A huge inflatable chicken with orange hair and wings in the shape of President Trump’s hands was looming near the White House on Wednesday afternoon.
The 23-foot-tall poultry prop is similar to the inflatable chicken that protesters have used to egg on Trump to release his personal tax returns during Tax Day events on April 15.
Twitter was delighted by the visual.
”Breaking news about North Korea comes to a screeching halt due to an inflatable chicken in the white house lawn…God bless the USA…, ” Geo Betus wrote on Wednesday.
”So a massive inflatable chicken showed up at the White House today. In 2017 America, this seems completely normal,” NewsRadio 570 wrote.
One Twitter user joked that it was a mascot for Trump.
”Are you sure it’s protesters? I think it’s cute. Makes me wonder if that’s the mascot for his new #TrumpChicken franchise. #Yum,” said CovfefeBop.
The chicken also resembles one used to commemorate the Year of the Rooster in China in January.
It was set up outside a shopping mall in northern China when relations with the US were at a low point, the New York Times reported.
