TOUGH CROWD

Trump Met by Protests, Mockery at NCAA Game

President Trump on Monday was met with jeers as he made his way onto the field of the NCAA championship football game in Atlanta, where protesters projected the message “Fuck Trump” on the front of the stadium. Trump’s appearance at the game—where he took the field to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner”—also triggered scorn from Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough, who appeared to yell “Fuck Trump” ahead of the high-stakes game against Georgia. Trump, who famously feuded with NFL players who chose to kneel during the national anthem to protest racial inequality, was met with equal disdain from Atlanta’s NAACP chapter. The group urged those attending the game to wave white towels to simulate a “mighty storm” of “snowflakes.” The president stuck around long enough to sing along to part of the national anthem, though footage showed him apparently singing the wrong words. He left before the halftime performance of Kendrick Lamar, who has previously slammed the president as a “chump.”
