Twitter Trolls Donald Trump For Colouring The American Flag Incorrectly

A picture appears to show Donald Trump colouring a stripe in with a blue marker.

The flag of the United States of America - also known as the Old Glory - is perhaps one of the most easily-recognisable flags in the world. And yet it seems that the President of the United States has a tough time remembering that the flag has only red and white stripes and 50 white stars inside a rectangle of blue - for the POTUS was photographed adding a blue stripe to the American flag. On Thursday, US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited children at a hospital in Ohio. During the visit, as they sat on a table with the young children and coloured in flags, a photograph appeared to show Mr Trump adding a blue stripe to the flag.

The photograph was inadvertently shared by Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar in a tweet on August 24.

Another photograph shows him colouring in the stripe with a blue marker:

The fact that the POTUS apparently forgot what the American flag looks like left many on Twitter outraged. In fact, reactions to the now-viral incident have even been curated into their own Twitter Moment today.

See some of the reactions below:

However, a small number also defended Mr Trump:

Last year, the US President had invited ridicule for looking cheerful and swaying back and forth while singing the American national anthem on the somber occasion of Memorial Day.
