i wonder why at the Hill, the author wrote "Inflatable chicken resembling Trump placed near White House" And in the article repeated the same mistake.

It's an inflated chicken.

An inflatable chicken would be one before it was inflated.

Hmm. I would suggest that both are correct. A car is still drivable when you're driving it, e.g. :)

You completely missed the subtextual metaphor. :lol: Allow me to strip it out and redirect emphasis so the metaphor becomes more visible.

Trump's an inflated chicken.

If you want one of your own ... :D

You can buy your very own giant inflatable Trump-like chicken on eBay
A $500 giant inflatable Trump-like chicken is available on eBay.
The Trump-esque chicken balloon went viral after various Twitter users posted pictures of the inflatable glaring down at the White House on Wednesday.
The inflatable has also been used as a mascot for "Tax Marches" demanding Trump's tax returns to be released.

The Chinese manufacturers claim these were made to commemorate the Chinese "Year of the Rooster" and any resemblance to Trump is purely coincidental. :D

People have been wondering that about Trump for eons. Stephanie Miller's mooks used to make fun of it long before he was a political candidate. :D

I know the answer to what is on the top of his head. This is Trump and his first wife:

Their divorce was bitter, in the settlement Trump got half of her hair. :)

Professor is correct. The chickens were made in China, and there may be enough left for you to have one too. The yellow-orange thing on his head is a rooster's comb, though it's hard to believe the designer didn't have drumpf in mind. It also looks like the top of the poop emoji, which of course would be very appropriate for a shithead.
