New video has emerged showing Donald Trump standing and fidgeting and acting very bizarrely at his Super Bowl watch party on Sunday night during the singing of the national anthem. The Miami Herald reports that the video was posted to the Instagram account of “a real estate agent for a Russian-American firm who frequents Mar-a-Lago and other Trump properties and events.”
In the video, you can see a sea of white faces, people standing in some kind of dining room, while a woman sings “The Star Spangled Banner.” Trump bounces about, lifts his hand as if he’s conducting, points repeatedly at someone across the way. It is hard to tell if Trump’s pointing to someone off camera is some kind of admonition or simply him acknowledging someone. Melania Trump stands by with the awkward smile she wears for everything her husband does.
Trump’s attacks on former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling in protest during the playing of the national anthem before sporting events were relentless. The fact that he so clearly does not care or have any real convictions outside of himself, that every single person not named Donald Trump mean less than nothing to him, is what is terrifying about his absurd level of power in our country’s government.
