Protestors Project "F-k Trump" On Stadium At College Football National Championship

For the Groover family sports brings them together

President Donald Trump walked onto the field and stood with members of the military for the National Anthem at the college football national championship game Monday night in Atlanta.

It is Trump's second visit to Atlanta since he won the election, and several dozen demonstrators protested near the stadium.

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. Activists have attempted to correct Trump, pointing out that the players are protesting racism and police brutality, not the flag or the anthem. Organizers said the show of white was meant to mock the "snowflake" insult that Trump supporters make against the president's opponents.

Donald Trump's garbled version of the United States national anthem at a college football game on Tuesday (NZ time) has people talking.

Sporting an American flag lapel pin, natch, Trump stood with hand over his heart while the colors were presented and "The Star-Spangled Banner" was performed by Grammy-winning country stars Zac Brown Band, with an intro and backing from David Walker & High Praise.


Trump's apparent slurring of the words stands in sharp contrast to his repeated attacks on black National Football League players kneeling during the anthem.

Players for Alabama and Georgia were nowhere to be seen as the anthem was played, prompting some to wonder if they'd been kept in the locker rooms to avoid an unsightly protest in front of Trump.

Trump, who has criticized professional athletes for kneeling during the National Anthem, appeared in good spirits on the field Monday - and then after the anthem, he left to take his seat for the game.

Trump is expected to join Alabama's radio broadcast for an interview at the end of the first quarter with play-by-play man Eli Gold and analyst Phil Savage. Rapper Kendrick Lamar, who has been a critic of the president, performed during the break.
