Farmers, after a few beers, send profane message to Trump — and it could be seen only from the sky

Montana farmers Kevin Crawford of Bozeman and Curtis Roe of Belgrade knocked back a few beers Saturday and decided to create their own protest sign for President Donald Trump, who was scheduled to attend a rally that day at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, the Great Falls Tribune reported.

The pair got to mowing the grass on Roe's land under the landing approach Air Force One would make, the paper said, measuring by fence posts.

The message? "FU45" — in lettering 60 feet tall and 150 feet across, the Tribune said.

Crawford told the paper it seemed like a better plan than protesting at the campaign rally because Trump's "wingnut base loves nothing more than to think they are pissing off a bunch of liberals who are protesting."

"It's just to express displeasure or disgust — or I could think of a lot of other adjectives," he added to the Tribune. "My approach was, we said what we had to say with a lawnmower."

Not the first time

When Trump took a mid-October trip to Missoula — a liberal enclave in deeply red Montana — town folk added a peach to the university's "M" for "M-peach," the paper said:

The Tribune said others added large fabric letters to the L on Mount Jumbo, turning it into "LIAR":

Crawford told the paper his main objections to Trump are "his treatment of women and minorities and his treatment of anybody who doesn't agree with him. He shouldn't be anywhere near the White House."

Roe added to the Tribune that he has another five acres at the ready in case Vice President Mike Pence comes to town.
