Obama’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson probably should have paid more attention in grade school. He just admitted during a speech to the Professional Services Council in Arlington, Virginia that he recently forgot the Pledge while visiting a school in Queens, New York…
Johnson revealed that his snafu occurred while he was General Counsel of the Air Force and was asked to participate in a ‘Principal for a Day’ program at an elementary school in Queens, N.Y.
“We said the pledge of allegiance here. I know the pledge of allegiance, like everybody here does,” Johnson said. “There’s a period where I actually forgot the pledge of allegiance, I hesitate to say this.”
Johnson said that as part of the ‘Principal for a Day’ program, he was prompted to lead the students of P.S. 143 in the pledge of allegiance during the school’s morning announcements.
“It had been, I don’t know how long, since I said the pledge of allegiance,” Johnson admitted. “I’m a trial lawyer, I’m not usually at a loss for words. But I now know how to say the pledge of allegiance.”
