Trump balloon makes appearance in UK visit promo 00:46



(CNN)It's been seen in the UK and Argentina. Versions of it have flown over border cities and protests around the US. Now, a feminist activist group has announced they are planning to fly a round, diapered Donald Trump baby balloon during the President's 4th of July address at the Lincoln Memorial.

The group, Code Pink, said in a statement that they plan to show up near Trump's much-touted Independence Day speech "to protest the racism, hatred, fear, and militarism that Trump stands for and promotes."

"On July 4, CODEPINK will parade the Baby Trump blimp in DC as an all out call to reject Trump," the announcement reads.
"When Trump speaks at the Lincoln Memorial, let's show him what a big baby he is!"...................

Nothing from either of the links talks about permits. Also note that title says 'may'.
would be grand if this did happen.













Code Pink Statement:



DC July 4: Baby Trump Parade

https://www.codepink.org/dc_july_4_baby_trump_parade



Event Description

On July 4, CODEPINK will parade the Baby Trump blimp in DC as an all out call to reject Trump.

President Trump is planning to speak at the Lincoln Memorial on July 4, at an event named "A Salute to America." But Trump's America has been one of putting children in cages, banning refugees and immigrants, aligning with the murderous Saudi regime, supporting Israel's occupation and system of apartheid, instigating a war with Iran, and spreading hate and racism across the U.S. and the world. We say no way!

Join us in D.C. on July 4 (exact time TBA) to protest the racism, hatred, fear, and militarism that Trump stands for and promotes.

1. Why advertise this? It only gives the "baby" time to declare a state of

emergency banning all balloon type things within 50 miles of his stupid speech. Just go ahead and DO IT without warning him.

3. They'd better guard it...

like Trump guards his tax returns, or some MAGA asshole will shoot it full of holes.

4. My fears as well...

... I'd not be brave enough to be one of the cord holders. I think the entire group of individuals controlling the balloon need to be surrounded by bodyguards.

5. I doubt that will end well for the shooter.

Shooting a gun near the capital at an event the president and other politicians will be attending will get someone some very unwanted attention. But I wouldn't be surprised if some MAGAt is stupid enough to try.

7. What If Trump Threw a Parade and Nodbody Came?

Seriously, instead of showing up to protest, I think everyone should boycott the July 4 festivities in D.C.
