PATHETIC: CNN Anchor Doesn’t Recognize US National Anthem

CNN anchor Poppy Harlow seemingly didn’t recognize the US national anthem on Thursday, confusing the Star-Spangled Banner for the French national anthem while reporting on President Trump’s ceremonial arrival in Paris.

President Trump is in France for a whirlwind visit to mark the nation’s Bastille Day celebrations and commemorate the 100th anniversary of the United States entry in to the first World War.

As French President Emmanuel Macron welcomed President Trump and First Lady Melania to Paris, the French honor band began to play the American national anthem. Harlow was commenting on possible cooperation between the United States and France in the fight against ISIS, when she took a break to let viewers hear the music.

“Let’s just listen in to the French national anthem for just a moment,” said the CNN host.

It took Harlow almost ten full seconds to recognize her mistake; the band was not playing the French anthem, Le Marseillaise, but in fact the Star-Spangled Banner.

“The US, American National anthem I should say, let’s listen,” said the anchor, chuckling off camera.
