Trump supporters flock to buy the goods Friday in Mason City

Trump supporters flock to buy the goods Friday in Mason City

MASON CITY – Get your Donald Trump gear while you can.

A hastily set up Donald Trump store on a vacant Mason City lot is selling out of merchandise, the men running it say. Two men in a van with North Carolina plates set up their “store” Friday and have sold at least 100 Donald Trump yard signs at $10.00 apiece.

“I got 400 flags here, too,” one of the men told NIT this afternoon as he granted an interview.

“Stuff’s been moving fast,” the same gentleman (who did not give his name) explained, while his compatriot hovered nearby, nervously watching his business partner talk on camera. The man admitted he did not have permission to be on the privately-owned lot.

“We give the property owners free t-shirts if they come by,” he said. “They always give us the ‘thumbs up.'” County records show the property at 401 South Federal is owned by Carl and Margaret Anderson.

The store seemed to have a short supply of goods left for sale, even as two carfuls of Trump supporters pulled up. A couple of tables had cammo hats, t-shirts and other items stacked up.

The people in the cars answered in the affirmative when asked if they supported Donald Trump.

“Hell yes!” one lady said. “So does she,” pointing at a young child that was with them. “Go Donald Trump,” the child said for the camera.

The store will be open till perhaps 5:30 PM Friday night, then the men are clearing out to head back to North Carolina to re-stock. They said they will be back if Trump or Pence come back to town.

    Marquardt’s a pussy grabber supporter I see. Figures. Now I really hope Trump gets creamed bad in the general. Shake the neo-con-alt-right editor up a bit.

    Latest polls show Hillary Clinton at 90% in Mississippi and the city of Detroit Mi. Guess what! Welfare in those two location is the same 90%. Great job Demorat manure spreaders. (speaking of that -the welfare farmers might have to get off their azzes and go to work.

      I am surprised that someone with your limited intelligence can spell hatemonger. You must have used auto spell check because you are not smart enough to do it on your own.

    So basically, Billy Bob and Bubba from Mayberry illegally set up on private property and sell BS trinkets to a few NI rubes and then blow town, got it.

      They are doing the same thing some farmers are doing when they sell corn. I can see the city requiring them to have a permit, so how do you know that they don’t have a permit? You just assume that because they are trump supporters that they are doing it illegally, trump supporters are usually the ones getting beat up which means it is the democrats that are the criminals.

        David- did you watch the video? He pretty much at admitted he did not have permission to set up and sell goods in the parking lot. He also didn’t seem to care that he didn’t have permission to set up and sell goods in that parking lot.

        Did you even watch the video David?
        I did not assume anything, try to keep up David.
        Bubba or Billy Bob stated that they DID NOT have the property owners permission to be there.

        And seriously, you are trying to equate local farmers selling corn to a couple of back woods hucksters from Hooterville?
        Get real David.

          I admit that I didn’t watch the video, my computer is running so slow the video wouldn’t load. I was just trying to give him the benefit of the doubt.

        Selling Iowa home grown sweet corn on street corners a few weeks out of the year is a far cry from this dog and pony show David. What Trump circus memorabilia did you buy or are you still waiting for your first of the month welfare check to arrive?

          Welfare checks come from Clinton/Obama fool. Get out of the dark and into the light and you will know this.

          No, David is on the government dole because of his so-called military service and his so-called disability.
          Although I could see where he may be qualified for mental issues.

    That weed infested lot is an eyesore for the city. At least somebody is getting some use out of it.
