A white substance fell on President Joe Biden’s shoulder during a speech on Tuesday, leading many to believe a bird had defecated on his shoulder.
The incident occurred as Biden gave a speech in Menlo, Iowa.
Even the birds know. Apparently a bird just shit on Biden in Iowa. That bird speaks for anyone who’s filled their tank or gone shopping in the last 18 months.

Trump Jr.’s take
“Even the birds know. Apparently a bird just shit on Biden in Iowa. That bird speaks for anyone who’s filled their tank or gone shopping in the last 18 months,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted.
Others, like Nick Adams, wrote, “Even the birds know he’s a crappy president! ”

Was it really?
Bloomberg White House correspondent Justin Sink argued that it wasn’t bird poop that landed on Biden’s shoulder, but “bits of corn flying around from the corn silo.”

The event was indoors, but took place inside a barn-like structure that may have allowed a bird to do its thing and create a “poopy” speech.
Regardless of the true source of the white substance, the story quickly led to some online fun, with many identifying with the bird’s reaction to Biden’s words. The president can’t seem to even get a break from the area’s wildlife as he seeks to make his current struggles in office sound good.
