The Origin Story of the Giant Trump Chicken That Descended on Alcatraz, Alcatraz Island, San Francisco‬‬ 02.17.18 | USA – San Francisco
A group of six protesters raised $10,000 to troll a right-wing rally last August. That rally was called off, they promised to find a new day for it. Saturday, that day came.
At about noon in San Francisco on Saturday, a team of six protesters pushed off of Fisherman’s Wharf in a boat with a 33-foot inflatable chicken that resembled President Donald Trump fastened to it. The chicken was outfitted in giant prison fatigues—and as they headed toward Alcatraz, a banner on the side of the boat that read “Transporting Prisoner 00045” was unfurled. Politics – CHICKEN OF THE SEA
They circled Alcatraz twice at five miles per hour, then coasted along the banks of the city to show off the inflatable bird to the weekend crowds on San Francisco’s Embarcadero. The stunt was the brainchild of 62-year-old Morton and her crew of five organizers, all of whom met while planning a protest last April aimed at pressuring President Trump to release his tax returns. The Tax Marches drew crowds of thousands in cities across the country and hosted speakers including Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Ron Wyden and Rep. Maxine Waters.
“It’s the Cock of The Rock,” organizer Danelle Morton told The Daily Beast.
And thanks in large part to Morton, the marches had their own symbol: oversized inflatable Donald Trump chickens made in China.
Since the Tax Marches, the chickens—which come in a variety of sizes—have popped up at opportune moments in several U.S. cities. Tax March organizer Taran Brar made The New York Times when he blew up his 33 footer near the White House in August. Protesters organizing in front of Rep. Darrell Issa’s office in Vista, California, also propped up a chicken in October. Still another was spotted near the yacht of billionaire Breitbart News investor Robert Mercer in September. And now one has floated in the shadow of Alcatraz.
