It made Americans who are part of the Make America Great Again movement mad, and apparently angered a number of Brits as well. It is/was the balloon fashioned to look like an infant Donald Trump complete with a diaper or nappie over the nether region and a pacifier in the figure’s mouth.
Thanks to the brave action of a woman in London, it is not flying any longer over that city or anywhere else for that matter.
The Trump baby blimp, which took flight in London on Tuesday to protest the president’s U.K. visit, was stabbed by Trump supporter Amy Dalla Mura, also known as “Based Amy.”
In a video posted to Twitter, Mura films herself walking up to the nearly 20-foot-tall orange, inflatable baby blimp and stabs it with a sharp object, prompting shouts from surrounding protesters.
“That’s a disgrace. It’s a national disgrace. The president of the United States is the best president ever!”
Shortly before police arrive, Mura films herself walking away from the blimp, encouraging bystanders around her to take a look at what she’s done. “I think Donald Trump’s balloon is not very well. I think it’s going down rapidly for a reason,” she says.
The people of the United States who were no fans of the disgraceful balloon thank Ms. Mura for her bravery. The Brits, on the other hand…..
A spokesman for Trump Baby UK told The Independent that “a woman … punctured the mini Trump baby replica with a sharp object,” adding that “it’s not surprising that the far right would want to meet freedom of expression with violence.”
A Scotland Yard spokesperson told The Independent that “one female has been arrested for being in possession of a pointed or bladed article.”
It’s not like Mura stabbed or killed a real baby, born or unborn.
