Donald Trump is notoriously thin skin with a horrifically fragile ego. This makes him all the more dangerous when it comes to abusing power, because if there is anything a malignant narcissist like him cannot stand, it is being mocked and humiliated. However, that is just how anti-Trump activists plan to get under the Donald’s thin, orange skin. Oh, and this time the mockery is coming from the other side of the pond.
Of course, the people of Great Britain hate Donald Trump. Their Parliament has spent precious time on more than one occasion excoriating Trump’s bigotry and bombast, and trips have had to be arranged so that Trump won’t be met with massive protests in London. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that British activists have decided to craft a giant “Trump Baby” air balloon. The fixture has Trump’s trademark ugly orange blondish coif, and is wearing a diaper with large safety pins. Oh, and it has tiny hands. Here is the tweet with the giant balloon:
"He is like the most powerful man in the world, but he seems very vulnerable to being mocked": Activists plan to fly this giant "Trump baby" balloon above London to protest the president's U.K. visit. https://t.co/L7OcB4xIQw pic.twitter.com/HDWEqMM4ji

This is the hilariousness that will greet Trump when he visits the United Kingdom. The activists responsible say:
“Donald Trump is a big, angry baby with a fragile ego and tiny hands …”
“Moral outrage is water off a duck’s back to Trump. But he seems to really hate it when people make fun of him. So when [he] visits on July 13th, we want to make sure he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him.”
Indeed, the idea that the people of America’s closest ally are mocking and laughing at Trump is his worst nightmare. In fact, some people say that it was the humiliation that Trump suffered at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner at the hands of President Barack Obama and comedian Seth Meyers is the reason Trump ran for President in the first place.
Unfortunately, London Mayor Sadiq Khan is challenging the protest, but we can always hope. They say that if they cannot fly it above Parliament Square when Trump visits, they “may need to be creative about finding a suitable alternative location.”
In short, if it happens, this will be Trump’s worst nightmare, and we’ll be popping our popcorn, waiting to watch him explode when it comes to fruition. It looks like these activists are determined, and that balloon will go up somewhere. We can’t wait.
