Of course you won't be stoned, Spiegy. You know that.

A few minutes ago I saw something on line about his office (not sure which, perhaps on Fifth Ave), being festooned with photos of him. I'm not surprised that the same is true at the NJ location.

I hope that none of your bbq guests refused later invitations to your house because of the napkins and towels.

That balloon is awesome!

And I see that they want to fly it in Bedminster, NJ, in view of his golf course. Will I be stoned here if I tell you that 2 years ago my company (we're a Jewish non-profit nursing home in NJ) held our annual golf fundraiser at Trump's Bedminster golf course? It was very controversial and we lost some golfers that year because of it. It was before he was elected and basically the committee at that time decided that the reputation of the course and the price they gave us was worth it.... Now, of course, the committee would never book it - and I'm also sure that the golf club wouldn't be so accommodating with their prices. But at the time, when he was still just a candidate people felt they could do it despite, you know, Trump being Trump.

The place was gorgeous, very over the top, with framed Trump photos and magazine covers all over the club house. I and some of the other volunteers couldn't help grabbing a few gold monogrammed paper towels/napkins from the ladies locker room as souvenirs. I think my husband put them out for a bbq one night. Oh well! emoticon

I love it! He is going to have a meltdown over it. Watch Twitter for it. It will surely happen.

Oooh, I'd love to see that in the T'day parade!!!! Though if it flew in WA DC, I could see the Washington Monument jumping up to impale and deflate the balloon.

Nah. My couch is a nice parade viewing stand. Climate controlled, no traffic, food and drink, little to no bathroom lines. When that last one is an issue, nothing else matters.

In the style of King Kong climbing the Empire State Building.

Heck, Mark, if Macy's has the fortitude, you and your battalion can pack up and camp here for the weekend. I haven't been at the parade since about age 10.

Needs permits. Nothing taller than the Washington Monument. Personally I think the balloon needs to climb the monument.

You know that Stephen Colbert, who often features an animated version of baby trump, will have fun with this.

I challenge Macy's to put one in the Thanksgiving parade!!!!!!! (to quote Phebe)
