US President Donald Trump, never far from controversy, has caused another media stir with his rendition of the US national anthem during a college football game in Atlanta. He also repeated his criticism of the NFL players who kneel during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial inequality.
But tweeters also wondered whether Trump's botched Anthem singalong was more a sign of forgetfulness and early dementia.
President Trump appeared to struggle with the lyrics of the national anthem at a college football match last night, hours after renewing demands that professional players show respect for the song.
He then watched the game from a private box overlooking the Alabama sideline, before departing the stadium during half-time, as Georgia led Alabama 13-0. Unfortunately for Trump, he quickly became a trending topic before kick-off when he was recorded mumbling his way through the National Anthem!
But supporters praised the president for taking the field, hand on heart.
Trump stood on the field for "The Star-Spangled Banner".

Among the film's other nominations are Sally Hawkins for leading actress and Octavia Spencer for supporting actress . The lead characters in " The Shape of Water " and " Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri ", however, are women.
And another added: "The man clearly does not know the words to the National Anthem".
Other users defended the president. They were joined on the field by President Donald Trump, who attended the game. "Singing along wouldn't be easy for him".
Obviously Trump's critics were delighted and took to Twitter to gloat or simply express their astonishment.
Trump to Twitter on January 6 to respond to the book.
Previous surveys have found that many American's don't know the full lyrics to the USA anthem, but for the U.S. president, a man who has attacked footballers for their actions during the anthem, his inability to sing the lyrics proved unpopular online. I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius.and a very stable genius at that!
