In September during an Iowa Fry Steak, Omaba has hands crossed infront of his crotch during the National Anthem. Now some have argued that it was a matter of timing, that this picture was snapped just before the Anthem started or right after it ended. However video from the event shows that he was poised this way throughtout the Anthem.
Is this the man you want as our next President. He has already refused to wear the US Flag lapel pin because the thinks that it is too patriotic. Now the National Anthem is to too Patriotic for him. Even Hillary has the decency to follow protocol…
Can you picture what his Oath of Office will be like?
And for those confused on what the proper conduct for the National Anthem is, there is the Flag code:
(a) Designation.— The composition consisting of the words and music known as the Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem.
(b) Conduct During Playing.— During a rendition of the national anthem—
(1) when the flag is displayed—
(A) all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart;
(B) men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold the headdress at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart; and
(C) individuals in uniform should give the military salute at the first note of the anthem and maintain that position until the last note; and
(2) when the flag is not displayed, all present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed.
