Trump rips the NFL for disrespecting the flag. Then he jokes about a military flag ceremony.
After he had repeatedly railed against professional athletes over perceived slights to the American flag and military, President Trump joked on Wednesday about a bugle call that is part of the armed forces’ time-honored tradition of showing respect for the Stars and Stripes.
The bugle call occurred during Trump’s interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, conducted in an airplane hangar used by the Pennsylvania Air National Guard in Harrisburg and before the president’s address on tax revision.
Being in the hangar, they didn’t have to do anything special, Schwartz said.
In 2007, comedian Robin Williams was performing for service members at an American base in Kuwait when his show was interrupted by Retreat. The entire audience stood to salute, while Williams removed his hat and stood quietly. I’m not going to forget that, Williams said after the ceremony was over.
Footage of Williams’s solemn reaction was captured by a soldier and later featured on Late Night with David Letterman. It’s since been viewed millions of times on YouTube.
