President Donald Trump got an eyeful of red, white and blue after two liberal activists handed out nearly 1,000 Russian flags to unwitting attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Ryan Clayton, 36, and Jason Charters, 22 — both members of Americans Take Action — handed out the Russian Federation flags inside and outside of CPAC, which they emblazoned with the word “TRUMP” in gold letters.
Clayton and Charters said the prank went better than expected because most of the wavers did not recognize the flag’s country of origin, forcing CPAC staffers to confiscate the free “souvenirs.”
“The amount of people who didn’t know the flag was astonishing,” said Charters, who added that most attendees were excited to be given the flags.
This is genius on several levels. First, it shows just how dumb these people are. It’s a Russian flag with Trump on it. But they gleefully waived it. Second, these dudes better start ramping up production of this flag because I suspect there could be some demand for sales.
