You know, I sure do get tired of Republicans questioning the patriotism of their fellow Americans when they choose not to subscribe to petty, meaningless, posturing gestures. For example, wearing the little flab pins on your lapel, or not using the proper salute to our military.
But it’s just downright hypocritical when they’re so damn quick to blast Democrats for this and that, when they can’t even be trusted to follow proper flag etiquette. You know, like placing your hand over your heart when the National Anthem is being played or sung.
By the way, that just happened.
First Lady Melania Trump actually appeared at the White House earlier today. She teamed up with the President for the Annual White House Easter Egg Roll. As the festivities were about to begin, everyone paused for a moment to listen to our National Anthem. That’s when Donald Trump – the President of the United States of America – had to be reminded to place his hand over his heart…by Melania.
That’s a subtle nudge from Melania to remind Trump to lift his hand during the national anthem… https://t.co/P9XlYpjvcQ

Get real. The Huffington Post reminds us that President Obama was frequently accused of not placing his hand over his heart, a gesture that is generally perceived as being anti-patriotic. Those claims were regularly debunked.
