President Trump recites the Pledge of Allegiance at this morning's 9/11 commemoration in Shanksville, PA. pic.twitter.com/KZPWjai9ye— The Recount (@therecount) September 11, 2020
I wouldn't characterize this as reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. It looks more like Trump's lips moving a bit to fake it, while Melania didn't even make an effort.
The fact is, I couldn't care less if someone recites the pledge or not, but I'm imagining how Trump supporters would have reacted if Obama appeared not to know the words to the pledge while Michele stood by, not even making an effort to fake it. Trumper types would have lost their minds.
