Donald Trump apparently thought the American flag has blue stripes

At least he got one of the red stripes right?

In Donald Trump’s eyes, anyone who kneels during the National Anthem is a “son of a bitch.” But the 45th U.S. president could apparently use another grade school lesson or two on the American flag.

On Thursday, Trump joined First Lady Melania Trump and Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar for a photo opp at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Ohio. During the visit, President Trump spent some time sitting with the kids and coloring. That’s when it happened.

The president added a blue stripe to the American flag.

Azar highlighted the error, presumably unintentionally, when he tweeted out photos from the event. As you can plainly see, the president’s partially finished flag-coloring project sports an unmistakable patch of blue, right where it shouldn’t be.

(It’s the third of these three images, the one on the bottom right.)

While our country’s flag is indeed red, white, and blue, the 13 stripes — which represent the 13 British colonies that declared their independence and became the USA’s first states in 1776 — are only red and white. The blue appears behind the flag’s 50 stars (one for each state!), in the rectangle situated in its top-left corner.

Before any Trump supporters come out of the woodwork to cry foul and suggest that maybe this sheet of paper didn’t belong to the president… there’s another photo that shows him actually adding the blue himself.

On the one hand, anything goes, color-wise, when you’re sitting and coloring with a bunch of little kids. Want to make an orange, green, and purple flag? Go wild. Who cares? It’s happy fun times with kids.

Then again, this is the president who’s been railing against predominantly black athletes in the National Football League for daring to protest police brutality and racial inequality in America during the pre-game performance of the National Anthem. Surely a man who respects the flag and everything it stands for so much should know where the colors go on said flag.

Sarcasm aside, it should be clear to all observers by now: Trump pledges allegiance only to himself. He has no conception of American values, or what actually makes America great (hint: immigration is a big part of it). 

It isn’t even a little bit surprising to learn that the man might not know where the blue goes on the American flag.
