The White House got an unusual visitor Wednesday — a massive, inflatable chicken with golden orange hair and an uncanny resemblance to Donald Trump.
The giant chicken, situated on the Ellipse facing 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, is a visual that organizers of the Tax Day March have used in the past to coax President Trump to release his tax returns.
The appearance of the orange-haired chicken delighted the Internet on Wednesday.

The issue of the president’s tax returns isn’t likely to disappear soon. Mr. Trump and Congress intend to move forward with tax reform this fall, and the topic of the president’s own taxes will likely resurface.
But this is not the first time the giant Trump-like chicken has caused a stir. shortly before Mr. Trump’s inauguration, the northern Chinese city of Taiyuan Mocked the erratic president with a 23-foot statue to celebrate the Year of the Rooster.
