The Advocate's report of Trump's reaction to the bawling, diaper-clad baby blimp clutching a cellphone - designed by British artists to float over their Parliament to protest his visit - included reader responses.

Talking back to the president saying, “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London,” Brian Beckwith jeered, “Awww. Poor widdow trumpy doesn't feel welcome.“ And Charles Ritts lashed out this way: “I want to see that baby blimp flying everywhere including outside the White House.”

Going overboard

But not everyone in England was big on the protest.

Nigel Farage, former leader of the UK Independence Party, told the Daily Mail that the Trump takedown was “the biggest insult to a sitting US president ever.” Such blood-and-thunder talk doesn't fit the situation. The blimp wasn't the Hindenburg coming in for a landing at Lakehurst, New Jersey. No one died in the flyover and after two hours aloft, it was eased down and deflated.

Lampooning Lincoln

But here's the thing. There are cartoons skinning former American presidents way more insulting than parodying Trump as a baby. I'm thinking of “Babe Lincoln” by Bob Grossman that ran in the Nation in 2005 after the publication of the book “The Intimate World of Abraham Lincoln by psychologist CA Tripp who contended that the Great Emancipator was gay.

Indications of this have surfaced before. Slate noted some: He enjoyed writing poetry, dancing and snuggling with kittens. While such “proofs” are laughable, the cartoon is not. What you see is a Lincoln as a big-busted woman decked out like a Folies Bergere dancer in high heels and not much else. In spite of the British anger against Trump for his views on climage change, torture, immigration and his treatment of women, at least they didn't question his sexuality,

Body shaming

You cannot say the same about Americans who have satirized Trump.

Artist Illma Gore pictujred him in a paint in the nude with an emphatically small sex organ. Curiously, no American gallery would show it, but the Maddox Gallery in London took it on. In a similar way, a life-size nude statue of the president made in multiples by an artist known as Ginger, stood in cities throughout the land and also featured tiny genitals.

The work not only miniaturized his manhood, but also maximized his belly fat, and further marked him up with a lot of veins to show up his advanced years.

As cringe-worthy as these send-ups are, one might argue that Trump had it coming for body-shaminmg othes. The list is long. Examples include him saying Bette Midler is “extremely unattractive,” Rosie O'Donnell is a “a slob with a fat, ugly face,” Kim Kardashian has a “fat ass,” and Gail Collins “Has the face of a dog.” Next to all that the Brits' Disney-like cartoon let Trump off easy.
