Trump Appears To Forget The Words To The National Anthem

Donald Trump was booed by fans as he attended a college football game between the University of Alabama and the University of Georgia.

Social media commented that it appeared the president doesn't know the words to the song - which is especially peculiar because of his repeated stance that the country's flag and anthem must be respected at football games.

Some say he appears to have gotten part of the anthem wrong too. As the Zac Brown Band performed, Trump attempted to sing along. As Americans commemorate King's birthday next week, the president will again be called upon to hear out those citizens who support using the First Amendment to protest racial injustice - including on the football field. Whereas people against Trump were critical of him not singing along fully.

What is the United States president expected to do? As the anthem went on, he gradually began taking longer pauses and moving his mouth less, which quickly caught the attention of many Twitter users. Either way, a lot of people are harshly criticizing the President in light of recent comments he made by calling on National Football League owners to suspend players who disrespect the flag by kneeling during the anthem.

"As a military veteran who has watched Trump, a coward who never served and received five draft deferments, slam Colin Kaepernick as unpatriotic for peacefully protesting, I am beyond livid that he doesn't know the words to the National Anthem", tweeted Charlotte Clymer, a former aide to Hillary Clinton.

Trump had been speaking just hours before at the Farming Bureau and tweeted: "We are fighting for our farmers, for our country, and for our GREAT AMERICAN FLAG".

Trump to Twitter on January 6 to respond to the book. I don't think I do, but if a few stray punchlines subconsciously cross my lips, it doesn't mean that I don't know the rest of it, too.
