PHOTO: Donald Trump Jr. Posts Picture Shaming Democratic Representatives not Wearing Flag Pins at State of the Union, Wasn’t Wearing One Himself

President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald “Don” Jr. seems to despise Democrats almost as much as his father.

This was especially evident after Tuesday night’s State of the Union Address, when Trump Jr. took to Twitter to criticize female Democratic Congresswomen for not wearing flag pins.

The American flag lapel pin came into national popularity with Richard Nixon as a statement against anti-Vietnam war protestors. Since then, it’s warped into a flawed test for candidates and lawmakers to prove their patriotism. During the 2008 election, eventual President Barack Obama ended up on the receiving end of Republican outrage for not wearing the item. “I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest,” he defended. “Instead I’m going to try to tell the American people what I believe… and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism.” Bill O’Reilly made a similar statement after 9/11: “I’m just a regular guy. Watch me and you’ll know what I think without wearing a pin.”

Yet Trump Jr. seems to think flag pins are the deciding factor of dedication to this country, which is interesting, because he wasn’t wearing one himself, nor were any Trump family members.

People didn’t hesitate to point this out.

Nor is this new.

They still weren’t done eviscerating Trump Jr.
