While we don’t advocate violence or destruction of property, it’s hard to not like how one Twitter user put it: “not all heroes wear capes.”
At the Alabama-LSU game, one disrespectful person decided to bring the “Baby Trump” balloon and display it near the game.
Don’t these people have anything better to do?
I guess not.
It didn’t go well for them.
Here's more from the AP:
A towering “Baby Trump” protest balloon was knifed and deflated by someone unhappy with its appearance during President Donald Trump’s Saturday trip to Alabama, organizers said.
The incident occurred during Trump’s visit to watch the University of Alabama football game. The balloon, which is over 20 feet (6.1 meters) tall, was set up in a nearby park.
Jim Girvan, the organizer of a group that “adopts” out the Trump balloons for protests, said a man charged the balloon with a knife and cut an 8-foot-long (2.4-meter-long) gash in the back. Girvan said the unidentified man was taken into custody. Tuscaloosa police did not immediately respond to a request for more details.
The orange, diaper-clad, cellphone-clutching caricature of the president is often taken to Trump appearances as a way to protest him.
Baby Trump first rose over London when local activists brainstormed a way to troll Trump. Now several groups raise money to bring balloon replicas around the U.S.
Robert Kennedy, a volunteer “baby sitter” who brought the balloon to Tuscaloosa, said the balloon immediately began to sag after it was cut.

It appears as though Hoyt Hutchinson was the popper:
We PROUDLY Support Trump!
The exact same hat our President wears!
Only while they last....
