truly represents America. What a majestic symbol.
Y'all know it’s just reacting like any bird of prey would and isn’t some manifestation of any political party’s will because it’s a bird?
That eagle was actually well-trained.
It attacked Trump not because “it’s a bird”. It attacked Trump because Trump couldn’t keep his arm level and made for an insecure platform. You have to keep your arm holding the bird very still or else they instinctively think “the branch is falling” and they try to fly off of it.
Which is why you hold large birds like this:
Elbow tucked in close to the body to support the weight.
Look in the first gif: the eagle was fine until Trump’s arm jerked downward because he couldn’t support the weight in that position. He pulled away and his arm started flailing in the second gif, which is when the bird started to peck at him.
Then when Trump made a move similar to that of trying to grab a gauntlet (3rd gif), the bird stopped him because he showed the bird he was bad at actually supporting it.
Trump didn’t know what to do, bungled it, and the bird was brooking none of his shit.
Because even a TRAINED BIRD is still a bird and will react like a bird does. Because it’s a bird. And animals react as animals to do, even trained animals to improper handling.
I’m saying that the bird was entirely fine with people holding it, grabbing it, and was trained to be around people.
Unless the person has actively done something wrong to tell the bird that they can’t be trusted.
Which is exactly what happened.
It’s a literal gifset of Trump trying and failing almost immediately to live up to birdAmerican standards.
So he doesn’t live up to American standards because he doesn’t know how to properly handle a large bird. Is what ya sayin to me. Because the bird behaves like a bird and he isn’t exactly versed in birds. Okay.
I wanna die.
Sam Eagle doesn’t trust Trump’s foreign policy.
AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU
This post is all over the place because yes it’s a bird, but No it didn’t just randomly attack him simply because it’s a bird. Yes it probably attacked because it was being improperly held, but no that is not some secret sign of Trump’s unworthiness as president. It’s a sign of Trump not being a professional bird handler.
