Today marks the 17th anniversary of the horrific attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, where thousands of lives were lost there and in the hijacked airplanes. Looking back on those events, let's remind ourselves of how sociopath and malignant narcissist Donald "Rump" Trump talks about it:
“I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering." -- Rump at a November 21, 2015 campaign rally in Alabama, suggesting a link Muslim Americans with the attack.
“There were people that were cheering on the other side of New Jersey, where you have large Arab populations. They were cheering as the World Trade Center came down.” -- Rump the following day on ABC's "This Week," making it more explicit.
“40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest — and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second-tallest. And now it’s the tallest.” -- Rump interviewed on WWOR New York on 9/11/01 bragging about his building being the tallest in lower Manhattan, which was a lie.
"I would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th.” -- Rump tweeting on 9/11/13 making it about his enemies.He's ducking the memorial events in New York City and at the Pentagon, preferring to visit the memorial site in Shanksville, PA where hijacked United Airlines flight 93 crashed. If a mic is put in his face, he's bound to make a political statement or worse.
UPDATE: Arriving on Air Force 1, Rump pumped his fists on the tarmac as if he was headed to another
