Giant Trump Baby Balloon Takes Flight at British Parliament

In its centuries of history, its unlikely the British parliament has ever seen anything quite like this—the controversial blimp shaped like Donald Trump, crying and wearing a diaper, has taken flight outside the majestic Palace of Westminster. The giant balloon stands at six meters tall and features "small hands, a tiny mobile phone and a giant nappy/diaper.” It was inflated at 9:30 a.m. local time (4:30 a.m. EST) and will fly up to 30 meters during a huge protest march through London while the President holds meetings with Theresa May and the Queen. Trump has complained that the giant balloon has hurt his feelings, telling British tabloid newspaper The Sun: “I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?” I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London.” The blimp flight was authorized by London mayor Sadiq Khan, who Trump described as having done a “terrible job” looking after the English capital.
