Giant Inflatable Trump Rat Appears on Brooklyn Street on Election Day

A large inflatable rat made to the likeness of US President Donald Trump appeared on a Brooklyn, New York sidewalk on November 3, as Election Day voters took to the polls.

This footage posted by LeRoy McCarthy was taken from Fulton Street and Washington Avenue in Brooklyn. “Many people early voted in NYC, it was not the usual election day activity this year, but the Trump Rat is a sign of the voters feels in Brooklyn,” McCarthy told Storyful.

The large balloon had been a staple of anti-Trump protests in the days leading up to the election (see here and here, for example).
