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.”
