Late Night Host Jimmy Kimmel mocked Michael Flynn for an embarrassing moment over the weekend.
Flynn, who briefly served in 2017 as a national security advisor to then-US President Donald Trump and ultimately pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about its contacts with Russia, struggled with a pledge of loyalty at Sunday’s event.
He began “pledge allegiance to me,” adding an additional word. To the flag of the United States of America.
Then he uttered a word that sounded like “individual” but could have been “indivisible,” a word that comes much later in the pledge, before surrendering and allowing the public to take on the task to the end:
“Only the best of people,” Kimmel mocked after playing the clip. “I bet he knows the Russian pledge.”
Flynn eventually withdrew his guilt and was pardoned by Trump last year.
