Trump raises burning White House flag to full staff, media appeased


The White House flag, lowered to half staff on Saturday evening in honor of the late Sen. John McCain, was raised to full staff Monday morning.

That was when ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, and CBS News’ Mark Knoller, noticed the flag was burning.

Karl tweeted, “President Trump has raised a burning flag. I’m proud of my country for the first time.”

Knoller was more pithy. “Burning flag back at full staff atop WH. Fuck yeah,” he tweeted.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This story is developing.

Update: Facing a national outpouring of scorn, the White House relented Monday afternoon and once again lowered the scorched remains of the White House flag in honor of the late Sen. John McCain.
