There’s an inflatable chicken version of Donald Trump outside the White House

Please enjoy this ^^ art. Filmmaker Taran Singh Brar set up an inflatable chicken with Trump Hair just outside the White House. Brar said he did it because Trump is a chicken: “He’s too afraid to release his tax returns, too afraid to stand up to Vladimir Putin.” Bless.

Meanwhile, here’s something terrifying: Donald Trump is improvising all of it. Most of us assumed that fact anyway, but it’s another thing altogether when the emperor is escalating a conflict with a nuclear-armed North Korea and talking nonsense about “fire and fury.” The New York Times reports that Trump’s advisors braced themselves ahead of his little temper tantrum, and that the “fire and fury” comment came during the moment where the only thing in front of Trump was a fact-sheet about the opioid crisis. So, he’s going off-script and escalating sh-t just because he’s bored in a meeting. Awesome. Meanwhile, the few diplomats and American foreign-policy experts are literally telling North Korea to just ignore our crazy president. It’s not that Trump is consciously trying to out-crazy Kim Jong Un as a diplomatic tactic – it’s that Trump is legitimately crazier than Kim Jong Un.

Of course, Donald Trump is always proving that he can be a petty child on many different fronts all at once. This week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was in Kentucky, trying to explain why the GOP f–ked up their healthcare votes so badly. McConnell explained it this way:

“Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process. Part of the reason I think people think we’re under-performing is because of too many artificial deadlines unrelated to the reality of the legislature which may have not been understood.”

[Via CNN]

Of all the sh-t McConnell has ever said, this barely registers as any kind of outrageous statement. It’s actually pretty true – if the GOP had taken their time and really worked on a bill that could have been embraced by their entire caucus, and McConnell had been given the time to massage his caucus, perhaps he could have passed something. It would have been horrible, of course. But he’s right. But OMG, McConnell’s assessment made Emperor Baby Fists SO MAD.

And you know what? Donald Trump isn’t wrong either. The GOP establishment worked their base into a lather for seven years about Obamacare and then when they fumbled it when their votes actually meant something, of course they all looked like morons. I actually wish Trump would do more of this. “This” being “sniping at his own party.” “This” being “taking down the sad-faced turtle known as Mitch McConnell.”

Meanwhile, the FBI conducted a “pre-dawn raid” of Paul Manafort’s home last month and we’re only hearing about it now. I want to marry Bob Mueller.

    I love this, but it would’ve been far more effective had a put it up when Cheeto Mussolini was actually in the WH- isn’t he in NJ for 2 weeks?

    • JEM says:

      The artist who made the Tan Chicken needed to wait for permits to be approved, so that’s why it happened now. He may not have had a choice as to when that Gold Cock (Trump’s dream/what he makes Melania call him) was able to be released.

        I have to catch a flight in a few hours and do not have time to run downtown to see this. I am soooo disappointed. This is the ultimate selfie opportunity!!!!!

      • lightpurple says:

        @Megan, my cousin was taking selfies with it all afternoon yesterday. We got selfies of her with it, of her with the owner, of her toddler with it. She’s going to use the one with her son as her Holiday Card this year.

      • Megan says:

        @lightpurple That is awesome!!!!

      • magnoliarose says:

        My brother is going with his wife to selfie with it. I wish I could.
        @lightpurple That is going to be hilarious as a card.

        @lightpurple Now I wish I was on your cousin’s holiday card list 😂

      My words exactly. I just love this.

      Would’ve been nice, but we know that he will see it because he’s a 70 year old teenager glued to his device and that’s all that matters. As a matter of fact, I bet being absent makes him even more upset about it.

      • lucy2 says:

        Good point – for sure he’s seen it. I do hope it makes him throw a temper tantrum, as long as they hide the nuke codes first.

    • Esmom says:

      I imagine it will still be there when he gets back? Unless some angry MAGAt pops it in a Trumpian fit.

      Speaking of Trump supporters, this still isn’t worrying them. I saw guy comment on a friend’s FB post about NK that he “just listened to a general who said Trump has better instincts on how to deal with NK than Obama, Bush and Clinton.” My comment is what general? What news outlet? I just can’t anymore.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Maybe it was a bot? I try to imagine they are all bots because the thought that people can be so obtuse is too much for me to process. Try it. It can be a source of comfort. It isn’t wrong to lie to ourselves in these dark times as we white knuckle it to the end. Wine and self-delusion are our armor.

      • Esmom says:

        No, sigh, I wish, his response was very bot-like. The guy is a real actual FB friend of my friend who lives in our town. They walk among us.

      • CynicalAnn says:

        I’m sure he saw it on the state run tv channel, Fox News.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Dang it. I thought I had the answer. These are hard times. I am not even snarking. It feels bad when someone I like loves Tange. I can’t be around them and it creates a distance that I can’t do anything about.

        Fox has become absurd with Sean Hannity lying like a rug every single day.

      Personal moment of joy I wanted to share with you all:
      For the first time, a Trump voter I know told me yesterday that she no longer supports him.

      I’m celebrating every victory, folks!

      • Kitten says:

        Wow we need more stories like this. Very heartening.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        It gave my heart hope. :D

      • FLORC says:

        It’s happening! Even fox news is pretty steady in questioning 2scoops. That he’s such a joke. That he tweets so often. That he sounds like a bratty child. It’s all noticed. He acts like he has no respect towards his post. Has no Republican value system.
        They believed. They gave him a chance. They’re turning their backs. It’s glorious.

  2. Mermaid says:

    The man who did this is an American hero!!! It’s so gratifying to watch them turn and eat their own. Also, can’t wait to see the Mooch on the Late Show!!!!

  3. Jenns says:

    1. The chicken is funny, but I wish Trump was actually at the WH. Also, the wings should’ve been really tiny.
    2. I would love to see Trump be the end of Mitch McConnell. They thought they could control him and get agendas passed. LOL.
    3. We now live an a time where the president’s word means jack sh*t. And I don’t know how we get that trust back. Even with a new president, the effects of Orange Toilet Water will be felt for years.

    • Megan says:

      I strongly encourage Trump to disparage, humiliate and otherwise demean the man with the power to stop any and all of Trump’s legislative priorities. My sincere hope right now is that McConnell is a petty bitch who will put pettiness ahead of party and stick it to Trump.

    • Wilma says:

      Your next president could be the most mediocre person ever to be president and everyone would think he or she was the best. People will be relieved to return to normal.

        Can Dems run Michelle Obama in 2020? Is that realistic?

        And I say that as someone who loves MO. But, we need to leave her alone. We do not deserve her. Let her enjoy her life.

      • lucy2 says:

        I love her and would vote for her in a heartbeat, but I don’t think she wants that, and shouldn’t be pushed into it. It has to be one of the worst and hardest jobs ever, no one should be pushed into it.

      Tiny wings, LOL ! Super spot on !

    • Tiffany :) says:

      “We now live an a time where the president’s word means jack sh*t. And I don’t know how we get that trust back.”

      Yes, this is so troubling. When we do experience some kind of horror, will our allies believe our claims?

      I was reading an article yesterday about diplomats in Japan and South Korea. They were asking if Trump knew what an “ally” was, because he has really been reckless on the North Korea issue and they are the most vulnerable. They couldn’t understand why he wouldn’t take the victory of the UN vote (where Russia and China voted against NK) and let that policy “take its bite” before escalating things further. He is just such an ignorant fool when it comes to international relations.

  4. snowflake says:

    I hope Trump is gone soon. Surely they won’t let him be in office for 4 years. It’s too embarrassing. I betcha Pence signed on because RNC said Trump will only be there short term, then we will remove him. Confidentially of course

  5. Nicole says:

    The chicken was hysterical. I was laughing quite a bit thinking about how mad trump was at it.
    And yea McConnell we know. But here’s what else we know: you had seven years to draft something that was not completely heinous. So instead of b*tching about the vote maybe think about the fact that the GOP only knows how to say no.
    And NK has already come out and said that the only way to deal with trump is force. So Guam, Hawaii, Japan, Cali better brace themselves. Especially Guam.

    • Eric says:

      @ Nicole
      We here in California respectfully disagree that we should be worried about NK. While its an absurd “look at this shiny object,” Emperor Zero is not succeeding in either a) deflecting from the Mueller pre-dawn raids nor b) convincing anyone that NK is a serious threat.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Eric- as a fellow CA resident, I can assure you that plenty of us take NK seriously as a threat, all while following the Trump/Russia investigation.

      • Lightpurple says:

        I have family and friends in CA but also in South Korea and Hawaii. Can I worry? Also, I don’t trust Trump not to initiate an attack

      • Isabelle says:

        I live on west coast, literally on the edge of it and people here are worried. For the first time in a while people yesterday were talking about something other than Trump, NK and war. You do realize who is in charge right now? What gives you comfort about the man he will do the rational & right thing in this situation?

      • teacakes says:

        Yeah this sounds like an attempt at Wag the Dog.

    • Nicole says:

      A huge chunk of my friend group actually lives in Cali. All of them are worried and take the threat very seriously

      • Eric says:

        Rapunzel and Nicole

        I’d like to hear exactly how you think NK is a threat to CA. Please give me a logical scenario in which NK can directly threaten CA. No hyperbole or “if” scenarios, as in “if NK can guide a missile 2000+ miles, then…” of “if they can mount a nuclear warhead on a booster, then….”

      • Rapunzel says:

        Eric- NK is a serious threat. That’s all I said. Where did I say NK was gonna nuke CA? I’m not building a fall out shelter, but I’m not blithely dismissing the threat. Not necessarily to CA, but the world.

      • Eric says:

        Guys, not trying to be an asshat but NK is a threat to their region just like Hamas, Hezbollah, IS, the Taliban et al is a threat to theirs. You may even argue that IS is a more dangerous threat than NK since they strike in Western European countries. Your alt-right neighbors pose a bigger threat to your community than NK poses to Guam. Bannon and Emperor Zero pose the biggest threat to CA, HI, and the other 48 states. NK is an actual threat to Seoul and Tokyo, but no farther.
        Everyone needs to calm themselves a bit.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Eric- I get what you’re saying. And of course you’re not being an asshat. But I do think your casual dismissal of NK is naive. The truth is we know very little about their nuclear advancements. Much is speculative. And they appear to be advancing quicker than anticipated. Have they been given help? Possible.

        I’m not saying panic. Not saying make it a priority. But keep an eye out? Yes.

      • Eric says:

        I get you Rapunzel. Thank you.

        I appreciate you and your comments on here. Thanks to everyone who posts here. Makes things way more bearable.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Right back at ya, Eric. And isn’t it sad how much stress and worry this admin is causing?

      • Eric says:

        Yes, Rapunzel! This administration is embarrassing but I find lots of solace and a few laughs at my usual first a.m. stop, celebitchy!

      • Isabelle says:

        @Eric, he threatened California (also said he could reach Seattle) sometime ago, his nukes would be able to reach them.

    • bluhare says:

      Some of us up here in Washington aren’t exactly excited either. We’ve got Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks . . . . and a big nuclear sub facility.

      • meowren says:

        the last reports i saw were that the missles could “only” reach as far as midwest USA. i’m in CA and when i first read the threats i turned white as a ghost. i’m scared for everyone honestly.

    • CynicalAnn says:

      I’m in SoCal-I am not seriously worried about a nuclear strike.

  6. Jerusha says:

    Memo to trumpkins-don’t fuck with Robert Mueller, he’s a thousand times the man you are. And he believes in service to country, not self. He’s coming for you.
    “A graduate of Princeton University, Mueller served as a Marine Corps officer during the Vietnam War, receiving the Bronze Star Medal with Combat “V” for heroism and the Purple Heart Medal. After graduating from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1973, he worked at a private firm in San Francisco for three years until his appointment as an assistant U.S. Attorney in the same city. Prior to his appointment as FBI director, Mueller served as a United States Attorney, as assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division and as acting deputy attorney general.”

    • third ginger says:

      First, let’s “hatch” a plan for a bloodless coup to have the chicken replace Trump. Also, having lived in Virginia for 30 years, I have gotten a kick out of the fact that Mueller went to UVA and Comey went to undergraduate school at William & Mary, my daughter’s alma mater. This state really does have amazing public universities.

      • Megan says:

        Well I never thought I’d see the day when I had more confidence in an inflatable chicken than POTUS.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @thirdginger VA does have great schools and you have a museum I love that has a cool Art Nouveau collection. You mention your daughter often and it always comes through how much you love her and champion her.

        @ Megan Yes dear we are there now. Chicken v Tangerine and Chicken wins.

      • Megan says:

        If anyone needs me I will be over at Instagram looking at kittens, baby goats and kits, while I repeat over and over, “it’s just a bad dream, it’s just a bad dream …”

      • third ginger says:

        Megan, there is also the great story on twitter about the man in Texas who shot an armadillo. The bullet bounced off and hit the shooter in the arm. The caption was “Karmadillo.” This sustained me all of yesterday!!

      • CynicalAnn says:

        W&M is a great school! (And a beautiful campus.) Our friends recently moved from CA to Va and were thrilled about that school being public (and relatively affordable) for their college aged daughter.

    • OhDear says:

      Someone on Twitter noted that you know people fear and respect him when his middle name is Swan and the internet hasn’t gone after him for that.
      /I thought the tweet was funny.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Mueller apparently gave up millions to take this job. Mad props to the Swan King!

      • holly hobby says:

        His whole gang of Untouchables gave up millions to join in this investigation. Their financial disclosures came out yesterday. These are all millionaires who make a good living in big firms. They gave that up for the service of their country. So Dickless Ken and Complicit Barbie, what are you going to give to the country?

    • WhatwasThat? says:

      Why warn them?..Let them carry on and please incriminate yourself with every denial!!!..Yes especially when you draw a line in the sand over banks…which banks are we not to look at Your Empoorer Highness Sir?..Oh Banca. de no we will keep away from that!!..Anyone else..?…OK don’t look at Juniors loan in Quatar and then calling them terrorist when the deal doesn’t go through…yes very definately nothing to do with business and government?…Please continue…!!!!!

    • pinetree13 says:

      Did you guys hear that congressman on MSN today? He said that they are trying to get Mueller out based on conflict of interest. The guy ACTUALLY SAID on AIR that Mueller should recuse himself but that Sessions should NOT have recused himself.

      Oh and their argument is that it’s cause Comey and Mueller are friends. That’s their reasoning.

      It was sickening.

      I believe it was an Arizona Congressman???

  7. HelloSunshine says:

    I’m watching CBS right now and listening to how everyone (our military, Japan, etc.) is picking up the slack because our president is an idiot.
    He very much reminds me of my grandma who had dementia and it makes me wonder if the people surrounding the president are just giving him the illusion that he’s in charge? Then they get to remain the majority and in power and Trump is just a very bad talking head? Ugh, I sound like one of those conspiracy people I hate so much don’t I? Lol

    • holly hobby says:

      I want to know when his criminal defense atty Jay SUCKulew is commenting on state matters like North Korea? He is not an employee with the federal govt the last time I checked. He should stick to his day job, failing to defend his clients.

      • HelloSunshine says:

        I was also curious about this. His attorney is not a part of the White House staff but seems to have access to any and all info. This administration is such a freaking mess, up is down and ethics aren’t real

  8. grabbyhands says:

    I’m being robbed of the hilarity of this moment by the knowledge that the lunatic in charge is just stupid enough to take it as some kind of challenge to do things even dumber than he already has, although threatening North Korea using language straight out of Game of Thrones fanfiction is already pretty bad.

    It will be interesting to see what comes of this raid on Manafort’s house. If he has any kind of sense, he would have destroyed anything even remotely incriminating months ago.

    • Hoopjumper says:

      This was my reaction. I am too freaked out right now to think that baiting him is funny.

    • tracking says:

      Yeah, if it weren’t for how terrifying the situation is with N Korea I would have LMAO.

    • holly hobby says:

      I think in the 70s when all financial reports were hard copies, it would have been easier for Manafort to destroy things. However, given that all bank records are electronic. Mueller can subpoena the records directly from the financial institutions. These people are cocky which mean I expect that some records may not have been removed. There’s alway one little mistake that will nail them in the end.

      • Erica_V says:

        It would be delicious if he attempted to destroy any evidence considering he pushed the whole “server bleaching” narrative against Hillary for months.

    • LA Elle says:

      This. I thought this was hilarious and mentioned it to my Mom. Her reaction was: “Was it put up by a bunch of military wing nuts?” She feels like the chicken sends the message that Trump is a chicken for not engaging in military action.

      Ever since she said that, I find the Trump chicken less funny and more a dangerous tease, like waving a red flag at a bull.

      • Esmom says:

        I hear you, the red flag/bull is a good analogy. While the artist’s message is valid, I think the timing of the installation is a little unfortunate.

  9. Rapunzel says:

    It’s like chicken little warning us the sky is falling.

    Mueller and his predawn, NO KNOCK (!!!) warrants are the only thing keeping me going.

    • homeslice says:

      YES! They kicked in the door!

    • holly hobby says:

      Congressman Ted Lieu has been using twitter to comment on this and he pointed out that they usually do the surprise gotcha thing when there is probable cause that the suspect did it and they are afraid the suspect would have tried to destroy or hide things.

      That means they are onto Manafort. They are also looking at his SIL. There is speculation that Mueller and crew and applying pressure on Manafort in hopes that he will turn and talk.

  10. MissAmanda says:

    I think the chicken is childish, and the animal itself kind of says ‘trump, are you a chicken or are you going to start another war for America?’….at least that’s how I feel trump would see it. I dont think he’d see it as ‘afraid to release his tax returns or stand up to putin’…come on now.

    i’m all for art and making a statement, but this one seems unnecessary…

  11. adastraperaspera says:

    Well, I have to hand it to the Trumpkins. They really pushed Russia out of the news cycle with the NK escalation. I do not believe for a minute that his bluster was impromptu. It stinks. What must Mueller be ready to expose that is so bad they will risk nuclear war? Or, is this just a fake spat that Putin Is engineering? We all know he owns Trump and also funds Kim Jong Un.

  12. Bellagio DuPont says:

    I think Kim is significantly crazier than the Donald, actually. I mean, this is someone who’s organiser the killing of several members of his own family….at different points on time, so it’s a consistent malady. A stone cold killer.

    Trumps craziness is more an expression of his stupidity, incompetence and recklessness. I can imagine KimJU actually committing murder with his own hands…..I feel like trump would probably pay someone to do it.

    I actually think Mitch McConnell is WAY more dangerous than trump because he knows the disastrous consequences of his policies but just doesn’t give two f*cks about them. In fact, he wears his indifference to suffering like a well tailored suit.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I think Tangerine is worse than Kim. Kim is a dictator, so he can follow through on his threats without impunity. If Tange had that he would go on a slaughtering rampage and I am dead serious. He is a psychopath barely contained in a cantaloupe body. He would arrest and imprison just because he could. He hangs out with Don King who murdered two people including stomping someone to death. Some of his best pals are mafia and Russian oligarchs both known to kill their enemies. He is a rapist, and he creeps on his own daughter. Kim is bad but I doubt that Tangerine would be better if all things were equal.

  13. PunkyMomma says:

    Re Trump v McConnell: let them eat their young and old.

    The chicken is funny, too bad Cheeto wasn’t there – Cheeto loves his KFC – he might have had the Secret Service drag that inflatable into the Rose Garden.

    I paraphrase here, but when asked, President Obama said his greatest worry as POTUS was North Korea with full nuclear capabilities. IIRC, he said it was the worry that kept him up late at night. What has been happening these past few days is nothing short of terrifying — it’s like the beginning of a really bad joke:

    Two lunatics with nuclear weapons walk into a bar . . . .

  14. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    So to cope with the nonsense that has been going on I have started to treat all of the news that has been coming out and piecing it together like a large and bizarre puzzle. Or like this is a scary version of the episode of the Golden Girls where they went on the murder mystery retreat where Blanche’s boss ends up dead.

    This latest event makes the last week of July make more sense.

    July 25: Manafort testifies behind closed doors.

    July 26: His home is raided at bum fuck in the morning.
    Same day transgender ban and then he goes after Racist Elf and McCabe. Racist Elf for recusing himself and not going after leakers. McCabe for ordering or signing off on the raid. Everyone should know by now that Dump only goes on Twitter rages to cover up some new development in Mueller’s case against him and his administration. Him going after Big Kim is no accident. I wonder if the indictment rumors are true. If true, who is it for? Is it more than one? Could it be for Damien, Ivanka, Manafort, The Mercers, Ugly Son number one? I don’t believe it is Dump or Drunk, too easy.

    Why was the raid ordered? Was it because Manafort was not cooperating during his testimony?

    They would need a warrant for a raid. To get a warrant you have to show evidence of probable cause to go into someone’s home and search it. If they didn’t meet the standards for probable cause, no warrant, no raid. Whatever they used to get that warrant from a Federal judge must have been serious enough to get them as much leeway as they did.

    I spend a little too much time at the grocery store. If you pay any attention to those tabloids you will see stories Manafort doing salacious things. It is basically a smear campaign against Manafort. Dump is using his toadies at those rags to go after Manafort like they went after Obama and Hillary. Those stories would not be there if Dump was not threatened. So, maybe Manafort and Flynn rolled on Dump, Damien, and everyone else in the administration to save himself.

    • magnoliarose says:

      He is stupid. Why poke at people who know his salacious secrets? They are going to sing and keep singing to save their own hides. Flynn has already turned.

      • Aiobhan Targaryen says:

        “Flynn has already turned.”

        You may be right. That is probably why a story about Flynn’s home being raided has not leaked yet.

        “He is stupid. Why poke at people who know his salacious secrets?”

        Narcissist don’t think like normal people. They genuinely believe that they are above everyone else just for existing. He has gotten away with so much for so long because the system has been rigged against his victims that he thinks this is just another con job that he is going to weasel his way out of. Hopefully, this is the one that takes him down.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Good point. I have to stop trying to use rational thought.

    • Matador says:

      If Manafort was already cooperating, they wouldn’t have had cause for a raid.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Manafort was likely cooperating but holding back. The Feds found out, feared evidence destruction (if not already), so rushed to get docs, etc.

    • Rapunzel says:

      And the warrant needed probable cause of a crime being committed. Stricter than simply cause to search.

      Plus they had a specific place– which they searched PRE DAWN (!) with NO KNOCK (!!) and apparently woke Manafort from his sleep.

      This was serious. Manafort is done and Trump’s using the Enquirer to threaten him into keeping his mouth shut.

      Calling it: Manafort was on the phone with DT during the June 9th meeting.

      • homeslice says:

        Manafort may have done some bad personal shit and they will use it to turn him…

        GO Mueller!!!!!!!!!!!

    • why? says:

      Keep in mind that Jared also testified twice that week. He spoke to the Senate not under oath on July 24 and then to the HIC on July 25 under oath and with Devin Nunes present. What we all should be asking is what did Jared say during his hearings. Did he throw Manafort under the bus?

    While I am always up for a practical joke I am also afraid that Wacko Donnie misses the point and takes this as an offense to his ego and to proves us that he is not a chicken but a warrior and he releases all the arsenal on N. Korea

  17. Beth says:

    Love it! Has he tweeted about it yet or is he too busy golfing, throwing another Republican under the bus, or scaring the world shitless by starting a nuclear war

  18. Scal says:

    “McConnell had been given the time to massage his caucus” just sounds dirty. Gross.

    And McConnell is totally trying to blame his failure on Trump. You had 7 years bro, and HE was the one trying to rush it through as soon as Trump got elected. The GOP totally dropped the ball on that. Now that being said, Trump didn’t help matters either.

  19. Lizzie says:

    people think congress is underpeforming b/c YOU ARE MITCH. i’m as tired of him as i am trump. he’s been obstructing legislative progress for a decade because he is a racist, bigoted asshole high on his own power. he doesn’t give a shit about a single person in this country other than himself. they botched healthcare because they don’t want people to have it. it is as simple as that. they bitched for 7 years that ACA was bad for the country and when it was their turn at the plate they whiffed…had nothing. they should all be embarassed because it nakedly exposed that the healthcare debate had nothing to do with anything other than hating obama and repealling it is singularly about tarnishing his legacy.

    • Bellagio DuPont says:

      @ Lizzie….

      You are so right, it’s sad. These people will let millions die, rather than leave any evidence of Obamas achievements standing.

      I don’t understand why there are not more Americans out in the streets FORCING republicans to keep/ work on Obamacare.

      • Lynnie says:

        It’s the same reason why half the country routinely sits out on elections, and why a good chunk now can’t be bothered to give more than a cursory glance at the news now. This country is a reactionary one, but only after the fact. As long as the status quo is fine for them personally they won’t come out.

  20. Bellagio DuPont says:

    By the way, given the new specific threats from North Korea targeting Guam, I’m going to go ahead and say that if this sh*t really goes down, I’m going to put the blame SQUARELY on all Trump voters.

    Not on Trump, but on his voters, because they knew they were voting for a lunatic and did it anyway. They will have blood on their hands.

    • holly hobby says:

      I do think it’s curious that the moron in NK basically sent an “invitation” about the Guam bombing. Seriously, he if was going to do that he’ll secretly do it without any hints (like the Japanese and Pearl Harbor). This is a pissing contest and these 2 bozos are holding the world hostage.

  21. Franny says:

    Probably not the best time to call Trump a chicken when he’s having it out with even crazier North Korea. I do love the chicken though – all angry with billowing hair. How funny.

  22. Amelie says:

    I saw Chicken Trump in April when I visited my friend in DC right before the Tax March. There’s a picture of it on my Instagram (without me in it). Didn’t realize people hadn’t yet realized this was a thing but I was delighted when I saw it!

  23. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    It needs a companion installment– a poop emoji with a sphincter mouth and same hair/brows, et cetera.

    • Sophia's Side eye says:

      I’ve seen that exact thing used as an avatar by people on twitter. A poop emoji with the bouffant hair. Lol

  24. I wish he did a dog or pig instead. The chicken could easily fall under “too chicken to deal with NK” since that’s in the news lately.

    • bcgirl says:

      He didn’t “do” this! It’s total BS on the artist’s part.
      He didn’t make it, didn’t conceive it, just got a hold of one of the chickens someone in China was making a year ago.
      These were made in China shortly after Trump’s election, and there were several of them. It obviously has a cultural meaning there which I would love to know.
      But he can go on taking bows, for setting it up I guess.

      • lightpurple says:

        In interviews, he has explained where the chicken is from. The original significance is that it is the year of the Rooster in the Chinese zodiac.

  25. Mermaid says:

    Is there anyone else that thinks Dump and Putin hatched this plan with North Korea to distract from Russia investigation during their little hookup at the G-20? Doesn’t Russia sell weapons to North Korea? I could look at this chicken all day. A thing of great beauty it is.

  26. WhatwasThat? says:

    Well from an outsider point of view that chicken is far to cute to be Trump…
    As much as I like the connection..this makes him look cuter and cuddlier than he is!
    And it is an insult to chickens who have more concentration skills that this man
    In fact I hate it when we call people beasts or other names as derogatory as humans are 100 times worst than any other creature that ever roamed the earth..and I include T.Rex in that!!
    I much preferred that naked statue that had a big gut and was truly unpleasant that was around about the time of the election as this man is that and more..
    He and Bannon are loving the chaos they send to the world and make money on the sly whilst this is happening..
    I hope his base wake up to the reality before it’s too late!!

  27. BlueSky says:

    The GOP never had any intention of repealing the ACA. If they did they would have spent the last 7 years coming up with an alternative. They were just using that tired talking point to get reelected.

  28. Bunbun says:

    I have a small problem with this balloon.

    Hear me out.

    The color and design looks like a logo for a chicken place, making me want fried chicken, which is a food annointed by angels. Trump should never be associated with a food of happiness.

    Trump usually makes me LOSE my appetite, not encourage it.

  29. why? says:

    I’m not buying that The King of Lies and Fake News went off script with his fire and fury comment. Jared wrote that “fire and fury” speech, he even tried to pattern it off of what Truman said in 1945. Jared saw the negative impact that the fire and fury comment was receiving and as usual, he threw his father-in-law under the bus. Remember this is coming from “sources/leakers”. Two of the biggest leakers in the WH are Jared and Ivanka.

    • why? says:

      This WH is so dysfunctional. The King of Lies and Fake News is the president, yet it’s Jared(he was sitting at the table while The King of Lies and Fake News delivered his fire and fury speech and once again the press overlook it), Bannon and his followers, and Putin making the decisions for our country. These are all adults, but they act like the WH is a highschool with the way they form these cliques and then use twitter and the press to attack the members of the other clique. Now you have Gorka verbally attacking Tillerson, and after Tillerson so faithfully declared that we can sleep well at night knowing that The King of Lies and Fake News is on twitter bullying NK. As for Mitch M, there is no sympathy for him. He knew what kind of person The King of Lies and Fake News was and he still took measures to protect him. Now The King of Lies and Fake News repays him by verbally attacking him on twitter.

      I also wonder how Mueller was able to keep this raid so quiet, even after it happened. You would have thought that even after it happened, some one would have said something. Instead we had the puppet pretending to be president on twitter causing more problems.

  30. jwoolman says:

    Anybody who believes Trump was talking off script with the Fire and Fury stuff – please contact me about a nice bridge for sale at a bargain price. He doesn’t have that kind of vocabulary. Those were not his words, someone wrote it for him.

    I’ve seen that big orange-haired chicken before, must have been when they first showed up in China. Reminds me of the giant chicken who is Peter Griffin’s nemesis in Family Guy. In the game Family Guy:The Quest for Stuff, the idea is apparently that a big fight between the two is what totally destroyed Quahog (the object of the game is supposedly to rebuild it).

  31. phlyfiremama says:

    The chicken is the greatest thing ever. HAHAHAHA!!!
    To everybody worried about the N Korea situation: don’t. The powers that be love their money too much to ever let anything like that actually happen, and war on that kind of scale is not profitable enough. CHINA will stomp N Korea before we ever have to, because you can darn sure bet that they don’t want the American military machine complex turned their direction. They like having control over their part of the world, thankyouverymuch, and if we start having to intervene there than that means we have a valid EXCUSE to wreak havoc in that part of the world. So stop worrying, this is all just saber rattling and trash talking.

  32. why? says:

    Is there not one adult in the WH who can just tell the King of Lies and Fake News to shut up and then put Jared in timeout so that he can’t keep pulling The King of Lies and Fake News puppet strings when it comes to NK, Comey, Sessions, and Mueller? The King of Lies and Fake News criticizes Obama and Clinton for dealing with North Korea when he has done absolutely nothing. Sitting on twitter and giving interviews threatening NK with “fire and fury” isn’t solving the problem. If the tough talk was working, NK would have settled down months ago. Instead NK laughs at The King of Lies and Fake News and then goes on to make even more threats. With The King of Lies and Fake News daring him to attack Guam, The King of Lies and Fake News is putting many people’s lives in danger. It won’t effect him because he and his family have a bunker to hide in. Where is Kelly? I thought he was going to bring discipline to WH, but instead the WH has become even more chaotic under his watch.

    We have the most incompetent and dumb president in the history of the world. He has absolutely no idea what he is doing. He just says words, but it’s obvious he has no clue what they mean. Would it hurt him to read and research before he goes on twitter and instagram to talk about things that will impact millions of people? He wants to blame Obama for his failures.

  33. TotallyBiased says:

    Just some background info on NK’s Guam threats: they have always ramped up the verbiage whenever there are military exercises in the area (Google Foal Eagle), especially joint exercises.
    The joint military exercise held Monday saw B1-Bs (our HUGE bombers) flying out of Guam to over the Korean peninsula, joining forces from Japan and South Korea–these are scheduled far in advance, and North Korea knows they’re coming.
    The massive annual joint exercise between the US and SK is also coming up in a couple of weeks.
    NK ALWAYS threatens to rain down destruction if the exercises are held, including back under the previous crazy Dear Leader.
    The media reports this more some years than others, and I am convinced Drumpf’s noise was designed to ensure we would be paying far more attention to NK worries than the ongoing investigation.
    Not saying we are all perfectly safe from NK, just trying to share some perspective.
