Excerpt from Twitchy
By Brett T.
The cable TV cameras were set to go Wednesday night, each trained on a different individual and ready to cut in on cue when President Obama noted the diversity of Americans who all pledge allegiance under the same proud flag. (That same technique, by the way, backfired earlier when the Hillary Clinton campaign tweeted a photo of a crying Muslim woman who turned out to be a staunch Bernie Sanders supporter.)

"under the same flag"? Where? #DemsInPhilly— Dale Jackson (@TheDaleJackson) July 28, 2016
It’s a beautiful image, and one that might have come across a little better had the president been standing under that flag himself, just to clarify for the audience exactly which one he was talking about.
