Bird Brain: What was going through the Pirate Parrot’s mind during a recent GOP fundraiser

When the Pittsburgh Pirates traded Gerrit Cole, fans were mad. When they traded Andrew McCutchen, fans were irate. But when Pirates General Manager Frank Coonelly dragged the Pirate Parrot to a GOP event that featured U.S. Congressional candidate Rick Saccone and long-time Trump stooge Kellyanne Conway, fans lost every piece of their damned minds.

Coonelly claims he wasn’t endorsing Saccone at the Spirit of Lincoln Dinner, a fundraiser held by the Allegheny County Republican Committee of Allegheny County, but that he was there to talk baseball. Critics are skeptical, however. But through the powers of mind-reading and body-language interpretation, we were able to hear what was going through our favorite mascot’s head.
