Though Democrats like Gov. Gavin Newsom (CA) and presidential candidates Julián Castro and Beto O’Rourke are busy concern trolling this 4th of July week in response to Nike’s decision to bail on the Betsy Ross-themed shoe, Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has chosen to go in the opposite direction in honor of this special holiday.

Well before many Americans even had a chance to roll out of the bed to begin their grill prep for today’s festivities, McConnell took to the Twitter machine to wish everyone a happy Independence Day … by tweeting out an image of the Betsy Ross flag:

Just the day before, in the midst of all of the triggered leftists who were rushing before the cameras to give their super hot takes on Nike’s move, McConnell urged the company to bring back the shoe and other shoe/clothing makers to take up the mantle in the event Nike didn’t:

“If we’re in a political environment where the American flag has become controversial to Americans, I think we’ve got a problem,” McConnell said. “I hope Nike either releases these shoes or some other shoe maker picks up the flag, puts it on a pair of shoes and starts selling it. I’ll make the first order.”

As it turns out, another company did just that – as Red State‘s Brandon Morse noted earlier today. Here’s what they look like, and how you can get a pair:

Per their website, Out of Line Active is “founded by women For women.”

In addition to that, a veteran-owned company out of Georgia is selling a variety of Betsy Ross flag t-shirts.

Capitalism. Patriotism. BBQ and fireworks. Colorful fashions. Trolling leftists. It’s a good day in America.
