Trump Chicken on the Chico State Campus Free-Speech Area

On Wednesday the 17th at 10 o’clock in the morning a giant air balloon lifted  more then 30 feet into the air, with a gleaming gold hairstyle.  The Trump chicken rose into the sky.  The Trump Chicken  balloon was on campus to call attention to a student organized voter registration drive.  The student Democratic organization on campus gave out  several hundred free hot dogs to get students to register to vote. More than 77 students registered to vote.   Hundreds came out to view the giant chicken and have a free hot dog or two.  Several local candidates were there to encourage the students to register and vote and talk about their political agendas.

    I hope my son was able to see this. He didn’t mention it, which is odd for my history/political science nerd:)
