WATCH: They actually removed an American Flag before last night’s Dem debate

Eagle eyed social media users caught the DNC red handed.

In what is arguably an unusual move, the people running the DNC debate last night saw an American flag on the stage and then chose to remove it.

It’s unclear if it was placed there by accident and who made the call to take it away but the moment is captured on video on the live feed.

@TheDemocrats⁩ just realized that somebody screwed up and put an American flag on tonight’s debate stage. Calls were made. Flunkies were scrambled. Problem solved!!!


One Twitter user replied “Democrats hate America, but certainly want Americans tax dollars.”

Another wrote “Thank God they “got rid” of that symbol of freedom, sacrifice and liberty. Just in time. It might have gotten so covered in scum from the candidates it may have to be retired. Too bad none of them noticed it was gone, probably because they requested it gone”

One Twitter user offered a possible logistical explanation:

You can see that the audience has just finished the pledge, and as they are sitting down, stagehands removed the flag so cameras could view the stage from all angles during the broadcast.

Even if it was purely logistics, it seems unfortunate they could not keep the American flag UP for the debate itself.
