[Ed. – Sadly, yes.]
There seemed to be no American flag present up on stage at the Democratic primary debate in Houston, Texas, on Thursday night.
A videographer present at the event at Texas Southern University — as well as many others watching the event on television — could find no sign of Old Glory there up front at the venue.
The national anthem was sung at the beginning of the event (though that was not televised — that part was livestreamed only).
And during the performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” by Breanna Lindsey, a 20-year-old student at the school, the American flag was visible as she sang.
