That’s a blaring red siren

Rachel Maddow uttered this one on her podcast the other night. It is a congruent conflation of “a big red flag” and “sirens blaring”, both meaning warning signs. Sirens aren’t red, Rachel.

Here’s the link to the podcast (malaphor heard at 6:35 minute mark):

A big thanks to Frank King who heard this one and sent it in.
