Peach(es) Protest

  [vote for,

While I was trying to do the cryptid crossword - and I'm dammed if 9 down clue 'sounds like bottle bank' isn't the act of a warped mind - I thought of something else. See below.

OK, this is a bit iffy, seeing as I’m not an American, but the current Prez does have a something of a dislike of the word “impeachment”.

So sending him peaches, flying peach colour flags, wearing peach colour armbands etc might be cut down the Ozymandias complex, assuming he has the self-awareness to get it?

       I said SA... oh. He wrote "cryptid" for what I presume was meant to be "cryptic".

       Err, no, I am trying to make a cryptic crossword, it's a bugger to get it right. Like 'chupacabra', 9 letters...

       //I am trying to make a cryptic crossword//   

       Don't forget THYLACINE. Maybe "Your old story about mains supply" ?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 17 2019

       The fact it's been photographed in Hobart zoo suggests that's not strictly a cryptid.

       //not strictly a cryptid// True to an extent. However, given that it's allegedly extinct since 1933, I think extant thylacines would count. There have been reported sightings from time to time. Not in Hobart Zoo, obvs.

       Trying to fathom peach and mint together as an ice cream flavor. Maybe.

       Some peach colour fabric winging it's way to Nancy Pelosi. God knows what's she going to do with it.

       I thought that last one was going to be somewhat difficult. I guess knowing they're all cryptids helps a lot—not very many Russian lake monsters to check.
notexactly, Jun 21 2019

       No, but there is the Caspian Sea Monster ... <link>
