A flying baby Trump! What will they think of, next?

❝ Protestors have been given permission to fly a giant balloon portraying Donald Trump as an angry, orange baby over the U.K. parliament during the president’s first official visit to Britain.

❝ Named “Trump Baby,” the 20-foot-tall blimp will be airborne when Trump is in London next week.

Nice to know that longtime PINK FLOYD fans are alive and well in London.

    “Say Goodbye, It’s Independence Day” by Jonathan Freedland (New York Review of Books July 3, 2018) http://www.nybooks.com/daily/2018/07/03/say-goodbye-its-independence-day/ “On July 4, Americans celebrate the day in 1776 when they declared their independence from the tyrant across the Atlantic, a distant, mercurial figure, by turns feared as an autocrat and written off as a madman. Britons, however, are likely to be thinking less about King George III than about the upcoming visit to the UK of Donald Trump, and their hope that the UK government will issue its own declaration of independence from a reviled American president.”

    The Trump Baby Blimp Is Coming To America https://www.mycentraljersey.com/story/news/politics/2018/07/15/baby-trump-bedminster-gofundme/786555002/
    “Didier Jimenez-Castro of Hillsborough, New Jersey, got together with some other local organizers and raised enough money to fly a Trump Baby blimp near Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, where he spends some of his week-ends at the taxpayer’s expense.
    Others across the country are also raising money for Trump Baby blimps. Areas with campaigns include Silver Spring, Maryland; Austin, Texas; St. Louis, Missouri; and Farmington, New Mexico. See photos @ https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/trump-baby

    Trump is going to the LSU-Alabama game on Saturday. So is the ‘Baby Trump’ balloon. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/11/07/trump-is-going-lsu-alabama-game-saturday-so-is-baby-trump-balloon/
    A GoFundMe page has raised several thousand dollars more than the $4,000 needed to bring the balloon to Alabama and set it up, organizers say. The blowup caricature of a scowling, orange-faced president in a safety-pinned diaper has delighted activists since its first incarnation — 20 feet tall and filled with helium — went up for Trump’s trip to the United Kingdom last year.
    The blimp will be the latest conspicuous show of opposition to greet the president at a sports event, after long boos at a World Series game and mixed reactions at a UFC match in New York. Donations toward the display hit targets within hours of the fundraiser’s launch, in a testament to Baby Trump’s reliable appeal to the president’s critics.
