Maryland bridge that famously read ‘Surrender Dorothy’ altered to say ‘Surrender Donald’

A bridge in Maryland has been altered to tell President Trump to “surrender.”

Mad Dog PAC, a political action committee based in Washington, D.C., reportedly put up letters reading “Surrender Donald” on a historic bridge on Friday morning, Washingtonian reported.

The railroad bridge that runs across the Capital Beltway had been famously adorned with graffiti decades ago spelling out the words “Surrender Dorothy” because the view of the Mormon temple rising behind the railroad bridge looks like the city of Oz from the famous film “The Wizard of Oz.”

{mosads}Claude Taylor, who is claiming responsibility for the “Surrender Donald” graffiti applied by his PAC, told the Washingtonian the lettering is easily removable and shouldn’t cause property damage. 

Taylor said the lettering was installed by a group of volunteers for his PAC between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Friday morning. 

Taylor, who formerly worked on campaigns for President Clinton, said he was able to cover the costs for the stunt with the help of sales from his PAC’s Trump “traitor” balloons, which depict the president as an orange, inflatable baby.

Ann Price, who was reportedly involved with the original installation of the “Surrender Dorothy” lettering, told the Washingtonian she also approved of the idea.  

“I had not seen ‘Surrender Donald’ but that is hilarious,” Price said. “Very clever.”

The stunt came several days after Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, entered a guilty plea in which he said he broke campaign finance laws “in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office,” indirectly referencing Trump without explicitly stating his name.

The development surrounding Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, who once said he would “take a bullet” for the president, came minutes before former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was found guilty on eight charges of bank and tax fraud by a jury in Virginia.
