    While some social media users mocked Trump’s knowledge of the anthem’s lyrics, others focused their attention on a particular line he appeared to omit.

    US President Donald Trump appears to have landed in hot water while attending the recent Alabama-LSU football game as some observant viewers took note of his rendition of the national anthem at the event.

    A video which surfaced online shows that Trump seems to have stopped singing at the penultimate line, even as the people around him continued to sing, with the Independent even suggesting that the president appeared to “forget the words”.

    ​This development quickly attracted the attention of Trump’s critics who went on to bash the president about it.

    Some netizens focused their attention on which line Trump apparently didn’t sing, pondering on the meaning of this gesture.

    ​And there were also those who mocked Trump over the sports events he got booed at recently.
