Late night host Jimmy Kimmel mocked Michael Flynn for an awkward moment over the weekend.
Flynn, who in 2017 briefly served as national security adviser to then-President Donald Trump and ultimately pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia, struggled with the pledge of allegiance during of a Sunday event.
“I swear allegiance,” he began, inserting an additional word. “To the flag of the United States of America.”
Then he said a word that sounded like ‘individual’ but could have been ‘indivisible’, a word that comes much later in the engagement, before giving up and letting the audience take over until the end. :
“Only the best people,” Kimmel scoffed after playing the clip. “I bet he knows the Russian Pledge of Allegiance.”
Flynn eventually withdrew his guilty plea and was pardoned by Trump last year.
For more on Flynn, Trump and Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who had his own issues at a live event this weekend, in Kimmel’s Monday Night Monologue:
