Twitter erupts into mockery after Donald Trump bungles God Bless America and the National Anthem at his Celebration of America event held at the White House on Tuesday. It was a so-called patriotic event led by a five-time draft dodger. While the military sang the anthem, Trump stopped singing at one point. The least he could do, if he’s going to trash players about the anthem, is know the words.
The 71-year-old toddler threw a temper tantrum when he learned that about four to 10 Philadelphia Eagles players had planned to show up at the White House. He then rescinded the invite saying that the entire team was not going to show up. Um, he called them sons of bitches, lied about the Eagles taking a knee during the pre-game rendition of the anthem and staying in the locker room. This team did neither.

He didn’t know some words of the Star Spangled Banner. The irony is that he’s attacking the black players for taking a stand by kneeling during the anthem, yet he does not know the words. Um, my children knew the words at an early age. This buffoonery is just ridiculous.
Reaction on Twitter:
Donald Trump has now proven, on live television, his utter disinterest in even attempting to memorize the words to “God Bless America” and the National Anthem.
The fact he’s still allowed to hide behind the flag and his fake patriotism is an embarrassment.

Look Trump's an idiot and obviously calling a Patriotism ceremony then not knowing the words to the handpicked song would be humiliating if the man was capable of feeling shame but… BUT….
You're not unpatriotic if you don't know the words to God Bless America

Trump now singing God Bless America, written by Ирвинг Берлин, an immigrant Russian Jew also known as Israel Beilin, and later known as Irving Berlin. He arrived at age 5 with his parents, fleeing the pogroms.
Luckily, border control didn't separate him from his parents.

If Obama had forgotten the words to God Bless America it would have spawned 100 lunatic articles about how he knew the Kenyan national anthem or the Internationale by heart. https://t.co/ZJpBBwXav5

Why doesn’t your president know the words to God Bless America or the National Anthem? One would think if one is going to use them as a weapon to claim patriotism, one would actually know what they say and could sing them. But Trump can’t and won’t. Why?

At least Melanie is smart enough to know that when you don’t know the lyrics to “God Bless America” you don’t show up and make a fool of yourself…..oh and she can’t stand being in the vicinity of her clown of a husband.

#TheFailingDonaldTrump failed to remember the words to “God Bless America”, failing to prove his patriot..
What this? Yes, we’ve just learned that the cue cards were hacked by none other than Hillary Clinton. Repeat, Hillary colluded with patriotism. https://t.co/sWjVMApk2p
