Why were Trump supporters waving Russian flags at CPAC? Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Ben Mankiewicz, and Michael Brooks, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you who committed this prank. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“As the crowd waited to hear President Trump speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference, little red-white-and-blue flags appeared without warning, handed down the aisles by a man with a green bag, according to a witness.

The flags said "Trump." They also happened to be the flag of the Russian Federation.

"He was dressed like any one of us," said Tyler Dever, 20, a student at the University of South Florida in Tampa, who was wearing a suit. "He passed them to me and was like, 'Pass them down, pass them down.' "

Dever, caught up in the moment, passed them down, before someone sitting next to him said, "Oh, it's a Russian flag!" CPAC staff quickly recollected the flags.”
