Zac Brown Band Sings National Anthem Before College Football National Championship

  • Donald Trump is expected to join Eli Gold and Phil Savage on the Alabama radio broadcast of the 2018 national championship game

Trump attended the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in Atlanta on January 8 and appeared to have forgotten the words to The Star-Spangled Banner, the Daily Mail reported.

Even as the #Resistance rushed to disrupt Monday night's NCAA football title game with anti-Trump protests at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium, it was President Donald Trump who stole the show.

"Trump doesn't know the national anthem".

The president mouthed along to the first few lines of the national anthem with no issues.

Trump insisted that the protesting footballers are "disrespecting" the flag and the 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.

However, many people watching on TV thought they spotted the President struggling with the words as the Zac Brown Band struck up.




But supporters praised the president for taking the field, hand on heart. This is OUR President", wrote "That Trump Guy. "So unprecedented as far as I know", tweeted Vaughn Esham.

"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".

On the way to the game on Monday, Trump signed a law creating a new national historic park for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

This is so intense right now as the Trump book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" written by Michael Wolff claimed that Trump was constantly forgetting things.

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".
