Trump calls National Anthem by wrong name


This came in my email today, from the Trump/Pence Campaign.


Just after we heard a sitting governor trash America, ESPN has now decided it will no longer play the National Anthem before Monday Night Football.

If “America” is too offensive for anyone in our country, then what are they doing in America?

I’m calling on you to join me in denouncing this SPINELESS surrender to the politically correct liberal mob.

The email was supposedly signed and sent by Donald Trump. A picture of him was even included.

For heavens’s sake, doesn’t ANYONE in the Trump circus know the national anthem is “The Star Spangled Banner“? Although perhaps a better choice, “America (the beautiful)” isn’t the anthem. It probably never will be, since the tune is the same as “God Save The Queen (King)“, and heaven forbid we have the same tune as the Brits. (although I’ve heard the tune for the Star Spangled Banner is that of an old drinking song from Great Britain, so maybe it’s not such a barrier, after all.)

Oh, and by the way, “President” Trump, the NFL didn’t start playing the anthem before games until the Pentagon paid them as part an advertising campaign. Their patriotism is bought and paid for.


You know that scene in Back to the Future 3, where the locomotive is flying off the uncompleted bridge over Shonash Ravine? That’s where the Trump train is right now. Trumpsters had a chance to get off back at the switch, but they insistently stayed on board, and now their tickets are about to be punched. All that’s left is to clean up the mess at the bottom of the ravine, once the fires are put out. It’s going to be a long and tedious job. Fortunately for the rest of us, Robert Mueller is going to be doing most of the heavy lifting, and the blue wave will put out most of the fires.

The second verse of The Star Spangle Banner seems prophetic to today’s darkness:

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
