President Trump walked on the field as the crowd went wild, put his hand over his chest, and he PROUDLY sang along with the National Anthem. <—(WATCH)
President Trump loves AMERICA and our MILITARY! And WE LOVE HIM! This moment in time was AMAZING!
Meanwhile, one Alabama player — identified as running back Bo Scarbrough — was heard yelling ‘F— Trump’ before the game, Sporting News reported, showing video of the team apparently walking off the field after pregame warm-ups. (VIDEO BELOW)

According to Fox News, both the Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide stayed back in the locker room as the anthem played, which is common among college football teams. They stormed the field shortly afterwards.
Additionally, plans for the president’s visit had been met with criticism from the NAACP.
Atlanta’s NAACP chapter said on its Facebook page that fans inside the stadium for the College Football Playoff title should send Trump a message by waving white towels “simulating a blizzard.”
“We will not let the President’s visit go without a response. If you are lucky enough to attend the game, we encourage you to bring a white towel to wave simulating a blizzard while the president is in the packed stadium,” the group said. “Trump supporters mockingly call the opposition snowflakes, but when we come together we create a mighty storm.”
This is an embarrassment to college football and Alabama. Do you think running back Bo Scarbrough should be removed from the team for disrespecting the President? Let us know in the comments below.
