Refs Are Getting Crushed For Controversial Call During Army-Navy Game

Saturday's Army-Navy game was abruptly halted for about eight minutes in the fourth quarter as officials painfully struggled to figure out whether the Black Knights actually got a first down on fourth-and-two on Navy's 43-yard line.

Joseph Dunford, who now serves as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as well as the man picked by Trump to succeed him, current US Army chief of staff Gen. Mark Milley, were also present. The victor takes home the "Commander in Chief" trophy.

As Hawaii and Alaska had not yet been added as states at the time of World War I, the back of the Army players' helmets don a WW1-era flag with just 48 stars.

As per tradition, he's expected to split his time between the Army and Navy side of the stadium, and meet both teams before returning to the White House. The president was expected to soon name a replacement, and a White House official said Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, was Trump's top choice.

It was the president's first visit to the game as commander-in-chief, though he had visited as president-elect in 2016 and made an appearance on CBS Sports. President Theodore Roosevelt was the first, in 1901.

The Navy Midshipmen are set to face off against the Army Black Knights at 3:00 P.M on Saturday.

The series began in 1890, and Navy leads 60-51-7. Trump also announced that State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert is his pick to replace Nikki Haley as the next US ambassador to the United Nations. James Risch, R-Idaho, and Sen.
