Despite Slide in Polls, Clinton Already Has Giant Celebration with Fireworks Planned for NY

-By Warner Todd Huston

So sure is she of winning the White House, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has already contracted for a giant fireworks-filled celebration to be held in Manhattan and set to kick off only 30 minutes after the polls close in New York, source say.

The Clinton campaign has sought permits and informed city officials that a barge will be positioned in the Hudson near Manhattan’s Javits Center to be used as a launching platform for a massive fireworks display on Election Day, according to the New York Post.

The paper also reports that a New York Fire Department Marine Unit has been told to be on hand to monitor the fireworks display reportedly to last up to two minutes.

The company Team Clinton hired to oversee the fireworks show, Garden State Fireworks, is the same company Trump hired to entertain guests at the opening of the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ.

One NY Firefighter, though, didn’t like the idea of having to be involved with the fireworks show, even as a safety monitor.

“This will make it seem like the firefighters endorsed Hillary,” the source said.

Of course, with Trump surging in polls all across the country, one New York police officer noted that all these plans for a great victory could blow up in Hillary’s face.

“It’s a little presumptuous of her to plan on winning. I guess she put in for this before Friday,” a NYPD detective told the Post.

Indeed the most recent ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll has Trump in the lead 46 to 45. Clinton has fallen seven points in the last week alone as voters learn more about the latest FBI investigation into her illicit use of a private email server in contravention of our national security laws when she was Obama’s Secretary of State.
