Did President Donald Trump Forgets The American National Anthem?

Donald Trump appears to forget the words to the national anthem

After video footage of President Donald Trump singing the national anthem at the College Football Playoff national championship game in Atlanta went viral, late night hosts mocked the President for his apparent lack of knowledge about the actual lyrics to the song.

Before heading to the college national football championship on Monday, President Trump reiterated his views on athletes using the national anthem to protest racial discrimination and police violence in America.

The president mouthed along to the first few lines of the national anthem with no issues.

Following the national anthem, Alabama running back Bo Scarborough, who clearly wasn't happy with Trump (figuratively) kicking off the game, was heard yelling an anti-Trump slur before taking the field. He seemed more excited to sing along near the end of the song. His ranting eventually backfired on him when cameras caught him struggling to sing many words to that same National Anthem that he coveted so much at last night's game.

Before he arrived in Atlanta, he sharpened his criticism of athletes who refuse to stand during the national anthem, telling attendees at an agriculture meeting in Tennessee that "we love our flag and we love our anthem and we want to keep it that way".

Flank by members of the military, Trump, with his right hand over his heart, appeared to mumble his way through the anthem, at times clearly mouthing other words that weren't in the Star Spangled Banner.

The president was reportedly greeted with a mixture of cheers and boos while taking the field.

President Trump made an on-field appearance prior to kickoff.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump has singled out ex-NFL quarterback Kaepernick for launching the trend previous year, and called other pro ballers SOBs who should be fired for participating in the silent protests.
