Indian-Origin Activist Places Inflatable ‘Trump Chicken’ Outside White House


Washington: A giant inflatable chicken with a Donald Trump hair style has been placed near the White House by an Indian origin activist to protest the president’s standon releasing his tax returns, dealing with North Korea and engaging with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Taran Singh Brar, a documentary filmmaker, placed the”Chicken Don” in the lawn, just south of the White House and near the Washington Monument with due permission from the National Park Service and the Secret Service.

“The tallest thing they usually allow on the Ellipse isthe national Christmas tree,” he said. “They gave me a waiver for the 30-foot tall Chicken Don.” “Trump is too chicken to release his tax returns, to stand up to Putin,” he told the local media. “We are out here to criticise our president for being weak and ineffective as a leader and being 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,” Brar was quoted as saying by the Washington Examiner.

“Yet he wants a military parade in DC. It’s all incongruous, and we are here to make fun of him for that,”Brar said. according to whom the angry-looking chicken which has golden-orange hair and hand gestures in Trump’s style is available for purchase on eBay for USD 1,500. Early this year, Brar started an online fund raising campaign for this unique protest. “Hey everybody! We are raising money to bring Chicken Donto the White House.

Help the Chicken cross the road. Pennsylvania Avenue,” he wrote on his fund raising post Chicken March.
