Mike Pence is here to support Israel, so he’s…throwing up that Nicaraguan flag?

As the veep began his speech for the Republican Jewish Coalition on Friday, the @slackup.meVP social media team decided to reiterate his pro-Israel stance by tweeting out its flag.

Unfortunately, they tweeted the Nicaraguan flag instead: not once, but twice.

As much as we’d like to find a “to be fair” caveat here, there really isn’t one. The flags both have blue stripes, we guess, but let’s face it: They just aren’t that similar.

Still fooled by those little emoji? Okay. Here is the Israeli flag.

Look at that star.
