Donald Trump Gets Attacked By Bald Eagle Named Uncle Sam

Eagles love America, just like Donald Trump, so it only makes sense that the two were brought together for a photoshoot on August 18th. Time Magazine was doing a cover-story on Trump, but newly released footage from the shoot reveals that Uncle Sam, the 27 year old bald eagle, is no docile bird.

When Trump reached for something next to Uncle Sam, the eagle lunged, making Trump recoil in shock. “What you will do for a cover – this bird is seriously dangerous but beautiful,” said Trump after the incident. Meanwhile, the Internet has been busy, creating gifs and memes of the hilarious incident.
