Trump And Feces Pile Sean Hannity Sit Through Retreat Dishonoring Military, Flag


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.

Military site Task and Purpose was the first to notice Trump sitting during the song. According to Task and Purpose, uniformed service members are required to stop what they're doing and salute the flag as its lowered during the song while civilians are required to place their hand over their heart.

Trump not only does not stand or place his hand over his heart, but instead talks through the song and assumes it's being played to honor him or Hannity.

People watching the rally can be seen standing for the song in the background of Trump's interview, but Trump seems to not know what the song means.

"Are they playing that for you or for me?" Trump joked to Hannity.

"They're playing that in honor of his ratings. He's beating everybody."

Trump's ignorance of an American military tradition comes after weeks of railing against NFL players for "disrespecting the flag" for kneeling during the national anthem. The kneeling players are protesting racism and police brutality by taking a knee during the anthem played before games.

Trump last tweeted about the anthem protests Wednesday, demanding NFL players "RESPECT OUR COUNTRY."

YOU silly!! Trump doesn't wear a uniform---or at least not a military uniform--so he doesn't NEED to stand for the retreat and there's always that reliable "the rule doesn't apply to me" thingy. Dotard uses THAT rule a lot!
Thanks from tristanrobin and RNG
