A giant inflatable chicken with golden locks is back at the White House.
Back in April the so-called "Trump chicken" became a mascot during the Tax March. Now the inflatable poultry with a Trump-like hairdo is back, popping up Wednesday in the Ellipse park just behind the White House.
Many noticed something was different and pointed out the golden-haired chicken Wednesday.

One news station even had a Facebook Live of the chicken shot.
This man claimed responsibility for today’s chicken display. He told HuffPost that Trump is “too chicken” to release his tax returns and stand up to Russian president Vladimir Putin. He reportedly spent $1,300 on his visual protest.

Inflatable chickens are available on eBay for $500. They look almost identical to the Trump rooster statue that popped up in China last year. The chicken spotted at the White House Wednesday seems to make appearances every so often.
Too bad Trump is still in Bedminster, New Jersey, missing out on all the D.C. fun.
