President Trump Is Mocked for Forgetting the Words to the National Anthem


President Donald Trump got himself in trouble again as his knowledge of the national anthem is being questioned by critics after Trump sang some — but not all — of “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the opening ceremony at the College Football Playoff National Championship game in Atlanta on Monday.


Writer Tony Posnanski tweeted that Trump appeared to just keep “repeating ‘applesauce’ during the National Anthem.”

Another Twitter user wrote, “Trump spent months railing against black NFL players peacefully demonstrating during our national anthem, only for it to be shown that he doesn’t even know the words to our national anthem… that really just ties it all up neatly with bow, doesn’t it?”

Hours before the game, Trump again slammed athletes who choose to kneel during the national anthem. “There’s plenty of space for people to express their views and to protest, but we love our flag and we love our anthem and we want to keep it that way,” he said in a speech to the nation’s farmers in Nashville.
