[WATCH] Mike Flynn Doesn’t Know the Pledge of Allegiance, But Another Member of His Family Does
Disgraced former general Mike Flynn was the only member of the Trump administration to be charged as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Flynn, who openly pushes QAnon conspiracy theories, had to register as a foreign agent and pleaded guilty–twice–for lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador. Flynn then cooperated extensively with prosecutors, but he ultimately reversed course and accused the government of trying to frame him.
Now pardoned by the former guy, Flynn remains a hero to the MAGA faithful who still believe he was framed because he says so. Flynn has repeatedly shown his loyalty to Russia over America, so maybe that’s why he had a bit of trouble when it came to reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in front of an unmasked crowd.
Flynn was attending a “Bikers For Trump” rally in South Carolina and was called up to the stage to lead the Pledge by fellow QAnon Qrazy Lin Wood. Flynn dramatically barked at the crowd, waxing rhapsodic about what the Pledge of Allegiance means, and how important the words are. Flynn demanded the crowds remove their hats and recite every important word of the Pledge of Allegiance.
And then this happened.
It’s not all that surprising that a foreign agent who openly preferred Putin to Obama has been too busy taking the “QAnon pledge” forgot all of the words to the real one.

It doesn’t surprise me a bit that Mike Flynn doesn’t know the words to the pledge of allegiance. These GQP are performative clowns who actually hate America and want to see it destroyed.

This is better than any parody. (Also, does a roomful of people reciting a pledge under a big looming emblem of 45 freak anyone else out?) https://t.co/SmxChid1IE

The irony is, all Mike Flynn had to do was ask his own grandson to help him out with a little reminder before he took the stage.
