The current occupant of the White House actually tweeted this last night. He’s the president of all the people and now has the flag to prove it. This is one flag I won’t mind seeing burned.
It’s not as if it’s so original. From March of this year:
A group of veterans angered by an American flag bearing the image of President Barack Obama descended on the local Democratic party headquarters in central Florida and demanded it be taken down.
It was, but not before heated words were exchanged between the two sides, media reports say.
Obama’s face filled the blue-and-stars section of the flag, which was flying underneath the traditional American one on a flagpole at the Lake County Democratic Party headquarters.
“It’s a cult of personality to show his face, like Stalin or Mao,” John Masterjohn, a former Marine and retired schoolteacher from Leesburg, told the Orlando Sentinel. “It’s despicable. They don’t realize how sick they are.”
