Ahead of the most difficult activity in college football on Monday night, President Donald Trump tweeted to require respect for the national psalm. A few hours later, he appeared to forget how to sing it.
Trump’s tweet included a video of himself speaking in defense of farmers, the American flag, and “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
“We require our pennant respected- and we want our NATIONAL ANTHEM respected also! ” Trump wrote , no doubt be submitted to athletes’ national anthem protests against police savagery.
We are fighting for our farmers, for home countries, and for our Enormous AMERICAN FLAG. We want our signal respected- and we want our NATIONAL ANTHEM respected likewise! pic.twitter.com/ 16 eOLXg6Fi

Just hours after tweeting, Trump demo up at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for the national championship activity between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama.
Not only was he booed on the way in, but Trump likewise appeared to botch the lyrics to the national hymn. He hardly moved his mouth to the second course of the anthem.( It starts like this:” What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming .”)

Trump didn’t appear to know many of the words to the anthem at all. At some points, he stopped even pretending to sing.

People on Twitter point out here that the incongruity of Trump forgetting the words to the national chant after so adamantly requiring respect for it.
he kinda made a big deal out of honoring “the member states national” hymn tho, and he doesn’t bother to read it?

Writer and Black Lives Matter organizer Shaun King called Trump not knowing the national chant a “disgrace.”
The man CLEARLY does not know the words to the National Anthem. This is indisputable.
All of that hate he has spewed toward Black folk about taking a knee and “the mens” doesn’t know the words.
A disgrace. https :// t.co/ JrwPXRXSoY
