The City of Brotherly Love welcomed President Trump on Tuesday by using the American flag as flossing material for private parts.

Protesters gathered near National Constitution Center prior to the Republican’s town hall event with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

Footage captured by The Daily Caller’s Shelby Talcott showed Black Lives Matter activists taunting Mr. Trump’s supporters with “Put it in they [sic] faces!” after a woman wearing a Trump mask ran the flag through her pants.

“A woman in a Trump mask stands in front of some pro-Trump protesters and runs the American flag through the inside of her underwear,” Ms. Talcott tweeted.

Some of Mr. Trump’s supporters also spoke to a local ABC affiliate.

“I’ve been a Democrat my entire life,” one Philadelphia voter told the station. “I walked away from the Democrats a year ago and never looked back.”

A protester identified as Brandon Crawford told the station that he was “marching for Black lives, against racism, against Donald Trump, Mike Pence — we’re demanding change.”

Another participant, Lupe Fernandez, said she wanted people to “educate themselves” on various forms of “injustice.”

Ms. Talcott noted that protests “fizzled” earlier than usual after cops prevented many activists from blocking traffic on a nearby highway.
