Trump's Uneven National Anthem Performance Fuels Dementia Fears

Trump's Uneven National Anthem Performance Fuels Dementia Fears

Tens of thousands of fans at a college championship game in Atlanta between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama booed and cheered has he took to the field for the national anthem.

Social media commented that it appeared the president doesn't know the words to the song - which is especially peculiar because of his repeated stance that the country's flag and anthem must be respected at football games.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he's fired?'" Trump said in August.

Trump Administration Tells 200000 Salvadorans To Leave Or Get Deported
TPS beneficiaries from these nations have an estimated 273,000 USA citizen children (born in the United States). One official said Salvadorans will have until September 2019 to leave the country or adjust their legal status.

After months of criticizing football players for kneeling during the national anthem, President Trump sang "The Star Spangled Banner" in public on Monday night. According to a report in TIME, Trump's attendance was seen as an opportunity to protest as groups like the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP (The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and Refuse Fascism had planned demonstrations and protests in and outside of the venue.

Video of the performance shows Trump mouthing some of the words, but he also appeared to have botched some of the lyrics.

Earlier Monday, the president repeated his call for the anthem to be respected.

How Trump failed to keep the Wolff from the door
Kelly said Trump did not seem angry and on Friday night had watched a new movie, "The Greatest Showman" about legendary circus promoter P.T.

Trump has criticised professional football players who kneel during the anthem to protest racial injustice, as well as the NFL itself for allowing it. "Singing along wouldn't be easy for him".

Later, Trump took to Twitter praising Pence for leaving the game.

It's also worth noting that the US flag code doesn't require Americans to sing along with the anthem. He said his grandfather had taught him to do this only during the pledge, and to only sing during the anthem. I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius.and a very stable genius at that!
