And #TrumpBaby is go! Almost. His head is looking a bit worse for wear but sure that will change
These are the official ‘Trump Babysitters’ in charge of the delicate operation
Here’s Max to explain what’s going on and what #TrumpBaby is getting all petulant about
I’ve been reliably informed all is so far going to plan - main concern is wind speed, anything above 15mph and it could go AWOL
Quiff complete!!! Just his tiny hands left to go
Airborne but still tethered - palpable sense of tension in Parliament Square this morning
Those #TrumpBaby tiny hands still proving problematic - nice flash of left nipple for you all too. You’re welcome
Five whole canisters of helium going into this bad boy
We’re close folks - six metres of rotund and petulant #TurmpBaby glory about to take off
It’s like a weird eclipse
Here the #TrumpBaby violently reprimands those behind his creation. Probably.
That tiny spec is one of Trump’s Ospreys - if he’s on board, he’s seen the #TrumpBaby
AND WE ARE GO!!! Bit of a slower ascent than expected but #TrumpBaby is airborne
Nice of them not to tether him by the nipples
And here’s Ghandi’s view for the next couple of hours
Spanish tour guide trying to explain what the fuck is going on
This is Richard from London.

"I think Trump's a despicable human being and I want that to be known. I love the blimp - it's a great form of peaceful protest."
Brother and sister Dina and Ben Nicholson.

Dina: "I think he's wonderful because they've got his expression so well. His coif of yellow hair and his tiny little hands and his nasty frizzly ears, I just find it so fun."
This baby who did not want to be named said: “We don’t like fascists.” (via Mum) #TrumpBabyBlimp
We have music. Think this one’s called ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ #TrumpBabyBlimp
Ok this just got weirder - no idea what’s going on, will report back
Just took this pano shot and accidentally created a stretch taxi
Parliament Square is really filling up now for #TrumpBabyBlimp - a mixture of media, protestors and very confused-looking tourists
Some reinforcements just arrived, did a lap of the square, then left - no idea where they’ve gone
This is EU Supergirl and Faux BoJo.

"Our message is very clear - Brexit and Trump have a lot of parallels. Neither is good for their respective countries, they're only good for Putin."
Shoutout to all the tour guides valiantly trying to describe the rich culture and history of Westminster only to be bombarded with questions about the "big Trump balloon" #TrumpBabyBlimp
And it’s over! The #TrumpBabyBlimp is back on terra firma and will now be deflated. So long baby, it’s been wild x
And here’s Max again with how it all went and what’s next for the #TrumpBabyBlimp
