President Donald Trump marked the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks with a breezy tweet — and other social media users buried him in scorn.
The president spent the morning catching up on Fox Business Channel programming from the previous night and complaining about the Russia investigation before turning his glancing attention to the events of Sept. 11, 2001.
17 years since September 11th!

Other Twitter users were shocked and horrified by his flippant remark.
Thanks. We’re aware https://t.co/mZjfrAW9ST

Thanks Captain Obvious!

What's with the exclamation point, dude?

Like it's a happy anniversary or something https://t.co/XBkwgb2n97

There’s a September 11th every year idiot

A lot of presidents would use this day to honor the dead, rather than prove they have the ability to count.

Folks, you look at the numbers and they just keep getting bigger. Many good numbers! https://t.co/SYRGIYiLas

Dude, why? What's the purpose of this tweet? Don't you have anything more meaningful to say?

Him do good math

Why do you put an exclamation point like it’s something to be excited about? It’s a sad day of remembrance. You have no humanity.

Normal tweet. https://t.co/MTRvN98JCz

Ending with an exclamation mark. No condolances to those who've had to live with the suffering of damage or loss throughout these 17 years? It just seems wrong.

Also 17 years when you called in to WOR radio and bragged that since the World Trade Centers had fallen you now had the tallest building in the city…what a depraved corrupt man you are.

You definitely do not have the best words!

Yes, 17 years ago people were dying at this very moment. Your response: "Now my building is the tallest."
17 years later, you're the still the smallest man on Earth.
