A giant inflatable chicken designed to look like President Donald Trump set sail Sunday in the San Francisco Bay near Alcatraz prison.

According to ABC7 News, the chicken is part of a campaign organizers joke is called “The Big Coop.”

“After the week the world has had, we all want to see Trump in jail. Yet we know the wait is long, too long. In the meantime, how can we let out our frustration about everything that seems so ruined and wrong?” the GoFundMe page said.

The Trump chicken has a perfectly coiffed, golden hair and is draped in horizontal stripes with the prison number 45 on it.

“We at Trump Chicken are civic-minded,” the page continues. “We want to give you a chance to speak your piece to the Chicken President when we sail our 33-foot bird in his Prisoner 45 shirt slowly down the Embarcadero and further south this Sunday in a prison transport boat.”

The page urged onlookers to shout out anything they want to Trump Chicken as he sails past them.

“You can mock and squawk and swear like you’ve never sworn before in a proud expression of your First Amendment right. Bring your friends. Make some signs and banners. Wear costumes. Dance. Everyone remember we’re still free,” the page said.
