President Trump finally came back to Washington after his four day vacation to Florida to hold the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, or God knows he probably would have stayed at Mar-a-Lago longer. During the Egg Roll, Trump committed a seriously tactless act that left many Americans who witnessed it stunned.
First lady Melania Trump and her son Barron both had the common sense to put their hands over their hearts during the singing of the national anthem, but then again its been proven time and time again that common sense is something that Donald Trump lacks. Trump forgot, or just blatantly did not bother to put his hand over his heart, having to be reminded not-so-subtly by Melania to do so. Melania, who isn’t even originally from America, had more respect for the national anthem than the man who claims to want to “make America great again.” Let that sink in.
Maybe to most this wouldn’t be considered the biggest deal, considering everything that has been going on as of late but the hypocrisy of this act is glaringly obvious. The very same Donald Trump who “forgot” to put his hand over his heart publicly called out the 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem at one of their football games.
So while Colin Kaepernick chose to take a knee during the anthem, to protest what he deemed as injustice against African Americans and other minority groups during a football game, Trump cannot be bothered to show proper respect during the anthem at the White House.
If President Obama had committed such a disrespectful act during the anthem, conservatives would have demanded his head on a platter, and questioned whether he was dedicated to America. Of course, when it comes to their precious Trump the conservatives remain silent.
Looks like the small turn out for the White House Easter Egg Roll won’t be the only thing that people will be talking about this year.
