You'd never live to see it if you wore that in public in most of the US.

The Guardian - Activists plan to fly a balloon effigy of the US president during his London visit on 13 July.

 

 

A group of activists have commissioned a six-metre-high inflatable of the US president to fly over Westminster when he visits ...

 

It is "fragile, like the president's ego"

This is happening - they've got a permit to fly it during Trump's visit next Friday (13th).

 

Trump's supporters in the UK are outraged.  Up to three of them may take to the street in counter protest - unless it rains.

This gets better and better. Nigel Farage says it is 'the biggest insult to a sitting president ever' (yay!) The protest organisers say their campaign raised so much more money than they expected that they are now going to take the balloon on a world tour to 'haunt Mr Trump wherever he goes'.

The Washington Post labeled the Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt "easily the most corrupt senior official in the federal government"

Well he has resigned.

Appropriate for this polluter in change in protecting the US from pollution:

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Unsure why this has happened. He doesn't believe in climate change and he is corrupt, so he does have the requisite CV!

Do you think it will be flown? I hope so, but will the UK allow it? Maybe they will "make efforts to not allow it" but it flys anyway? The perpetrators may get arrested and fined 2 quid....

It already has the necessary licenses. It still needs special permissions from aviation authorities because of the location (Parliament) but that is expected to happen without much problem.

That would be a massive statement  UK. Europe is already miffed and has shown it. Canada, Mexico, China, Russia. It's a growing list.

Trump reportedly gave out his personal cell phone number to world leaders and US officials 'had no idea' he was making calls

 

 

  • President Donald Trump reportedly gave out his personal cell phone number to foreign leaders shortly after taking office.
  • White House officials were shocked after a summary of a conversation was released without their knowledge.
  • US officials reportedly had to rely on Trump's memory of the call for details.
  • Following the incident, US officials insisted Trump adhere to the federal records law and route all calls with foreign leaders through the Situation Room.

Of course he did.

It's a deep state conspiracy when elected officials use personal email servers, and personal phones for government business except when he does it,

Then it's just convenience.

Donald Trump’s [London] visit is looming

 

 

 

It’s a measure of just how loathed Donald Trump is that the authorities will not allow him into the centre of London during his visit to the UK next month.

Even the leaders of hated regimes with appalling human rights records, such as Saudi Arabia and China, get to run the gauntlet of protestors when they ride down the Mall for their lunch with the Queen. ...

 

But in the case of Donald Trump, more than 50,000 people have now said they will join a protest against the President ...

 

The chaos that could result from Trump running into such a huge crowd of people intent on making their feelings known could pose a threat to public order which the authorities dare not risk.

The police just would not be able to cope.

 

This is why Trump cannot come on a state visit, as was originally planned by Theresa May.

 

A state visit is when the Queen issues an invitation, on the advice of the government, and the guest arrives with all the pomp and ceremony of a ride down the Mall and banquet at Buckingham Palace.

 

Instead this US president will be here on a “working visit”, about which we know very little, except that it will involve a meeting with the Queen at Windsor Castle and talks with Mrs May at Chequers. ...

 

Under an obscure Anglo-American agreement revealed during a 2003 visit by President George W Bush in the wake of the Gulf War, up to 250 agents from the US secret service will be allowed to travel with [Trump] and carry guns.

Next a group of very elderly London pensioners will hire a QC to go to their High Court to get an injunction to prevent the flying of the blimp - citing PTSD memories of WWII and anti-aircraft barrage balloons. Injunction will be granted.

 

Six months on there will be a scandal involving an aide to Khan making an illegal database search to find names of pensioners who could be asked to file the injunction.
