Trump-tydrenvlaghyser stort inmekaar tydens sy toespraak in Noord-Carolina

“President Donald Trump se saamtrek Sondag in Hickory, Noord-Carolina is beskadig deur winde wat 'n skêrhyser omverwerp het wat een van die alomteenwoordige reuse-vlae hou wat die gebeure aandui.. The giant flag was supported by two of the lifts. When one of the lifts fell, it crashed against the wall of the building just behind it and the flag ripped loose. Journalists on the scene captured the aftermath: Video from right after the scaffolding fell over. pic.twitter.com/6AynAqMVti— Olivia Nuzzi (@Olivianuzzi) November 1, 2020 At the president’s windy rally in North Carolina, one of two scissor lifts holding an American flag tipped over and hit the airport building. Officials put caution tape around it, removed the second and lowered a third that’s holding lights, though it’s still a little shaky. pic.twitter.com/gWsn6tEWgI— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) November 2, 2020 No one was injured. Workers rushed to lower the remaining lift and rescue the flag, which was whipped about by the winds. Commentators couldn’t help but wonder if the collapsing lift was a metaphor in the final days of the 2020 presidential campaign: A giant metaphor for a collapsing democracy. As Trump speaks in Hickory, NC the structure holding up the American flag collapsed behind the crowd and the press area. https://t.co/k6Fg6hCPIy— Nita Cosby (@5_2blue) November 2, 2020 Get this:Bald eagles circled overhead at Joe Biden’s rally.

These people are so stupid they have regressed to a time before sailing ships. https://t.co/jG3jOKkile— Jonathan Goodwin (@TheDaredevil) November 2, 2020 The Flag has spoken #NoMoreTrump https://t.co/oaucKvtoMf— Darlene (@RealJerseyGirl2) November 2, 2020
