Crow Goes Wild As Bird Lands On Sanders’s Podium In Portland
Bernie Sanders got a little help today from a feathered friend at a rally in Portland, Oregon on Friday. While giving his stump speech, a small bird landed on the stage and then hopped up on the podium, right by Senator Sanders.
“Now you see this little bird doesn’t know it–” he started to say, before the bird perched on his podium. After a few moments it flew away.
“I think there may be some symbolism here,” he said, adding, “I know it doesn’t look like it, but that bird is really a dove asking us for world peace. No more wars!”
Twitter went crazy, using the hashtag “#BirdieSanders.”

Also funny was that this took place in Portland, Oregon and the indie sketch show Portlandia made “put a bird on it” one of their odd catchphrases and running gags.
