Trump supporter fights back declaring: ‘That is a national disgrace! Shame on you!’
A British Trump supporter live-streamed herself bursting the “Trump Baby” balloon with a pair of scissors as protesters attempted to fly it in London’s Hyde Park on Tuesday.
Anti-Trump activists have been flying the balloon over London to mock the president during his official state visit to the UK.
The woman, who goes by the name “Based Amy,” was subsequently surrounded by angered protesters before being arrested by London police for carrying a blade.
Video footage captured the moment she popped the balloon before declaring “did it.”
“That’s a national disgrace,” she shouts as she’s surrounded by angry protesters.
“The president of the United States is the best president ever!” she declares.
The video shows the woman with a bloody hand after the incident, although it’s unclear whether the injury happened as she stabbed the blimp.

“I think Donald Trump’s balloon is not very well,” she said as she walked away from the scene.
“He’s going down rapidly for a reason.”
During the video, an officer appeared to confront her, prompting her to declare “the police are coming after me.”
The baby blimp was originally flown during President Trump’s previous UK visit last summer.
The balloon became a symbol of London protesters’ disdain for the president as he visited British leaders on Tuesday.
The group that carried the balloon reportedly attributed the woman’s actions to her “far right” inclinations.
A group organizer spokesman confirmed the balloon had been burst, according to The Independent, saying:
“It’s not surprising that the far right would want to meet freedom of expression with violence.”
The incident was just the latest indication that tensions were rising to a potentially dangerous level in the British capital.
In an attempt to maintain their safety, police reportedly barricaded 20 Trump supporters in a pub amid protests.
One Trump supporter was shouted down as “Nazi scum” and had a milkshake thrown on him.
