BILLINGS, Montana — President Trump must have been watching “Game of Thrones,” when he drew up the latest draft of his travel ban.
Customs agents blocked a 30-foot-tall, fire breathing robot dragon from entering the U.S. to perform at a monster truck rally in Montana on Friday.
Organizers of the No Limits Monster Trucks show at the Rimrock Auto Arena in Billings blamed a paperwork foul up for why the car-eating Robo Dragon was barred from the country.
As it turns out, the owner of the dragon, Barry Parkin, lives in Canada and had last been in the U.S. in January for a show in Grand Islands, Nebraska.
But as he headed to Montana for Friday’s show, border agents wouldn’t let him pass.
“At 1:30 in the morning I get this text, which woke me right plum smooth up,” Ed Beckley, President and CEO of Checkered Flag Promotions, which was staging the event, told the Billings Gazette.
“I’m very sorry to have let the great fans of billings down,” Parkins said. “This will be resolved shortly and I hope the underprivileged boys and girls group that missed me stopping by to display Robo Dragon will let me make it up to them in the near future.”
Beckley said the show went on as planned as the rest of the monster trucks had gotten to the event just fine.
