Amidst all the chatter about who won last night’s debate, how biased the moderator was and even what drugs the candidates were on (yes, the highly credible — not — Democrat Howard Dean suggested Trump may have been on cocaine), one small but rather symbolic detail has been largely overlooked.
As the two candidates debated each other in their pursuit of the office of President of the United States, one candidate wore the flag that represents this greatest nation on earth. The other did not.

Of course, should this really surprise anyone, given that the Democrat National Convention — where they crowned Hillary the Democrat nominee — “forgot” to have American flags present, until they were shamed into putting some up the second day? (Though you could find a Palestinian flag flying inside the convention, and protestors carrying Communist flags outside.)
Or given the fact that Hillary Clinton proudly plans to carry on President Obama’s legacy of shaming America — a legacy that’s led to things like banning our American flag in schools for fear of “taunting Hispanics” living here in this country? No doubt Hillary and her campaign didn’t want to “trigger” their supporters with such a (gasp) patriotic display while running for the presidency of this land.
Perhaps it would have been appropriate for Hillary to instead wear the flags of all the nations by whom she’s bought and paid for — like Saudi Arabia and Yemen, for example.
While the presence or lack thereof of an American flag pin may seem like a minuscule detail, it may just speak volumes about the choice we have this November. One candidate wants to “make America great again,” while the other wants to continue its “fundamental transformation.”
This video of the American flag falling over as Hillary Clinton passes by just may be the perfect metaphor for what we have to fear in a Hillary Clinton presidency.
