CNN’s Poppy Harlow Abuses The Privilege Of Being Stupid

President Trump is in France at the behest of President Emmanuel Macron to celebrate Bastille Day. 
When I read the headline at The Daily Caller I could hardly believe what I saw.  I was subsequently stunned at the weapons-grade stupidity that followed in the embedded video on their website.
After arriving at Les Invalides, the site of Napoleon’s tomb, Macron guided President Trump through the archway where a French military band played a beautiful rendition of The Star Spangled Banner.
CNN anchor Poppy Harlow, a graduate of Columbia University, did not recognize her own country’s national anthem.
In the video Poppy, bless her heart, said “Let’s just listen in to the French national anthem for a moment.”
You can hear whispering in the background after several seconds go by in which a producer corrected her gaffe.  With a chuckle she added, “The US─American national anthem─I should say.  Let’s listen.”
Dayum.  How ignorant do you have to be to work at this laughingstock network?  The Star Spangled Banner had already begun playing.  How the hell does an American citizen not recognize their own national anthem?  President Trump had placed his hand over his heart while Macron stood with his hands by his side.  That should have been her first clue.
