Well this certainly isn't your everyday political advertisement. Paul Snover, a Western Slope cartoonist, unveiled a billboard in Grand Junction this week depicting Republican candidate Donald Trump in a coat of armor. He's battling a dragon symbolizing "libtards" and "RINOs" (Republicans in Name Only) with a sword labeled "constitution."
“People are offended too easily these days and need to try to be more open minded,” Snover told KREX-TV said of the billboard, which is on Highway 50, one of the busiest areas in the city.
Snover caught flak in 2010 for another billboard -- that one featured caricatures of President Barack Obama as a terrorist, gangster and more.
This isn't the first time this week Trump has been characterized as a dragon-slaying hero.
