THE BBC was caught in a bias row last night after it hosted a giant Donald Trump baby blimp on its daily current affairs show.
A replica of the huge inflatable appeared on the BBC Two Victoria Derbyshire show, sparking an avalanche of complaints.
The blimp depicts the US President in a nappy and clutching a mobile phone.
Protesters will fly the larger 20ft version in the capital during Mr Trump’s three-day visit.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan granted permission several weeks ago for protesters to fly the inflatable.
One Twitter user said: “No longer can we be proud of the BBC. Why do we pay for this biased rubbish? Shame on you.”
Another added: “The BBC is meant to be a reputable and impartial state broadcaster. They could have fooled me.”
A BBC spokesperson said: “We featured a smaller version of the blimp to illustrate the protests due to take place and highlight the controversy about whether the blimp should fly.”
