FRANKFORT (April 23, 2017) — DNC Chair Tom Perez was following Bernie Sanders out of a coffee shop in Frankfort, KY this weekend, when, to the delight of onlookers and Internet users everywhere, an unidentified bird flew overhead and defecated directly on him.

According to reports, the pair were in town for a round table discussion with local residents.
Sanders, who recently topped polls as the most popular Senator in America, had already exited and was not hit by the poo.
Many recall the moment a bird landed on his podium during a rally in Portland as one of the most memorable moments of the 2016 campaign.

News of the flying fecal dump caused immediate speculation about the feathered culprit’s identify.
Others expressed satisfaction with Mother Nature’s small yet symbolic gesture.

The universe has spoken …. a bird visits Bernie's podium and another poops on Perez.

According to the Urban Wildlife Guide, “The white pasty part of bird droppings is uric acid. The dark part, sometimes brightly colored from the bird’s diet, is feces. Birds simultaneously evacuate uric acid and feces from an opening just under the tail that is called the cloaca or vent.”
While Sanders continues to rally progressives into action across the nation, establishment Democrats continue to push a failed narrative about their embarrassing electoral failure.
