About this method to their madness. They’ve pulled this same stunt whenever there’s a new sheriff in town, in this case a new president in the South.

Additionally The Great Successor needs to validate his leadership. Unlike his grandfather, he doesn’t have any military experience. This is his way of proving that he’s a force to be reckoned with.
After all, as Dennis Rodman told the world, “he’s an awesome guy.”
