Did President Donald Trump Forgets The American National Anthem?

Did President Donald Trump Forgets The American National Anthem?

College football fans were glued to their televisions Monday night (Jan. 8) as the Alabama Crimson Tide faced off against the Georgia Bulldogs in this year's heated NCAA National Championship game.

He said: "The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem".

Twitterati was quick to notice this and had a field day commenting on how Trump may have forgotten the words to the national anthem.

Some say he appears to have gotten part of the anthem wrong too. Our Wonderful President Trump standing along the Color Guard, hand on his heart, singing our National Anthem at the College Championship game. 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.

"It looked like Donald Trump just kept repeating "applesauce" during the National Anthem", quipped another user.

Video of the performance shows Trump mouthing some of the words, but he also appeared to have botched some of the lyrics.

The president has been extremely vocal in urging respect for the USA national anthem.

During one of his speeches, Trump even called a football player who refused to stand at attention during the performance of the United States national anthem "son of a bitch".

Mr Trump has also strongly criticised National Football League stars kneeling during the anthem in protest against perceived racial injustice.

Later, Trump took to Twitter praising Pence for leaving the game.

Aravosis said: "This is priceless, as only 3 hours after he tweeted this Trump tried to sing the National Anthem and forgot the words". 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.
