Watch As Trump Appears to Flick Melania’s Hand Away While Both Trumps Forget to Put Their Hands on Their Hearts For Anthem
Donald Trump was greeted with cheers as he entered the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, alongside first lady Melania Trump where the NCAA College Football Playoff National Championship game is currently underway.
But it seems like something else was going on as well.
Washington Post White House reporter Josh Dawsey added that some boos could be heard in the crowd ahead of the game when Trump walked across the field before standing at attention during the national anthem, but the crowd mostly cheered for the president.
Donald and Melania Trump crossed over the field to the approval of many in the crowd roaring cheers including, “USA, USA” and “Four More Years” loudly.

But what eagle-eyed watchers on Twitter also found was a moment during the National Anthem where Trump appears to flick Melania’s hand away.
Also, note that neither Trump put their hand over their hearts for the Anthem.
Looks like someone is a little stressed out about IMPEACHMENT this evening. Here's Trump flicking away the hand of Melania. What a cute couple… If you think "angry dictator" is cute.pic.twitter.com/x6e3XnKRgG

Twitter had a field day:
Then he does that flicking of the lapels on his jacket, which is a tell for "I'm uncomfortable and feel weakened, but when I adjust my jacket like this, it makes me feel alpha." Watch him, he does this often when he feels beta to whomever he's standing near.

You notice the way her breathing changed when he flicked the hand away – a sign of extreme anger -no love between those two. They deserve each other.

One is always flickin' the other. They hate each other.

And they don’t put their hands on their hearts because they don’t have any. #Heartless

He has that bully attitude go in’ on, acting like he’s the big untouchable man. He is vile and disgusting. What a horrid, horrid person. Someone needs to put him in his place, and fast. He has done enough harm.
