Does President Trump Not Even Know The Words To The National Anthem?

Does President Trump Not Even Know The Words To The National Anthem?

Donald Trump took the field for the national anthem performance by the Zac Brown Band ahead of Monday night's College Football Playoff National Championship Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

On Monday, Trump showed up to the National Title Game in Atlanta and made his way to the field for the Star-Spangled Banner.

"As a military veteran who has watched Trump, a coward who never served and received five draft deferments, slam Colin Kaepernick as unpatriotic for peacefully protesting, I am beyond livid that he doesn't know the words to the National Anthem", tweeted Charlotte Clymer, a former aide to Hillary Clinton. "He didn't open mouth during other parts".

Several Twitter users believed the footage was evidence that Trump doesn't actually know the lyrics to the National Anthem.

"We want our flag respected", Trump told the annual gathering of the American Farm Bureau Federation in Nashville.

"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 and coach Kenny Wharton were cleared in 2003 after Under-19 players Ross Gardner and James Beaumont made claims against them. The 56-year-old former Magpies player, who has been in his current role since 2009, faces multiple complaints.

Trump has criticised professional football players who kneel during the anthem to protest racial injustice, as well as the NFL itself for allowing it. "Find something else to do!"

As president of the United States, Donald Trump has heard the national anthem countless times.

The recent release of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff only worsened those concerns, with Wolff's reports from inside the West Wing adding up to the conclusion that Donald Trump is suffering from some form of dementia.

By contrast, his predecessor President Barack Obama famously neglected to put his hand over his heart during the 2008 election campaign.

Last week, a psychiatrist called for the president to be physically detained for an "emergency" mental health evaluation.

Dr Lee has never treated or consulted with Mr Trump and his comments sparked debate on the ethics of armchair diagnosis.
