A Maine man who had his Trump 2020 yard signs stolen this year came up with a huge solution to prevent it from happening again.
Brandon Gordon has turned his Lewiston home into a Trump-ified attraction, complete with dozens of different kinds of Trump yard signs, a massive Trump flag and inflatable Trump caricatures -- all protected by an active electric fence.
“It’s over the top. I do go big or go home sometimes,” said Gordon, who explained that, in terms of President Donald Trump and politics, he “agrees with everything he’s doing.”
The fence works -- even singing a pumpkin recently. So far, no one's been back to steal another sign.
The display, made up mostly of items bought online, has certainly gotten attention with drivers on Pond Road, who regularly honk at and taking pictures of the house, as well as occasionally directing obscene gestures in its direction.
“It’s a little annoying because people stop, blow their horns. But he’s entitled to his opinion,” said Andre Paul Bergeron, who lives in a house across the street and is a vocal supporter of Joe Biden.
“I hope he doesn’t get his way because we’ll be in real trouble,” said Bergeron, who views Trump as a threat “to democracy.”
That said, Bergeron also emphatically supports Gordon’s expression of his views
“If you don’t want to stand up for what you believe in, what are you good for?” he said.
And Gordon's home is far from the only one on Pond Road that's got political signage out front. Yards along the street sport signs for Trump and Biden.
Asked how long he would keep the decorations up, Gordon said that he expected the president to win re-election and would keep them up for a period of time after Election Day.
He’s also purchased Trump ornaments for a Christmas tree.
