CNN is claiming that the president is stealing valor by inferring he was a first responder on 9/11 when he CLEARLY STATES THAT HE WAS NOT!
Donald Trump has always had a bit of Walter Mitty in him. But on Monday morning, in a speech to first responders and others impacted by the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, he took his fantastical memory of himself to new and not-at-all-appropriate heights.”I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder,” Trump said. “But I was down there. I spent a lot of time down there with you.”
Uh, what? Let’s be clear about what Trump is doing here: He is associating himself — very closely — with the men and women who were the first to respond to planes being crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. People who continue to suffer health issues due to their jobs.
This is bordering on actionable, the lies are that egregious.
Others are saying Trump was never there even though there is tons of footage proving otherwise.
And then this from the chief of police at the time–>
