President Donald Trump has made it clear in the past that every NFL player should “stand proudly” for the national anthem or they shouldn’t be playing but it doesn’t seem like he’s following his own advice.
Well, I think that’s good. I don’t think people should be staying in locker rooms. But still, I think it’s good. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country,”
During his Super Bowl party at Mar-A-Lago, Trump was filmed goofing and acting like he was conducting a band while everyone around him stood still during the anthem.

During the national anthem at his own Super Bowl watch party Sunday night, a brief video posted to Instagram shows Trump greeting guests, adjusting his chair, and straightening his suit jacket as other attendees — including first lady Melania Trump and their teenage son — stand with their hands over their hearts. As “The Star Spangled Banner” crescendoes, Trump raises both of his hands in the air, and twirls them around as if conducting the music. The video was included in an Instagram story by a real estate agent for a Russian-American firm who frequents Mar-a-Lago and other Trump properties and events.

Of course Trump was called a hypocrite by several pundits on the Internet.
