When US President Donald Trump turned up at Atlanta, Georgia, for a public appearance at a college football game, he was met with a combination of both cheering and booing from the crowd. But then “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the US national anthem, began to play and everyone stood up to put their hands on their chests and sing the lyrics proudly, and it looked very much as through the President could not remember all the lyrics of the song.

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.

This is the President of the United States that we’re talking about.

President Trump definitely didn’t sing all the words

So, why exactly do people think that President Trump forgot the words to the national anthem? Well, there’s no official confirmation that he forgot the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner,” but he definitely didn’t sing all of the words, so it stands to reason that he didn’t remember them. He got off to a stilted start on the song, he mouthed most of the words, kept pausing, and missed all the rest. It’s painful to watch.
