Demonstrators were seen gathering in Philadelphia on September 15 in order to protest US President Donald Trump's arrival at the city for a town hall at the National Constitution Center. He arrived at Philadelphia International Airport around 4:40 pm. Protesters and supporters of the president gathered at Independence Mall ahead of the town hall and among them was one particular demonstrator who ran the American flag through her underwear as an act of protest in front of Trump supporters who were present at the scene. Video footage shows a female demonstrator sporting a Trump mask, blue blazer and pink underwear standing in between a group of Trump supporters and opposers.

The demonstrator had stuffed the American flag into her underwear, the Daily Caller's Shelby Talcott posted. Talcott also shared several videos from the anti- and pro-Trump protests, one of which included the demonstrator in the pink underwear shoving the flag into her underwear. 



 

Many social media users have slammed the demonstrator for her behavior and have taken to the comments section to do so. One such user had written, "This says more about the woman than it does about the pro-Trump protesters. Why would the woman spend the time to dress up and disgrace a US flag? It's not going to make anyone agree with her, and it makes her look stupid to regular people and (future employers.) It's stupid." Another outraged user who branded the woman as 'stupid' took to social media to say, "I'm pretty sure the woman running the Flag through her underwear has been stupid since day one! As for her looking stupid, she is certainly a success at that!"  "Sounds like the antics of someone with limited talent working for that 15 minutes. If the mask stays on it’s a sign of just enough intelligence to hold on to a little bit of dignity," commented another disgusted social media user on the footage. 



 

 



 

 



 

Yet another user who echoed the same sentiments wrote, "Well, considering she must have thought of it as an insult to do that, she just discredited herself & her crotch!" As per a report by the Philadelphia Inquirer, demonstrators who had gathered outside the National Constitution Center had outnumbered the Trump supporters. Talcott had also shared another video online which showed a pro-Trump demonstrator and an anti-Trump demonstrator engaging in a civil but spirited disagreement from across the barrier. A few people near them had tried to intervene in the conversation but were shushed. 



 

Many social media users praised the interaction and willingness to have a conversation between the two. One such user had written, "I’ll take a spirited ‘discussion any day over the crap we’ve been seeing for months on the streets. Both sides can learn from one another, going to take work, eventually reach some common ground. Yes, verbal revolution can lead to resolution. This is a good. Hope to see more." Another user who was impressed with the willingness to try and have a conversation had written, "This should be a how-to video. It can be done. We're all human and should be discussing our differences. It's also to impotent to realize what we have in common. That's life skills, not just for politics. It's easy if you try."

Another social media user who echoed the same sentiments chimed called the discussion 'much nicer than riots'.
