Wake of other boats in a pro-Trump parade on a Texas lake caused 5 boats to sink

TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas — The wake generated by other boats caused five boats to sink on a Texas lake during a boat parade in support of President Donald Trump, according to the Travis County Sheriff’s Office.

The weather on Lake Travis, which is west of Austin, was calm Saturday, but the large number of boats moving together produced large waves, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

“It was like an ocean out there. I’m surprised I survived it. We didn’t make it all the way around the parade, because it was just too much,” said parade participant Danielle Severn said. “The boats were mainly just teeter-tot-erring. A lot of them took on water by the nose. After that it was over, especially for the smaller boats.”

The event began at noon Saturday, and the sheriff’s office says they began to receive calls “almost immediately.” The sheriff’s office responded to 15 distress calls, and a local towing company said there were “three additional reports of boats taking on water,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Of the five boats that sank, three have been towed out and two others remain on the bottom of Lake Travis, the sheriff’s office said.

“Most boats that were taking on water, or even fully submerged,” the sheriff’s office said, “were able to be hooked up and towed before they sank to the bottom of the lake.”

  1. Of course this CNN article is about the bad not the good. What about all the other successful Trump boat rallies in the U.S.? New Jersey, Florida, D.C. and Georgia. Over 4,000 boats at Lake Lanier alone. Where’s crazy Joe’s boat rallies? Oh wait….there are none. lmao.

    1. What about them? Were you there? No, you weren’t there because you are not an elite, rich white man. But, supporting Tramp makes you feel superior to who you really are and whatever BS you want to prove.

      1. Alberto in another tranny moment. The Mia schizo personality ranting like a loser and idiot. You missed the point you stupid witch. Your crazy Joe doesn’t have any boat rallies like President Trump because no one has any enthusiasm for him. He will lose this November.

  2. The Pussygrabber is in no mood to be president anymore. Says what for? Generals don’t like him, veterans dead or alive are losers, no mainstream news outlet likes him(you too, Fox), economy in the toilet, everybody who ever worked for him hates him(except Sarah Huckabee who is probably still getting paid by Trump),this pesky Pandemic won’t go away like magic. His sister thinks he is a psycho liar, his niece says he is a sociopath. Who would have thought being president is so hard? Well, let’s see. If you are a Racist, clueless, Souless, rich boy who has always had his way in life, then yeah, being president is REALLY hard!

    1. Your TDS makes you look so stupid. The pussy grabber is Joe Biden the pervert. Ask Tara Reade. He likes forcefully fingering vaginas and then smelling his finger. Now go wax his ass and scrubs his balls. Trump Pence 2020!
