Giant Inflatable Chicken With Trump Hair Appears Near White House

Trump Chicken

Well, this is odd:

A large inflatable chicken meant to resemble President Trump was placed near the White House on Wednesday.

The inflatable chicken, which features a golden coif of hair and hand gestures similar to Trump’s, is modeled after a statue unveiled in December as the mascot for a Chinese mall. Since the statue’s unveiling last year, smaller copies have appeared across the United States.

The inflatable chicken that appeared Wednesday appears to have been put up near the Ellipse area by the White House that is open to the public.

Here’s a better idea of where it is compared to the White House:

Trump, of course, is not in the White House today. Instead, he’s on a “working vacation” at his golf course in New Jersey:

    I hope this really, really … really … bothers Trump.

    Being successfully mocked is the worst thing that Trump can imagine.

    That’s when flips out and calls people “fat cows” and whatnot on Twitter.

    Have you been watching Preacher?

    Hell, in that universe, is the place where you constantly relive your worst moment.

    Eugene (Arseface) has been inadvertently sent to Hell and he is subject to the moment where he inadvertently caused his love / crush to be killed.

    Hitler relives the moment when he was rejected from art school.

    Trump’s Hell is where everyone is laughing at him.

    What is damning and unignorable is that it is just, correct, and apt that they are laughing at him. That cuts deep.

    Wait. Trump’s unstable? Trump is going to get us into a war with North Korea? Then the idiot think it is wise to taunt Trump with a chicken effigy?

    Doesn’t matter. It has nothing to do with inflatable chickens.
    Divine Providence is running the show now.
    Fox News says so.

    Since the guy went to a lot of trouble to set up this protest, it seems only courteous to note his point.

    We’re here to criticize the president as a weak and ineffective leader,” said Singh Brar. “He’s too afraid to release his tax returns, too afraid to stand up to Vladimir Putin, and now he’s playing chicken with North Korea.

    Hard to argue with that.

    Oddly, @JKB: has a point, Trump could be goaded into doing something stupid, beyond his norm. Looks to me like Medvedev’s tweet was designed to do exactly that. But what are we do to, just ignore the 800 pound insane chicken in the WH?

    @Franklin: I am irreligious, and I also try not to be anti-religious. Especially around my brother, the Reverend Bruce. But it’s hard to get around that religion is a root cause of our current political dysfunction. There are an awful lot of people who will vote for any lying arse Republican who says he’s agin abortion, no matter what else he does. And too many pastors who are happy to profit from it. And way too many Republicans who are happy to take advantage of this.

    Dead on, exactly.
    The most thin-skinned public figure I’ve ever seen.
    Haven’t seen that show, but perhaps I should check it out.

    Highly recommend Preacher.

    You can stream it with the AMC app or hulu. Or Mondays at 9/8 pm on AMC.

    The comic book fanboys hate season 1 because it is a prequel and not canon, but I think it is the stronger season by far.

    WOW! That is one big mother-clucker. But I’m not sure it was the “breast” idea to egg Trump on at this time, because he’s just cocky enough to start a war. Hopefully it won’t ruffle his feathers too much. Besides, he’s cooped up in New Jersey now.
    I was worried the clever prankster, Taran Singh Brar, was going to fun “afowl” of the law, but he got the necessary permits. And no doubt he’s hatching up another wonderful prank mocking Trump while we’re still enjoying this one.

    Understandable, but the timing could not have been worse. We have a malignant narcissist contemplating war at the moment.

    It’s all fun and games until someone gets nuked…

    Frankly, if I had that guy in front of me now I would slap him so hard it would stupid his grand kids.
