We all knew that the mainstream media will not report about the standing ovations that the President received.
They found something else to whine about.
After huge pressure from the mainstream media the Army and Navy academies said that they are looking into hand signs flashed by students that can be associated with “white power” and were televised during the Army-Navy football game on Saturday, school officials said.
Cadets at West Point and midshipmen at the Naval Academy in the stands both appeared to display the sign during the broadcast, officials with the two military academies told The Wall Street Journal. The gesture was seen during an ESPN broadcast segment.
School officials are trying to determine what the hand signals were meant to convey, they said.
Below you watch the video and judge for yourself.

“We’re looking into it,” Lt. Col. Chris Ophardt, a spokesperson for the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in New York, told the Journal. “I don’t know what their intention is.”
“We are aware and will be looking into it,” said Cmdr. Alana Garas, a spokesperson for the U.S. Naval Academy, in Annapolis, Maryland.
This is just another witch hunt by the left this is just a simple game called the circle game and lately, there is a huge number of memes with this exact topic.
The Circle Game is a game of peripheral vision, trickery and motor skills. The game starts out when the Offensive Player creates a circle with their thumb and forefinger somewhere below his waist. The goal is to trick another person into looking at his hand. If the victim looks at the hand, he has lost the game, and is subsequently hit on the bicep with a closed fist, by the offensive player. Online, people have begun hiding hands making the circle symbols in various images to trick people into finding it.
According to Vice, the Circle Game was invented by Ohio resident Matt Nelson in the early 1980s. Nelson claims to have devised the game while in elementary school as a way to punch his friends.
The game was popularized on November 15th, 2000 in the fourth episode of the television sitcom Malcom in the Middle’s second season. In the episode, characters play the Circle Game, introducing to the show’s millions of viewers.
While the game has been a staple of schoolyard games since the early 80s, it started appearing online in the 2010s. One of the earliest examples of the game online was posted on June 23rd, 2011 by an anonymous 9GAG user who posted a picture of a little girl with her hand in the circle formation with a circle around the hand. The post (shown below) received more than 980 points in six years.
Over the next half decade, the game continued to be referenced in memes, featuring a host of characters. On November 16th, 2014, the Facebook [ account LADbible posted the hand information with the comment “Oi mate, is this yours?” The post (shown below, left) received more than 142,000 reactions, 353,000 comments and 32,000 shares in three years.
Two years later, on December 23rd, 2016, Redditor tomytronics posted a version featuring Star Wars’ Darth Vader, using a scene from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
The hand sign is similar to the one often used to indicate “OK,” but the Anti-Defamation League says it has lately been used as an extremist meme, in part because of its ambiguity.
