Fans at five big college games on Saturday will get politics mixed in with football.
The games, all to be played in so-called “swing states” viewed as up for grabs in the 2016 presidential election, will have flyovers sponsored by the national women’s advocacy organization UltraViolet Action with messages against Republican nominee Donald Trump. The group calls Trump “the most sexist, bigoted and unqualified candidate in modern history.”
UltraViolet Action says it has commissioned airplanes to fly over the Wisconsin-Michigan game in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Rutgers-Ohio State game in Columbus, Ohio, the Northwestern-Iowa game in Iowa City, Iowa, the SMU-Temple game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the Virginia-Duke game in Durham, North Carolina.
The planes will all be trailing a banner that says, “Trump Says Women R Pigs. Disagree? Vote.”
