Giant Trump Chicken sails around San Francisco, and it’s cooler than Trump baby
A 33-foot balloon replica of President Donald Trump resembling a chicken dressed in prison stripes set sail from the San Francisco Bay on a boat. The Trump chicken has the President’s signature hairstyle and frown, and was transported on a boat called the Alcatraz Prison Transport. The location is not too far from Alcatraz Island, which housed a high security prison that was later closed in 1960.
Unlike the Trump baby blimp that was made famous by protesting Londoners, Trump chicken has a name. In a direct jibe to Trump, the structure is named Prisoner 45, referring to Trump being the 45th President of the United States.
Besides the oversized chicken, the Alcatraz Prison Transport had a banner asking the president to release his taxes. According to reports, this is something very common among US politicians but Trump so far, hasn’t done anything of the sort.
A fundraising campaign was set up and according to a page titled Send President Chicken off to Jail, onlookers can “mock and squawk and swear like you’ve never sworn before in a proud expression of your First Amendment right. Bring your friends. Make some signs and banners. Wear costumes. Dance. Everyone remember we’re still free.”
