Krewe Of ’tit Rex Trumps Hate But Hates Trump In Mardi Gras Parade

Well, he had it coming. And with at least one float, you could make the argument he came close.

The tiny Krewe of ’tit Rex was big on satirizing our golden new president, Donald J. Trump — the “J” apparently stands for “Jesus Effing Christ a Lot of People Don’t Like Me Down There” — in a parade held Saturday (Feb. 18) and starting on St. Roch Avenue. The parade itself in some ways feels like it’s out-grown itself. The overflow of humanity makes it difficult to appreciate the intricately lit and designed shoebox-size floats, with amateur and professional photographers and videographers jockeying for position along the sidewalk of the neutral ground.

But in skewering the new president (and many others), the krewe proved once again that big things come in small packages.

New Orleans' smallest parade may not have had many tiny hands clapping. The krewe of ”tit Rex chose a theme about taking a nap, but many floats depicted nightmares, many of them featuring President Donald Trump. In one dark vision, Lady Liberty slept with her head in an oven. In another, titled "Tyrant-asaurus Wrex," an orange dinosaur stood atop the White House next to a massive crane with a swinging wrecking ball. The float creators distributed as throws: free tickets to the future, tiny flags and orange golf balls with a yell mop of hair combed over the top.

'tit Rex, New Orleans' tiniest Mardi Gras parade, which rolls on Saturday (Feb. 18) at 5 in the Marigny, is trouble. For openers, how are you supposed to start a sentence, or a whole story for that matter, with an apostrophe? That's just the beginning.

'tit Rex floats are modeled on the shoe box floats that New Orleans school kids used to make, and sometimes still do. 'tit Rex floats might be little and cute, but they have smart, adult, sometimes gnarly themes.

'tit Rex was founded by a bunch of artist-types in 2009, in part as a tongue-in-cheek taunt to the big, bland superkrewes that seemed to dominate Mardi Gras at the moment. Small was subversive.
