Pretty much everything President Donald Trump does these days sparks some big reactions, and this includes the coin toss ahead of the Army-Navy game Saturday.
The pageantry that kicked off the 119th iteration of this amazing game was as brilliant as ever before.
The pageantry. The flyover.

When it came time for President Trump to flip the coin, he did it with flair.

The toss came up “tails.” Navy deferred, which gave Army the ball first. However, it’s unclear if the coin actually rotated, and many were amused that he literally seemed to toss the coin, rather than flip it as is customary.
Trump might be the first person to actually “toss” the coin in a coin toss lol
