You can buy the flag seen above on Ebay for $4.99.
The United States Flag Code provision 176 (g): “The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
And this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this.
We saw Obama flags waving right before inauguration day, and Obama said nothing.
At some point, wouldn’t you expect the President of the United States step up and say that this gross breech of flag etiquette in his honor should stop? He may not be able to stop entrepreneurs from making a buck off of his image, but he can certainly discourage the practice. He loves to give speeches, doesn’t he? And hasn’t he been dubbed the “Omnipresent President” because of his tendency to involve himself in every day minutia? How hard would it be for Obama to get one of his media toadies to ask him about this, so he can take the opportunity to express his distaste for these flag desecrations?

7. Stop already with all forms of ‘cult of personality’ behavior. I am a public servant, just like all those who have served before and all who will come after my term is complete. It’s not about me, it’s about the country.
Perhaps he could surprise us all, and say something like that?
Or perhaps this is just par for the course for a guy who once had the United States flag removed from his campaign plane’s tail to be replaced with his personal logo.
A push-back seen on Facebook:
