Trump Mocked for Forgetting Lyrics to National Anthem

  • Trump and the National Anthem Here We Go Again

Unlike the NFL, the college football players were not on the field when the national anthem was played.

Trump is believed to have left the game after the first half, thereby missing the half-time entertainment from rapper Kendrick Lamar, who is no fan of the president.

On Monday, he tweeted: "We want our flag respected - and we want our NATIONAL ANTHEM respected also!".

Another user named, X pointed out how Trump has been at loggerheads with the National Football League (NFL) about not respecting the anthem but has failed to mumble the anthem on his own.

"The president mouthed what appeared to be some of the words of the National Anthem and didn't mouth others". 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. For the majority of Brown's tidy, minute-plus performance, Trump wore the grim, determined expression of a man trying to remember the items on McDonald's Dollar Menu in front of him.




The code adds that military personnel and veterans should salute throughout the anthem.

However, what caught the world's attention was how the president miserably failed at singing the National Anthem. At the end of the speech, Trump's slur was evident as he said: "God bless the United Shhtates".

And, again, I know a lot of people probably don't know the words to the national anthem and that's really not what's at stake here, or the issue.

Barack Obama has done both, and said in 2016 that "respecting and honouring our flag and our anthem is part of what binds us together as a nation". He made it all football season long his crusade to tell us that anybody who did not stand up and respect the national anthem was a disgrace to this country and they should be fired. He has even changed the banner image on his Twitter account to a photograph of him standing during the anthem before the game.
