We’re incredibly sorry we were unable to float the Trump Chicken on the bay so that his Cockiness could stare down the hate groups that planned to muster on Crissy Field Saturday afternoon. We invite you to pause for a moment to acknowledge the awesome power of the chicken. When he was inflated on the White House ellipse August 9, the threats to drop a nuclear bomb on North Korea subsided. All we in San Francisco had to do was threaten to sail him past Crissy Field in an epic photo bomb, and the hateful group disbanded their rally. It was your support that did that but also, all hail the peacemaking power of the big bird.
We also had some technical difficulties on Friday morning. The boat owner who had agreed to float our chicken, and even helped us Thursday with a test inflation the yacht club parking lot, backed out late that morning. That left us scrambling to find another boat.
Three members of our team spent the entire day driving around looking at boats, on the phone and the internet trying to convince someone to do it on short notice. As we were doing this, the rally canceled and we abandoned ship.
So what are we going to do with your money?
We’re not pocketing it, or flying to Hawaii, or using it to pay off student debt.
We’re saving it for the next time the chicken is needed. Sad to say, we know there will be a next time, and it is likely to be very soon. We will consider all suggestions from the community and pledge to keep our chicken ever at the ready for the moment to appear. We know how to do this now. We’ve learned lessons about what’s possible and what’s not and we're poised to act.
Trump Chicken. Expect us.
The Trump Chicken will troll the alt-right trolls Saturday, but only if you help us right now to raise the $8,000 for a large boat, crew, and other chicken related expenses. Organizers of the alt-right hoped to leave their rally with thousands of pictures of themselves and our iconic San Francisco bridge in the background, so we're taking matters into our own hands and bringing our chicken to the sea to photobomb these glamour shots. They're going to hate it.
Our Trump chicken was last seen on the ellipse behind the White House during the crisis about whether or not to drop a nuclear bomb on North Korea. When he appeared there, that conflict magically calmed down, but it was replaced by the horror of Charlottesville. We’re bringing the Trump Chicken’s magic touch so that it can help soothe tensions.
Anyway, it’s worth the try. Help us show the world that these evil forces don’t scare us by donating to the Chicken on the Bay.
You know you want it. Donate early and often. Let's do this.
