What's that up in the sky?

It's a bird!

It's a plane!

It's a banner flying over former Republican President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence mocking him for getting raided by the FBI.

That was the scene Wednesday at Mar-a-Lago after someone hired a plane to pull a banner over Trump's residence just days after the FBI searched his home and seized several boxes of documents believed to contain classified documents that pose a threat to national security.

And since Trump might be in *a lot* of trouble—like federal offense-level trouble—the banner's message was short and sweet.

It read:


See video of the stunt below.

The gag was pulled by Thomas Kennedy, a writer and Democratic organizer from Miami.

He and some friends raised $1800 to have a pilot pull the banner over Mar-a-Lago on Wednesday, two days after the Monday morning raid.

Making the stunt even funnier is the fact that at that point, we didn't even know anything about the gravity of the situation—the FBI had yet to speak out about the raid.

It wasn't until the following day that we found out the FBI was specifically seeking not only classified material, but top-secret documents pertaining to America's nuclear weapons program—both potential felonies.

But even without those details, it was already obvious that "HA HA HA HA HA HA" pretty much said it all--to many it felt like the first domino falling in the collapse of Trump's dictatorial ambitions.

Kennedy obliquely referenced this in his tweet, writing:

"Here is video of our banner saying HAHAHA flying over Mar-a-Lago today."
"This is how you treat wannabe authoritarians like Trump. You ridicule and mock them."

And people on Twitter were absolutely here for it.

In an interview with USA Today, Kennedy elaborated further on why he and his friends pulled the stunt.

“We thought it would be funny."
"From our perspective, Trump is a bully and we wanted to give him a taste of his own medicine.”

Money well spent.
