A giant inflatable chicken with Donald Trump-esque hair caused a real commotion at the White House

The person who inflated it said it was there to make fun of the president.

A giant inflatable chicken bearing a pretty striking resemblance to Donald Trump has appeared close to the White House.

Filmmaker Taran Singh Brar erected the golden-haired clucker behind the US president’s residence, while Trump is out of town, and images of it quickly flooded social media.

It was quite the sight.

Singh Brar said the protest was to “criticise our leader for being weak and ineffective”.

He added that Trump was “too afraid to release his tax returns, too afraid to stand up to Putin – and now engaged in a game of chicken with Kim Jong Un… we’re here to make fun of him for that”.

Guess it’s pretty clear what the chicken is supposed to represent then…
