President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump participated in a 9/11 remembrance ceremony at the Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Both White House occupants were “clearly,” as some noticed, unable to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

President Trump appeared to say some of the words but looked confused. The First Lady did not even attempt to recite the pledge.
Here’s what some are saying:
Trump doesn't seem to know the words to the Pledge of Allegiance https://t.co/LTQqccPuXC

And, FLOTUS doesn't say the pledge AT ALL. Unpatriotic and scandalous.

Him not seemingly knowing the words and FLOTUS not even bothering with them is pretty on brand for them. And they cannot even hide his uncontrollable twitching and swaying any longer.

Why are reporters afraid to ask trump to recite the pledge of allegiance when he clearly doesn't know it https://t.co/AGuNUHwQ3s

Telling you, this should be a debate question.
Mr. President, you have made kneeling during the anthem an issue. Can you recite the words to the anthem or the pledge of allegiance?

Mr. Stand for our flag doesn’t know the words to the pledge of allegiance pic.twitter.com/3dnDLTXa3X

And how come his birther wife doesn't recite either. Isn't she proud to be an American? If this was Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton, FOX News would run this clip 100x by lunch and Tucker would be asking if they were truly Americans if they don't recite some words.

The current occupants of the White House do not know the words to The Pledge of Allegiance of the United States – an expression of allegiance to the flag of the United States and the republic of the United States of America.
Trump & Melania are a disgrace in every way

Look at him, trying so hard to remember the words he doesn't believe in to begin with. He doesn't know the words to the National Anthem either, and I bet he couldn't recite the Lord's Prayer if his life depended on it.

How can we possibly have elected, and are considering re-electing a person who clearly has no idea how to recite the Pledge of Allegiance?

Stops at “under God.” If it were anyone else, the right would be in a tizzy by now. 🙄

Trump doesn’t know the words and the other Russian Asset refuses to say it at all.

I’m not an American but just a thought: Before someone becomes president they should be required to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. pic.twitter.com/VXfJHZBYIJ

Look at these two frauds. Neither one can stand and proudly recite the words to the Pledge of Allegiance. They don’t know the words because they don’t feel the words. Frauds.
