On the eve of New York’s primary, Republican front-runner Donald Trump told a crowd that he wanted to talk about the terrorist attack – which happened “down on 7-Eleven.”
“I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen, down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down,” Trump said on Monday. “And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.”
The New York Times reports:
Mr. Trump did not seem to realize that he had invoked a chain of convenience stores, and the crowd did not seem to mind. He continued speaking without hesitation, recalling the bravery he witnessed after the attacks.
After recalling the attacks which didn’t happen at the convenience stores, the bombastic billionaire went on to talk of “the New York values that we all know so well” to target Senator Ted Cruz.
“Despite its problems, we love this state,” Trump said. “We know it’s going to come back. If I’m president, it’s going to come back so fast, you won’t even believe it.”
Of course the audience didn’t flinch when he told the New York crowd of the terrorist attacks on 9/11, which did not happen at the convenience stores. Another thing they didn’t happen was his previous claim that thousands of Muslims in New Jersey danced in the streets after the World Trade Center Twin Towers fell. But on that claim, too, Conservatives back him up even though it’s ludicrous and there is no evidence which exists to prove this jaw-dropping theory. Facts shmacts!
Over 3,000 people died instantly on what will forever be known as 9/11. About 10,000 others were treated for injuries.
Later, Senate Republicans went on to block the 9/11 first responders health plan bill.
“It’s absolutely disgusting that we have to keep on coming back down here and to keep on begging, it’s like we’re beggars,” Anthony Flammia, a retired New York City Police Officer and 9/11 responder said outside Mitch McConnell’s office last December.
