Baby Trump

:heeheehee

Plans to fly a giant inflatable figure depicting Donald Trump as a baby over London during the US president's visit have been approved.
Mr Trump is due to meet Theresa May at 10 Downing Street on 13 July.
Campaigners raised almost £18,000 for the helium-filled six-metre high figure, which they said reflects Mr Trump's character as an "angry baby with a fragile ego and tiny hands".
London Mayor Sadiq Khan gave permission for the balloon to fly.
The White House has been approached for comment.
On Twitter former UKIP leader Nigel Farage said the plan was "the biggest insult to a sitting US President ever".

Under the plans the inflatable will be allowed to fly for two hours on the morning of Friday 13 July.
Leo Murray, who is behind the crowdfunded idea, said: "[Mr Trump] really seems to hate it when people make fun of him.
"So when he visits the UK on Friday, we want to make sure he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him.
"That's why a group of us have chipped in and raised enough money to have a six-metre high blimp made by a professional inflatables company, to be flown in the skies over Parliament Square during Trump's visit."
Mr Murray said organisers initially "didn't get off to the best start with the mayor's office over this, who originally told us that they didn't recognise Trump Baby as legitimate protest".
However, he said City Hall had "rediscovered its sense of humour - Trump Baby will fly".
A statement on behalf of the London mayor said he "supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms".
Mr Khan's city operations team met organisers and gave them permission to "use Parliament Square Garden as a grounding point for the blimp".

To get any kind of message across to Trump, I think you first need to whack him over the head with a piece of 3 X 2...... to ensure that you have his attention. \:D/

Trump hates to be humiliated. I think this is a great idea.

If there's as many marching against Trump as turned out for the Brexit rally then he'll be bragging he had the biggest welcome for a very very important person that London has ever seen. :lol:

Is 2 hours enough flying time for the blow up Trumpy baby Betty? I hope they have great difficulty in reeling it in - or they set it free to roam the world. O:)

I like this kind of protest. Non violent and cheeky as all get up.
Perhaps the protesters in the street should join in a mass mooning to make sure the photographs show protest rather than adulation? The weather is warm enough right now.
If you don't have an ASIO file by now then you should be ashamed of yourself.

After all the cuts to our police forces and police stations being closed right across the country by this present government they now have extra pressure due to Trumps visit...........


Donald Trump's visit to the UK in the next week will put "unquestionable pressure" on UK police forces, the Police Federation has warned.
The US president will spend time in London, Windsor and Scotland during the two-day working visit.
Thousands are expected to protest and police forces from across the country have been asked to send officers to assist.
The Home Office said other forces can be "recompensed by the hosting force".
