 I have each students pretend they got hurt and need
 a band-aid. Children love band-aids. I ask the first one
 where they are hurt. If he says his finger, I put the band-
 aid on his finger. Then I ask the second one where they
 are hurt. No matter what that child says, I put the band-
 aid on their finger exactly like the first child. I keep doing
 that through the whole class. No matter where they say
 their pretend injury is, Ido the same thing I did with the
 first one.
 After they all have band-aids in the same spot, I ask
 if that actually helped any of them other than the first
 child. I say, "Well, I helped all of you the same! You
 all have one band-aid!" And they'll try to get me to
 understand that they were hurt somewhere else. I act
 like l'm just now understanding it. Then I explain, "There
 might be moments this year where some of you get
 different things because you need them differently, just
 like you needed a band-aid in a different spot."
 If at any time any of my students ask why one student
 has a different assignment, or gets taken out of the
 class for a subject, or gets another teacher to come
 in and help them throughout the year, I remind my
 students of the band-aids they got at the start of the

<p>That eagle was actually well-trained.</p>
<p>It attacked Trump not because “it’s a bird”.  It attacked Trump because Trump couldn’t keep his arm level and made for an insecure platform.  You have to keep your arm holding the bird very still or else they instinctively think “the branch is falling” and they try to fly off of it.</p>
<p>Which is why you hold large birds like this:</p>
<figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="450" data-orig-width="337"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/39721332512a60c09c918cc326ccb470/tumblr_inline_pbd9wzjuvL1tb6pwe_540.png" data-orig-height="450" data-orig-width="337"/></figure><figure data-orig-height="194" data-orig-width="259"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/61e7a23eadf0693ab26b05c8664e2691/tumblr_inline_pbd9xfLykh1tb6pwe_540.png" data-orig-height="194" data-orig-width="259"/></figure><p>Elbow tucked in close to the body to support the weight.</p>
<p>Look in the first gif: the eagle was fine until Trump’s arm jerked downward because he couldn’t support the weight in that position.  He pulled away and his arm started flailing in the second gif, which is when the bird started to peck at him.</p>
<p>Then when Trump made a move similar to that of trying to grab a gauntlet (3rd gif), the bird stopped him because he showed the bird he was bad at actually supporting it.</p>
<p><br/></p>
<p>Trump didn’t know what to do, bungled it, and the bird was brooking none of his shit.</p>
</blockquote>

<p>Because even a TRAINED BIRD is still a bird and will react like a bird does. Because it’s a bird. And animals react as animals to do, even trained animals to improper handling. </p>
<p>Bird. </p>
</blockquote>
<p>I’m saying that the bird was entirely fine with people holding it, grabbing it, and was trained to be around people.</p>
<p><i>Unless</i> the person has actively done something wrong to tell the bird that they can’t be trusted.</p>
<p>Which is exactly what happened.</p>
<p><br/></p>
<p>It’s a literal gifset of Trump trying and failing almost immediately to live up to <strike>bird</strike>American standards.</p>
</blockquote>

<p>So he doesn’t live up to American standards because he doesn’t know how to properly handle a large bird. Is what ya sayin to me. Because the bird behaves like a bird and he isn’t exactly versed in birds. Okay. </p>
</blockquote>

<p>I wanna die.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>Sam Eagle doesn’t trust Trump’s foreign policy.</p><p>AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU</p></blockquote>

<p>This post is all over the place because yes it’s a bird, but No it didn’t just randomly attack him simply because it’s a bird. Yes it probably attacked because it was being improperly held, but no that is not some secret sign of Trump’s unworthiness as president. It’s a sign of Trump not being a professional bird handler.</p>

 I didn't cry when Trump won. I have
 never once lost hope or my will to fight
 over the last 18 months.
 But, Kennedy stepping down... I have
 been hysterically crying for an hour.

 If he gets another court pick, democracy is
 effectively over. He will be able to pardon
 himself. He can suspend elections. He will stay
 in power forever. Birth control will be illegal. I
 don't want to imagine how bad it will get.
