16ft Talking Donald Trump Robot That Makes Farting Noises Appears In Trafalgar Square
A 16ft talking robot of US President Donald Trump sitting on a gold toilet has popped up in Trafalgar Square today, tying in with the second day of the US president's three-day state visit this week.
The robot plays audio of Trump's own voice, with phrases like 'No collusion', 'You are fake news' and 'I'm a very stable genius', and also makes a farting sound.
Don Lessem, who travelled from Philadelphia in the US with the robot, told the Mail Online: "The fart we couldn't get from him [Trump] so we had to use a generic fart."
Lessem explained he had the robot made in China, and said of Trump: "Well he's a disgrace. I want people to realise that this doesn't represent America. Humour is my weapon. He's a would-be dictator."
The giant blimp that made Trump feel 'unwelcome' is also back again, having been re-inflated this morning in Parliament Square.
The 20ft blimp, which famously depicts Trump as a baby wearing a nappy, was first seen above Westminster when Trump last visited London in July last year.
But now it's back with a vengeance to greet President Trump for his latest visit, which will see him lunch with the Queen at Buckingham Palace before having a good ol' chinwag with Prime Minister Theresa May.
The stunt comes from the Stop Trump coalition group, which announced it would unleash the blimp if a fundraising page for the project hit £30,000.
By Thursday, donations had already surpassed £16,000, and on Sunday the organisers announced the target had reached, and that they would even be raising it to £50,000 to give things an 'even bigger boost'.
Ajuub Faraji, a spokesman for the project, said in a statement to Business Insider: "Trump will try his best to avoid the public on his trip, but with Trump Baby flying we're sending a very clear message of solidarity to those affected by his despicable politics - and saying loud and clear that the US president doesn't deserve the red carpet treatment being given to him by the government."
Then, of course, there's this massive penis that was mowed into a field by Born Eco.
The penis is accompanied by the message 'Oi Trump', while a polar bear has been cut into another field alongside the message 'Climate change is real'.
Just moments before Air Force One dropped the president off at Stansted this morning, Trump took the chance to reignite his political feud with the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan - tweeting to say he is a 'stone cold loser'.
....Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job - only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!

He also slagged Khan off last time he was in town - having blamed the whole baby blimp debacle on the London mayor.
Speaking to The Sun at the time, Trump revealed that he'd been warned about the stunt.
"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London," he said.
"I used to love London as a city. I haven't been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?
"And when I say that I am talking about government because the people of the UK agree with me."
But Trump also reckoned Khan was to blame for allowing the blimp to take flight, saying: "You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job. Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London."
He added: "He might not like the current president, but I represent the United States."
