For the most part, today's reactions to last night's presidential reaction have been a predictable mix of partisan lunacy and more measured calls for national unity.
But it seems a McDonald's restaurant in Follansbee, West Virginia, is particularly distressed. The fast food eatery was spotted flying the American flag upside down this morning at half-mast -- typically a signal that the flag-bearer is in jeopardy and in dire need of assistance.
An upside-down flag can also be interpreted as a protest. Today, many saw the flag as an objection to last night's presidential election results.
According to News9, an employee at the restaurant indicated the flag's position had been set by the owner.
A person representing themselves as the owner of that McDonald's later contacted News9 and told the station that the flag's position and appearance was the result of a mistake. (Well it is West Virginia)
