Protesters want to fly “Baby Trump” balloon during Trump’s 4th of July address.

Yes, please.

When President Trump ascends the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to address the nation on Independence Day, a group of activists want him to see the scowling, splotchy face of a giant orange baby floating above the crowd.

The blimp known as “Baby Trump,” which has appeared at protests during the president’s visits to London, might be on its way to Washington for the July 4 festivities.

On Monday, activist group Code Pink became the first organization to request a protest permit from the National Park Service ahead of Trump’s planned overhaul of the city’s premier Fourth of July celebration. But organizers hope the screaming-baby balloon will be a sign of what’s to come that day: protests, and more of them.

The day will be busy as it is. More than a dozen other groups and individuals have requested space on the Mall that day — for activities that include making cards for troops, leading group meditations, selling books of poetry and preaching. They will join hundreds of thousands of Americans who annually head to the Mall to watch the fireworks.

District officials have expressed concern over how the president’s presence might affect visitors and the typically nonpartisan tenor of the celebration.

“It’s about the worst holiday he could have chosen,” D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) has said. “You never want to make events like this around a single person. This is the difference between the Soviet Union — the old Soviet Union — and the United States. Cults of personality are not how we operate in this country.”

I absolutely don’t think that Trump should be allowed to hijack the 4th of July celebration in DC at all.

However, if he is going to do it anyway then he should absolutely have to deal with a giant baby version of himself in a diaper flying overhead. 

It just seems fair to me.

    It wouldn’t mater what event was taking place. Trump’s reaction will always be exactly the same and have the same odious stench to it. It’s_ all_ about_him. Always has been, always will be and nothing and nobody on God’s earth will ever persuade him differently. That’s why he’s so utterly repulsive in every way you can think of. Standing a mile downwind of him wouldn’t help the stink.

    I will not be celebrating the 4th this year.
    Like the anniversaries of my parents’ birthdays and deaths, just a day to get through and move on.

        What I want to know, is where is the money coming from NOW that supports them and their ‘habits’ of spending and buying things? First it was Russia funds, illegal funds. Then her ‘book’ sales. Yeah right.
        So where is the money coming from to support their asses? And the reason she resigned. She was pretty huffy puffy during her speech. Scared to death really. What’s up with that? Scared that when some find out her crimes they will come after her? Didn’t Russia already do that with the thrashing of ol Todd? Gosh for her being so ‘public’ now she seems to be running scared. I guess I would be too if I were her. Sheesh.

      The Trump moment has been kind to the two women, who reportedly charged between $225 and $500 a head to screen their low-fi documentary “Dummycrats” at Trump’s controversial Washington, D.C., hotel in 2018.

      King had called the press conference to introduce a bill purporting to aid homeless veterans of American wars by redirecting all federal funding from sanctuary cities to unspecified homelessness programming.

    I think they should have the protests outside of D.C. and no one shows up for his rally, like his inauguration.

    I’m not religious but I’ll get down on my arthritic knees and pray for massive thunderstorms over the Lincoln Memorial, just in case the combined efforts of the Park Service, DC Police, Secret Service, FBI, Customs and all the lethal weapons at Andrews, not to mention the gremlins living in the bowels of all the Federal buildings manage, to keep Baby Trump grounded.

    I can but hope that there are many many helium party balloons in the crowd. From my experience those balloons are fragile, letting off fairly loud BANG-type noises with no provocation. Quite unnerving I expect for an Orangeman.

    Maybe the boaters on the Potomac will lend a hand to keep mini-Baby Trumpers flying?
