The new US commie flag isn’t complete yet...
Has the Stestakgate scandal taken over the CERTIGATE scandal/cover up ?
Are you sure that was a formal press conference? Doesn't look like enough reporters.
But even then, there could be a flag to the President's right. You'll notice in the photos of Bush I and Reagan, the single flag is behind and to the right, just as flag etiquette says it should be.
Having one of their citizens bypass our constitution and become president is an enormous achievement. Hats off to them.
Perhaps he would rather see a “Black Nationalist” Flag flying
How long does it take to bring in the U.S. Flag on a stand
and place it next to the podium? Seconds . . .
To be fair, that press briefing was in the East Room of the White House, which is traditionally not decorated with any American flags.
There are more important things to worry about in regards to zero than this.
Bush didn't seem to have a problem finding room.

Depends on whether you have one or not, or if you do, how deeply it's buried in storage.
I believe I said “traditionally.” The way you read it, it must have meant “it never has, nor will it ever occur.” I do not like Obama, but this is a BS argument made by the mainstream media to take attention away from real issues like the top kill failure.
I can GIS plenty of pictures of a pres briefing without flags present. But what does that matter? Honestly, why is this an issue? So he did not lay down a wreath for our fallen brothers, but he is far from the first. G.W, G.H.W., and Regan have skipped out on it too.
Let us not make a mountain of a mole hill. If we concentrate our efforts on such small issues, our power as a movement will be too diversified to have a real impact.
You have it all wrong, we aren’t making a mountain out of a molehill, we are chipping at the feet of a media colossus.
We don’t need no socialist agenda....
We don’t need no mind control.....
Taken in the WH breifing room....doesn’t count.
If you note in the picture above from a prior post
Reagan has the Flag to his right...
In this picture it crops off the left side
(his right where the flag is)
Obama on the other hand Has NO Flag on either side in his picture.
You said flags
