Bernie Sanders had a great week last week, Stephen Colbert said on Monday's Late Show. The highlight was probably his three-state caucus sweep on Saturday, but a close second is the crowd-pleasing bit of magic that preceded it. "Yes, a bird landed on Bernie Sanders' podium," Colbert said, after showing a video clip of the adorable Birdie Sanders moment. "What are the odds that a bird would be attracted to an old man who looks like he has bread in his pockets?"
Colbert wasn't done dripping cold water on Sanders' avian prowess: "Of course, this isn't necessarily a sign that Bernie is the chosen one," he said. "It is spring, birds are everywhere — in fact, I've got a bird right here in the studio who's going to help me sing a happy song about spring." The bird had different ideas.
