The Prez held his annual Super Bowl viewing party at Mar-a-Lago, and joined everyone else in the room — standing for Demi Lovato‘s “Star Spangled Banner” rendition — but his behavior was far from traditional. Instead of standing at attention with a hand over his heart — as Melania did — Trump pretended he was conducting the orchestra, and awkwardly pointed at people around the room.
Tradition be damned.
You know by now, Bey and Jay are taking a lot of heat for sitting during the Anthem as they watched live from their seats at the big game. It came off like a protest of sorts … although neither has yet said what message, if any, they were trying to send.
No one could confuse the video of Trump — first posted by the Miami Herald — with a protest, but imagine if Jay-Z was on-camera acting that way during the Anthem.
Y’know Trump would STILL be mid-Twitter rant, nearly 24 hours after the fact.
Doesn’t it look like at the end of the video he about to sit down before its over?
