Why Was There a Huge Trump-Like Chicken Outside the White House?

Why Was There a Huge Trump-Like Chicken Outside the White House?

A giant inflatable chicken with a Donald Trump haircut has appeared outside the White House.

The man, documentary film maker Taran Singh Brar, chose to purchase and then erect this inflatable monstrosity in front of the White House as a form of protest against President Trump's policies - specifically because Brar says the president is "playing chicken" with North Korea.

Sadly, Trump may not even know that he should take the chicken as an insult. The likeness to the president is coincidence and unintended, and the inflatables were originally hatched as an attraction in Chinese shopping malls to celebrate the new year.

The Trump White House has already seen its fair share of visual protests, from puppets to a giant "Resist" banner unfurled from a crane.

According to ABC, Singh Brar bought the air-filled balloon for $1,300, raising the money through GoFundMe.

Images of a chicken with a Trump-like coiffure spread on social media and then to news outlets across the nation. Its feathered crown is side-swept to resemble Mr. Trump's hairstyle, which sometimes seems to defy the laws of physics.

One can shop for Trump-like 10 feet tall inflatable chickens for $500 on eBay. The president is not at the White House.

President Trump is not now at the White House.

The Trump chicken also was used as a mascot for tax marches across the country with protesters demanding the president release his tax returns. He's now "working" from his golf club in New Jersey.
