CNN anchor confuses American, French national anthems

At CNN, the hits just keep on coming!

The same network that routinely ridicules political leaders it dislikes for alleged gaffes is itself red-faced today after an embarrassing on-air blunder.

During live coverage of President Trump’s visit to France this morning, anchor Poppy Harlow believed she was hearing the French national anthem, La Marseillaise, offering viewers a chance to listen.

Unfortunately, the band was actually playing The Star-Spangled Banner, otherwise known as American’s anthem. Worse, it took almost 15 seconds for her to realize the mistake, after a producer likely spoke into her earpiece.

She then attempted to correct herself, saying “The US – American national anthem, I should say, let’s listen.”
