During a rally in Portland, Bernie Sanders was met by a tiny bird. When he started talking about the bird in terms of metaphor, he came right up to the podium to greet him. If you're wondering if this became a meme, of course it did, with it's own hashtag #birdiesanders.
A guy in Texas came home after running some errands to find a huge flock of birds had infiltrated his home. He captured the chaos in two separate videos (part 1 is above and part 2 is embedded below).
“There are birds everywhere,” he says. “This is fucked up.”
There were upwards of 25 of the animals fluttering around, which he assumes were swallows.
He described the bizarre incident in a post on Reddit:
I opened the front door and heard what sounded like wings… I kind of flipped sh*t. Long story short We got them all out safely. There was a lot of cleanup involved, but all of the birds are fine. We think they got in through the chimney since last summer we thought we could hear birds chirping.
So it’s probably not an evil curse or omen, but he if he comes home to find plague of locusts in the next few days, it might be time to call a priest.
