Twitter can be cruel.
McNaughton has some pictures on his website about the Trump administration. A, with the title “Make America Safe,” trump standing in front of a white picket fence with an open lock with a key, and the American flag waving in the background.
Another, entitled “Respect the Flag” shows trump on a football field, hugging a torn flag, the seemingly referencing the President of the battle with the National Football League about the players knees during the national anthem.
