President Trump gets national anthem moment at football title game

President Trump gets national anthem moment at football title game

In front of tens of thousands packed in to watch Alabama and Georgia faces off in a National Championship playoff game in Atlanta's $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Trump appeared to mumble his way through it.

Trump has recently criticized Atlanta as "horrible" and "crime infested".

"Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in frightful shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results".

"I've never played in front of a president before", linebacker Terrell Lewis said.

When the President was arriving in his motorcade, football fans who had been waiting outside the stadium had a mixed reaction.

Many Atlantans defended their city against Trump's attacks, using the hashtag #defendthefifth as they talked up Atlanta's many attributes, including being home to the world's busiest airport, one of the world's largest aquariums, and, for transparency, the headquarters of CNN.

Needless to say, his appearance was not without controversy, drawing protests, long lines outside Mercedes-Benz Stadium and a mix of boos and cheers upon arrival.

Thankfully, protesters were able to get their message across without being threatened by pro-Trump supporters.

The White House announced last week that Trump would attend the championship game between the University of Alabama and the University of Georgia.

Still, they said, "we will not let the President's visit go without a response". The President then smiled and waved as he walked off the field.

"It's his denial of the legitimacy of the previous president demonstrates his racism and his association with white nationalists and defending the continued celebration of the confederacy, which was a failed insurrection against America", Rose told TheDCNF.
