US Navy SEALs Under Political Heat for Flying Trump Flag

A special warfare group of U.S. Navy SEALs are under political pressure after they flew a "Trump flag" on the lead vehicle of a convoy headed through Kentucky.

Lt. Jacqui Maxwell of the Naval Special Warfare Group 2 in Virginia Beach, Va., said an immediate investigation is underway.  “Yes, it was inappropriate,” she said. “DOD and Navy regulations prescribe flags and pennants that may be displayed as well as the manner of display. The flag shown in the video was unauthorized."

A video was captured on Sunday on I-65 as a line of Humvees followed behind the flag.  

Anti-Trump groups have deemed the action “a fascist tactic” that “is not acceptable. RESIST!!!”
