VIDEO: CNN Anchor Doesn’t Recognize the Star-Spangled Banner

CNN Anchor Poppy Harlow had trouble recognizing the Star-Spangled Banner this week. The moment, which aired on live TV, is the latest misstep in a series of embarrassing setbacks for the network.

Harlow was covering President Trump’s arrival in Paris, France to meet with French president Emmanuel Macron. After the two world leaders shook hands, they stood together as a band played the United States national anthem.

However, Harlow cut to the scene by saying, “Let’s just listen in to the French national anthem for just a moment.”

Harlow eventually realized her mistake — but it was too late.

Watch the moment in the video below:
