(RNN) – Protesters placed a giant inflatable rooster – with President Donald Trump’s signature hairstyle – to call Trump “chicken” for not releasing his tax returns.
The bird’s appearance caused an uproar on social media.
At least one enthusiast offered a close-up view.
It’s not the first time this bird has made an appearance in recent months. In April, a 13-foot-tall version of the chicken accompanied protesters at tax marches across the U.S.
A Chinese manufacturer released the inflatables in January to usher in the Year of the Rooster. The company commissioned a Seattle-based designer, who claimed that the resemblance to the president was purely coincidental.
Since its debut, the inflatable has been an enigma, with reporters searching for a back story.
