From Our “I Am Not Making This Up” File

Totally respectful, am I right?

President Trump and his supporters feign outrage when NFL players kneel for the National Anthem and yet this is what the White House posted on Twitter for Flag Day, a photo of the Sexual Harasser In Chief dry humping the American flag.

Totally respectful, right?

    As with just about anything that has to do with this crowd, whenever they criticize anybody else for just about anything, they are simply projecting…that flag and that pole should file a police report for sexual assault and be sanitized…

    @An Interested Party: “Burn me….”

    Flagging Pud Day…

    It’s not like he was wearing a tan suit or anything

  5. CSK says:

    Utterly vile…but par for the present course.

  6. Kathy says:

    Is anything the right reveres not a fetish of some kind?

    I wonder if Dennison shows his devotion to the flag by using it to stroke his little mushroom until it spews.

  7. Daryl and his brother Darryl says:

    I just want to know who he is going to send the $130K hush money to? Betsy Ross?

  8. CSK says:

    @Kathy: Oh, dear God, what a truly disgusting thought.

  9. SC_Birdflyte says:

    Thanks for almost making me hurl.

  10. Kylopod says:

    For some reason I was reminded of a line from the Harvey Danger song “Flagpole Sitta”: “When I feel a bit naughty, I run it up the flagpole and see who salutes, but no one ever does.”

  11. Matt says:

    @Kylopod: Aw dude I was going to quote that myself. I just heard the song last night on Siriusxm.

  12. Mike says:

    He’s done nothing but avoid serving that flag; just a prop for a two bit hustler. For some reason I picture him wearing a US flag speedo in the residence while watching Hanity.

    “Missed it by that much.”

  14. OzarkHillbilly says:

    Doug, you just don’t understand. Everybody want’s to fuck America, especially True American Patriots ™.

  15. mike shupp says:

    I’m sure he politely asked for permission before embracing the flag and it didn’t tell him “No.” So it’s a splendid example of how real American men should behave these days.

  16. OzarkHillbilly says:

    None of us will ever look at the American flag in the same way again.

    … wearing a US flag speedo in the residence …

    Eww! Now I’m going to have to go out tonight and find a convenience store that sells mental floss. Thanks a lot! 🙁 :-p
