Comment: Note the contradiction in these 2 paragraphs from SNOPES.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Although the custom is sometimes more honored in the breach than in the
observance, the U.S. Flag Code states that:
During a rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all
present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag
with the right hand over the heart.

(It's also not clear from the photograph or the video just what the
candidates are looking at. The Flag Code advises that they should be
"standing at attention facing the flag,"..................)
