Trump rips the NFL for disrespecting the flag. Then he jokes about a military flag ceremony.

After he had repeatedly railed against professional athletes over perceived slights to the American flag and military, President Trump joked on Wednesday about a bugle call that is part of the armed forces’ time-honored tradition of showing respect for the Stars and Stripes.

The bugle call was “To The Color,” which signifies the raising or lowering of the American flag on a military installation.
