On 9/11 of all days, President Donald Trump not only appeared to forget the words to the Pledge of Allegiance, but he also skipped the “under God” part.
The 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks also reminded Americans once again that Trump himself has repeatedly disrespected those who perished that day by telling lies and making the tragedy about himself.
For instance, soon after the World Trade Center towers fell Trump bragged that he now owned the tallest building in New York. He also lied about helping out at Ground Zero.
And so, to absolutely no one’s surprise, Trump and his wife First Lady Melania Trump failed horribly when it came time to recite the Pledge of Allegiance during a 9/11 ceremony commemorating the heroes of Flight 93, which crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania when the passengers attempted to retake the plane from the hijackers.
Trump mumbled through it and seemed to skip the words “under God” despite his pandering to evangelicals and whining about athletes supposedly disrespecting the flag while Melania didn’t even bother to recite it at all. Remember, it was also just last month when Trump attacked the Democratic National Convention over a couple of delegates not saying “under God”.
Here is the video and some thoughts from Twitter users:
BREAKING: Trump apparently refuses to say “under god,” during the Pledge of Allegiance. Remember the outrage by Republicans when a Democrat did this? pic.twitter.com/LaAYLHcicm

Why does Trump refuse to say “under God” during the Pledge of Allegiance? Wasn’t he rage tweeting about this 3 Sundays ago from the golf course? pic.twitter.com/RUhf48gXCI

From this tape, one gets the impression that Trump has forgotten half the words of the pledge of allegiance, and Melania never bothered to learn them https://t.co/LL1AKS4KAO

Trump said the pledge of allegiance but didn’t say “under god.”

At best, Trump got 3 words of the Pledge of Allegiance today. His speech later was weak & monotone. Watch his head & upper body against the backdrop. He’s writhing w/ involuntary movements from his degenerative neurological disease- Frontotemporal dementiapic.twitter.com/xsA0t3ooQ2

You mean trump tried to recite the Pledge Of Allegiance and failed, miserably. And omitted Under God- hear that evangelicals?!?
As for Melania- well, silence is golden… https://t.co/mMCOsdCHT1

Frankly, this flop pales in comparison to the fact that nearly 200,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus on Trump’s watch. That’s the equivalent of 66 9/11s, making Trump responsible for more American deaths than any terrorist group.
