Hmmm... Were they “white middle-aged Republican Activist” birds??

Naaahh — that would have been the headline, so I’m guessing they were common blackbirds...

(Is that RACIST??)

If it’d been a Republican’s plane the headlines would read the plane intentionally hit the birds.

The article says it’s not clear what kind of birds. I think they need to do an investigation. Probably they were bald eagles, spotted owls, or some endangered species.

Biden should be ashamed of himself!

OK, wait a minute. Birds fly what— 20 mph? Air Force Two lands at what speed— roughly 150 mph?

The plane hit the birds.
