  • Trump skips parts of national anthem at football game

Hours before the game, Trump took to Twitter to tout the national anthem, saying the song, and the American flag, needed to be honored. But when the National Anthem began to play, several social media users noticed Trump was struggling to get through the words.

But when it was time to place hand on heart and belt out the famous song, Trump seems to have forgotten the words.

It is also pertinent to mention Trump pushed the national anthem as a partisan issue shortly before the game during a speech to the American Farm Bureau Federation in Tennessee, tweeting, "We want our flag respected - and we want our NATIONAL ANTHEM respected also!"

And given the president's strong stance on the national anthem, it's no surprise that his critics pounced.

No athletes protested at Monday's game, in part, because they were not on the field when the anthem was sung.

Following the national anthem, Alabama running back Bo Scarborough, who clearly wasn't happy with Trump (figuratively) kicking off the game, was heard yelling an anti-Trump slur before taking the field.

Protesters waved white towels in the stands _ the color chosen to mock how liberals are often called "snowflakes", The Washington Post reported.

Trump's anthem fail set off a Twitterstorm of seething sarcasm. The photo touched a nerve for politicizing military widows. "Trump, you're a disgrace".

But as we approach midterm elections and Republicans try to court black voters, Trump may have to tread carefully.

Earlier Monday, the president repeated his call for the anthem to be respected.

The president was reportedly greeted with a mixture of cheers and boos while taking the field.
