Is Trump on drugs, disrespectful, or both? From the man who attacked Colin Kaepernick for kneeling in protest, is seen in this video acting absolutely absurd and disrespectful during the national anthem played before the Super Bowl at his club in Florida.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly said all Americans should “stand proudly” during the national anthem, and publicly chastises those who don’t as disrespectful of the troops and the flag.
But during the national anthem at his own Super Bowl watch party Sunday night, a brief video posted to Instagram shows Trump greeting guests, adjusting his chair, and straightening his suit jacket as other attendees — including first lady Melania Trump and their teenage son — stand with their hands over their hearts. As “The Star Spangled Banner” crescendoes, Trump raises both of his hands in the air, and twirls them around as if conducting the music.
The video was included in an Instagram story by a real estate agent for a Russian-American firm who frequents Mar-a-Lago and other Trump properties and events.
Sure glad we spent the past few years listening to Trump’s faux outrage over kneeling during the national anthem! He obviously takes this song very, very seriously. pic.twitter.com/qgA5NSeUG2
