Donald Trump stumbles over words during national anthem

11 January 2018

The Zac Brown Band is uniting college football fans with their hair-raising performance of the National Anthem.

The national anthem became a burning issue of the U.S. politics in September after Trump's severe criticism of NFL players kneeling during the song as a way to protest against violence towards black Americans.

"IDEA: Before spending 6 months lecturing football players about respecting the national anthem MAYBE LEARN THE WORDS", tweeted Judd Legum, editor of the lefty news outlet ThinkProgress.

Following the national anthem, Alabama running back Bo Scarborough, who clearly wasn't happy with Trump (figuratively) kicking off the game, was heard yelling an anti-Trump slur before taking the field. Trump seemed more excited to sing along near the end of the song, according to the pool report.

President Donald Trump made a decision to take in some good old-fashioned American fun by taking in the country's most popular past time-a football game.

On Tuesday morning, Hargrave's Facebook page was filled with supportive comments, some thanking her for taking a stand. Her comments prompted board president Anthony Fontana to rule Hargrave out of order during the meeting, KATC reported.

While Trump's supporters are saying that they're proud to see the guy standing up with his hand on his heart (they'll grasp onto just about anything these days), his detractors and critics noticed that he struggled through the song and it looked like he had forgotten all the words.

At the time, Pence said, "I left today's Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our flag, or our national anthem". He renewed the attack earlier Monday on Twitter.

"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".

The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

Trump sparked controversy last September after he referred to Colin Kaepernick and other protesting athletes as "sons of bitches" during a rally in Alabama.
