US President Donald Trump may be out of town on his 17-day-long vacation but people are still feeling his presence in Washington. While the POTUS is relaxing far away from the White House, people were stunned to see a giant chicken-shaped balloon bearing Trump’s hairstyle floating near its premises. Yes, an inflatable rooster donning Trump like golden locks baffled tourists and television cameras on Wednesday afternoon.
However, the rooster or the ‘Trump Chicken’ is not new to Washington. Earlier in April, the quirky avian became a mascot during the Tax March, where protesters hoped to put pressure on the President to release his personal returns. Though that didn’t go according to plan, nevertheless, “Chicken Don” aka Trump Chicken became a ‘yuge’ star! Unsurprisingly, it even has its own Twitter account — @TaxMarchChicken, because how else will one keep a tab of ‘Twitter-in-chief’. Now the helium balloon is back, popping up in the Ellipse Park just behind the White House its south side.
Twitterati were thrilled and lost their calm seeing the caricature, which has been installed by an Indian-origin documentary filmmaker and activist Taran Singh Brar. According to USA Today, Brar said that he obtained all necessary permits for the installation from the Secret Service as well as the National Parks Service for his gripping protest.
