A giant 16-foot robot figure of President Trump tweeting on a golden toilet and shouting phrases like “I’m a very stable genius” made its grand debut in London on Tuesday as thousands of protesters demonstrated in the city against President Trump’s state visit to the United Kingdom.
The model, nicknamed “Dump Trump”, reportedly also has an audio function that makes fart noises and repeats the president’s most famous statements, including “no collusion”, “witch-hunt” and “you are fake news.”
Don Lessem, a Philadelphia-based dinosaur expert who made the robot, said last month that his goal was “to create this year’s attention-getting and bile-producing sequel to the Trump baby balloon, and one that could be more easily deployed at rallies all over the world.”
According to the Post, 75,000 people were estimated to have attended demonstrations in London protesting his visit on Tuesday.

Trump dismissed the reports at a press conference earlier on Tuesday, claiming that the protests targeting his visit to the country are “fake news.”
The president also said that he has seen “thousands of people” come out in support of his three-day visit and only a “small protest” on Tuesday.
