The nearly 20-foot-tall Trump baby blimp, which took to the skies in London on Tuesday to protest the president’s state visit to the U.K., was reportedly stabbed by a Trump supporter named Amy Dalla Mura, also known as “Based Amy.”
In a video posted to Twitter, Mura films herself walking up to the baby blimp and stabbing it with a sharp object.
“That’s a disgrace,” Mura shouts. “It’s a national disgrace. The president of the United States is the best president ever!”
“I think Donald Trump’s balloon is not very well. I think it’s going down rapidly for a reason,” she said as she walked away and encouraged bystanders around her to take a look at what she’s done.
A spokesman for Trump Baby UK told The Independent that “a woman … punctured the mini Trump baby replica with a sharp object,” adding that “it’s not surprising that the far right would want to meet freedom of expression with violence.”
A Scotland Yard spokesperson told The Independent that “one female has been arrested for being in possession of a pointed or bladed article.”
This video of a woman named "Based Amy" stabbing the Trump baby balloon is the most British thing you can imagine. She even does an Austin Powers "Yeah, baby!" https://t.co/r1QmoZ3BeC

Infamous far-right troll Amy Dalla Mura, who goes by "Based Amy," stabbed the Trump baby today but also appears to have nicked herself on her own knife. She was arrested immediately afterwards.https://t.co/ouA5C25az4 pic.twitter.com/fmDFTSYXnK

As for the blimp? It “was only lightly wounded in today’s attack and stands at full pressurisation,” according to reporter Mike Stuchbery.
For those of you asking, Trump Baby was only lightly wounded in today's attack and stands at full pressurisation.
