If our future president didn’t like the nude, unflattering statue of him in New York City, then he probably won’t like another that was recently erected in China.
Or should we say, “Gina.”

Shoppers at a mall in Taiyuan will be greeted with a large, gold and white rooster outside of the building. There’s no mistaking it for someone other than President-elect Donald Trump.

At first, it appears as though China is making fun of Trump, but it actually represents Chinese astrology. While American astrology goes by calendar months and days, the Chinese calculate someone’s personality based on the year they were born.
2017 is the Year of the Rooster.
According to Cao Mingliang, the Deputy Director of Planning Department from N1 ArtWalk Mall, the goal is to bring in more business. He said:
“I think the rooster is very cute and funny, the hairstyle and eyebrows look very much like Donald Trump. I’m sure it will attract a lot of customers.”
While the statue is meant to be funny, there’s no denying that it’ll probably upset some members of the Trump Train. Especially since Trump himself doesn’t take too kindly to anyone making fun of him. For example, the cast of Saturday Night Live.
If you want to join in on the Trump bashing but are leery of international shipping fees, fear not. Amazon is full of Anti-Trump novelty items. For example, toilet paper. Great for when you wake up and see that our future president was at it again on Twitter.

After you’ve taken care of business with some Trump toilet paper, throw on a shirt that tells people how you really feel about fascism.

Or just state the obvious with an outfit that tells the world what everyone’s thinking: we really are in bed with Russia now.

Even though it’ll be the Year of the Rooster, Trump is actually a Dog. Born in 1946, the misogynist is more like man’s best friend.
His determination helped him build a massive empire, one that’s reportedly worth a few billion dollars. Of course we don’t know if he’s actually worth that much, since he has yet to release his taxes.
Dogs in Chinese astrology are known to be stubborn, a trait that Trump has displayed time and time again. For example, when he refused to pay agreed-upon amounts to several small business owners.
Astrology is up to interpretation, though.
