VALLEJO (KPIX) — Call it a “bra”zen show of support for Hillary Clinton by a Vallejo couple with a broad sense of humor.
When Thom and Honore McIlhatten decided to offer support to Hillary Clinton, they did it in a big and very public way.READ MORE: COVID Reopening: Uber Expects Employees At The Office At Least 3 Days A Week
They commissioned a local artist with Burning Man experience to create a combination art-installation/yard sign in the form of a red-white-and-blue brassiere with the words “We Support Hillary” above the cups.
“Oh, the pun is totally intended,” Thom assured KPIX 5.
The couple had seen a smaller version of the sign in Arizona during the primary.
“It did turn out larger than we expected,” Honore said. “It did become more of a photo booth, in case you wanted to come up here and have your photo taken in it.”READ MORE: COVID: Few 'Breakthrough' Infections Among Vaccinated In Sonoma County No Cause For Alarm, Experts Say
Made out of PVC pipe and chicken wire, the sign is meant to fill a void of humor in what has been a pretty tense political season.
“I think when we stop laughing at ourselves we’re in real trouble,” Thom says.
They wanted to make a big statement without creating a confrontation and, so far, reaction to the sign has been positive — especially from the neighbors, who say “Bra”vo! to living next door to such a fun couple.
One of those neighbors, Genevieve McQuilling, told KPIX, “We love living in a neighborhood with no HOA — where we’re all free to do what we want to do!”
The McIlhattens are serious in their support for Hillary Clinton and offer a united front in wanting to see the first woman elected president.MORE NEWS: Curry's 42, Green's Triple-Double Lead Warriors Past Thunder In Rout
