That moment when the immigrant has to remind the POTUS to put his hand over his heart during the national anthem.

(Is that Sean Spicer up there with him?)

As you might imagine Twitter had a field day with this.




Every single day there are more and more reasons to feel shame for what is happening in our country right now.

    Trump is such an embarrassment to our country. He does not represent me as potus. I did not vote for him, have zero respect for him and think he is racist and a war monger.

    May he not last this first term of office! He's pure evil and unAmerican!

    1. No, I'm sure he thinks because he's President he doesn't have to salute, that the people are saluting HIM.

    Where is his tweet best Easter Egg Hunt in the history of the world ? We had the hugggest, mostest eggs.

    He can blame the whole fiasco on Melanomia, since it was her job to organize it.

    Did they send spicy boy to Walmart to buy Made in China Easter Eggs since they never responded to the company in Maine that usually makes them?

    Did he charge the taxpayers for the left over trump bubba hats to throw out to the kids?

    HA HA HA, the moron is violating his own executive order by hiring foreign workers at his properties and making his products overseas, but that is ok with his supporters.
    ========================================
    Trump to sign executive order reviewing ‘Buy American, Hire American’ practices

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday will sign an executive order aimed at bolstering his pledge to “buy American and hire American” by directing federal agencies to probe government procurement practices and re-examine all programs under which workers enter the United States from abroad — including H-1B visas, a key priority for tech companies.

    The “Buy American” aspect of the order will focus primarily on “the twin pillars of maximizing ‘Made in America’ content and minimizing waivers and exceptions to ‘Buy American’ laws,” a senior administration official told reporters late Monday afternoon. .......
    Trump has long promised to pursue a “Buy American, Hire American” initiative, which aims to limit the purchase of goods manufactured abroad and the use of foreign workers. He included the goal in two of his highest-profile speeches since entering the Oval Office — his inaugural address in January and his joint address to Congress in February — and tweeted last month that the initiative represents “the core of [his] agenda.”

    Well little donnie did promise to pay all their legal fees.

    Guess his supporters are going to find out it was just another one of the many lies told by Donald Trump.
    ==========================
    White nationalist claims Trump directed rally violence

    Trump supporter asks a federal court to hold the president liable for any damages stemming from a lawsuit filed by protesters who attended a Kentucky campaign stop.

    A white nationalist leader accused of assaulting a young African-American woman at a Donald Trump campaign rally filed a countersuit on Monday claiming the president directed him and other supporters to remove protesters.

    Matthew Heimbach claims in his federal court filing that he “acted pursuant to the directives and requests of Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump for President” and that, if he’s found liable for damages, “any liability must be shifted to one or both of them.”.......

      What is the deal with little donnie always clapping at the head of the stairs on Air Force one? Is he clapping for himself, that they managed to land or is this part of his OCD ritual before going down stairs?

      Why did they have the presidential seal on the balcony, who else would be living in the W.H besides russians?

    3. Don't the masters clap to get the servants jumping and moving? I'm sure he's muttering "hop to it" under his breath.

      He also hates to go up and down stairs (hence all of the escalators in his buildings.)

    Today I saw this guy. Dressed in camo and driving an old Toyota camo painted small truck. It had welding equiptment, the usual stickers. "don't tread on me" Bengazi this and that. blah blah blah and then a little cage built with small wire with a little doll in it. It was Hillary in prison uniform and another bumper sticker of lock her up. For the added visual he had attached a 12ft flag pole with the American Flag flying.
    Seems the Law Enforcement Agencies would want to just stop this guy and make sure that his head is not missing a few screws.
    Then I jumped on the freeway and another guy lost his entire truck load of boxes. Guns Ammo the usual stuff one lugs around town.
    Hello? Is anyone out there? Its me, an American.

    I caught that moment too! (Not watching live, I was at work-I also try to avoid seeing him willingly if at all possible - saw the clip on a Raw Story article) The thing that caught *my* attention at first was (and *not* for the first time) how Trumplethinskin *twisted* to-and-fro like a bored kindergartner with ADHD, *then*, like a kid caught daydreaming, had to be nudged and reminded as to *WHAT* to do *when*! And think of it! THIS is our supposed LEADER! ALL eyes are on HIM (metaphorically) at this moment; he's supposed to 'look Presidential' and 'lead us' - Melania had to lead HIM!!! It's like she's his nanny!
    THANK doG CNN posted that and got the word out!
    I also noted at Raw Story (as 'BookLove') that Obama would've been REAMED for such a transgression!
    The Crooks and Liars site likened the debacle to the 'Hunger Games'...::chuckle:: and noted the horrible attendance. These chuckleheads would screw up boiling water.

    Putting one's hand over the heart is not required. In fact, I think it's a new addition. When I was in school (born 1962) we were taught hand over the heart for pledge, stand at attention for anthem.

    Find video of someone singing the national anthem at an old ball game and no one has their hand over their hearts unless they're removing their hats.

    This is part and parcel of the modern fashion to "out-patriot" someone else.

    2. Me too. Hand over heart for pledge. Hands by your sides for the anthem, whether you are singing it or not.

      I have no idea when pledging to the national anthem began, but I'm sure it was by a right wing fundie.
