Gimme a break mate.
That's my whole point, a group of stupid art students get together and now suddenly the world thinks we're a bunch of soy boys.
Leo Murray, an environmental campaigner behind the balloon stunt, said the protest was intended to play on Trump’s psychology. “He’s a deeply insecure man, and that is the only leverage we have over him. If we want his attention, we have to do something that humiliates him.”
Details of the protests, listed on Facebook, are being organised by a coalition called Together Against Trump. Its membership includes the TUC and other trade unions, Stop the War, Friends of the Earth, CND and the Jeremy Corbyn-supporting grassroots group, Momentum.
Trump is then expected to head to Scotland, the birthplace of his mother and where he owns two golf courses. There will be demonstrations on Friday evening in Glasgow and again on Saturday in Edinburgh at noon, where organisers promise a “carnival of resistance” against Trump with stalls, talks, music and games such as “Toss the welly at Trump”, “Trump’s head coconut shy” and “Mini golf”.
A spokesperson for Together Against Trump said: “We regard it as a victory that Donald Trump does not appear to have any official engagements in London or anywhere with a large population. Instead he will stay hidden away in country estates and castles.”

Aight. Yeah. I give it 5 minutes before some enterprising young hard-ass with an air rifle turns this into the coolest non-event in history.
It'll be like a huge Baby Donald Trump Condom suddenly descends from the sky and everyone will just gather peacefully, beneath the warm, Baby-Trump-shaped shroud of peaceful contentment, and yea, trumpets shall sound, and there shall be a great wailing, and gnashing of teeth.
Flare gun would be a lot more spectacular... The Trumpenberg
