    This is not for the first time a balloon caricature of Trump wearing a diaper and holding a cellphone in his hand has been vandalized during protests. This time, however, observers suggest that the damage is irreparable.

    US President Donald Trump appeared in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on Saturday, attending a Alabama-Louisiana State football game alongside several local Republican lawmakers.

    In contrast to reports of a warm welcome for POTUS at the game, his floating caricature - 'Baby Trump' balloon - was not so lucky, as it was knifed by a protester in a park located close to the site where the University of Alabama football game was held.

    According to multiple reports, the man who "attacked" Baby Trump has been arrested. Twitterians shared photos and video of the alleged arrest.
