In the middle of the primary election in New Hampshire Tuesday, the Washington Post tweeted out an image from the Hillary Clinton campaign that has created quite a stir.

"With many hours to go, Clinton's staff has flags ready for their election night party," reads the post.

Below is a photo by Washington Post photographer Melina Mara of American flags lying crumpled on the floor:

Here is an excerpt from the U.S. Flag Code on the proper way to show respect for the flag, including "never" letting it touch the ground (h/t John Nolte, Victory Girls):

§8. Respect for flag
No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

b. The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.

Some reaction online, including posts from disgusted veterans:

As polling had predicted leading up to the primary, Clinton was hammered by Bernie Sanders in the election, losing by around 20 points. Here is Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro's summary of just how bad a day it was for Clinton in New Hampshire:

On Tuesday night, the establishment took a massive uppercut to the chin in both parties. In the Democratic Party, the most establishment politician of all time, Hillary Clinton, got her clock cleaned by Bernie Sanders. He won 93 percent to 5 percent among those who valued honesty and trustworthiness. He won women by 11 points (Satan, obeying Madeline Albright’s advice, is already preparing their cubicles in hell). He won every non-elderly, non-wealthy group. Sanders beat Clinton by a massive margin – at 7:00 PM PST, he was up 59 percent to 38 percent.
