Last Friday, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders held a rally in the state of Oregon. During the event, an unexpected guest joined the Vermont senator on stage: a bird

The tiny bird flew around Sanders. Then, it landed on the podium where Sanders was speaking.

Sanders and the bird, a house finch, stared at one another for several moments. Smiling, Sanders told the crowd he believed the bird’s presence was symbolic.

“I know it doesn‘t look like it, but that bird is really a dove asking us for world peace.”
