Group releases pigeons wearing MAGA hats

Eyebrows were raised in Las Vegas this week thanks to reports of pigeons wearing politically motivated headwear.
Back in December it was reported that an anonymous individual had been affixing tiny cowboy hats to pigeons in Las Vegas - a stunt that was later copied the following month when pigeons wearing tiny sombreros started to show up in the streets of Reno, Nevada.

Now it seems that an anonymous group known as Pigeons United To Interfere Now (PUTIN) has released a number of pigeons donning either Donald Trump wigs or red MAGA hats.
Unlike with the cowboy hats and sombreros however, this latest stunt appears to be entirely political with the group releasing the pigeons as a show of support for Trump who is currently in town.

According to PUTIN's founder 'Coo Hand Luke', the pigeons themselves are all rescue birds.

Exactly what impact the unusual headwear will have on their wellbeing however remains unclear.

Amazing they got pigeons to wear those hats.  I have only seen sheep wear them before.

Too bad Antifa will have to kill all these pigeons in order to exterminate all the bigotry. Intolerance will not be tolerated. Pigeons were never great. Tear down their bird houses.

Morons! I see there was a  ban on this. Are they still doing this? This was in 2016, can not find anything more recent.

At least they didn't give them tiny "comb-overs" to go with the hats, that would have just been a bridge TOO, imo.

So was this a Pro-Trump move, or an Anti-Trump move? I can see this stupid coming from either side.
