Does President Trump Not Even Know The Words To The National Anthem?

  • Donald Trump appears to forget the words to the national anthem

But when he took the field before a college football national championship game in Atlanta on Monday, January 8, some people were quick to accuse him of forgetting the lyrics.

The national anthem became a burning issue of the U.S. politics in September after Trump's severe criticism of NFL players kneeling during the song as a way to protest against violence towards black Americans.

He added to applause: "We want our national anthem respected, too".

A third pointed out: "America, your President - doesn't know all the words to your national anthem".

"You would think that a man who ran on a platform of pure patriotism and who spent months lecturing athletes about respecting the national anthem, would, at the very least, know the words to the anthem", Meyers began.

But tweeters also wondered whether Trump's botched Anthem singalong was more a sign of forgetfulness and early dementia.

Trump, who has made a respectful observation of the national anthem at sporting events a fiercely divisive political issue, stood at midfield and sang some of the "Star-Spangled Banner," while remaining silent at other times.

But supporters praised the president for taking the field, hand on heart.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he's fired?'" Trump said in August.

Not surprisingly, it comes from his oldest son, Donald Trump Jr.

The Anthem was performed by the Zac Brown Band at Monday night's game.

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