A video has gone viral across social media Monday afternoon showing the First Lady nudging president Trump to remind him to place his hand over his heart during the National Anthem.
In the video, attached below, the “situation” occurs during the White House Easter Egg Roll. On a balcony, we see Barron Trump and the First Lady place their hand over their hearts just as the Marine Band begins to play the National Anthem.
Noticeably, Trump did not have his hand over his heart until Melania nudged him seconds later. People have been ruthless to Trump for this.

Many people have either come to Trump’s defense or joined the critics in arguing that this shows how unpatriotic he is.
It is highly possible that the president was simply enjoying the festivities, pageantry, and when the National Anthem began, he was simply enjoying it all.
Trump deserves criticism for many things, but this is definitely not one of them. It’s a shame that things like this go viral to millions of people rather than many other things that are actually meaningful.
