There are patriots….and then there is J. R. Majewski.
If you haven't seen this yet, be prepared to stand up and cheer!
While others are sitting idly by, Majewski decided it was time to show the world his support for Donald J. Trump….and do it in a big way.
The end result is simply spectacular!
Take a look:
The local Port Clinton News Herald had more on the story:
Politically inspired yard signs are nothing new, but one Bay Township resident has taken it a step further by turning his entire front lawn into a massive banner for President Donald Trump.
It took J.R. Majewski about 120 gallons of paint to create the 19,000-square-foot banner, which spans nearly the entire length of his long, triangular front yard on West Elmore Road in Bay Township, just west of Port Clinton near the Portage River.
The effort was not an entirely new experience for Majewski, who around the same time last year in early July painted a huge American flag in his yard as both a patriotic gesture and a way to support his fellow military veterans.
But this year, he went even bigger.
Originally, Majewski said, he had planned to paint the well-known National League of Families POW/MIA flag, but later found that there could be issues with the amount of black paint needed for the project.

Majewski uses a biodegradable, chalk-based paint that will not harm the environment.
After speaking with fellow members of a local veterans group, many of whom are also Trump supporters, Majewski said he decided to go for it.
“You see and hear a lot from the president on his support of the military. New weapons, new equipment, new technology — all of those things matter,” he said. “I think as a veteran, it’s highly appreciated.”
Majewski served in Afghanistan and said he can remember going more than 40 days without a shower because they had no running water.
Since completing the project, Majewski said, he has gotten nothing but positive feedback, hearing support from the Ottawa County Republican Party and state Rep. Douglas Swearingen, R-Huron, of the 89th District, which includes Ottawa and Erie counties. Swearingen visited the display.
“We’ve had a really good turnout,” Majewski said. “A lot of my neighbors have come by and I’ve had a lot of positive feedback.”
Since completing this massive display supporting President Donald Trump in his front lawn, J.R. Majewski said he has gotten nothing but positive feedback.
Majewski also has a few signs around the display, noting that he can still be friends with people even if they are not Trump supporters.
