Giant Robot Trump Tweeting On The Toilet To Join Anti-Trump Protests During His State Visit To UK

The creator's intent was "to create this year’s attention-getting and bile-producing sequel to the Trump baby balloon".

The UK is gearing up for Donald Trump's state visit next month, protesters and supporters alike. There are many protestors who are preparing some really creative ways to mock the POTUS. This year, an artistic piece will accompany the hoards during their protest. A gigantic robot, named "Dumping Trump", will be seen around. The work of art shows the president sitting on a golden toilet bowl, smartphone in hand, trousers down and with his long red tie dangling into the bowl between his thighs.



 

Independent reports the actual genius behind this piece is Don Lessem, an American science writer, dinosaur expert and advisor for Jurassic Park, and has previously built animatronic dinosaurs. Standing at 4.9 meters (16 foot), the machine has some audio effects which will spout some of Trump’s most famous, most "iconic" statements, including: "No collusion", "a witch-hunt", "you are fake news" and "I’m a very stable genius." According to The Hill, it also makes fart noises and wears a hat that says, "Make America Great Again" and "Impeach Me!" 

Commenting on the robot, Lessem said, "When not on the [golf] links, Trump apparently spends most of his time on the can tweeting, so I figured to pay full tribute to him he’d have to be positioned on a golden toilet. For his own safety, we thought to put his overlong tie into the toilet itself. He's tweeting of course, and his mouth moves to utter deathless quotes in his own voice .... His Make America Great Again cap is subtitled ‘Impeach Me’ — as if we needed a reminder."



 

When asked why, Lessem's response was "I think we need a focus to our rage, and as many and large reminders as possible of what a disgusting disgrace this oaf is to humanity." He added that the robot is in China and will be sent to the UK just in time for the president's June arrival. It’s being shipped "on a freighter whose name I won’t disclose for fear Trump will bomb it," Lessem said.  He added that his "goal is 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."

We all remember the orange- colored baby that was flown during his visit last year. The inflatable 6-meter replica of the president wearing a nappy and holding a smartphone accompanied the protestors in London. According to Vox, more than 10,000 people signed a petition to allow the flight of the Baby Trump Balloon last year, after which London Mayor Sadiq Khan approved its flight. In fact, there are rumors that the same balloon but five times larger than its predecessor, will be flown this year. Sadiq Khan said that any request to fly such a balloon would be subjected to the same rules as last year.



 

Trump is scheduled to be in the UK for a little over 2 days — from June 3 to June 5. Part of his trip will include a visit to the Buckingham Palace where he will be required to attend a state banquet in his honor. However, he will not be staying at the Queen's royal residence. Prime Minister Theresa May has said that the visit will be a chance for the UK and the US "to strengthen our already close relationship". While the White House said it would "reaffirm the steadfast and special relationship" between the two nations.
