The president who harped on the anthem fumbled it

Trump struggled to keep up with the rest of the crowd, and critics have charged that the President displayed a lack of knowledge of the anthem's lyrics.

Pool reporters traveling with the president said he mouthed what appeared to be some of the words to "The Star-Spangled Banner", but they could not tell exactly what he was saying or singing. "And yet, Trump seemed lost as he tried to sing along to the anthem before last night's national college football championship".

The game, won by Alabama in overtime, featured a number of future NFL players - a group of people that Trump has clashed with over kneeling protests during the 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. As Americans commemorate King's birthday next week, the president will again be called upon to hear out those citizens who support using the First Amendment to protest racial injustice - including on the football field.


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. 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.

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

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