‘Trump Baby’ Balloon for President’s Trip to U.K.? London Mayor Says Yes

Post by eddie on Sun Jul 08, 2018 4:27 am

First topic message reminder :




LONDON — A week before Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon’s working visit to Britain, the mayor of London has allowed an additional participant in the city’s welcome reception: a giant orange balloon of the president depicted as a baby in a diaper.

The balloon was approved amid “Stop Trump” protests planned for the visit starting on July 12. Activist groups and trade unions organized an online petition calling on the mayor to allow the effigy to be flown over Parliament. It drew over 10,000 signatories.

Mr. Trump’s visit to Britain was originally scheduled to coincide with the opening of the new United States Embassy in January, but it was abruptly canceled with a message on Twitter from the president saying he did not want to inaugurate the building because the Obama administration had paid too much for it.

British and American officials speculated that the real reason Mr. Trump had pulled out of the trip was because of the risk of large-scale protests.

At the time, the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan — who has had a long-running feud with Mr. Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. — said the American president “got the message” from Londoners who “love and admire America and Americans” but find his policies and actions “the polar opposite of our city’s values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance.”

Why does he feel the need to abuse and insult women. Men who do this normally can't perform and blame it on the woman.

I've never been nasty to him, yet he Slags me and others off all the time. He hates women, such a sad man. Evil or Very Mad

Magica, eddie, Sly', and their assorted xenophobic and fascist cohorts are by far the most cleverest and smarterest geniuses that I have ever encountered.

Indeed, they consider me so stupid and "not intelligent" that they obviously believe that I should not have even been born;  let alone have the gall to fight back against their lies..

Furthermore, Slydog and Horatio Fuckface are so undeniably the smarterest as those despicable lying old slags have gone as far as to falsely call me the number 1 "troll" on here;  (though, it's certainly not like those disgusting old fascist sluts even know the meaning of the word..).

Indeed, I'm so hopelessly stupid and "not intelligent" that I don't even deserve to live..

After all, it's not like the old Englische bitches club (Horatio, Sly and their faithful apologist lapdog magica..) haven't been insulting and abusing me every month or so over the last couple of years, is it ???

Pathetic bunch of lying dogs, the whole nasty little bunch..    Suspect

I never insulted him, but he constantly insults me, so now I give it back.
Tbh it takes more energy to be nasty than it does to be kind.

he does it all the time. It gets so tedious it pushes you away from the forum. How a grown man, if you can call him that, behaves so abusively to women like this, beats me. Reminds me of that loser, Phil, who is posting on CM about myself and Syl throwing acid in our faces. I can only presume their lives are pretty vacuous and lonely.

Back to the OP. There's no dignity in treating people like this even if you loathe them as leaders. Perhaps cold disdain might speak a lot louder than all the outraged pearl clutching. People seem to need someone or something to hate and rail against these days. You even see it on forums.

Cheeto is a repulsive megalomaniac. I'm not comparing him unfavourably with just Obama, I'm comparing him unfavourably with all the previous 44 presidents.

Trump is a stranger to diplomacy of course, doesn't seem to consider what he says or how he says it. He is perhaps the very opposite of a president, that is for the American people to deal with. He is though he head of state and represents the countries's people, they may not like it but that's how it goes in the current system. We should not be showing disrespect to a head of state with a balloon, I think its rather more serious than some silly inflatable being flown, lets have a grown up show of opposition.
People standing in silence maybe with banners sending a message(doubt he cares though) not silly slogans and bad behaviour whch could insult our allies and show us in a poor light to the rest of the world.

Now you give back. One thing about Trump is that he graphically poses new challenges to western democracy. Maybe, after all, we were too nice-nice.

Past Republicans only gave us war-raping, baby killing, torture, rendition, and only one concentration camp. Now we have dozens. Trump has given us border kidnapping, renewed nuclear threat, white supremacy, economy-wrecking, and plastic trophies all over the place…from North Korea to NATO. Except for the plastic trophies, Trump gives us BIG, BIG, BIG. Unfortunately, like the plumbing in Trump Tower, the cheap shit falls apart in two months.

Trump has sent me scrambling to re-read The Federalist Papers, written by Hamilton, Madison and Jay in the 1780's. We are back to original demagoguery--the big stuff, where the battle is between strongmen and the soft, pussy-people.

Sharpen all knives, folks. The best is yet to come.

why do you think Equity means than we cant Judge a Evil person to be evil?
equity doesn't mean free from Consequence.

in this case the individual being ridiculed 100% deserves that level of ridicule and more.


your basically saying "the Rapist shouldn't go to prison because the innocent man doesn't go to Prison" and saying it's about equity.....  Suspect  Suspect  Suspect  Suspect

I know there have been protests when some leaders have come over, Saudi Arabia for example. The media just doesn't make as much of it because a) the media is piss scared of offending Muslims and b) people, sadly, are interested in everything related to Trump, and the media has a product to sell in the end.

Plus, they don't represent countries that try to maintain a veneer of democratic respectability. They are bastard regimes who care little about presenting themselves otherwise. Trump comes from a country which champions democratic accountability above all else.

Plus, Trump by being himself, on social media and beyond, is disrespecting the office of President on a frequent basis.

People have a right to protest, I don't think anyone is denying that.
Personally I think the balloon is going too far, but the fact that the mayor of London has approved and allowed it is what imo is wrong.

Its also hypocritical as that same mayor banned posters of women in bikinis in parts of London.....freedom to express yourself shouldn't only work if its something you approve of surely.

Trump will receive a royal enough reception in Helsinki.

I think they do. I lived in London enough to realize they know what's what. I think they realize--as do people in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles--that Trump's way is autocratic, and seeks to diminish western democracy.

I think people have every right to protest.
It’s called free speech, and there were at least 250,000 people, who had something to say....

Yes, childish stunt. But Trump is incredibly childish himself! Oversensitive, petty little man-child who takes every minor slight to heart, & quick to post tit-for-tat childish insults. Eg when women criticise him he tweets that they are 'fat & ugly.' Very boastful too - in a juvenile ''my telly is bigger than yours ner ner ner''  way …. even small kids would cringe at this level of immaturity.

The guy who organised the balloon stunt says he plans to do it at every city in the world that Trump visits.  If Trump retaliates with a Khan balloon presumably he will also retaliate at the leaders of these other cities/countries too?

Khan allows this, meanwhile does nothing about the knife crime on London's streets.

This president felt it was fine to INSULT the previous president constantly for 8 years. Even tho Obama got a higher democratic election vote than him, he disrespected Obama continuously. 

The first-ever African American president was an iconic hero to many Americans who had little in their lives to feel uplifted about. Yet Trump was happy to trash their hero everyday, calling him a ''liar, a fraudster, an alien, a Muslim who wasn't even born in The USA''.


He cynically tapped into the groundswell of hatred of supremacists who resented having an African American as the POTUS and he joined in the calls for Obama to be impeached. Cos he wanted to be POTUS himself, pure jealousy.


Give me one reason why a guy so devoid of respect, decency and common courtesy towards another elected president should get any respect himself? Goose/gander etc....

Do we have to go to his level in praising? Protesting or praising, it doesn't matter. Speaking of pussies or female newscasters who are bleeding...it's the language he speaks.

Khan allows this, meanwhile does nothing about the knife crime on London's streets.

This president felt it was fine to INSULT the previous president constantly for 8 years. Even tho Obama got a higher democratic election vote than him, he disrespected Obama continuously. 

The first-ever African American president was an iconic hero to many Americans who had little in their lives to feel uplifted about. Yet Trump was happy to trash their hero everyday, calling him a ''liar, a fraudster, an alien, a Muslim who wasn't even born in The USA''.


He cynically tapped into the groundswell of hatred of supremacists who resented having an African American as the POTUS and he joined in the calls for Obama to be impeached. Cos he wanted to be POTUS himself, pure jealousy.


Give me one reason why a guy so devoid of respect, decency and common courtesy towards another elected president should get any respect himself? Goose/gander etc....

Like him or loathe him, he is a President. Putting up a balloon was so childish. I hope someone does one of Khan and Corbyn.

How did Hitler get into this. Are you saying Trump is another Hitler?

Well, all I can say is he is a democratically, in the present system anyway, voted for president, so unless you want international intervention the problem for the US people , don;t vote him in for a second term. The problem is that he speaks to the dispossessed, as least far as they are concerned perhaps or maybe actually, the same as Brexit, the current world order is great for the haves but pretty dismal for the have nots, which is a lot of people.

My view is this

Everyone has a right to protest and ridicule anyone

As long as its not hateful

This is not hateful

If people are going to get upset over this, they are as bad as idiots that rioted over people drawing comics of Muhammad

Both are or were people, in some cases are revered by people. That though does not mean people cannot, ridicule or piss take about them. As they were and are adults to what they have done or do in life

Things are insulting, its not hate here though is it?

So people have a right to protest, they are not rioting are they?

Was the "Life of Brian" Childish in regards to Jesus?

How about "Dogma"? With Alanis Morissette as the Bibical God?

Putting up a piss take balloon, is simple piss take

Why is anyone getting their kickers in a twist over this?

You sound like religious fanatics

Its not for example a Nazi Ballon, or a racist, sexist ect balloon is it?

Its simple a comical balloon taking the piss out of a President

I bet half of you would like to see one of your own boss flown in the air also  as a piss take balloon   Laughing

I would be happy if one was put of of Corbyn and May and Khan

Waste of time and effort, and it hasn't shown Khan in a good light either.

Trump, as expected, is putting his foot in it left, right and centre.....he is doing far more to show what a crap president he is than any amount of balloons and protests.

Well the protests have certainly gained media attention and the world will see this

A few friends of mine went yesterday

One is Lakota American Indian (who happens to be about the most beautiful person I have ever met. One of her ancestors fought at the Battle of the Little Big Horn). Who went with her daughter and had a "native pride" t-shirt on. A placard that said. "No One is Illegal on Stolen land, we are still here"

She is right, the land was constantly stolen by consecutive Us Governments who broke about every treaty they had with the Native American Indians. So she has a very good point. How can people be classed illegal, when the US was built on the illegal conquest of lands. Just as we saw with the Arab conquests of the Middle East and North Africa. Through Arabization

What is disappointing, is why many people also do not protest countless other leaders that criminalize homosexuality, deny womens rights etc.

There's a precedent. Nicko, and it resulted in eight deaths.

In 1987 two Palestinians flew into Israeli airspace near the Lebanese border and attacked a military base using hand grenades and guns. They were shot dead, but not before killing eight Israelis and wounding several more.

It became known as "the night of the gliders" and I was in Israel as part of a British delegation at the time...and too bloody close to the incident for my liking!

So true. That's the kind of America he champions.

Xi Jinping recently declared himself ruler for life. Trump admired that and wished he could do the same.

Khan should not let his personal opinion influence him in this manner. It's all very childish.

Let's hope that he applies that to himself then. Come on, the whole thing is really childish and Khan should know better, but perhaps he doesn't.

Does Khan deny people the right to protest against him?
