We know it's hard to remember all the words to the national anthem, but it's easy enough to remember to place your hand over your heart during the song - or so we thought until President Donald Trump forgot to do it during the annual Easter egg roll on April 17. Thankfully, the president had First Lady Melania Trump to quickly remind him, but that didn't stop the internet from roasting Trump for yet another flub.
Here's a clip showing Melania nudging Trump to place his hand over his heart during the national anthem.

People couldn't believe Melania had to remind Trump what to do.
@CapehartJ She had to nudge the 'prez' to make him put his hand over his heart during the national anthem. She's embarrassed

Others just made fun of the situation.
@DaniellaMicaela he needs a nudge out of the white house

One person got real with the moment.
@CNN There is no need for him to place his hand over his heart. He does not love this country. He considers it his personal bank.

Maybe Trump can stop obsessing over handshakes and instead focus on remembering the basics of being an American citizen.
