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.

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

Trump dodges and gives an accidentally revealing answer when confronted on his anti-LGBT policies
When President Donald Trump was asked Tuesday about whether he supports his administration's anti-LGBT policies — including a new rule that would make it easier for employers to discriminate — he gave what seemed to be an unintentionally revealing answer.

‘Absurd’: Trump scraps Denmark visit after Danes say Greenland not for sale
US President Donald Trump Tuesday postponed a planned visit to Denmark after Danish officials insisted its autonomous territory of Greenland was not for sale.
Trump's decision confirms just how interested he was in purchasing Greenland, an idea initially dismissed as a joke by some, but which the White House later insisted had a serious purpose because of its strategic location.
"Based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen's comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time," Trump tweeted.
