Trump Fan Attempts to Set Fire to Her Steelers Flag and Jersey - and Fails Miserably

In a video unearthed by WorldStar HipHop, an unidentified woman calling herself a life-long Steelers fan attempts to burn her jersey and team flag but is unable to get them to ignite.

According to the woman, who admits that she lives in Maryland, she has had it with the Steelers and their coach Mike Tomlin after they didn’t come out for the national anthem last Sunday.

“For as long as I can remember, I have been a Steelers fan, but I have been an American longer than that” she begins as she stands next to an American flag while wearing a Steelers shirt. “Coach Tomlin, I read what you said, and the fact that you said people shouldn’t have to make a choice. What’s the choice between standing for stupidity and standing for our American flag?”

“From now on, I’m done with the Steelers,” she continues. “I stood for you guys, I fought for you guys, I even argued for you guys — living in Maryland! And this is what I get in return?”

She then tears her shirt off revealing a Trump t-shirt underneath, before adding, “Go to hell, all of you. The only flag that is going to fly in my house anymore is the United States flag.”

She then attempts to set the flag on fire using a lighter, but it never takes, before dropping it to the ground and making several more attempts to set in on fire. She then holds the torn t-shirt over the non-existent flame before dropping the shirt and calling it “a rag.”

“Go to hell, Steelers, go to hell, NFL. Piss off,” she concludes as a tiny wisp of smoke rises from the pile of fabric at her feet.
