While the president appeared to recite some of the words in the Pledge of Allegiance, the First Lady did not even attempt to verbally recite the pledge.
Some observers also noticed Trump did not appear to recite the “under God” line in the pledge.
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.

What's especially striking is that the line Trump seems to have the most trouble remembering is "under God."pic.twitter.com/fAKVoCQXPZ

After weeks of lying about Democrats cutting the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, Trump omits the words "under God" when saying the Pledge. pic.twitter.com/bS0ov2iBVQ

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
