SEE IT: Protester throws Russian flags at Trump at the Capitol
President Trump got a dose of red, white and blue — just not the old Stars and Stripes.
A protester threw a barrage of Russian flags at the President as he strutted down the halls of the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday.
Trump was flashing the thumbs up to a gaggle of reporters and snapping photographers when the tri-colored tiny flags went flying.
“Trump is treason,” said the protester, who identified himself as Ryan Clayton of the liberal-leaning Americans Take Action group.
The President, flanked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, seemed unfazed as he kept strolling down the hall. Clayton reportedly snuck his way into the press pool.
“This President conspired with agents of the Russian government to steal an election,” Clayton shouted as he was restrained. “We should be talking about treason in Congress, not about tax cuts.”
Trump’s proposed tax reforms are among the reasons he made Tuesday’s visit to Capitol Hill, along with his botched efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.
This isn’t the first time Clayton has sent Russian flags flying during a Trump appearance.
The activist and another Americans Take Action member passed out 1,000 flags designed to look like the Russian one, with “TRUMP” spelled in gold lettering, at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February.
Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence last year's election in the President's favor.
