    Trump sits, talks through song lowering the flag at military base

    In a shocking, though predictable bit of fate, the commander in chief sat and talked through a flag lowering ceremony.

    Fire the SOB.

    Indeed, seemingly totally unaware of everyone else and the ceremony, the man who whines incessantly about NFL players protesting racism did indeed not stand for the flag. One might think he did not care.

    Trump sits, talks through song lowering the flag at military base amid NFL anthem controversy

    President Trump sat and talked through the nightly playing of "Retreat" as the American flag was lowered on a Pennsylvania Air National Guard base during his interview with Sean Hannity.

    Trump, who has been criticizing NFL players who kneel through the national anthem to protest racism, seemed caught off-guard by loudspeakers playing "Retreat." The song is played every night at military bases to signal the American flag being lowered and the end of the official duty day.

    they shouldn't have scheduled an interview during that time. That's on his staff. But, as president, he should have stopped the interview and honored the lowering of the flag. He didn't recognize it for what it was. Neither did the audience. Which is even more disturbing.

    If you want to blame Trump you need to blame Obama.

    Now I personally chalk it up to presidents making simple mistakes but you can't hold one accountable without holding both of them accountable.

    Either Obama was too fucking stupid to know to shut up during a national anthem or he said fuck you to England and the Queen because what he had to say was more important than their national pride.

    You pick.
