LAKE HOPATCONG, NJ – If you didn’t know it was supposed to happen today, this is your advanced warning for a possible do-over. The waters of New Jersey’s largest lake, Lake Hopatcong were about to boil today as a pro-Trump boat parade had been hijacked by anti-Trump protesters…probably with their dingies out.
It was shaping up to be a showdown on the high seas, possibly the first shots of the second American revolution as a naval battle of epic proportion was averted thanks to Mother Nature.
The organizers of the parade, the Sussex County Republican Club made the call after rain was in the forecast, but said they will definitely rechedule.
“Hello all – we have been looking at the weather and hoping that things would cooperate for us for today. It’s currently raining lightly, but the radar is calling for much heavier showers at the exact time of our parade and also the possibility of thunderstorms… rain is uncomfortable, but fine,” the Sussex GOP said. “Thunderstorms are unsafe, even the realistic possibility of them at the time of the parade. Out of an abundance of caution, and in consultation with law enforcement and safety personnel, we have decided that it is in the best interest of all participants and safety personnel that we postpone the event to an other day that will better allow for a safe day on the lake supporting our President and Country. We will schedule another date shortly. #Trump2020 #MAGA. We WILL ABSOLUTELY have another event and it will be bigger and better than this one was going to be.”
The weather or the cancellations didn’t stop Trump boaters from going on with the show, approximately 50 boats took to the lake and celebrated President Donald J. Trump. So at this point, it’s not sure if the cancellation was a ruse to scare away the lefties or if there will be a Trump boat parade 2 in the near future.

A few boatless liberal lefties showed up to protest from a bridge.
Due to thunderstorms, the Lake Hopatcong Trump Boat Rally was postponed. But it looks like a Biden Rally took place anyway!🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/YMLLQasFlo
