If you followed the protests that accompanied President Donald Trump’s visit to London and Scotland last week, you may have noticed a giant, inflatable, diaper-clad version of the POTUS floating above. Now, thanks to a New Jersey activist and a successful GoFundMe page, the irascible dirigible will be gracing our shores next month, Gothamist reports. The big blimp is headed across the pond and is expected to rise near Trump’s Bedminster, NJ golf club in August.

It took activist Didier Jimenez less than 24 hours to raise the $4,500 needed to bring the balloon stateside, where it is expected to scowl angrily down at demonstrations on the East Coast. Jiminez said, “I saw that as a gift to us in the sense that the balloon is a tool to enable us to go after the president in a humor kind of way.”
