Flagging Trump’s Russian Connections

On Friday, Donald Trump gave a speech at CPAC. But before Trump spoke someone wearing a suit passed out Red, White, and Blue flags with Trump’s name on them. People began waving them.

Except, the colors were not in that order, they were White, Blue, and Red. Apparently unbeknown to the attendees, that is the Russian flag. They were waving Russian flags for Trump. At Trump.

Conference staff were alerted and went around confiscating the flags.

And one reporter spotted someone wearing a “Make Russia Great Again” T-shirt.

This is especially significant now, given the new revelation that the White House sent a request to the FBI to publicly knock down media reports that Trump campaign staffers were in frequent contact with Russian government officials. The FBI refused. The White House is not allowed to intervene in FBI investigations.

UPDATE: The pranksters who pulled this off reveal themselves. Pretty funny.

    Funny prank. But I have to admit that I had no idea what the Russian flag looks like. I just assumed, as did my husband, that it still had a hammer and sickle on it. I guess we missed that change somewhere along the line. And again as I think about it, I’m not real sure what most countries have on their flags.

    According to Wikipedia, this has been the flag of Russia since 1696. You’re thinking of the flag of the USSR. Russia went back to using this flag in 1993.

    So this was a genuine false flag. The “trump” was printed golden; his favorite color for everything, including showers.
