President Donald Trump has been very clear about his stance on any protests against police brutality, racial inequality and injustice that occur during the national anthem.
Less clear is his stance on his own behavior.
In the wake of an embarrassing display of ignorance regarding the location of Kansas City, a new Twitter moment is developing over Trump's performance as Demi Lovato sang the anthem during Sunday's Super Bowl.
Trump did not attend the game in Miami. Instead he spent the time with paying international customers at Mar-a-Lago in nearby Palm Beach, Florida.
One of those willing to pay to spend time with the President released a video of what Trump was doing during the anthem Sunday. The video was posted to Instagram by a "real estate agent for a Russian-American firm who frequents Mar-a-Lago and other Trump properties and events."
From there it moved to Twitter. While First Lady Melania Trump stands still with her hand on her heart, her husband looks more like a hyperactive toddler than a man devoted to respecting the flag or the anthem.
You can watch the video here:
His prior behavior during the anthem—where he fidgeted and appeared to not know the words—was noted.
Trump also seems unfamiliar with other well known patriotic songs like "God Bless America."
Not content to allow the President to stand alone in his hypocrisy, conservative pundits and the President's favorite network—unless they criticize him—decided to be hypocritical as well.
Fox News and others attacked Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter for remaining seated during the anthem.
As expected, these same critics of non-violent protest by people of color remained silent about the anthem antics of the President.
