Trump Disrespects Anthem – Obama’s Advisor Responds In Best Way Possible
On Easter Sunday, just before his first time hosting the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, President Donald Trump stood on the Truman balcony with First Lady Melania and their son Barron Trump.
As the national anthem played, Trump failed to do just one major thing.
According to the Flag code of the United States of America, every person who is present while the national anthem is playing should be standing with their right hand over their heart during the song:
‘During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.’
It wasn’t until Melania nudged her clueless husband that he quickly put his hand over his heart.
It’s not like he’s been an American citizen his whole life or anything, right?
Or maybe he thought he had immunity since he is the president of the United States.
Whatever was going through his tiny little brain, all there really is to say is, seriously?

Former President Barack Obama’s senior advisor, Dan Pfeiffer, was astonished at this moment and immediately noted that if Obama ever didn’t put his hand over his heart for the Star-Spangled Banner during his presidency, it would have become the century’s biggest scandal.
Pfeiffer went to Twitter, saying:
This goes without saying but if this had been Barack Obama, it would have been wall to wall coverage on Fox for the next three years https://t.co/kFxKqyUfBX

The former advisor is absolutely right. During Trump’s first few months in office he has done some pretty sketchy things that would have more than likely gotten Obama impeached.
