A New York man has been kicked out of another Disney park after another goofy stunt. Dion Cini—who was banned from Disney properties last year after riding down Splash Mountain with a "Trump 2020" sign at Disney World in Florida—unfurled another pro-Trump banner on the side of the Mark Train paddleboat at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., Wednesday afternoon, Fox 11 reports. In video posted on Cini's Facebook page, he and a companion drape a large "Re-elect Trump 2020" on the side of the boat, meeting reactions from park patrons ranging from happy to grumpy. He was then escorted away by security guards and a manager who met him at the dock.

Anaheim police say they were present, but nobody was taken into custody. Instead, Cini agreed to leave peacefully after receiving a trespassing admonition from security. "I saw someone putting something out on the side of the boat,” park visitor Jennifer Elliott tells the OC Register. "This is the happiest place on earth, that kind of political agenda doesn’t belong in the park. We hear about politics every day, I come to Disney to escape it." Disneyland says Cini was ejected not because of politics, but because the park bans the "display of signs and banners," which Cini had previously been warned about. (More Disneyland stories.)
