‘Baby Trump’ balloon stabbed, deflated outside Alabama-LSU game; suspect arrested

The ‘Baby Trump’ balloon was deflated after being stabbed by a protester shortly before kick-off of the Alabama-LSU game Saturday afternoon.

The man who stabbed the balloon at Monnish Park was wearing an Alabama Crimson Tide t-shirt. He was screaming at the organizers of the Donald Trump protest as police led him, handcuffed, into the back of a squad car.

He was booked into Tuscaloosa County Jail and charged with Criminal Mischief.

The ‘Baby Trump’ balloon was brought to Tuscaloosa Saturday to protest the presence of President Donald Trump at the game.

Donors raised the $4,000 needed to rent the balloon earlier this week.

The organization that owns ‘Baby Trump’ said the deflation doesn’t make much of a difference to them, “We have 6 [Baby Trump balloons] and will persist to resist the Liar-in-Chief.”
