  • Did Trump forget the words to U.S. national anthem?

"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. "We want to keep it that way".

Most of the players from Georgia and Alabama remained in their locker rooms during the anthem - though Alabama star running back Bo Scarbrough was caught on audio yelling "F-k Trump" in the tunnel at the Atlanta stadium before taking the field.

Trump has singled out ex-NFL quarterback Kaepernick for launching the trend previous year, and called other pro ballers SOBs who should be fired for participating in the silent protests.

What has Mr Trump said about the anthem?

After a quiet period on the issue, Trump revived his criticism of national anthem protest last week, tweeting a photo of a woman lying down on a military grave. The same month, he said kneeling as a protest with the Black Lives Matter movement has "nothing to do with race".

Trump, who has been very vocal about urging respect for the anthem, attended the game in Atlanta. "National Football League must respect this!"

Still, other users felt Trump's poor lip-singing was a sign that he might be developing dementia - a rumor that has intensified after "Fire and Fury" author Michael Wolff claimed several people within his own administration frequently question Trump's mental stability and competency.

Previous surveys have found that many American's don't know the full lyrics to the USA anthem, but for the United States president, a man who has attacked footballers for their actions during the anthem, his inability to sing the lyrics proved unpopular online.

It's also worth noting that the US flag code doesn't require Americans to sing along with the anthem.

There are no penalties for not following the flag code. He only sang parts of the song.

But as some on Twitter pointed out, right-wing critics who once called out what they considered to be President Obama's inadequately large American flag pin, could not by the same standard consider it a reverential performance.
