Two bald eagles were trapped inside a Florida storm drain Thursday in a situation that many are calling the perfect post-election metaphor.
Seriously folks, you can’t make this stuff up. The two eagles were stuck inside a drainage ditch in Orlando for hours. One was able to escape on its own, but the other needed to be rescued by specialists. Around 6:20 p.m., officials reached into the drain and pulled the eagle out.
Immediately, tweets began pouring in to point out the irony of this sewer scene:
Wait…a Bald Eagle just flew into a sewer drain & they’re trying to figure out how to save it?! Can’t be real…too on the head #Election

I just watched a Facebook Live video of emergency crews trying to rescue a bald eagle stuck in a sewer drain. If that’s not a metaphor
