27 year old bald eagle flown in from Texas to pose with Trump for Time cover photo

When Martin Schoeller scrolled through the 28 close-up portraits he had taken of Donald Trump, he was struck to see that they were all identical. “Every frame was the same,” Schoeller says. “Mr. Trump knows exactly how he looks, and he strikes one pose and doesn’t move.”

-----------

?quality=65&strip=color&w=746

“He’s very difficult to photograph,” says Schoeller. “If you ask him to look up a little bit, he says no or he just doesn’t do it. He literally has one angle. If I ask him to smile, he puts on a big grin and then he goes back to his Zoolander ‘blue steel’ look. And the ‘blue steel’ stays for as ever long as it takes to get the photograph.”

This time, however, Schoeller wanted to try something different. “When I get an assignment, I do my research and try to figure out what kind of picture would make the most sense given who the person is and what they’ve been up to,” he says. And with Trump running for president with the slogan “Make America Great Again”, Schoeller thought about adding a bald eagle – the U.S.’s national emblem – to the photo. “Mr. Trump liked that idea,” says the photographer. “I thought he might be open to it considering he’s a man who loves attention. He likes controversy, and he likes to be in the spotlight.”

The 27-year-old American bald eagle, named Uncle Sam, was flown in from Texas by master falconer and wildlife rehabilitator Jonathan Wood – and brought to the 25th floor of the Trump Tower in mid-town Manhattan. “It’s hard to plan what animals will do,” says Schoeller. “There’s not much training you can do with a wild bird and Mr. Trump was a little hesitant holding the bird, so it was very tricky to get the bird to [stay] on his hand.”

Wood, the bald eagle’s owner, felt the shoot went well – and he would know. For the past 20 years, after Uncle Sam was hit by a car in 1994 and was deemed “non-releasable” to the wild, Wood has been crisscrossing the country with it. “I’ve done a lot of educational programs in schools with that bird,” he says. “He’s been in movies, television shows and commercials. Millions of people have seen him.”

The gauntlets worn by anyone handling eagles tend to be a lot stouter than the ones worn in falconry. An eagle's talons can go right through the lighter gloves AND the hand inside! (I once talked to a fellow who rehabs raptors. He found out the hard way!)

Has Mr. Trump ever had a personal pet? have never seen a picture of him and any pet animal, though I do think his fellow Rs will start to smear his big game killing son closer to the primary.

Put a picture of Trump next to Moe of The Three Stooges and you have a carbon copy. Watch a few short clips as Moe gives his brash, know-it-all simplistic response to everything. Watch as he tries to make things happen and then blames others.

54. Oh yeah. Fearless Leader is afraid of a big bird. Although I've held one. They're heavy.

The main thing you have to remember is not to lower your arm because birds always walk upward. If it wasn't bad for the eagle I'd have loved or him to have scared the crap out of Donald and had it captured on film.

67. He is very difficult to photograph

 

will put it in my notes... you never know.

And yes, there are a few local pols that are very difficult to get good shots off.

As to the eagle, from a photography perspective, that is actually brilliant... people who are difficult will somewhat lower their guard when you introduce a new element.

76. It's time to stop viewing Trump as an interesting "Carnival Barker" and

start doing some real analysis of what he stands for and why he would be an extremely dangerous choice for President.

That analysis would clearly show how out of touch he is with the actual political situation in the U.S. and the World.

80. Oh, Christ on a cracker. I wish that eagle would've snatched that thing off of Trump's head &

used it to line his nest. Now THAT would've been a picture worth seeing. How disgusting. It's just one despicable sideshow after another with that gasbag.

84. What's with all that kitchy sports crap lining his window sill & floor? Ugh.

I guess it's true that you can wrap millions of dollars around a pile of dog crap and it's still just dog crap.

88. Yeah, that shitty hoard alone should disqualify him from the presidency...

 

...let alone his corrupt record, his horrible personality, his fourth grade mentality, his hair, and so forth.

98. The eagle is a distant cousin of Trump's hair

 

The latter being from the inbred side of the family, of course.
