Donald Trump Jr poked fun at his father by sharing a meme that depicts him as a giant balloon baby – saying it is ‘funny’.

The 45-year-old retweeted the picture of the Trump Baby Blimp after someone joked that it should be flown over Beijing after US authorities shot down China‘s spy balloon.

On Saturday, an alleged ‘spy balloon’ was shot down off the coast of South Carolina by American fighter jets after crossing over multiple U.S. states.

Trump Jr previously tweeted that Americans should just be allowed to ‘do their thing’ and shoot the balloon down themselves.

After the Chinese balloon was felled, he retweeted the picture of his father’s likeness as an angry baby – complete with a cell phone.

He captioned the picture of the balloon, which was designed for trolling Trump during a visit to London, with ‘not gonna lie…. This is funny’.

It’s not clear if his father is aware of the picture, or his son’s amusement at the baby blimp, as he was previously banned from Twitter.

The balloon took to the skies, above Parliament Square, during protests over Trump’s state visit to the UK in June 2018.

The 45th president later compared the incident with the spy balloon and ensuing diplomatic crisis to the chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal that his successor, President Joe Biden, presided over in August 2021.

Writing on his Truth Social app he said: ‘The Chinese Balloon situation is a disgrace, just like the Afghanistan horror show, and everything else surrounding the grossly incompetent Biden Administration,’ the former president wrote on his app Truth Social.

‘They are only good at cheating in elections, and disinformation — and now they are putting out that a Balloon was put up by China during the Trump Administration, in order to take the ‘heat’ off the slow-moving Biden fools.

President Biden told reporters that he wanted the balloon shot down last Wednesday but was cautioned against making the order due to the risk of civilians getting hurt by falling debris.

Former President Trump hit back by saying: ‘China had too much respect for ‘TRUMP’ for this to have happened, and it NEVER did. JUST FAKE DISINFORMATION!’

And on Sunday, Fox News reported that at least one balloon flew over parts of Texas and Florida while Trump was in office.

Multiple Trump officials aside from the former president have also disputed the Pentagon’s assessment and relevant media reports.

Meanwhile, the Chinese government blasted the U.S. shooting down the balloon as an ‘overreaction.’

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said: ‘The U.S. used force to attack our civilian unmanned airship, which is an obvious overreaction.

‘We express solemn protest against this move by the US side.’

Beijing warned it ‘reserves the right to use necessary means to deal with similar situations.’
