Irony: A lot of the same people who love Confederate statues hate participation trophies.

a woman in Phoenix, Arizona, has decided to take the next logical step and turn the Confederate monument in her hometown into a giant participation trophy.

 

Rebecca Olsen McHood, who clearly has some arts and crafts skills, told The Phoenix New Times that it was President Donald Trump’s latest remarks that prompted her to create the banner.

 

“I was just so outraged by Trump’s press conference. I thought, I have to do something.”

 

In addition to the “2nd place” and “Participant” banner, McHood added a ribbon at the top which states “You lost, get over it.”
