Navy Seal Convoy Flying Trump Flag Down Highway

A Navy SEAL convoy was seen on video flying a Donald Trump flag on a highway near Louisville, Kentucky, a Navy spokesperson told ABC News.
The clip showing the lead vehicle flying the Trump flag was shot Sunday and left many wondering who the vehicle occupants were and if they were with a military unit or were military surplus, ABC News said.
Now military officials are investigating if the flag-flying equates to misconduct, the network reported.
“Defense Department and Navy regulations prescribe flags and pennants that may be displayed as well as the manner of display,” Lt. Jacqui Maxwell, a spokesperson for Naval Special Warfare Group 2, told ABC News. “The flag shown in the video was unauthorized.”
Maxwell added to the network that the convoy consisted of “service members assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit driving vehicles while transiting between two training locations.”
Naval Special Warfare Unit is the official Navy term for SEALs, ABC News said.
However, Navy Special Warfare Units consist of various support staff, which means those who were inside the vehicle flying the flag may not be SEALs, Maxwell added to the network.
Maxwell said the unit commander will “make a disposition decision as to the appropriate administrative or disciplinary action” if it’s determined that misconduct occurred.
Here’s one clip. An occupant in the vehicle from where the video was taken apparently says, “You’ve got to be kidding me,” as it approaches the military vehicle flying the Trump flag:
