CODEPINK brought Baby Trump to the US, and they said in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA:
This 4th of July, CODEPINK will host a festival on the National Mall from 2-6pm to protest the Trump administration’s politicization of our national holiday. The anti-war organization will be featuring the Trump Baby Blimp, made famous in the UK, and a 16-foot Trump Robot sitting on a golden toilet, as well as lots of small Baby Trump balloons. The festival will also include stand-up comedy, a dance party, and an open mic for participants to bring attention to issues that are important to them.
“The president is shifting the 4th of July festivities to celebrate his administration and to glorify war. We will bring together people opposed to the pain and suffering caused by this administration, from concentration camps at the border to supplying weapons used by Saudi Arabia to kill Yemeni children. We want to celebrate the power we have as Americans to work toward peace,” says Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK.
Donald Trump thinks being called a baby is the biggest insult imaginable, so Baby Trump is the perfect message in the sky to send this president.
