It was an honest mistake. It could have happened to anybody. CNN’s Poppy Harlow was talking over the beginning of the national anthem. She was so enthralled with the sound of her own voice and the pure gold that was coming out of her mouth, she assumed the band was playing the French national anthem.
But it wasn’t.
They were playing the “Star Spangled Banner” not “La Marseillaise”!
She missed a few hints like President Trump with his hand placed over his heart, and French President Macron just standing there. Not to mention a melody that any first grade student in America could instantly recognize!
Look, Harlow is a young woman. She’s only 35. We can’t blame senility.
It’s not like she’s Democrat Moonbat Nancy Pelosi, or Mad Maxine Waters. They’ve got excuses for not knowing the Earth orbits around the sun. But there’s no excuse for Harlow not recognizing the Star Spangled Banner!
Somebody whispered into her earpiece that it was the American national anthem, not the French.
According to a report by Fox News, Poppy attended Minneapolis’ exclusive Blake School and the prestigious Columbia University. Her childhood wasn’t spent in a cave in north eastern Afghanistan!
In her defense, Poppy recognizes the song “Happy Birthday” only 4 out of 10 times!
Young Conservatives reports:
CNN anchor Poppy Harlow mistook the “Star Spangled Banner”for the French national anthem when President Donald Trump met with French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday.
Harlow was covering the arrival of Trump in Paris, the Daily Caller reported. After Trump and Macron shook hands, they listened to a band play the United States national anthem.
She directed people to listen for a moment to the “French National Anthem” as the unmistakable American National Anthem played.
