Bernie Sanders recently held a rally in Portland and even the local wildlife wanted to attend. In mid-speech a bird landed on his podium and the crowd erupted. Honestly, this kind of thing can only happen in Portland. The video of the incident is quickly going viral and it just reminds us again how much of a grandfather Bernie Sanders actually is.
The video reminded me a bit of my all-time favorite Bernie pic that showed up on Twitter a few months ago.

The internet loved the bird and in no time there were some great tweets popping up about the moment. Because let’s face it, Twitter was built for this.

Its endearing to know that Bernie Sanders is a Disney Princess

I really, really hope that there’s soon a children’s book entitled Bernie Sanders & The Little Bird, because this kind of thing just warms our hearts.
