That’s right: D.C. vendors are selling miniature versions of the famous Trump baby blimp that first floated over London last year during President Donald Trump’s visit to the city (which infuriated him).

The vendors sold the helium-filled balloons on Thursday ahead of Trump’s “Salute to America” July 4 celebration at the Lincoln Memorial.

According to NBC Washington, the balloons sold out after over 300 people pre-ordered them online.

And naturally the actual blimp that inspired the little balloons made its first appearance in D.C on Thursday, courtesy of the anti-war activists of Code Pink.

However, anti-Trump protesters aren’t allowed to bring the balloons to Trump’s event due to the park’s ban on helium items. That’s also why Code Pink’s blimp won’t able float over Trump’s festivities, so the group filled the blimp with air and parked it near the World War II Memorial instead.
