Three Former Presidents STAND REVERENTLY For National Anthem At Presidents Cup [VIDEO]

Former presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama all stood and put their hands over their hearts during the national anthem at the open of The Presidents Cup golf tournament Thursday.

The moment was the first public appearance for the group of former presidents after NFL players ignited controversy by kneeling or locking arms during the anthem. President Trump called on NFL owners to fire players who would not stand for the anthem.

Kneeling before the anthem started last season with former-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who claimed to be protesting police brutality.

WATCH:

 

As the Golf Channel announcer noted in the broadcast of the Presidents Cup, the national anthem is not usually played before golf matches.

“Everyone around obviously stopped for a moment to honor our country. The national anthem in sports has been in the news… It rarely gets played at golf events,” he said.

“The [U.S.] captain indicated that no protest of any kind would happen here,” the announcer said. “The players stopped their warm up routine, hats off, hands on heart, national anthem sung.”

    Thank God for all of the presidents that stood up for our country and our flag. Those over paid players need to realize just WHAT country they live in and we will NOT stand for the disrespect. Call it what you want – it IS disrespectful to our country & flag. If they want to protest, which is their American right, they need to do it another way and on their own time – NOT the fans. We don’t want to see that

    All three are the epitome of Corruption in our Government . Obama Liar and thief who single handily divided the nation tried to destroy Christianity and has over 90 documented crimes . GW Bush the skull and bones Yale Illuminati who started the war on terror sat idle in a kindergarten class knowing that 3000 Americans were going to die horrible deaths . Following in his corrupt family footsteps to take down America and the Middle east in the name of Israel and the NWO Then you have bill the serial rapist Clinton who sold us out with NAFTA while arming N. Korea with nuclear intelligence . What farce to watch them standing free when two should be executed for treason the other in Jail for multiple rapes …
