Trump Appears To Forget The Words To The National Anthem

11 January, 2018, 09:08 | Author: Constance French
  • Does Donald Trump Really Not Know the Words to the National Anthem?

"And yet, Trump seemed lost as he tried to sing along to the anthem before last night's national college football championship".

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

Some say he appears to have gotten part of the anthem wrong too.

Twitter also noted another ironic moment as Kendrick Lamar, who has been outspoken against Trump, took the stage to perform for the first ever halftime show at the national championship.

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

Previous surveys have found that many American's don't know the full lyrics to the USA anthem, but for the U.S. president, a man who has attacked footballers for their actions during the anthem, his inability to sing the lyrics proved unpopular online.

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

Even if the President doesn't know every word to the National Anthem, it shouldn't actually be a huge deal - a song recitation shouldn't be a prerequisite for the presidency.

Yet singing the national anthem only takes a minute and could be said to be expected of him at national college football games.

"It looked like Donald Trump just kept repeating "applesauce" during the National Anthem", one Twitter user wrote.

"The president mouthed what appeared to be some of the words of the National Anthem and didn't mouth others".

Before travelling to Atlanta from Tennessee on Monday afternoon, Trump tweeted, "We want our flag respected - and we want our NATIONAL ANTHEM respected also".

Many observers were unimpressed, pointing out that Trump had adopted a position as guardian of the anthem.
