We’ve long suspected that Bernie Sanders might be too good to be true, but at a speech in Portland, Oregon this week, he finally completed his transformation into a damn Disney princess.
At a rally on Friday, a bird alighted on Sanders’ podium, to the delight of the candidate, and the cheering crowd.
“This little bird doesn’t know it,” he said, before pausing to share the spotlight with the tiny avian creature. “I think there may be some symbolism here,” he went on. “I know it doesn’t look like it, but that bird is really a dove, asking us for world peace. No more wars!”
“Ya man a bird,” he didn’t say next, but probably would have if he were Hillary trying to court the young voter.
As many have pointed out, Portland is of course the birthplace of the catchphrase “Put a bird on it” from the show Portlandia. The Oregonian captured video of the delightful interaction between man and beast. (No, I’m not talking about the latest Trump vs Cruz debate.)
