The University of Alabama will have a surprise mascot at today’s game against Louisiana State University.
After raising thousands more than the $4,000 goal on GoFundMe, a 20-foot tall “Trump Baby” blimp will float above the sporting event, which is to be attended by President Trump, the Washington Post reported.
Nicknamed a “Very Important Protester” by activists, the balloon, which depicts a bright orange Trump donning a diaper secured by safety pins, made its debut last summer during Trump’s trip to the United Kingdom.
Since then, it has followed Trump around the world.
Birmingham resident Nic Gulas tweeted, “WE DID IT!!!” when he learned that he and others successfully brought the blimp to Alabama. It will fly four blocks away from the Tuscaloosa, Alabama, stadium hosting the commander-in-chief.
Trump is used to less-than-warm greetings at sporting festivities. He was booed at an October World Series Game and at last weekend’s UFC 244 match at Madison Square Garden.
