During Sunday evening’s Super Bowl Party at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump couldn’t stand still long enough to pretend to care about the National Anthem. Video has emerged showing Trump fidgeting and pretending to conduct an orchestra while everyone else in the room is standing respectfully. The man has zero class, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.

By Donald Trump’s own standards that he set back in 2018, he himself should be kicked out of the United States of America. Back in 2018 Donald Trump tweeted out the following, he said, you have to stand proudly, oh, I’m sorry this was on Fox and Friends. You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem or you shouldn’t be playing. You shouldn’t be there, talking about NFL athletes. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country, Donald Trump told us on Fox and Friends all the way back in 2018, maybe you shouldn’t be in the country if you can’t stand peacefully and proudly during the National Anthem. Well, that’s got to come as a shock to Donald Trump because now we have this video of him on Sunday evening at a Super Bowl party playing, fidgeting, and pretending to conduct an orchestra during the National Anthem. Take a look.

Demi Lovato:                *singing* Were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Now, at first I wanted to compare Donald Trump to a stoned teenager, right? But then I thought that is really insulting to any teenager who smokes pot. Instead, what I have decided to compare him to is a drunken toddler. You know, maybe you left a glass of champagne sitting out on the table, kid thought it was Sprite, went up and had a couple sips and then starts doing all this crazy stuff and doesn’t know that I got to sit still and be respectful because, yeah, you do it over here guys. All Right, Nationally Anthem, hell yeah. That’s the president of the United States though. And according to him, he doesn’t drink, he doesn’t do drugs. So he was allegedly of sound body and mind. And he’s sitting there acting like a mental patient during the playing of the National Anthem. His wife and his son, Melania and Barron right next to him, hands over their heart, standing up straight, super respectful, perfectly fine.

And then this moron, I mean, he’s pointing at people, he’s fidgeting, he can’t sit still, he doesn’t seem to know what’s happening. And this is the guy who called Colin Kaepernick, a son of a bitch because he took a knee during the National Anthem? I can tell you that taking a knee is far more respectful than sitting there pretending to conduct an orchestra, Mr. Trump, you have no class. Colin Kaepernick and all of the other NFL players who have kneeled during the National Anthem were not disrespecting the National Anthem. If anything, it takes a lot more to get down on one knee during a National Anthem than it does to just stand there with your hand over your heart. But you, you did disrespect the country. You respect, disrespected the National Anthem, and you disrespected every single person that resides in this country. Because that’s what you do. And I’m sure Fox news, who made huge deals about Colin Kaepernick, man, I can’t wait until they get ahold of this and see that their idol, the false God that they’ve been lifting up on their shoulder for over three years, is doing something far worse than any NFL player could ever imagine doing during the National Anthem.
