Donald Trump backers stormed out of a local GOP meeting Saturday in Georgia after losing bids to become delegates to the Republican National Convention. To add some dramatic flair to their departure, they took the American flag with them.

“I hope you’re proud! Proud to be an American,” one Republican activist can be heard yelling in video of the contentious meeting in Georgia’s 7th Congressional District, taken by Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Greg Bluestein:

A Trump supporter wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat can be seen marching out of the room carrying the American flag. Some in the audience can be heard bursting into laughter.

Trump finished first in the Peach State’s Republican primary in March, but he earned only 12 to 14 of the state’s available delegates, according to the AJC. His presidential rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) nabbed 32 delegates during the GOP conventions held Saturday in congressional districts across the state.

Trump’s national delegate director, Brian Jack, accused the Cruz campaign of organizing a coordinated “attack” in Georgia to earn delegates.

Jack told Breitbart News in a Sunday interview that Cruz officials encouraged tactics including “private backroom nominations committees producing ‘recommended’ slates, county delegations voting in blocs” and “floor motions made targeting our supporters.”

TPM has reached out to the Cruz campaign for comment.

  4. Wow, did I read the headline wrong the first time. I thought it said that Trump backers stormed out of a meeting with a US flag. And then I pictured a bunch of people shouting obscenities at an inanimate object. Which seemed perfectly normal because, well, Trump backers.
