Hundreds of President Donald Trump fans across Florida paraded their yachts in flotillas — or “Trumptillas” — on Sunday to celebrate his 74th birthday.

The boats set sail from the Sunshine State’s major marinas. They flew American flags, and some had Trump’s “MAGA” slogan emblazoned on the hull.

“They make him look like he’s a racist, but he’s not, and I’m here to celebrate him,” said Rachel Cramer, who was dancing on a boat leaving Fort Lauderdale to join a flotilla of dozens of other yachts headed for Boca Raton. “Also, happy birthday, Mr President!”

Cramer wore a mask with the Republican president’s face on it and a T-shirt that read, “Trump 2020 — fuck your feelings.”

Further north in Jacksonville, about 1,000 boats participated in the Trumptillas, according to official Duval County estimates.
