This is rich, folks. Not surprising, not shocking, but disturbing and unacceptable in so many ways. Donald Trump attended the NCAA College Football Championship game on Monday night and proved (yet again) that he really is as terrible as he seems.
Not that we needed any more examples of his unfitness for office, but he offered it up on a silver platter before the game when he attempted and failed to mouth the words to our national anthem.
Yes, the man behind #MAGA, the No. 1 detractor of Colin Kaepernick and the #TakeAKnee movement, can't even sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" correctly.
Here's Trump at the game on Monday night looking like a smug baby who's proud that he just pooped his diaper.

He was in his supposed "heartland," and yet he was met with a healthy mix of cheers and boos.

And he totally messed it up!

Take a closer look — this is real, people. The President of the United States doesn't know the words to the national anthem.

Understandably, many (myself included) are absolutely fuming that the guy who dared to criticize Colin Kaepernick and the utterly respectful, significant, and poignant #TakeAKnee movement doesn't know the words to the song he apparently sees as the only indicator of love for our country.

"Watermelon. Cantaloupe. Watermelon. Cantaloupe. Applesauce applesauce applesauce."
It looked like Donald Trump just kept repeating “applesauce” during the National Anthem. #NationalChampionship— Tony Posnanski (@Tony Posnanski)1515460500.0

While it isn't shocking that Trump can't properly sing the national anthem, it's still frustrating beyond belief.

Trump may have claimed to be a "stable genius," but this wasn't even the action of a man in his right mind.
@politico Half the people booed him 😂😂. At an Alabama Georgia game. And he forgot the words to the anthem. What a "stable genius".— Zach Meeker (@Zach Meeker)1515462750.0
