The anti-American anthem protests have disgraced the NFL.
Shameless virtue-signalers in other sports and professions jumped on the bandwagon of disrespecting our flag.
But before a classic national championship game, President Trump reintroduced some order to the system.
Trump was welcomed by cheers and escorted onto the field by ROTC members to honor the flag during the singing of the Star-Spangled Banner.
In a first for his presidency, President Trump is attending the NCAA championship football game Monday evening, as the Georgia Bulldogs face off against the Alabama Crimson Tide in Atlanta, Georgia.
Of course left-wing media distorted the moment and said Trump was mostly booed despite evidence to the contrary.
The media also harped on the fact he didn’t sing the entire song, which is a silly criticism.
From Rolling Stone:
Donald Trump drew more than typical stares when he took to the field at Monday night’s college football national championship in Atlanta; he incurred the wrath and mockery of eagle-eyed TV viewers who noted that the current U.S. president didn’t seem to know the words to the national anthem.
In footage taken moments before the game, Trump can be seen with his right hand over his heart, squinting straight ahead and only mouthing the occasional word – and often off-beat – as country artist Zac Brown sings the “Star Spangled Banner.”
Social media lit up immediately afterward, with users criticizing Trump for flubbing the national anthem so badly, especially after his ongoing tirade against athletes who have refused to stand for the “Star Spangled Banner” in protest of racial discrimination and police violence. (He once called them “sons of b*tches.”)
And in a speech to the annual gathering of the American Farm Bureau Federation in Nashville just hours prior to the football game, Trump doubled down on his disdain for protesting athletes.
“We want our flag respected,” he said. “We want our national anthem respected also. There’s plenty of space for people to express their views and to protest, but we love our flag and we love our anthem, and we want to keep it that way.”
Players on both teams were absent from the field during the national anthem Monday, as is often the case during college football games, though the Atlanta branch of the NAACP encouraged those attending the game to wear white and wave white towels in protest against Trump’s policies and statements, a nod to conservatives’ nickname for liberals: “snowflakes.”
The hard left proves time and time again it hates America. Anyone who opposes the country gets honored with courage awards, magazine covers, or even tenured professorships.
Anyone who exhibits any pride gets mocked, even the President of the United States.
