It’s two days into President Donald Trump’s state visit to the United Kingdom and the English people have made it perfectly clear just how welcome the president is.
Just days after Trump’s UK popularity ratings and John McCain’s name were projected onto landmarks in London, thousands of protestors took to Trafalgar Square with signs, costumes, and chants decrying Donald Trump. However, one display is stealing the show.
See for yourself:

That’s right: some inventive protestors created a talking sculpture of the president on a golden toilet, a phone in his hand, randomly shouting some of Trump’s greatest hits, like “you are fake news!” and “I’m a very stable genius.”
People couldn’t help but admire the work of art.
He's tweeting. 😂

I've lost a lot of pride in Britain since the referendum, but this is what the British do very well. Standing up to people like Trump, but doing it with humour. Apart from anything else, it makes the criticism much harder for Trump to deflect!

But Trump on a Toilet wasn’t the only notable demonstration at the Trafalgar Square protests.

Trump just denied there are protests against him in UK and only said he saw supporters. Apparently trump thinks the baby trump float is in support of his visit! pic.twitter.com/5ulnIDGzVP
