Baby Trump do do, do do do do, Baby Trump … Yes, Donald Trump’s attendance at Saturday’s University of Alabama vs. Louisiana State University football game will be met by an appearance of the 20-foot Baby Trump balloon a few blocks away.
Trump is clearly venue-shopping for a sports crowd that won’t boo him too loudly after humiliations at the World Series and a UFC fight, and on Saturday we’ll learn if he found it. But organizers were still able to raise the $4,000 to bring Baby Trump in just a matter of hours on GoFundMe.
The University of Alabama has threatened that “disruptive” behavior could lead to penalties like the loss of reserved seating, though that threat was walked back after public outcry. Whatever happens Saturday, Donald Trump is going to go down in history as a president who had to travel hundreds of miles to find a sporting event where he had a good chance of not being booed—and he will still have been met by one of six big-ass balloons that now exist to mock him, since the concept has proved so popular.
