DEPLORABLE: That Time Trump Said The Twin Towers ‘Were Not Great Buildings’ Anyway


Donald Trump hasn’t tweeted today about the 9/11 attacks and it’s probably best that he doesn’t considering history of making that day all about him. Donald has claimed to have lost “hundreds of friends” the day the Twin Towers fell but that, too, appears to be a fabrication. Donald lives 4 miles from Ground Zero, yet he said that from his apartment, he witnessed people jumping out of windows during the attack. By the way, I lived less than a mile from Ground Zero and what he said he saw, could not possibly be true.

Just after the attacks which left our country stunned, the Deplorable One spoke to a reporter from the New York Post and said,“To be blunt, they were not great buildings. They only became great upon their demise last Tuesday.”

Donald even bragged that his building was now the tallest in lower Manhattan. It’s almost as if he was grateful that we were attacked.

Politico reports:

Only parenthetically in the middle of the 10-minute conversation did Trump turn to a favorite topic—size. “40 Wall Street,” he said, referring to his 71-story building blocks away from the now-collapsed twin towers, “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.”

Marcus chalked up the remark to “Donald being Donald. … He is the brand manager of Trump, and he is going to tout that brand, and he does it reflexively,” he said. “Even on that day.

The 9/11 attacks killed 2,996 people and injured more than 6,000 others. In 2010, Senate Republicans filibustered legislation to monitor and treat first responders and emergency workers who suffered illnesses related to the 9/11 attacks.

Donald profited from 9/11. He’s just that kind of a guy.

In 2012, Donald tweeted, “What a coincidence that Obama’s good friends in Libya and Egypt picked 9/11 to attack our embassies.”

In 2013, Donald lowered the bar. “I would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th,” Trump tweeted on Sept. 11, 2013.










That tweet was deleted and all that remains is this:

That said, it’s not surprising that Donald the Deplorable became the GOP presidential nominee. Instead of stopping such a vile creature from representing the Republican Party, conservatives have embraced him. He’s given a pass after every repugnant, cringeworthy comment. He’s given a pass when he insults prisoners of war, Muslims, a fallen war hero’s family, black people, women and Latinos. He has brought out the worst in society. The Alt-Right intentionally offend others then claim they aren’t into political correctness. That’s just an excuse to be a dick to others. Donald is their hero.
