Uncle Sam Really Doesn't Like Donald Trump

Eagle eyes miss nothing.

Before you shudder and say, "Oh, please not another Trump headline," take a minute and watch the video. It's hilarious. Apparently our national symbol of freedom didn't especially care for our current national symbol of fascism.

Bob Cesca:

This might be the greatest story of the week. During a photoshoot for TIME Magazine, GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump had some difficulties dealing with a 27-year-old bald eagle named, of course, Uncle Sam.


Seriously, is there anything more appropriately metaphorical than the quintessential symbol of the United States accosting Donald Trump and nearly de-wigging him? I don’t think so. Again, I would’ve liked to have seen at least a finger or an eyeball plucked out and, with “So long, sucker!” gusto, flown out the window and dropped into the East River.

I'm gonna go with the eagle on this one.
