The “Trump Baby” blimp is coming to New Jersey to haunt Trump when he spends weekends relaxing at one of his properties.

During his recent trip to England, Trump said the presence of the blimp, which depicts him as a diaper-wearing baby yelling into a cell phone, made him feel “unwelcome” in London.

He avoided capital city, where thousands marched alongside the Trump blimp to protest his toxic racism and vile personal character.

Now Trump might feel “unwelcome” at his own club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he often spends weekends during the summer.

Activists in New Jersey set up an online fundraiser to build a replica “Trump Baby” blimp. They asked for $4,500 and have now raised over $23,693 in an ongoing testament to Trump’s unpopularity and the strong resistance to his presidency.

Activists Didier Jiminez-Castro and Jim Girvan told NPR they will use the surplus to buy multiple blimps “so we can go coast-to-coast, border-to-border.”

The first deployment stateside will be at Trump’s National Golf Club in Bedminster.

“The baby Trump is not just a piece of humor, but it is also a symbol of the administration,” Jiminez-Castro said. “It’s symbolic of the children that are in cages, it’s a symbol of racism, and we know that he hates to be ridiculed.”

The deployment of the blimp on American soil will demonstrate that despite Trump’s attempts to disrupt the historic friendship between the United Kingdom and America, the “special relationship” continues.

Shaming, mocking, and ridiculing Trump is an activity that extends across the Atlantic Ocean, uniting those who oppose hate and bigotry.

Trump Baby is coming.

Some of the January 6 rioters who are facing federal criminal charges are now saying, as part of their defense, that they were misled, brainwashed or unfairly manipulated by then-President Donald Trump, MAGA media and/or the QAnon cult. And one of the rioters who is using that type of defense is QAnon supporter Doug Jensen, who is saying that he was a "victim" of false information from the far-right conspiracy movement.
