Flag On The Play

Russia

That’s the flag of Russia. According to Rawstory there were a lot of them at CPAC when SCROTUS poured out his usual collection of disconnected thoughts.

Ali Rogin of ABC News has a picture of a larger version with Trump stamped on it in gold letters.

I don’t think ‘conservatives’ [or whatever the people who attend CPAC call themselves] approve of being buddies with Vlad.

For your store of Trivia: The flag of Russia is the flag of the Netherlands with the red stripe moved to the bottom:

Netherlands

When Peter the Great had his first group of ships built in the Netherlands in the late 1600s he was told he needed a flag, so he used existing flags of the Netherlands and had them modified. The naval ensign is white with a blue saltire cross [X-shaped] [Cross of St Andrew], so the tricolor flags were initially for merchant ships.

That story made my day. How stupid are these CPAC attendees, anyhow? Hint: Very. So very that they actually *bought* the idea that it was red white and blue because the American flag is red white and blue! SNRK!

Yeah, but TRUMP was in gold, just like all of SCROTUS’s signage, so they were deceived by evil liberal forces.
