Ryan Clayton, president of Americans Take Action, a populist group geared towards "restor[ing] free and fair elections in America, creat[ing] a purpose driven economy, and sav[ing] the free and open internet," took action against President Trump this week when he threw a handful of Russian flags with the word "Trump" inscribed on them at the President as he entered a meeting with senators on Capitol Hill.
As he shouted "Trump is treason" over and over, Clayton, who had previously tried to get the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner to sign a Russian flag, was taken into custody and charged with unlawful conduct.
Twitter, of course, was titillated.
Some guy found his way into press pool and threw Russian flags at Trump then shouted: “Trump is treason!” https://t.co/dN3yAUtKpz— Dr. HawaiiDelilah™ (@Dr. HawaiiDelilah™)1508865143.0
One Twitter user in particular zeroed in on Trump's companion, Mitch McConnell.

Other people speculated about the surrounding decorations.Twitter user @mikea1hill tried to articulate the thoughts of a nearby covered statue, stating, "Even the statue knows its toxic." That cover looks like it's there for the dust, but who knows...
Others took the opportunity to divert conversation back to the state of Trump's tax returns.
