President Donald Trump Vs Bald Eagle [VIDEO]
Trump broke the Leftist narrative once again by proving his good-natured sense of humor.
When Time Magazine said they wanted to put Trump on the cover with a Bald Eagle, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. However, photographer Martin Schoeller was hoping to capture a new side of Trump.
Schoeller had photographed Trump before. He knew the challenges he was facing.
According to Time:
“He’s very difficult to photograph,” says Schoeller. “If you ask him to look up a little bit, he says no or he just doesn’t do it. He literally has one angle. If I ask him to smile, he puts on a big grin and then he goes back to his Zoolander ‘blue steel’ look. And the ‘blue steel’ stays for as ever long as it takes to get the photograph.”
This time, however, Schoeller wanted to try something different. “When I get an assignment, I do my research and try to figure out what kind of picture would make the most sense given who the person is and what they’ve been up to,” he says. With Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again”, Schoeller thought about adding a bald eagle – the USA’s national emblem – to the photo. “Mr. Trump liked that idea,” says the photographer. “I thought he might be open to it considering he’s a man who loves attention. He likes controversy, and he likes to be in the spotlight.”
I can imagine Trump’s hair taking quite a bit of time in a normal photo shoot. Now imagine one big angry bird in Trump’s hair.
Below is the video of the shoot. For those who say that Donald Trump is an egomaniac, well this video speaks otherwise.
An egomaniac would not have allowed this video to be shown.
President Trump, on the other hand, was a trooper!
For the record, the 27-year-old Eagle’s name is Uncle Sam. He lives in Texas with his handler, Jonathan Woods.
Wood, the bald eagle’s owner, felt the shoot went well – and he would know. For the past 20 years, after Uncle Sam was hit by a car in 1994 and was deemed “non-releasable” to the wild, Wood has been crisscrossing the country with it. “I’ve done a lot of educational programs in schools with that bird,” he says. “He’s been in movies, television shows and commercials. Millions of people have seen him.”
For Wood, it made sense to pair Trump with Uncle Sam. “Donald Trump is an icon, and this bald eagle is an icon.”
After seeing Trump with Uncle Sam it’s clear: Trump does have a sense of humor after all.
Any guesses what Hillary Clinton would have done?
