America is the land of free speech and expression. Two Montana men made full use of this by mowing a special message for president Trump in a field ahead of his upcoming visit to their home state.

The Great Falls Tribune reported that Kevin Crawford and Curtis Roe carved the message “FU45”, obviously intended to mean “f*** you president Trump", in giant letters in a field. The field is under the flight path taken by presidential jet Air Force One as it approaches Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

Crawford said simply protesting the president’s visit at his rally in Belgrade, Montana, Saturday afternoon, wasn’t quite enough for him. He also thinks it encourages him as "his wingnut base loves nothing more than to think they are pissing off a bunch of liberals who are protesting".

He said that, naturally, after a couple of beers the idea to mow out 60 foot letters seemed like the best plan.

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

At his rally in the state, Trump urged Montana’s voters to oust democrat Jon Tester. He blames Tester for blocking his nominee to run the Department of Veterans Affairs, White House doctor Ronny Jackson. As we all know by now, Trump loves a grudge.

That’s why I’m here. I’ve never forgotten it and it’s honestly one of the reasons I’m here so much. It’s a disgrace, what he did to that man.

Montana's protesters also placed large letters spelling out “impeach” and “liar” on nearby mountains.

Crawford said his main objection to Trump was his treatment of women and minorities, adding:

He shouldn't be anywhere near the White House.

It seems that not all heroes wear capes, but some drive tractors.
