A very simple concept, it says that the US flag always flies highest when displayed in America, especially when displayed at a government building.
(c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for the personnel of the Navy. No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any other national or international flag equal, above, or in a position of superior prominence or honor to, or in place of, the flag of the United States at any place within the United States or any Territory or possession thereof: Provided, That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the headquarters of the United Nations.
Get that? Even the flag of the United Nations can only be displayed equal to Old Glory except at UN Headquarters.

I realize I am a stickler for flag etiquette. I'm that guy that will stop by a bank or hotel just to tell them that they are flying their flags incorrectly-the US flag goes on the highest flag pole, then the state flag, then your company flag.
But this is the damn White House, where there are dozens of people whose sole job is to advise on protocol.
Last thought-maybe if we hadn't increased the debt by 40% over the last two years of sole Democrat rule, we wouldn't have to kiss the ass of the Chinese 'president' when he visits the country he increasingly owns, lock stock and barrel.
