Donald Trump seemed to forget the words to the U.S. national anthem

Monday night was the college football national championship game between Georgia and Alabama, the Bulldogs versus the Crimson Tide, and Donald Trump for some reason decided that he needed to be at this football game.

"We love our flag and we love our anthem and we want to keep it that way", Donald Trump said at the annual gathering of the American Farm Bureau Federation on January 8 again criticising protesters at football matches opposing police brutality.

Some say he appears to have gotten part of the anthem wrong too. But then "The Star-Spangled Banner", the U.S. national anthem, began to play and everyone stood up to put their hands on their chests and sing the lyrics proudly, and it looked very much as through the President could not remember all the lyrics of the song.

Washington Post's Josh Dawsey tweeted that Trump was "both cheered and booed as he strode to midfield for the national anthem". After a while, however, he appeared to lose track of the words, and began singing random words, with no concept of the song's tune.

"Trump's been trying to get football players fired for kneeling during the National Anthem and this man can't even mumble it on national television right", wrote another.

"We want our flag respected", he said earlier in the day during a speech in Nashville, Tennessee, "and we want our national anthem respected also". Whereas people against Trump were critical of him not singing along fully.

US President Donald Trump received a mixed reception from football fans in America's conservative south on Monday, a partial rebuke on his political home turf. A few days ago, Twitter went into a meltdown when Trump was seen sip water from a glass using both his hands like a child.

Before this, he had tweeted about how he was "a very stable genius" and "very smart".
