Washington D.C. is filled with so many different historic sites. The Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and so many other places represented the rich history of both Washington and the United States of America. But people visiting the White House yesterday were greeted with the sight of a new monuments of sort: a giant inflatable chicken that resembles Donald Trump.

Social media exploded yesterday as photos emerged of an inflatable Donald Trump chicken overlooked the White House. The mystery was quickly solved when an artist and documentary filmmaker from California named Taran Singh Brar came out as the mastermind behind the chicken.
Brar said he thought of the chicken plan months ago, and it took him four months to acquire the proper permits and paperwork needed to display the Trump chicken.
Obviously, posting a giant chicken that resembles the president next to the White House is a symbolic message. Brar said he wanted to call Trump out as a weak leader, saying, "He’s too afraid to release his tax returns, too afraid to stand up to Vladimir Putin, and playing chicken with North Korea."
Of course, many people pointed out the possible danger of calling President Trump a "chicken" considering just a few days ago he basically threatened to launch a war against North Korea.
Many people also pointed out that President Trump is on vacation at the moment up in New Jersey, so he wouldn't be able to see the chicken in person. But Brar pointed out that considering the president's frequent use of Twitter and social media, it's very likely he'll catch wind of the incident.
Also, Brar did not create the actual inflatable chicken. It's actually created and designed by a Chinese company, and they unveiled the product shortly after the 2016 election.
In fact, you can even purchase your own Trump chicken on eBay. Maybe only consider doing so if you live in a highly liberal area.
