People On Social Media Unloaded On GOP Senator After He Seemed To Momentarily Forget What To Do With His Hands During The Pledge Of Allegiance

Really, dude?

If there’s anything that right-wing nutcases love to pride themselves on, it’s their deep-seated “patriotism.” Literally, these people mold their entire personalities around the United States of America, God, guns, and Donald J. Trump. Chances are, they wouldn’t even know their favorite color if you asked them at this point.

However, it seems that many of them become so obsessed with appearing patriotic that they often forget to actually, well, be patriotic.

Allow me to present to you Republican Florida Senator Rick Scott.


Scott is as right-winged, red, white, and blue-blooded as they come — anti-abortion, anti-immigrant, conspiracy theorist, you name it.

Yet, when it came time for the GOP senator to do something as patriotic and downright simple as reciting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance during this afternoon’s Dallas, Texas, Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the guy seemed to quickly fall flat.

Scott, who’s reportedly been trying to convince the former guy to tone things down lately in an attempt to garner some GOP support outside of the Trump base, recently took the position of the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee and addressed the CPAC crowd as such ahead of ex-president Donald Trump’s big upcoming speech this afternoon.

Scott was even one of the few Republicans to dare to criticize Donald Trump in the wake of the January 6th Capitol riot. But, as we’re all aware, it didn’t take long after that fateful January day for the GOP to ultimately set their sites back on Donald Trump as the face of the GOP.

With all that being said, Scott seemingly struggled to garner any admiration from the Trump-loving crowd during his CPAC appearance this afternoon, only to turn around and appear to struggle with figuring out what to do with his hands during the Pledge of Allegiance.

Spoiler alert… It goes on your chest, dude.

Twitter, of course, was all of that little blunder:

Give it up, dude.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
