My best guess, and I think it's accurate is........... "Why don't they just fold that flag?"
It seems like she just wanted them to hurry up and fold it. She didn't use any foul language. I think when she said "fold that flag", that many we're mistakenly seeing her say "effing flag".
So while it is still alarmingly unpatriotic for a first lady, it wasn't a direct use of foul language toward the US flag. Just good old fashioned impatience.

Maybe it's like a form of reverse psychology to manipulate the populace.
Since it was a close up shot, and it was on the MSM, maybe it was meant to be there? The media is so ultra-fake these days, I wouldn't be surprised it was all a set up.
I can hear them behind the scenes now, saying something like :
"Yeah Michelle, just say something rude about the flag, and since all the anti-government crowd hates you, they will automatically take the opposite position and go into a deep fit of patriotic rage and it will subconsciously activate their indoctrination programming and bring them back into the fold of pro-government ideology, slowly but surely."
Maybe, maybe not. But hey it seems reasonable to me with as screwed up everything is these days...

There is already a long thread on this.
most people have agreed that it looks more like she is saying "Love the way they fold that flag" or "Look at the way they fold the flag".
I see nothing be reverence on their faces.
