The Florida man who had a banner flown over Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach as a message to Trump’s supporters also said that the banner was meant for Trump.
Thomas Kennedy, an outspoken Trump critic and self-proclaimed Democrat activist, claimed that he and some friends from Miami paid $1,800 to have the banner flown over the residence.
On Wednesday, a banner that read “Ha Ha Ha…” flew over the house for a total of three hours.
In an interview with NBC6, Kennedy stated, “It brought me a lot of joy to do so.” This is something I would do again.
The banner appeared just days after the FBI announced they would be raiding the home of the former president.
Terrorist Investigation by the FBI
The search, according to the unnamed officials, was “deliberately timed” for a time when Trump would be out of the house.
Even though few specifics have been released, it is believed that the search is connected to an ongoing investigation into Trump’s purported removal and destruction of classified White House records following his departure in January 2021.
Despite the lack of details and Trump’s Truth Social statement that the “siege” was “unannounced,” Trump’s supporters gathered in front of the Palm Beach property to demonstrate.
What It Says on the Banner
Kennedy, who was in charge of coordinating the flight of the banner, claimed that it was meant to send a message to both Trump and the protesters who had gathered on the road and bridge in front of the island’s property and the rest of Palm Beach.
On Twitter, Kennedy said, “Do something better with your time than defending a billionaire grifter who doesn’t care about you.” This was directed at the Trump supporters who were still gathered outside Mar-a-Lago.

Videos showing Trump supporters on the go can be seen online, with some of them driving around with Trump signs while others wave flags to show their support.
“This is the treatment for would-be dictators like Trump. They are targets of your mockery and ridicule “Added Kennedy in another tweet.
Monday night, Trump took to social media to blast the FBI investigation, calling it a “attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024” and a “weaponization of the Justice System.”
He even went so far as to call the FBI’s investigation “prosecutorial misconduct” and “assault.”
Thomas Kennedy and Donald Trump were both asked for comment by Newsweek.
