Everything had started off well for U.S. President Donald Trump when he visited the Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, however things quickly took an embarrassing turn after cameras captured the president's coloring of the American flag.
Following his tour of the neonatal medical unit Friday, Trump sat with slightly older children as they colored pictures of American flags and hearts with red, white and blue.
He told them they were doing a "great job" but the president himself was nowhere near 'great', let alone right.
The president seemed to have forgetten the color order of the U.S. national flag which consists of 13 red and white alternating stripes and 50 white stars on a blue field.

The mistake soon became the subject of memes and mocking tweets.
