Trump Blimp London England

The controversial, but admittedly quite amusing, Trump Baby Blimp took to the skies over Westminster this morning.

After a successful crowdfunding campaign and recently secured permission from the authorities, protesters sent the bulbous, orange, tiny-handed balloon floating over Parliament Square.

In an op-ed in the Evening Standard, Mayor of London  Sadiq Khan said: ‘I fully respect the right to protest peacefully, and I understand that this can take different forms, from street protests to flying blimps. My message to those travelling to march in London is this: you are welcome to come to our capital, but this must be a peaceful and good-spirited demonstration.’

A simple message:
