What is Baby Trump?
Baby Trump is a 20-foot-high balloon, a visual characterization of the petulant child that is Trump. He is described by his British creators as “a big angry baby with tiny hands.”
What is the Baby Trump Tour?
The Baby Trump Tour is a national tour of multiple Baby Trump balloons. It’s sponsored by the People’s Motorcade, Inc., a New Jersey based grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to protesting Trump and
his administration. The People’s Motorcade will join with organizations across the globe bringing our Baby Trump balloons to events and locations for the purpose of exposing the Baby in the Oval Office for the petulant child that he is. The Baby Trump Tour will continue until our Liar-in-Chief is out of office.
Why did we create the Baby Trump Tour?
Donald Trump’s words and actions show him to be the greatest threat to democracy we have ever encountered, but Trump himself is a hollow weakling with a fragile ego. His attacks on women, immigrants, minorities, religion, children and families, our justice system, intelligence agencies, environment, healthcare, rule of law, and the Constitution that frames our great country, are unacceptable! Baby Trump is our way of rejecting him and all he represents. The Baby Trump Tour, with your help and participation, will deliver that rejection to cities across the country.
How many balloons are there?
There are currently six Baby Trump balloons participating in our Tour.
Why so many?
Our original goal was to raise enough money to bring at least one balloon to the United States. However, based on the incredible response to the GoFundMe campaign we decided it was only right to produce as many as we could. The people had spoken. They wanted babies!
How big are the balloons?
Each balloon is 20 high by 13 feet wide and holds just under 1200 cubic feet of gas.
What makes them float?
Helium, the same gas used in birthday balloons. We fill our big Babies with air and just enough helium to make them float. Unlike hydrogen, helium is safe, but very expensive. It can cost up to $1,000 to fully inflate one of our balloons.
How high do they go?
Whether the Babies take flight is up to the event organizer. They can sit on the ground with a minimal amount of helium or elevated by using more helium. A guidance document prepared by our team of experienced balloon handlers will be made available to all adopting parents.
Are they like the balloons I see at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade?
They float in a similar way to those balloons and can be ‘walked’ for short distances. In most cases it is recommended that they be securely moored to the ground. This is a common requirement of the FAA and local authorities.
Where can I see one?
How do I get a Baby Trump Balloon in my city?
We are seeking groups and organizations who can partner with us in the United States. If you’d like to
host an event in your city, please fill out our Baby Trump Adoption Service application and we’ll get back
to you right away.
Are there other ways to help besides hosting an event?
Yes! Even though the Baby Trump Tour is barely off the drawing board, we have been inundated by inquiries from both the media and the public. We need passionate people who can help us get these balloons into every city across the nation. If you’d like to help, please fill out our Contact & Help form.
Do you accept donations?
Shipping and handling these balloons isn’t cheap. Neither is helium. Add in location rental, security, and insurance and before you know it, you’re in for a big ticket. You can help us defray these expenses; please purchase some of our cool Tour Swag or simply Donate to the cause. All donations will go to event operations; our organization is entirely volunteer.
