President Trump is being accused of hypocrisy after video has surfaced showing him acting childish during the national anthem from Sunday's Super Bowl.

A brief video that originated on Instagram and was taken during Trump's Super Bowl party at Mar-A-Lago shows Trump pointing at people and twirling his hands in the air as if conducting an imaginary orchestra during Demo Lovato's rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner."


While it's not surprising to see the president behaving childishly in a room full of adults who are standing still with their hands over their hearts, it's a bit surprising given the president's vocal stance on showing "respect" for the national anthem.

Last year, on "Fox & Friends" Trump said that showing disrespect during the anthem was "maybe" a deportable offense. "You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there. Maybe you shouldn't be in the country," Trump said.

So, do you think the present's behavior is appropriate?

Conservative radio host Dennis Prager defended his use of the word "ki*e," on his show Thursday by insisting that people should be able to use the word ni**er as well.

It all started when a caller asked why he felt comfortable using the term "ki*e" while discussing bigotry while using the term "N-word" when referring to a slur against African-Americans.

Prager used the discussion to make the point that people are allowed to use anti-Jewish slurs but cannot use the N-word because "the Left" controls American culture.
