Friday a 20-foot replica of the infamous Baby Trump balloon that flew over London during the “president’s” visit was hoisted above the Politicon Convention in Downtown LA. Starting at around 8 A.M. the balloon was flown at the intersection of the 10 and the 110 freeways at The LA Convention Center. Luckily, LA Beat photog Billy Bennight was there to catch the magic.

After a crowdfunded balloon was said to irk “President Trump” during his visit to the UK last summer. two Americans, Jim Girvan, aged 65, and Didier Jimenez-Castro, aged 30, started their own Gofundme. They were able to purchase six replicas and start a United States tour that has hit Houston Texas, West Palm Beach Florida, and Maplewood New Jersey. It will be in Manhattan later this month.

According to The Bernardsville Patch, “The balloon doesn’t conflict with any Federal Aviation Administration rules,’ Girvan said. But the Secret Service does have height limitations on balloons of nothing higher than 150 feet in the air.”

The group is looking for volunteers nationwide for website development, public relations, attorneys and more. Those interested in volunteering for any service can email babytrumptour@gmail. Here is the Facebook Page. As for the LA crybaby Trump, let’s just hope someone changed his didy first, because Lord knows he has shit on us enough already.
