    Looks like somebody at NBC Central is about to become a “free agent”.

    ABC News doesn’t know which flag is the US flag. No surprise here.

    • WhoDat

      Detroit’s ABC affiliate that is owned by the company that does the National Spelling Bee.

    Was that graphic created by one of Obama’s ambassadors?

    So the person from CNN who put Hong Kong in Brazil now works for NBC? Figures.

    …and remember these are the same people who want to tell you what to believe about world events and whom to vote for, and if you disagree you’re an uneducated rube and probably a racist.

    Well, they got Norway and Austria correct. 2/5 would be a passing grade in a lot of schools these days, it seems.

    • drw

      40% is that what they mean by 4.0 gpa?

  • Jack Deth

    Tell me again, WHY we are participating in this embarrassing farce?

  • Mike

    How about getting the name of our nation correct? Team USA? How about USA or United States?

    Does that flag have the usual 57 stars on it?

    Oh man. That is a really bad whopper.

    It wasn’t our fault eh, signed Canada.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    They probably hired the same people who worked on Healthcare.gov.

  • Chris Chambers

    The counts are right though!

  • ToyZebra

    We have been conquered by Canada when we weren’t looking! I knew we couldn’t trust them.

    • BlueGood

      He heh…NOW we will get rid of Obamacare, EPA and Federal Education…P.M. Stephen Harper IS a Conservative!…LOL

      It was Alanis Morissette and Avril Lavigne . . . they were really the front line invaders. The Jim Carey front was just a distraction.

      • Part138

        No, it was Bieber!

        • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

          America would never succumb to the likes of Bieber . . . Avril on the other hand . . . .

      • GaryTheBrave

        Celine Dion led the Quebecois faction.

        • Part138

          Speaking of Celine Dion, I wonder why she dropped out of school. Don’t young singers on the road usually have tutors?

  • Maryland_Malcontent

    Have we gone so socialist that we can be confused for Canada?

    If we’re merging with them, we should use our flag. It looks cooler.

  • ICOYAR

    I don’t want to live under the tyrannical rule of the evil Canadian dictatorship! I would rather stay here, south of that DMZ. I do not want World War 3 to happen because Canada wants to nuke us!
