Democratic National Convention
The North Carolina GOP was not happy about Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine blatantly wearing a Honduras flag pin on his jacket at the Democratic National Convention, "but no American flag." "Shameful," the group's account tweeted, only to be corrected: It wasn't the flag of Honduras Kaine was wearing, but a Blue Star Service pin honoring his son, a deployed Marine.
WNYT reporter Ben Amey caught the embarrassing mistake:
The North Carolina GOP may have been confused because decades ago Kaine served as a missionary in Honduras. But compare the images side-by-side, and, well…
(Flag of Honduras)
(Blue Star Service Banner)
The North Carolina GOP deleted its tweet and thanked Amey for setting them straight.
