So this happened at CPAC early on Friday morning. Someone began passing out little flags with “Trump” printed on them as the President began his speech.
Trouble was, they were Russian flags.
Journalists, like Peter Hamby, formerly of CNN and now with Snapchat, were quick to point this out.

What Hamby failed to report was the source of those flags. Hint: no Republicans or Trump supporters were involved.
