Baby Trump balloon causes political furore

A 20ft balloon version of Donald Trump in a nappy will be floating over London later this week, causing equal amounts of joy and controversy throughout the UK capital.

The ‘tribute’ to the POTUS is down to environmentalist Leo Murray, who led the campaign to raise £18,000 through crowdfunding for the balloon. Leo and his fellow anti-Trump campaigners say the inflatable baby is a form of peaceful protest, depicting the President as an ‘angry baby with a fragile ego and small hands’, which reflects his character.

“We are just a small group of friends who set out to use humour to take a stand against the rise of racist and fascist politics both here in the UK and over in the US,” said one of the organisers Nona Hurkmans.

The giant orange infant will be floating above London on Friday, 13 July during the protests against Trump’s visit, which are expected to attract 200,000 people to Parliament Square in Westminster.

Many Trump supporters are enraged over the action, claiming it is juvenile and offensive. Journalist Piers Morgan described it as a ‘peurile stunt’, while former Ukip leader Nigel Farage said it was ‘the biggest insult to a sitting US President ever.’

PWW just hopes that they don’t forget to Pin It and Bin It afterwards.
