“There is nothing that we as county government can do for language that’s on a legal sign,” Board of County Commissioners President Buddy Hance told Fox 5.
“You know this country was built on the foundation of free speech, and sometimes we like what that free speech says and sometimes we don’t,” Hance said.
Fox 5 said it tried unsuccessfully to reach the person responsible for the sign, who was not identified in the reports.
