Activists Pull Off Russian Flag Prank At CPAC


During President Trump’s speech at CPAC Friday morning, a large number of people in the crowd were seen proudly waving brightly colored flags with the name “Trump” in big bold letters.

Most didn’t realize they’d just been pranked – it was a Russian flag, to mock Trump’s alleged “connections” with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

CPAC workers quickly began confiscating the flags, and warned people if they waved the flags, they would be removed from the venue.

It was later confirmed that about 1,000 flags were handed out by two progressive activists from D.C., Jason Charter, 22, and Ryan Clayton, who were affiliated with the group “Americans Take Action.”

The two had purchased tickets to the event, then started handing out the flags as President Trump took the stage.

Charter said, “I asked people if they wanted a Trump flag and they took it. Many Trump supporters were proudly waving their Russian Trump flag.”

CPAC reportedly kicked them out for the stunt.
