Leave it to the left to pretend like they really care about about the flag.

It is their shiny object of the day. Relieves the pressure to formulate winning strategies.


yet the sitting president makes a bigger deal about peaceful protests and not showing respect for the flag... but fails to abide by a standard of half mast for those who served the country, and more so in the armed forces....

You're overdosing on left-wing false rhetoric. None of that is true.

I'm not sure why the asshole deserved any half staff time in the first place. "We The People paid the deceased bastard for decades to play grab ass with his cronies in DC, he's dead so we should be in mourning over his passing" is what's expected here? Hell no! We should fly the flag higher to observe one less worthless parasite latched onto it.


He did more for the USA than your sorry arse ever will.

I'll die nameless because I've not spent my life being an attention whoring opportunist who's authority is on sale to the highest bidder ala Mr McCain.

I paid the tab alongside the other actual good tax payers in this country. We paid his salary and we paid for his mistakes, so if you're conditioned to believe he did good for this nation you should ask yourself who is really creditable, the ones picking up the tab or the asshat that's so generous with other peoples' earnings.

you are lots and lots of talk, and all of it pointless. Here, show me how wrong I am by stating the procedure of how this should have gone down. Flag etiquette is a real thing and exists for all to see. Even you.

The backlash against trumps arrogance has caused the flag to be lowered once again.

At least some in the WH have character and honor. It's a shame trump isn't one of them. Petulant little egoist.
I'll bet he lies and says it wasn't his idea and blames a staff member, his SOP.

Star. Those who served will always outpace those who stayed at home because of "bone spurs." The cowards and the ones who served is self evident. John served. Donny played the rich kid game and got a doctor to write him a note.

You might not like John's politics, but when it came down to it, he manned up. Donny was a pussy. He still is.

He died Saturday.

I was under the guise that for a member of Congress that expires, the flag is to be lowered the day of death and the following day.

Where is the arrogance?

The White House lowered the flag back down to half mast, but it could have been the wrong thing to do.

What is it about cult45 that always feels the need to express "whataboutism" when it has nothing to do with the topic being discussed except derailing the thread.

but....but....what about clinton and but....but....what about Obama, or your Queen, Who cares, it isn't going to sway anyone's opinion.

American Legion National Commander made a special request that the flag be half-staffed through McCain's interment, and a VFW spokesman also requested it. President Trump honored their wishes and broke with standard protocol.

LOL, yes, I served. I wasn't captured or tortured,so sorry about that. I did 6 years in the USAF. I didn't like McCain, but I haven't spoke badly of his death and I won't.

But I can read, and I understand how some things work. Like the flag. There are rules for it, and as my link showed, Trump followed the rules, and has the ultimate authority to do as he wishes.

As of now, he has lowered the flag to appease the loud mouths, and he will be chastised for that, just as he was for not lowering it more than the regulations allowed. Some of us are smart enough to realize that there really isn't anything he could do to please folks like you, so as long as he keeps the tantrum material low key like this, we may avert the larger tantrums that are sure to come. I personally can't wait for the leftovers to find a less douche like leader so I can spend countless hours trashing them over the most inane #. I think I'll spend the first year just rehashing all the things Trump was accused of, and just put the communists name there instead.

As always, have a super day.

You're absolutely correct, I don't give a # that the guy has died, I'm just drawing parallels with pretending to give a # when the Queen dies, you know, for snowflakes who didn't know him but still cry lol
