A week before President Trump’s working visit to Britain, the mayor of London has allowed an additional participant in the city’s welcome reception: a giant orange balloon of the president depicted as a baby in a diaper.
Ironically, the group behind this angry baby Trump blimp referred to themselves as ‘anti-fascists.’
Sadiq Khan’s spokesman said the Mayor approved the blimp because he supports the right to peaceful protest.
Following Sadiq Khan’s approval of a balloon mocking President Trump to be flown over Parliament during his visit to the UK, a counter-campaign has surged to over £10,000 out of nowhere in just 24 hours for a balloon depicting the London Mayor to go up.
The campaign’s appeal reads: “To have a giant size Sadiq Khan, ‘Baby Khan’ balloon fly over London to demonstrate our unhappiness with him as our Mayor of London.”
Protesters have now been given permission to fly a bikini-clad blimp of London mayor Sadiq Khan over Westminster.
Campaigners raised £58,182 for the 29ft-long ‘baby Khan’, which will fly over Parliament square on 1 September.
Mr. Bruere the organizer of this event is from Northampton and he says the anti-Trump campaign shows “blatant disrespect to the leader of the free world”, and has retaliated with a bouncy effigy of his own. The 27-year-old, who is based in Barcelona, Spain, has not long been crowdfunding but has already raised around £40,000 of his £50,000 target.
Mr. Bruere said to i: “I think it’s [Trump Baby] insulting and childish. We shouldn’t be making the US president feel unwelcome.
Trump has made America safe and has made the world safe. In London, under Khan as mayor, crime is soaring to unprecedented levels and people don’t feel safe. “We’re making the Sadiq Khan balloon as ugly as possible. It’s a bit of fun – it’s something funny in response to the Trump baby”.
