Donald Trump seemed to forget the words to the U.S. national anthem

Mr Trump was on the sidelines of an NCAA National Championship game between Georgia and Alabama on Monday (US time) when he joined a country music group and gospel choir to lead a rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner. President Trump's mental state has already been called into question, and the bad lip sync has been identified by some as proof that the president's mental health is deteriorating. He tweeted: "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 LMFAO".

After the anthem, Trump left the field without saying anything.

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

On Twitter, June Yoon said: "Our national embarrassment doesn't know our national anthem".

At first, the president's detractors took to Twitter, gleefully suggesting that he didn't know the words to the song at all.

Trump supporters backed him for standing upright, hand over heart and looking proud as punch.

"As a military veteran who has watched Trump, a coward who never served and received five draft deferments, slam Colin Kaepernick as unpatriotic for peacefully protesting, I am beyond livid that he doesn't know the words to the National Anthem", tweeted Charlotte Clymer, a former aide to Hillary Clinton.

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. He said his grandfather had taught him to do this only during the pledge, and to only sing during the anthem.

Trump can be seen occasionally singing along, with gaps of either silence or humming as he proudly held his hand over his chest during the anthem.

Trump to Twitter on January 6 to respond to the book. He also repeated his criticism of the NFL players who kneel during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial inequality.
