Ignorant Trump fails to stand for flag as soldiers render honors (video)

After all the furor Trump has caused by criticizing NFL players for taking a knee during the national anthem, you would think that as president he would honor the flag. But you would be wrong. During an interview with Fox host Sean Hannity, U.S. military personnel were rendering honors to the flag. As a part of this process, all uniformed service personnel salute in the direction of the flag and civilians are to stand in place their hands over their hearts. An oblivious Trump remarked that the music sounded nice and wondered who it was being played for during the interview with Hannity. Below you can see Presdient Trump disrespecting the U.S. flag out of pure ignorance and vanity.

  1. The song playing is retreat which signifies the end of the duty day at a military installation and the lowering of the flag. Each branch has customs and courtesies and installation commanders set to pay respect to the flag when being played. When indoors no one has to do anything despite hearing it in the background. Not sure why the people in the background stood up. The national anthem may or may not play after retreat. Every installation is different. As a veteran I hear a lot of people speaking on our behalf that we are being disrespected because if individuals kneeling/locking arms when the national anthem being played. I have sacrificed a lot for my country so that people have the right to kneel/lock arms for what is right.

    1. President Trump was being interviewed!! He truly did not know what the music was being played for! It figures some leftist liberal writer would jump on this to call our President ignorant!!! You sir, the author of this piece is ignorant to print this false FAKE NEWS article!!! I’m appalled at all this type of crap that is written about President Trump that is so untrue!
      UNBELIEVABLE!!!!’

        1. Did you even take the time to watch the interview with Sean Hannity that President Trump was doing? It sounded like it just came out of left field and Our President was startled by it ! I don’t think he realizes what was playing! My goodness, such judgmental people! In your other response, you said you served so every American has the right to sit, stand or kneel during the National Anthem!! I wonder if you’d be saying that if the players majority was white?! And than why are you making a big deal of it that the President sat and didn’t stand during that music during the interview!!! If football players do it for one patriot song, why can’t the President sit for a different song?? Because he’s white???

          1. Lol, that whole thread was a contradiction.. You sir are a part of the reason is it because you’re “white”?

          2. I never said once said the color of his skin was the reason why he was sitting or standing. If ANYONE chooses to stand or kneel. It is their right to do so. BTW retreat plays at 5pm Monday-Friday on every US military installation on the dot around the world.

        2. Je allegedly attended amilitary school. I’m sure retreat and reveille and retreat were played there! He was being flippant and hamming it up for the cameras and his base. He could stopped the interview and remained silent for a minute! Sad and direspectful action from the so called commander of the Armed Forces!

        1. You’ve got some nerve there, Mr. Genius is it? Just because someone has a different opinion, DOES NOT MAKE THEM STUPID! Why don’t you grow up and quit acting liking an ignorant bully!

        1. Really? I disagree with you! I think our President walks with his head held high, walks with confidence and is a very smart and intelligent man! Obviously more people agree with me! After all, the people voted him Into the White House!!! MAGA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

          1. Narcissists usually do. That’s a whole lot different than self confidence!

            It is a greatly inflated sense of self-importance.

            Great leaders temper authority and power with humility .

            Haven’t seen that in the current POTUS at all.

          2. Like I said, majority rules and that’s how he got voted into the WH! You are all mixed up as to how you interpit an individual! I suppose Obama was “all that” in your opinion! President Trump has surpassed Obama already in achievements for The USA! There is still so much more to come!!!
            President Trump, in MY opinion, you’ve are a talented, smart and savvy businessman that knows how to get things done! God Bless and may your accomplishments come swift and without conflict from Liberal judges!!!❤️🇺🇸

          3. “interpret” is the word, not “interpit” as you have written.

            No, I did not agree with everything Obama did, in fact, it took me a while to make up my mind about him as a candidate, and as a president.

            If you consider the hatred and harm he is intent on inflicting upon people of color, be they black, red, tan, yellow or pink with polka-dots as achievements, then you are as full of hatred and narcissism as he is.

          4. By the way, Rose Walisiak, I do not automatically vote for a person based on the color of their skin, which I believe you can “interpit” from my previous comment. That goes for local elections as well. For now, I make my own decisions, which, under the current administration, may soon no longer be a right I can claim.

            This was a “revenge” election and is a revenge administration, which is designed to harm non-white citizens of every socioeconomic class, and negate the social progress made by any and every POTUS who has served prior.

          5. Obviously, you do not consider me among “the people” who voted, even though I do have that right for now. All of my rights as a citizen are in grave danger because of people like you who eschew inclusion.

            MAGA is code for “Make America SEGREGATED again” , although I’m sure you would prefer genocide upon all people of color, but especially those of us proud to be of African descent. Remember, most of us didn’t come here voluntarily; we were brought by force, in shakles, enslaved, but we *still* achieved great things, most of them stolen from us and credited to “white superiority”, which it seems you have embraced in a double portion.

            Have a nice day.
