Melania Trump nudged the President for being unpatriotic. Naturally, it went viral.

We’ve all seen it the movies. Every time the US anthem plays, Americans loyally place their right hand across their heart in a patriotic salute.

Yet over the weekend, it the seems the most important American kind of, sort of… forgot.

While President Trump’s awkward little brain fart might in itself be noteworthy (read: ‘outrageous’) to some folks, it’s the subsequent nudge he copped from his wife that’s really got people talking.

The whole thing went down at the Easter Egg Roll, an annual event hosted on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington D.C.

As the first strains of Star Bangled Banner began to play, the First Lady’s hand sprung to cover her heart. Her 11-year-old son Barron’s did the same.

The President’s did not.

Cue the stealthy little prod currently being proclaimed “The best nudge ever”.


The clip has since been bounced around the internet at viral speeds, and found favour with Twitter users everywhere.

With his wife’s lightening reflexes and all these headlines, we’re willing to bet the President won’t be caught napping again any time soon.
