Russian flags rained down in a confetti-style protest during Trump's rally
Trolling is mostly dumb, but sometimes it's an art. President Donald Trump held a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday and, as he was speaking, someone tossed a bunch of tiny Russian flags, confetti-style, in front of the cameras streaming his speech to news networks. SEE ALSO: Russian refugees read powerful testimonials of gay men who escaped Chechnya As far as protests go, it certainly earns points for creativity. The Trump campaign and administration officials have had a lot of unexplained contact with Russian officials, much of which is currently under investigation. A former campaign manager allegedly laundered money for a Ukrainian political party with ties to the Russian government. The FBI got a surveillance court order in the summer of 2016 to watch a Trump adviser because of an investigation into links between the Kremlin and the current president's campaign.
