PHILADELPHIA - Edgar Baker Phillips was hard to miss on the convention floor Tuesday night. He was the guy wearing a chicken head.

"We brought our chicken here with us to give Donald Trump a rude awakening," said Phillips, who is a U.S. Virgin Islands delegate for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Roosters crow at 4 a.m. back home, Phillips explained.

He made a prediction for November about GOP nominee Trump.

"When we crow for him at 4 o'clock in the morning, he'll know he just lost the election," Phillips said.

"We'll pull the tail and crow!" he added.
