And as of Wednesday, the rotating billboard with a scowling Trump, was still staring at motorists traveling between San Francisco and Oakland. However the discrepancy over whether the billboard was up or not had many people scratching their heads. News trucks were sent out. Erroneous stories were published.
Zipp later said in an email that there was an “internal miscommunication” about whether the billboard was staying up or not. The miscommunication came about 3:30 p.m. PST on Tuesday, according to Madison Donzis, spokeswoman for the California-based Courage Campaign, which paid $1,500 to have the billboard up from Monday until Sunday.
