Supporters Flock to Buy 'Birdie Sanders' Merchandise
On Friday, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders had a Disney princess moment at a rally in Oregon. During his speech, a bird flew around him and eventually landed on the podium.
"I know it doesn't look like it, but that bird is really a dove asking us for world peace," responded Sanders.
#BirdieSanders soon began trending on Twitter and other social media sites, and, subsequently has inspired late-night hosts' monologues and Internet memes everywhere.
