  1. I’m glad the bill was finally signed into law. Of course, Trump had to insert himself. He didn’t go down there at all. He’s crazy!!

    I don’t know but it looks like bald faced lies. It’s not about him. To even compare himself to First Responders (with such self-aggrandizement) is obscene.

    • There appears to be 2 videos with Trump being interviewed.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4ZfXOil1pk
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoYXihwcp8c&t=445s
      These both date to the 13th of September (2 days after the attack). So to suggest in the same breath as mentioning firefighters, police officers and other first responders that “I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder” is a disgrace to suggest any case could be made to consider Trump a first responder for turning up 2 days after the event. Any normal person would state that they had the opportunity to briefly visit the site 2 days after the attack. The problem with these videos appears to be that they are several blocks from the site and a complete lack of dust on Trump doesn’t make it look like he had much to do with ground zero. The other issue is that Trump claims that he has 100 workers and another 125 coming, however no one has confirmed seeing these workers. He further appears to claim when talking about his workers that they found 5 firemen. It appears this didn’t happen either (https://www.nytimes.com/2001/09/13/nyregion/hopes-are-raised-and-dashed-about-rescue-of-firefighters.html), so it is unclear just how many lies he is telling.

    • @someone you can’t believe a word Trump says. Weren’t you taught as a young child not to believe a liar. Once a liar always a liar

    • “Im not considering myself a first responder” – Trump

    So now ANOTHER US President has a “credibility gap.” Shades of 1966!

    Does anyone really believe President bone spurs would put his life at risk for anything?

    If real Americans did not force this it would not have happened. A lying petulant child

    • @Jason Miller Where? Google doesn’ t seem know anything about this video.

      @I M D U L L look like we have proof why St Reagan of Bonzo closed mental hospitals so rethugs would have a base

    • @Jason Miller Bullshti! Paul McCartney was there too. Is he a first responder. You do a disservice to the men and women who responded and are now dying off.

  6. Crickets! He likes calling in lyin 🤔😡🤬

  7. that’s like saying I was rubbernecking at the scene of a car accident, which means that I was there next to the first responders so i was helping…

  8. Only the cult believes a word that comes out of this clowns mouth.

      I know it just ticked me right off, especially the part when he said he wasn’t calling himself a first responder. The nerve of this guy right.

  12. #ClownInChief trying to steal the light again – this time in a most despicable way.

    By the way, revisionist history is also a chapter from the dictators playbook.

      Someone doesn’t dictate you. You dictate something. A dictator is a person place or thing. Not a verb. A bully atleast.

    • Keith Peterson | July 31, 2019 at 1:58 AM | Reply

      I’m so dictated right now i’m really shaking right now.

    • @I M D U L L It is. You dummy and your children will be paying for the huge deficit, Trumps 100 million dollars golf trips, Worse air, and water quality and the eroding of the middle class. But all is good in Trumpland!

  13. What a hero, this from a guy who ran his personal bank under the disguise of a charity so his crooked family wouldn’t have to pay more tax than they already don’t. What a creep.

    A hero in his own mind, a shameless compulsive liar, yet he serves and protects corruption w Saudi Arabia, the country responsible for 9/11….
