This is more of an amusing story than something to truly be upset about, but everyone who had flag duty in elementary school knows you’re not supposed to let the flag touch the ground, right? You learn this rule when you’re 8 years old…
This could be another statement they’re trying to make, but if that is that is the case….as usual…it’s waaaaaay too clever for these nitwits to portray effectively.
Dailymail.co.uk – A group of five avowedly liberal celebrities photographed on the cover of Variety while holding a large American flag may technically have violated federal code because they allowed the Stars and Stripes to touch the floor.
The cover of the latest ‘inaugural’ edition of Variety shows Hamilton actor Brandon Victor Dixon, filmmaker Michael Moore, actor Lena Dunham, talk show host Chelsea Handler, and commentator Van Jones standing behind an American flag. The flag is being held up along its edges by Moore, who is standing next to Dixon second from left, and Jones on the far right.
The cover story bears the headline ‘Now What?’
‘On the eve of Trump’s inauguration, Hollywood and the media raise their voices,’ the cover story’s sub-headline reads.

Dixon (left) is the Broadway actor who famously read a statement to Vice President-elect Mike Pence on November 19 after a performance of Hamilton. Moore (right) is a filmmaker whose movies paint an unflattering image of America’s gun culture, foreign policy, and capitalism
The Variety cover is nonetheless riling up conservatives who have a long history of loathing the individuals depicted in the photo.
Dixon is the Broadway actor who famously read a statement written by Hamilton show creator Lin-Manuel Miranda to Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who was in the theater to catch a show on November 18.
Dunham (above) stirred controversy in the past for saying that she wished she had an abortion.
Last month, she apologized for saying on her podcast that she wished she had aborted a fetus.
Two years ago, Dunham denounced a right-wing news website, which published an article accusing her of sexually abusing her little sister Grace when they were children.
The website, Truth Revolt, referenced an excerpt from the Girls star and creator’s recently released book of non-fiction essays in which she talked about looking at her sister’s vagina when Dunham was 7 and Grace was just a year old.
‘I am one of millions of women terrified about the implications of the coming administration on women’s access to reproductive health care,’ Dunham writes in a guest column for Variety.
Just days after Trump was elected, Handler tearfully declared on her Netflix talk show that she would move to Spain, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In the latest issue of Variety, Handler slams Trump as a ‘toddler.’
Jones was a left-wing radical in his youth. In recent years, he has authored books on creating a green economy.
Before his regular appearances as a commentator on CNN, Jones was an advisor to President Barack Obama.
Jones slams Trump in the latest issue of Variety, calling the president-elect ‘a pathological liar with a Twitter addiction.’
