Not everyone's into wood-working, so they probably didn't notice this as well, but the wood they used is pretty freaking lousy.

The wide grain is just asking to split. On the front one you can see on the right where it already is trying to open up in the middle, at the base.

Speaking of the front one's base, the damn thing isn't even square at the bottom. It's warped!

You have a pitch where that pinch in the right-middle of the base has a V shadow in the grain. That means the V in the grain is actually causing the warp. Any woodworker worth his salt making something like this wouldn't have used that chonk of wood.

Not to mention all the dings and pits in the chamfer. This thing must have been bouncing around in a pile of other projects for a while.

That is unless the frame for the flags are 30+ years old. Then the warping is expected. Still though, I wouldn't have chosen that stock piece of wood for a Presidential Flag Case.

I'm surprised they didn't use MDF.

I knew when the Military Presidential Salute battery didn’t give him a 21 cannon salute, something was off. But they gave Trump one at Andrew’s…

The last known article that mentioned the football. There has been no follow up to this supposed "transfer" happening. Trump still has the football.

You can search Google for "nuclear football handoff" and all youll get is articles like this. Supposedly Trumps was just turned off. First time its ever been done this way instead of being passed on during the Inauguration.

This one single piece of information is enough to know Biden isnt President of anything important. The rest is just gravy.

Jeez, even I could have folded those flags with less wrinkles back in elementary school when I was on flag duty!

I missed this... this is a COMM for them... it's basically telling them that their end will be draped in one of these wrinkled flags... thought by that time they will have been disgraced and not worthy of being draped in tattered remains... so by giving them these winkled flags, it's basically saying... ya know...

Satanic as fuck. The pentagrams are pointing down and it's in the shape of the pyramid, how obvious can they be?

This link is for the presentation of flags at Trump’s inauguration. They are being held by members of the military who present them and put them in a plexiglass holder. Sorry about YouTube, PBS, Pelosi, Schumer and anything else abominable about it. I’m not super good at evaluating flags but one looks a little wrinkled and the other looks smooth to me. https://youtu.be/EWy1glAH9lY
