Hillary Clinton has canceled her planned celebratory Election Night fireworks display over the Hudson River that her campaign revealed Monday.
According to the New York Post, team Clinton has the necessary permit:
“They do have a permit for fireworks, but at this point we believe the fireworks is canceled,” NYPD chief of intelligence Tommy Galati said at a city press conference on Election Day security with Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner James O’Neill.
When asked by a reporter why the fireworks were canceled, Galati responded, “I cannot tell you that.”
Hillary was planning the fireworks for her potential victory, starting as early at 9:30 p.m. — a half-hour after the polls close in New York.
Hillary’s change in plans was also reported by TMZ:
The Clinton campaign had contacted the Coast Guard for permission to pull off a 2 minute long fireworks display over the Hudson River when the election results went final. The fireworks would be visible from the [New York City’s] Jacob Javits Center, where she’s holding her election night party.
But the Coast Guard tells TMZ … Clinton’s camp reached out on Thursday — 2 days after her fireworks plan was uncovered — to say it wouldn’t be shooting off the 10″ aerial shells, after all.
According to TMZ, the Coast Guard says the campaign offered no explanation for the cancellation of the fireworks. That of course will lead to endless “conspiracy theory” speculation like she knows she is going to lose.
