‘Beach Body Ready’ Sadiq Khan Flies Over London at Pro-Trump Event
A giant balloon depicting London mayor Sadiq Khan dressed in a yellow bikini has been launched over Parliament Square.
A group of supporters watched the inflatable take to the skies. The crowd cheered and shouted, “higher, higher, higher” as the balloon was launched Saturday.
Some wore t-shirts saying “Make London Safe Again”.
Organisers had raised more than £58,000 ($75,000) to create the blimp in a protest against Khan’s policies.
It was meant as a rebuke to Khan, who had earlier backed protesters’ right to launch a balloon depicting U.S. President Donald Trump as an angry baby during his July visit to Britain.
President Trump has repeatedly criticised Khan’s handling of security and crime in London. Khan is London’s first Muslim mayor.
