CPAC Attendees and Their Little Flags
"Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” written on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday.

The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russia’s official flag.

Reporter Peter Hamby notes that CPAC staffers quickly realized that its attendees were waving Russian flags, and moved to confiscate them."

Lol, I wonder how many of them even recognized that as the Russian flag.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Apparently most of the flag wavers were Trump supporters who just thought they were waving rally flags and had no idea what they actually were. Laugh out load

Well it wasn't red with a yellow sickle so how could they have possibly known the connection to Russia...

Unfortunately in the minds of Trump supporters shit like this legitimizes the current regime's complaints about paid protesters.

That's the former Soviet Union's flag, but probably still more recognizable as Russian than their actual flag.

Trump's first non-lie in office will be that he is "totally committed to the red, white, and blue"!

But it was actually a prank by a couple of protesters, who distributed them to the crowd.

Which obviously was too dense to recognize what they were waving. Color me unsurprised.

RE: CPAC Attendees and Their Little Flags
I heard about this and giggled.

Like I always say the average American isn't the brightest bulb.

I'm actually quite happy that if someone tried to hand me a flag like that I'd refuse it. Wouldn't matter who's name is on it.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
