    Left-wing protesters prepared a surprise for President Trump during his Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) speech outside of Washington DC, and duped many of his supporters in the process.

    On Friday morning at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, a group of attendants eagerly awaiting to hear from President Trump were caught waving flags, but something was a bit fishy. 

    ​Oh it’s just a pro-Trump flag, right? Not quite.

    Got it yet? Maybe this will help. 

    Yup, it’s the flag of mother Russia.

    ​​Staffers, clueless at first, quickly collected all the little flags from event-goers once they realized what was going on.

    ​It’s fair to say some people weren’t even sure it this was a prank or a protest.

    ​So, was this merely a coincidence? Hmm, not so.

    According to CPAC attendees, Americans Take Action, a far left group whose mission is to get Trump impeached, was the culprit behind the prank. Shockingly enough the president of the group, Ryan Clayton, decided to pose as a Russian Trump supporter, but was later ousted by the media.  

    ​Nice try, guys!
