Atwood-style handmaids draped in red with white hoods and a damning message on abortion rights; a group of yellow chickens flagging the dangers of chlorinated chicken through a choreographed dance routine; and even a Trump impersonator whose resemblance was so uncanny that we were surprised he hadn't been milkshaked yet. (We later found out the nearest McDonald's purposely wasn't selling them to prevent trouble). The infamous baby blimp was even joined by a 16ft talking Trump robot, which sat Tweeting on a golden toilet.
