To greet Donald Trump on his current diplomatic trip to the UK, residents of London have set flight to a giant, diaper-wearing, balloon effigy of the president. The baby blimp was unleashed outside of Parliament Square in Central London on Friday morning, holding a cell phone and sporting a snarling, pudgy face.
The floating, diaper-president balloon was approved by London Mayor Sadiq Khan after an activist group lobbied the city for permission, writing in classic #resistance fashion on a crowdsourcing page: "Donald Trump is a big, angry baby with a fragile ego and tiny hands." The group obviously tapped into a high-demand market, having garnered $40,000 for their efforts to bring a big, angry orange baby to one the world's premier capitals.
The anti-trump protests drew a remarkable turnout, with around 250,000 people estimated to have marched under the orange baby's scornful eye.
While the balloon's lifespan outside parliament only lasted two hours, images of baby Trump on Twitter will likely burn into your corneas and sting your nostrils. Here are some images from the scene -- for a cackle or two:
