A massive inflatable chicken with 'Donald Trump hair' has been spotted near the White House.



It's quite cute, isn't it?

The Trump Chicken made his first appearance back in April during the Tax March, and now he's made a return, currently residing in Ellipse Park, just behind the White House.

Images of the chicken spread across Twitter like wildfire and it wasn't long before the media picked up on it, too. Fox even reported on it via Facebook Live. Mostly people were just confused by the sight of the giant chicken, which I guess is fair enough.

This clip is absolute gold, by the way:

"That chicken is not something that is normally present at that location." Thanks for clearing that up, mate.

But then, documentary filmmaker Taran Singh Brar stepped up to claim responsibility for Chicken Don and explained the 'visual protest'.

Taran told Fox: "It means that the president is too afraid to release his tax returns, he is too afraid to stands to up Putin, and he is playing a game of chicken with North Korea, and yet he wants a military parade in Washington DC?

"It seems kind of bizarre and signs of a weak and insecure leader. What they say is that an image speaks a thousand words and this image does very well at piercing through and presenting Trump as the ineffective leader he is."

He told the news outlet the giant inflatable/visual protest cost him $1,300 (£1,000).

According to Fox, Taran, had to get permission from the Secret Service and the National Park Service to put Chicken Don out there. Surprisingly, they agreed.

President Trump wasn't at the White House yesterday when Chicken Don popped up, as he's currently on holiday in New Jersey. However, knowing what a keen fan of social media he is, it seems likely he's probably seen it.
