  • Trump and the National Anthem Here We Go Again

President Trump sang the National Anthem Monday night before the college football championship game - but mouthed only a few of the song's lyrics, sparking critics on Twitter to accuse him of not knowing the words. Others pointed out how the president had railed against football players failing to respect the national anthem.

Mr Trump remembered to put his hand over his heart but seemed to forget the lyrics before making a fumbling recovery. President Trump's mental state has already been called into question, and the bad lip sync has been identified by some as proof that the president's mental health is deteriorating. President Donald Trump was in attendance at the national championship game, and some claim that footage of him during the Anthem proves that he does not know all of the words to "The Star-Spangled Banner".

The post Did President Donald Trump Forgets The American National Anthem? appeared first on Nigerian Entertainment Today - Nigeria's Top Website for News, Gossip, Comedy, Videos, Blogs, Events, Weddings, Nollywood, Celebs, Scoop and Games.

The majority of Americans - 61 percent - do not know all the words to the "The Star-Spangled Banner", according to a Harris Interactive survey.

Most of the players from Georgia and Alabama remained in their locker rooms during the anthem - though Alabama star running back Bo Scarbrough was caught on audio yelling "F-k Trump" in the tunnel at the Atlanta stadium before taking the field.

"There is plenty of space for people to express views and to protest", he said.

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

What has Mr Trump said about the anthem? Earlier this year, Trump was accused of stoking a culture war by loudly criticizing Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players for kneeling during the National Anthem as a form of peaceful protest against racism. BBC News journalist Anthony Zurcher pointed out on Twitter that it can be hard to hear the anthem on the field, and singing along isn't always easy.
