Uh-oh, angry Twitter rant is coming.
Looks like someone played an extremely perfect prank on US President Donald Trump. A giant inflatable chicken with a little too familiar features on the Ellipse between the White House and Washington Monument in DC yesterday. Trump may be out of town, but no worries, someone is keeping a beady eye on his home while he's away.
There was also a live stream of the 30-foot-tall chicken right outside the President's residence, and apparently, it looked like it was staging a ‘coop'.
It turns out that the balloon was set up by documentary filmmaker Taran Singh Brar as a way to protest the president “being a weak and ineffective leader.”
Taran Singh Brar says he bought it for $1300. It's a visual protest. "Trump is too chicken to release his tax returns, to stand up to Putin" pic.twitter.com/JLohv0yl82— Philip Lewis (@Phil_Lewis_) August 9, 2017
While talking to Huffington Post about Trump, he said, “He's too afraid to release his tax returns, too afraid to stand up to Vladimir Putin.” He also added that Trump is “playing chicken with North Korea”.
Obviously, anything related to Trump always catches Twitter's eyes, here are some of the best reactions.

"Trump Chicken" stood tall, had a crowd in Washington that loved him, and didn't say a word.
He already had a better 2017 than Real Trump.
Trump was nowhere to be seen, but that didn't stop ‘Chicken Trump' from its organic, free range protest.
