When Donald Trump visits London on July 13, he will be met by crowds of protesters and one giant floating balloon named "Trump Baby."
Late last week, London mayor Sadiq Khan officially approved the blimp to fly over the city after a group had raised over $30,000 on a crowdfunding website. "The mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms," the mayor's office explained in a statement. "His city operations team have met with the organizers and have given them permission to use Parliament Square Garden as a grounding point for the blimp."
Now, the group behind the balloon have announced that they have plans to follow Trump after his visit to the UK and go on a "world tour" with the president. On Crowdfunder, they wrote, "People have been so generous and supportive that we now have way more money than we can sensibly spend just on Trump's UK visit in July! So Trump Baby is going on World Tour! All the details are still TBC but once little Donald has been run out of Britain in July, we will start to put together an itinerary, so if your community is unlucky enough to be expecting a visit from the orange sex pest, please get in touch after the 14th."
Explaining the initial idea that sparked the idea for the balloon, the group wrote, "Donald Trump is a big, angry baby with a fragile ego and tiny hands. He's also racist demagogue who is a danger to women, immigrants and minorities and a mortal threat to world peace and the very future of life on earth. Moral outrage is water off a duck’s back to Trump. But he really seems to hate it when people make fun of him. So when Trump visits the UK on Friday the 13th of July this year, we want to make sure he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him."
Before it takes flight outside of London, the balloon will need to be approved by other cities, but Khan's blessing should help pave the way for Trump Baby to follow the president around the world.
UK citizens have been figuring out ways to annoy Trump on his visit for months. Back in April, a group of protesters started an initiative to drive Green Day's "American Idiot" to the top of the charts in time for the visit.
Even if it doesn't hit No. 1 on the UK charts by July 13, hearing Billie Joe Armstrong yell "Don't wanna be an American idiot" over power chords sounds like an ideal soundtrack for Trump Baby.
