The stunt has been organised by Taran Singh Brar, a documentary filmmaker, who has spent months seeking permission to stage the protest, notes The Telegraph.
“We’re here to criticize the president as a weak and ineffective leader,” he told ABC News. “He’s too afraid to release his tax returns, too afraid to stand up to Vladimir Putin, and now he’s playing chicken with North Korea.”
Money to buy the $1,500 inflatable chicken and insure the bird was raised via a GoFundMe page.
Agreement was also reached with the Secret Service for Mr Singh Brar to inflate the distinctive fowl on the grass between the White House South Lawn and Constitution Avenue.
