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.

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.

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
