Not all of the action was inside of Bryant Denny Stadium on Saturday as the stupid Trump baby balloon’s trip to Tuscaloosa ended very badly.
The balloon has become akin to a religious icon to the wretched souls of the anti-Trump resistance and has traveled the globe to appear at protests over a lost election that the idiots will never accept.
With President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump making the trip to attend the epic Alabama vs. LSU game, so did the balloon only it ended up being stabbed and deflated by a man who apparently dislikes socialists.
It was mere days ago that a local activist exulted that enough suckers shelled out their money through a GoFundMe campaign to book the balloon for a protest during the game.
WE DID IT!!! Baby Trump is coming to Tuscaloosa! Thanks for making this endeavor a thing. All extra funds will he donated to the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery. Will update once we have a location. He needs a lot a space seeing as he is a big baby. https://t.co/3Ygh44Aw5r

But the Trump Baby’s ill-fated journey took a turn for the worst after a man who has been identified as 32-year-old Hoyt Hutchinson stabbed the balloon, inflicting serious enough damage so that it was put out of commission.

A suspect was taken into custody Saturday after he allegedly stabbed a “Baby Trump” protest balloon on display near the University of Alabama, where President Trump was attending the Crimson Tide’s football game against LSU.
Hoyt Hutchinson, 32, was charged with felony first-degree criminal mischief, according to the Tuscaloosa News. The paper reported that Hutchinson posted a Facebook Live video saying he planned to deflate the balloon depicting Trump as a crying baby wearing a diaper and holding a cell phone.
“I’m going down here to make a scene, so y’all watch the news,” he said in the video. “This is pathetic. I’m fixing to get rowdy.”

Additional details according to AL.com:
Hutchinson posted a video on Facebook shortly before the incident, saying he was “going down here to make a scene…y’all watch the news….I’m shaking I’m so mad right now. I’m fixin’ to pop this balloon. Stay tuned. It should be interesting.”
Jim Girvan, an organizer of the balloon protests, told the Associated Press Hutchinson charged the balloon with a knife and cut an 8-foot-long (2.4-meter-long) gash in the back.
A GoFundMe page organized by Hutchinson asks for money for restitution for the balloon, saying he was charged with “felony criminal mischief after deflation of the disrespectful baby trump balloon. Hoyt made sure our beloved president didn’t have to see this disrespectful balloon on the streets of Ttown today!!”
In 14 hours, it had raised more than $16,000, surpassing its goal of $6,000.
After he was released on bond, Hutchinson posted another Facebook video, with the game playing on a TV behind him as people cheered and laughed.
“Some liberals tried to come to my hometown and start some trouble. That ain’t happening,” Hutchinson said in that video. “I did get arrested. I got charged. That’s all right. I’d do it again given the opportunity.”
Hutchinson then asked people to contribute to his GoFundMe, promising that whatever was leftover from having to pay to replace the balloon would go to the Republican Party.
“I’m glad all y’all enjoyed all that, better than this game right here,” Hutchinson said of Alabama’s loss to LSU.
Hoyt has said that any excess of money from the GoFundMe campaign would be donated to the Republican party.
Even more horrifying for the socialist enemies of America must have been the scene from inside the stadium there the POTUS and Melania were greeted with thunderous applause.
Make no mistake, Alabama is Trump country and Democrats are going to find that out come next November.
