Protesters greeted President Trump on his visit to Granite City, Ill., with a giant balloon depicting him as a chicken.
Trump delivered remarks at the U.S. Steel Co.'s Granite City Works, where he also took credit for the plants reopening following his increased tariffs on imports.
Protesters lined up hours ahead of his visit to greet the president with the Trump chicken balloon and numerous signs attacking the president as a liar, calling for his impeachment, and slamming his controversial zero-tolerance immigration policy.
Last week, another 33-foot-tall inflatable blimp depicting Trump as a chicken captured headlines after it was reportedly seen off the coast of San Francisco.
That chicken blimp was dressed in black and white prison stripes and labeled Prisoner 45."
A 20-foot inflatable Trump baby" blimp also captured international attention earlier this month when it flew over the United Kingdom during the president's visit there.
The orange diaper-clad baby holding a cell phone flew over London and Edinburgh and is now at the center of a battle between British museums over who gets to add the blimp to their collection.
Not even newsworthy.
While they have chicken and baby balloons, Trump has a roaring economy. They have Nancy Pelosi and we have Nikki Haley. They have pussy hats and we have $25 an hour job openings. They want to abolish ICE and we want to eliminate North Korean nuclear weapons.
Gosh, that’s beautiful..........;)
Real resistors of the past must be rolling in the ground laughing at this resourceful and courageous 'Resistance.'
WHy this stunt?
Democrats can’t meme and they can’t generate real enthusiasm or creativity.
They PAY people to show up. They PAY people to come up with ideas.
Remember the Hillary “Duck”? Trump was “ducking” a debate so Dems paid for a duck to show up and follow him.
All PAID FOR fake ground movement. Then they put in the ‘news story’ with their jour-no-list fake media.
This has all the signs. 1. Fake protest. 2. Unclever attempt at humor. 3. Media runs a news story about it.
We’ve got Chik-Fil-A and they’ve got a rubber chicken full of hot air.
Trump even keeps balloon makers employed ,LOL
One way to look at it. In an earlier thread about vandalism to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ yacht, the usual “no one needs a yacht” comments were answered by how many people work in that industry.
As a former Yacht builder at Stephens Bros. in Stockton Ca, I would agree that the industry produces employment.
No kidding. Trump is creating jobs, jobs, jobs, and these children are playing with balloons. God help this country.
It's available in democratic blue too.
I doubt people in that town are too impressed with a stunt probably organized by the Riverfront Slimes
That beautiful hug, salute and comments from the World War II vet, makes this story so pathetic and unremarkable.
Think of Doug Q. Jones and you have got to feel better.
let the whinny babies play with their balloons.
Remember when Ted Kennedy did his about face on the Luxury Tax when he found out it was hurting boat buildets in his State?
Baby Trump didn’t fly OVER anywhere, but why spoil the story.
