During one of his speeches, Trump even called a football player who refused to stand at attention during the performance of the United States national anthem "son of a bitch". "We want our flag respected - and we want our NATIONAL ANTHEM respected also!" 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".
Most of the players from Georgia and Alabama remained in their locker rooms during the anthem - though Alabama star running back Bo Scarbrough was caught on audio yelling "F-k Trump" in the tunnel at the Atlanta stadium before taking the field.
President Trump attended Monday night's stunner of a college football championship Monday night between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama, which was played in Atlanta. After a while, however, he appeared to lose track of the words, and began singing random words, with no concept of the song's tune.
At first, the president's detractors took to Twitter, gleefully suggesting that he didn't know the words to the song at all. He has publicly blasted several players a year ago for not respecting the anthem or the flag. Televised footage of the match shows that the president while mouthing the lyrics, appears to sing some words wrong and pausing at some lines, though Trump could not be heard. BBC News journalist Anthony Zurcher pointed out on Twitter that it can be hard to hear the anthem on the field, and singing along isn't always easy.
