Protesters trolled Trump with giant inflatable chicken.

Courtesy of The Hill: 

A large inflatable chicken meant to resemble President Trump was placed near the White House on Wednesday. 

The inflatable chicken, which features a golden coif of hair and hand gestures similar to Trump's, is modeled after a statue unveiled in December as the mascot for a Chinese mall. Since the statue's unveiling last year, smaller copies have appeared across the United States. 

The inflatable chicken that appeared Wednesday appears to have been put up near the Ellipse area by the White House that is open to the public. 

Trump of course is off visiting one of his golf courses so he did not see the fowl with whom he shares such a remarkable resemblance.

The chicken is based on a statue placed near a mall in China.

Which was recreated by an artist in Seattle, and now apparently ANYBODY can buy one.

I have no idea what Trump thinks about the inflatable homage, because as it turns out he was too busy desperately looking for a favorable poll online that he could retweet.
I imagine that you will be less than surprised to learn that Progress Polls is a fake poll created by a pro-Trump Twitter troll.

    Trump's Favorite Twitter Pollster Is a Renamed Pizzagate Conspiracy Peddler
    The president retweeted a Twitter pollster Thursday. Last month, that pollster was the far-right meme account Truth Bombers, pushing conspiracies about murder and child sex rings.

    Donald Trump retweeted the results of an unscientific Twitter poll on Thursday that suggested 61 percent of voters believe Trump is a better president than Barack Obama.

    The Twitter account, now called @ProgressPolls, had an entirely different identity just two months ago. The account called was @Truth_Bombers until July 26th, when its new owners deleted almost 4,000 old tweets, some of which promoted the Pizzagate conspiracy theory that falsely claimed Hillary Clinton’s campaign ran a secret child sex ring, and also tweeted claims that Obama is Muslim.

    On August 4, @ProgressPolls, which has 125,000 followers, tweeted the poll: "Who is a better President of the United States? #ObamaDay." It went viral, securing almost 30,000 votes, and just short of 13,000 retweets. One of those retweets was @realDonaldTrump.

    In an interview with The Daily Beast, the proprietors of @ProgressPolls admitted that the account had recently changed management, but denied the account had been purchased. According to Twitter, the @Truth_Bombers account was originally created in March 2016.

      Seems to me July 26 had Doughboy saying the date, and the FBI raid. Who said there are no such things as a coincidence? Hey Sarah.
      Wonder if it's them pushing the conspiracy and child sex ring. Sarah would know.

    Norwegian: Trump or trumpa translates as “a smelly substance picked up in the street that one cannot easily scrape off the bottom of a shoe.” Usage: “Your boots are covered in dog trumpa, please leave them outside!”

    Catalan: Trumpello means “the color yellow” and, alternately, “urine, but only in the context of a golden shower.”

    In England, “Trump” Means Fart

    Russian: The playful word trumpovski means “puppet” or “pawn” in Russian. Example: “With an incriminating videotape in his possession, the brilliant puppet master was able to fully control the empty-headed trumpovski.”

    Italian: The simple form, trumpano, means “windbag, blowhard, or blabbermouth.” Usage: “If I have to listen to that trumpano for four more years, I’m definitely moving to Canada.”

    Hebrew: In Israel and other places where Hebrew is spoken, a trumpowitz is “an emotionally-stunted individual obsessed with his mother or, less kindly, a mama’s boy.” Example: “That kind of whiny tantrum is unusual for a man, but common with a trumpowitz.”

    They way to keep Trump revealing himself as the buffoon he is is to continue to mock him unmercifully. The swaggering Toddler in Chief reacts like the infant he is every time. He isn't capable of 'pivoting' into adulthood. He's will perennially be in his terrible twos.

      Anon at 1:18 pm. There are no "up sides" to a nuclear Armageddon. If you survived the blasts, the question remains if you would survive the aftermath. Modern nuclear weapons are thousands of times worse than the atomic bombs used in Japan. And they were certainly devastating. Read John Hersey's book "Hiroshima" and multiply it many thousand fold. No human being should talk lightly about a nuclear war.

    ProgressPolls, the account retweeted by Trump, has created similar polls seemingly designed to further Republican Party talking points such as: is the gender pay gap real, and was Seth Rich “murdered by the DNC / Clintons”?

    Curiously, the ProgressPolls Twitter account currently says it has 3,900 tweets, but only a handful are currently available for viewing, an anomaly which normally occurs after an account scrubs a large number of previous tweets. The account also displays a creation date of March 2016, but the oldest tweet on their profile is from late last month. A quick search of previous @ProgressPolls tweets reveals that the account recently changed its handle from @Truth_Bombers, a conservative Twitter account posting pro-Trump memes and news not usually associated with credible polling institutions. Archived media posts form the Twitter account reflect the recent change in content.

    This is how easy it would be for Trump to start a nuclear war
    Our nuclear launch protocols are designed for a swift, unquestioning response to a presidential order.

      But the mechanisms designed to hold those weapons and the computers that control them havent been updated in decades. We're lucky that one hasn't gone off on its own.

    Well, he seems nice.

    "Donald Trump’s pick to head the U.S. Department of Agriculture Sam Clovis peddled conspiracy theories about Barack Obama, called black leaders “race traders,” and accused former Attorney General Eric Holder of being a “racist black,” CNN’s KFile reports."

    I think that in any news conference from now on, reporters should just ask him questions like, "Tell us, Mr President, just how hot is Ivanka's body?" and "Do you think Ivanka or Melania should pose for Playboy?".

    OT?"For Trump, Steinle’s death—coming as it did two weeks after his notorious Mexican rapists speech—was the most convenient of tragedies. On July 10, 2015, Trump was seventh in the Republican field, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average. Ten days later he’d overtaken Jeb Bush for the No. 1 spot among GOP contenders."Within a week, he was telling an uncorroborated version of the story, one that vindicated his entire platform. “This man, or this animal, that shot that wonderful, that beautiful woman in San Francisco, this guy was pushed back by Mexico,”Mexico pushes back people across the border that are criminals, that are drug dealers.”
    "bragging about the good it had done for HIS campaign:"
    "For Trump, the death of Kate Steinle was a branding opportunity"If “beautiful Kate in San Francisco”—a young, innocent white woman—could be murdered in cold blood by a Mexican “animal,” so could any young, innocent white woman in any town in the United States."

    "The story of how Trump has used Kate Steinle is the story of his political career."< Good read!>

    Trump reverses course, declares the opioid crisis a national emergency
    http://midnightsunak.com/2017/08/10/trump-reverses-course-declares-opioid-crisis-national-emergency/

    “It’s a national emergency. We’re going to spend a lot of time, a lot of effort and a lot of money on the opioid crisis,” Trump told reporters at a news conference today. “It is a serious problem, the likes of which we’ve never had. You know, when I was growing up, they had the LSD, and they had certain generations of drugs. There’s never been anything like what’s happened to this country over the last four or five years.”
