General Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor to President Trump, seemed to forget the words of the Pledge of Allegiance during a pro-Trump rally in South Carolina on Sunday.
A clip of the oblivious Flynn showed how the retired US Army Lieutenant General got off to a strong enough start as he instructed people to take off their hats before taking the 31-word oath of allegiance.
Flynn built the moment when he encouraged all in attendance to participate: “I want you to hear, not just listen – Elke. Single. Word, ”he said.

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America …” Flynn began, then suddenly fell silent.
The crowd helped him as they continued to recite the rest of the vow in unison.
Flynn rejoined the Bikers for Trump group when they reached the final cadence.
“… under God, indivisible, with freedom and justice for all,” agreed Flynn.

Attendees at the event held at the Honky Tonk saloon didn’t seem to notice Flynn’s flub and applauded afterwards, but Twitter wasn’t that forgiving.
Mike Flynn completely omitted ‘And to the Republic it stands for’. Freudian slip? Perhaps. Because he is not loyal to OUR Republic. Only for Trumpism, ” wrote one Twitter user.
‘He hasn’t forgotten. He has skipped the ‘to the Republic’ section because he wants to replace our constitution with an authoritarian dictatorship, ‘another user added.
He could not utter the words ‘to the Republic’. That is quite telling. His allegiance is to the (Russian) Federation, ” wrote another on social media.

Another Twitter user expressed surprise at having to take the pledge in school from kindergarten through 12th grade.
The only excuse would be dementia or Alzheimer’s, except it baffles every child of his generation, the promise said every day. We have said it thousands of times.
President Trump forgave Flynn last Thanksgiving. Flynn’s conviction for lying to the FBI during the investigation into Russia was wiped out after the presidential pardon.
In 2017, Trump fired Flynn after just weeks in the job after it was revealed that he had not disclosed his contacts with the former Russian ambassador to the US to Vice President Mike Pence.
