Women’s group to bring an­tiTrump mes­sage to col­lege games

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Fans at five big col­lege games on Satur­day will get pol­i­tics mixed in with foot­ball.

The games, all to be played in so-called “swing states” viewed as up for grabs in the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, will have fly­overs spon­sored by the na­tional women’s ad­vo­cacy or­ga­ni­za­tion Ul­tra­Vi­o­let Ac­tion with mes­sages against Repub­li­can nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump.

The group calls Trump “the most sex­ist, big­oted and un­qual­i­fied can­di­date in mod­ern his­tory.”

Ul­tra­Vi­o­let Ac­tion says it has com­mis­sioned air­planes to fly over the Wis­con­sin-Michi­gan game in Ann Ar­bor, Michi­gan, the Rut­gers-Ohio State game in Colum­bus, Ohio, the North­west­ern-Iowa game in Iowa City, Iowa, the SMU-Tem­ple game in Philadel­phia, Penn­syl­va­nia, and the Vir­ginia-Duke game in Durham, North Carolina.

The planes will all be trail­ing a ban­ner that says, “Trump Says Women R Pigs. Dis­agree? Vote.”
