Democrats Celebrated Flag Day By Tweeting Out Non-American Flag

Flag Day is a special day for people around the country to celebrate the Star-Spangled Banner — except, apparently, for the Democratic Party of America.

In a picture sent out from the official Twitter account of the Democrats on Saturday, a young Hispanic boy appears to be holding some kind of flag or banner that has the colors of Old Glory, but clearly isn’t Old Glory.

The image is likely seen as a political statement in light of the controversy surrounding the recent arrival of thousands of unaccompanied children coming across the Mexican border into the United States from Central America.

The wrong flag choice didn’t go well with other Twitter users though:



No clarification has been issued by the DNC so far as to exactly what flag the child is holding in the image.
