Large inflatable chicken stares down White House

In a video posted on social media on Wednesday, activist and documentary maker Brar said he hoped to "bring awareness" to what he said was a "bad and destabilising" United States president.

A giant inflatable chicken with Donald Trump-like golden hair is now staring down the White House. The balloon was inflated Wednesday on the grass between Constitution Avenue and the White House South Lawn. "Brar says he bought his "30-foot chicken Don" for a competitively priced $1,300".

Singh Brar said the protest was to "criticise our leader for being weak and ineffective". He also said Trump was "playing chicken with North Korea".

A giant inflatable chicken was set up in the public area near the White House known as The Ellipse.

A giant inflatable chicken was the focus of a protest Wednesday near the White House. "And then I realized it's actually better, because the [symbolism] works and the Secret Service won't be as jumpy".




The chicken's wings are even making similar hand gestures to Mr Trump's. The statue was erected to celebrate the Year of the Rooster shortly before Trump's inauguration when US-Sino relations were at a low point.

Trump is now on a 17-day vacation in Bedminister, New Jersey.

Naturally, people were delighted by the sight of the chicken.

You can see the resemblance of the inflatable chicken near the White House today (below) to that mall mascot statue (above).

Brar went as far to request a permit of an inflatable chicken, with Trump-like hair, to sit directly behind the oval office.
