While UK Protesters Fly A Trump Baby Blimp, Obama Receives Standing Ovation At NBA Finals Game 2





Former President Barack Obama received a standing ovation from fans in Toronto as he attended game 2 of the NBA Finals Sunday evening.

Fans at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto broke into chants of “MVP!” during the second quarter after Obam was shown on the jumbotron.

Obama stood up from his seat during the chants and ovation to acknowledge the crowd.



Across the pond, however, a 20-foot blimp depicting President Trump as a diaper-donning baby was being readied to fly again in protest of his three-day state visit to the U.K., taking to the skies in Parliament Square on Tuesday.

The blimp made its first appearance at Trump’s inaugural visit to London last year.

USAToday notes: “The U.K.-based Stop Trump Coalition, which owns and manages the blimp, is reviving the baby blimp at 9 a.m. A series of protests will follow (sans baby blimp) at venues like Buckingham Palace, where Trump is having dinner with Queen Elizabeth, and Guildhall Square in Portsmouth, where Trump will participate in commemorations to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.”
