Hate to burst that bubble, but…

Patriot Retort: Boy, things never live up to the hype.

You know, I have to admit, after all the hype and media attention given to the “Giant Trump Baby” blimp, it was a bit of a letdown.

From the way the media was carrying on, didn’t you get the idea that this was going to be a massive, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day float-sized monstrosity soaring high above the city of London like a barrage balloon?

I know I did.

But, the hype, as is often the case, was a wee bit exaggerated.

  1. I’m on the opposite side of the political fence and thousands of miles away from these people and even I feel ripped off.

  2. Besides the Dollar Tree cutout bin balloon , wasn’t the media reporting a protest crowd of around 250,000 ?
    From the photos , I’ve seen more people queued up at Chick-Fil-A.

  3. I imagine that’s the biggest balloon they could find. Their still sending all their money to the EU.

  4. Tripod lady and duct tape guy from the ICE protest were more interesting AND cost effective.

    Typical photographic metaphor for the left. No one’s really into it, it’s not at all what they expected and everyone ends up sour and disappointed.

  5. We have bigger lefty protesters than that balloon in America. Tie a rope around trigglypuff’s ankle.

  6. Are they not allowed to have drones in England?
    Now that would be fun.

    Pop the balloon and have a guy in a fedora and trench coat with a microphone.


  7. Seen almost that many waiting at “in and out burger” in Monetery Calif. The reason for that line is also funny: illegal fleeing in a stolen car rammed into a starbucks, which sign fell off and rolled into the next door McDonalds, hitting the gas line, and burning the McD’s literally to the ground. All those hungry ex-MacD customers now line up at the nearby I+O Burger. http://www.montereycountyweekly.com/blogs/news_blog/updated-four-injured-after-car-crash-ignites-fire-at-mcdonald/article_ca88b874-68d2-11e8-a1dc-cf5c068a62ac.html

  8. “You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”
    Abraham Lincoln

  9. On our local WGAN talk radio they play CBS news during breaks on Rush, etc. The first report today had CBS saying there were tens of thousands of protesters. Someone must have shown them a picture because since they’ve been saying thousands of protesters. Though it looks more like hundreds.
    I thought that thing was going to be like a Macy’s parade balloon too! Pathetic.
    Like we care what the red coats think anyway. Not so much.

  10. *sigh* I’d still kinda liked to have been there with my cigarette-lighting balloon-popping Class IV laser. (It was legal when I bought it. I don’t think it is today.)

  11. I’d bet money that EU regulations “..ate yo’ baby!” They couldn’t fly a balloon over a certain size.

  12. It always goes this way. Yet the media will zoom in and add a little trickery to make it appear yuge! Just wait a day or two.

  13. PoorLazlo “I have Ex’s bigger than that.”

    Not only is that a win, it’s cigarette worthy.

  14. That’s it?? That’s all they got for 20 bucks? Must have gotten the brand new, under inflated, used model from a baby shower bouncy castle. Next time go for the 29.95 Godzilla baby with plastic flames hanging out of the lips.

  15. @MJA – I wish I’d read your first post before I went to the link…. I, shall we say, tootled a wee bit when viewing the link.
    I’m old and have a weak bladder…Dang……..

  16. CNN / BBC had this on nearly a 24 hour loop in my office. I can’t turn off the lobby television, but every time I walked by, this was on.

    I’m not sure why a Trumpster didn’t bother to rig a drone over it and pop in on international t.v. –that would have been classic!


  17. Damn! That’s a cool balloon…are they for sale? I wan’t one. If I were D.T. I’d be laughing my butt off and flying one at the WH.

  18. It’s like half the size of the RAT the union strikers put out in front of department stores to drum up attention. At twice the size even they don’t get attention. I typically roll down my window and yell something at the 5 low lives standing around a rat looking so depressed losing their $10/hr store job.
    “Maybe if ya didn’t waste money on Waxman you’d be able to put food on the table for another week.”
    I feel as sorry for them as consumed oatmeal breakfast.
