Trump 'stumbles' through anthem

Donald Trump is being dragged on Twitter after he appeared to not know numerous words to the National Anthem during his appearance at the College Football Playoff National Championship Game between Alabama and Georgia.

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.

Aravosis said: "This is priceless, as only 3 hours after he tweeted this Trump tried to sing the National Anthem and forgot the words".

The president had previously also courted controversy over his singing of the national anthem in May past year.

Trump insisted that the protesting footballers are "disrespecting" the flag and the anthem. Trump seemed more excited to sing along near the end of the song, according to the pool report.

"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.




In the original video, Trump can be seen with his hand over his heart and occasionally moving his lips, sometimes out of time with the music.

The Anthem was performed by the Zac Brown Band at Monday night's game.

After the supposed fumble, Josh Dawsey, a White House reporter who travels with the president, took to Twitter to give his take.

A week in which the world has learned an terrible lot about Donald Trump fittingly ended with one final revelation.

Some Twitter users cried hypocrisy against Trump for his tweets against players taking a knee and Colin Kaepernick but found it totally ridiculous when it appeared that Trump was rambling his way through "The Star-Spangled Banner".
