President Trump Hugs American Flag After Speech, Liberals Triggered

President Donald Trump hugged an American flag following a speech he gave marking the 75th anniversary of the National Federation of Independent Businesses at their conference in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday.

CBS’ Mark Knoller reported without comment, “Pres ends speech to @NFIB Conference and hugs flag.”

Former Hillary Clinton spokesman Jesse Ferguson was triggered, “Donald Trump hates everything America stands for and doesn’t believe in American values. When he touches the flag, it desecrates it.”

ABC’s Cecelia Vega snarked, “And then the president hugged a flag. No really. The End.”
