Donald Trump on Monday took the field at the 2018 NCAA Football National Championship during the singing of the national anthem—and appeared not to know all the words.

Trump, who received boos from the crowd during his appearance at the Georgia vs. Alabama game, has made the national anthem a staple of his presidency, leading the charge against sports players who take a knee during the tune.
The irony of Trump’s apparent inability to sing the very anthem he claims to champion was not lost on the Internet.

The very least that President Trump could've done was mouthed "watermelon" a few times if he didn't know the National Anthem. Any drag queen or lip syncher could've taught him that. #NationalChampionship

You know who knows the words to the National Anthem?
Trump, you're a disgrace.#NationalChampionship

Trump’s next speech should be him having to recite all the words to the National Anthem without a TelePrompTer. He has no clue. #NationalChampionship

Of course the Donald that demeaned black and white athletes for understanding the true meaning of our National Anthem doesn’t even know the words. What’s the over-under on length of outrage if Obama had… oh, nevermind.

I'm going to need a @BadLipReading take on Trump's mumble-mouth rendition of the National Anthem.

Of course Stable Genius doesn’t know the words to the National Anthem. His name isn’t in it.

Just fell out of my chair and kept rolling for several yards upon being presented with evidence that Trump may not have his beloved National Anthem memorized

Dr. Trump’s medicine show: Why is the president pushing an unproven drug? Follow the money
The "Trump is all about Trump" maxim goes a long way to explaining his obsessive beer-funneling of a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine down the gullets of COVID-19 victims.
New York firefighter gets emotional talking about EMTs who feel guilty they’re too sick to work
The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.
Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.
"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."
‘Can we get a refund?’ Trump flack Stephanie Grisham faces a landslide of mockery after her abrupt dismissal
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is reportedly being relieved of her duties after having gone a full ten months on the job without holding a single press briefing.
Given that Grisham hauled in a salary of $183,000 despite never actually appearing before reporters to answer questions, some Americans are asking if we can get a "refund" for her purported services.
Others, meanwhile, are simply happy to see her leave despite having rarely, if ever, seen her talk in public.
