The driver who filmed this should be arrested and charged with distracted driving.

If the driver had a passenger with him no problem.

The SEALS are independent thinkers, I can see where liberals would have a problem with this.

The SEALs should use a MAGA flag instead. Liberals will still fret and froth, but it will be much harder for them to do anything about it.

typical leftist heuxs, seals and americas tip of the spear have been laying their lives down valiantly for decades along with the massive sacrifices (that will never be understood by the general sheep public) they and their families endure, then a president that will actually support them on the battlefield comes around makes sense to fly the trump flag, pc leftists feelings be damned...
