'Our national embarrassment': Donald Trump dragged after stumbling over U.S. national anthem

Getty									Zac Brown Band have performed the anthem at several major sporting events

US President Donald Trump has been mocked by his critics on social media after he appeared to stumble his way through the National Anthem last night.

The Trump administration has made national anthem protests in the NFL an intense focus point in the first year in office, with Vice President Mike Pence attending a Colts game in October only to leave as players protested during the national anthem.

NewsFix hit the streets of Houston to see how much of the anthem people knew, and as you might guess, some remembered more than others. But when he joined members of the military on the field for the National Anthem before the game, it became clear he couldn't - or wouldn't fully sing along.

Tens of thousands of fans at a college championship game in Atlanta between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama booed and cheered has he took to the field for the national anthem.

"We want our flag respected", he said earlier in the day during a speech in Nashville, Tennessee, "and we want our national anthem respected also".

But supporters praised the president for taking the field, hand on heart.

This is the President of the #United States that we're talking about.

And another added: "The man clearly does not know the words to the National Anthem".

Not surprisingly, it comes from his oldest son, Donald Trump Jr. The general fear is that he is developing Dementia and Twitter users in America have not stopped coming for him for seemingly forgetting the words to the American national anthem.

Many observers were unimpressed, pointing out that Trump had adopted a position as guardian of the anthem. I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius.and a very stable genius at that!
