Endorse This: Trump Remembers ‘7/11’

Share

Ever since Ted Cruz lambasted “New York values” at January’s Fox Business debate — presumably because he didn’t think he would need New Yorkers’ votes, or maybe because he didn’t want them — Donald Trump has bumped former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani for the title of most 9/11-happy politician in the country, bragging about his proximity to the events on that day 15 years ago and re-tooling the largest attack on American soil to suit his political ends.

In his campaigning ahead of New York’s primary, Trump made Cruz’s comments, and his 9/11-centric rebuttal to them, the central part of his stump speech, whipping up crowds from Suffolk County to Buffalo into frenzies over something he didn’t really have anything to do with — unlike Giuliani, obviously.

Trump seems to have gotten so numb to the phrase “9/11” that he must have forgotten it altogether — he either misremembered the attacks happening in July or was caught daydreaming about midnight taquitos while recalling aloud the bravery of his having been alive 15 years ago.

Neither Trump nor his audience batted an eye at the mistake — though that silence wasn’t as powerful as Trump’s was last fall, when he refused to support the James Zadroga Act, which permanently extended heath care benefits to 9/11 first responders.

      I don’t think he did. I think he was at 7/11. Honestly.

      However.. Had Obama said that, the neocons would have been ready to string the ‘Muslim’ up from the old oak tree.

    There are more pressing issues in the USA than to get a woman elected.

      I don’t think the US will see a woman president in our lifetime.

            the truth is I didn’t think he would won the first term . just because of all the hate the country has (and yes I did want him to win the first time ) and with that his 2nd term I registered to vote (first time in my life over 50 years old ) and voted for him the 2nd I would did it the first term but again I felt too much hate in the country (my bad ) the hate was over ride by the love and for change . as I feel a women should have a chance to run the country . she should pick L. Warren for her VP to run with Hillary . and yes I think thy should give B Sanders work on things he has a lot of good idea’s BUT ITS TIME FOR A WOMEN IN THE HOUSE

      WHY a ‘woman’? Why not a democratic candidate, period. OH, that’s right. That didn’t work with Obama, either. Not just a president but an alien negro not worthy of the office because he wasn’t like them!! Maybe a woman’s touch is what’s needed. I would say the same for a viable republican one, also.

        No time for gender issues. We need a competent person. It is time for a pragmatist, a negotiator, an individual that can delegate, and organize. That takes special talent and intuition. Tump fulfills that role. i do not like everything about Trump. That does not take anything from the fact that he is the the right man. The politicians have failed. All of them since Ronald Reagan. Clinton is cut from the same cloth as Obama, and it is clear that her energy is waning.

          You criticize Ms Clinton and then say you’re for Trump? TRUMP?
          Really? I’d say you’re kidding, but you sound like the kind of old-timey sexist who would be desperate enough to avoid a female president to support a self-worshipping and ignorant blowhard like TRUMP.

          Trump is a bully….the only way he’ll get things done is by intimidating people, bullying them, and telling them that he’s going to sue them! He can’t delegate OR organize without bullying! This is NOT what we need in a president at this time!

            Definitely!!! He’s coming to my wonderful state of California, and he’s going to have a HARD time talking people into voting for him, even the Republicans in this state. California is a very long-time Democratic-voting state, and Hillary is their choice. Not sure WHO the republicans in the state will vote for…..but, they won’t get many votes, we hope. Choosing between Cruz and Trump is like deciding which STD is the least invasive (joke)!!!

    Trump like him or hate him…has done one huge thing for this country. EXPOSING the corruption of a private entity the RNC, and Sanders exposing the corruption in the DNC is the best cleansing this country has had in generations.

      He didn’t expose anything unless you didn’t know how the system works. At no time in history did the voters have final say on the parties candidate. What he proved once again was he doesn’t do his homework. The DNC has no problem with Sanders but as of right now he hasn’t gotten the free agents behind him. Unlike Trump, Sanders knows how things work.

      I am 67 years old, black, a registered and staunch democrat since 1970 and I have heard it all and seen it all. Independents ‘making’ a difference. NOT!! Third party candidates, really? One was shot for his try. I sincerely hope it happens during my lifetime BUT when the Supreme court accords life to a building or pieces of paper with business headings, I have my druthers.

      There really could almost be 57. Start counting our territories and the money we pay to them. Puerto Rico, Guam and once, the Philippines and how many others, including islands like Midway? Considering they vote in the primaries, try 50 + 16!! Always nit picking on the minutiae instead of the lunatics of the right.

    I too was in “proximity” to the catastrophe, but I’m certainly not going to brag about being close by to a fate that claimed so many lives. “9/11” or “7/11” are just minor details to his Lordship.

    The important thing is that Lord Fauntleroy was “brave” enough to duck inside a Seven Eleven and save his skin. How fortunate we are that he escaped unscathed.
