This eagle stuck in a car grille is a slightly too on-the-nose metaphor for the 2016 election
A bald eagle in Clay County, Florida that got stuck in the grille of a car is reportedly okay, according to authorities.
Images of the bird are being compared to the state of America right now in the middle of a bizarre and often dispiriting election weekend.

I’m not a creative writing professor. But if I were I’d probably deem this, “A fine metaphor, but perhaps a little too heavy-handed.”

Really, in a deep sense, aren’t we all the bald eagle stuck in the car grille? And aren’t we all just as ready to peck somebody’s eyes out? pic.twitter.com/QWD6nOTwi0

Metaphor for U.S. election. (Donald Trump’s behind the wheel, btw.) https://t.co/jly1jxr5Uu

Dropping the metaphor for a moment and focusing on the eagle, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office shared details of the bird’s rescue on Facebook.
We are all the eagle.
