Trump managed to botch a photo-op with Ohio kids by coloring his American flag wrong

Published

on

Embattled President Donald Trump failed spectacularly at a simple photo-op with children in Ohio on Friday.

President Trump toured the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus with First Lady Melania Trump and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.

As part of the tour, “they took part in a time-honored tradition: sitting in tiny desks alongside adorable kids in hope that the guileless innocence on the little faces surrounding them will take some of the heat off of their craven politicking,” in the words of Esquire.

As part of the photo-op, Trump had the simple role of coloring between the lines with young children.

Zooming in on Trump’s art project, however, revealed that commander-in-chief had failed at the simply task of coloring in an American flag.

“The flag of the United States shall be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white,” as the flag code makes clear.

Unlike the flag of the Russian Federation, there are no blue stripes in the American flag.

Despite being unable to color an American flag with a group of children, Trump has made his supposed love for the U.S. flag and national anthem a centerpiece of his political outreach.

Hours after the bungled photo-op, Trump ripped CBS and ESPN over the NFL’s protest controversy while speaking at the Ohio Republican Party’s annual state dinner.

“What the hell is the NFL doing? Do they not have a clue? It’s hurt them badly,” said Trump, who has previously criticized the league for players who kneel in protest during the anthem. “They think they’re doing something smart by not broadcasting the national anthem?”

Trump attempted a mulligan by starting over with a blank sheet of paper.

The information released were documents related to the search warrant for the campaign finance violations that former Trump fixer Michael Cohen pled guilty to. They were supposed to be fully unredacted, however, dozens of pages and names remain redacted.

"The government has effectively concluded its investigation of (1) who, besides Michael Cohen, was involved in and may be criminally liable for the two campaign finance violations to which Cohen pled guilty [redacted]; and (2) whether certain individuals, [redacted], made false statements gave false testimony or otherwise obstructed justice in connection with this investigation [redacted]," the documents revealed.

Politico reports that the Palm Beach County GOP has disinvited Scaramucci from speaking at its annual fundraising event because he criticized Trump's tweets telling four Democratic women of color to "go back" to the countries they came from even though all four are American citizens.

You pathetic little piece of sh*t. You got your head so far up Trump’s ass, I could still take it off your shoulders. F**k you Gaetz. I’m coming after you, b*tch," the message said.
