On Wednesday, as the nation remembered the 18th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, President Donald Trump followed up his tweet marking the occasion with a disjointed, angry rant about “Crooked Hillary,” “Sleepy Joe,” “Pocahontas,” and the “fake news” media cooking up “suppression polls” to sabotage him:
….This is a phony suppression poll, meant to build up their Democrat partners. I haven’t even started campaigning yet, and am constantly fighting Fake News like Russia, Russia, Russia. Look at North Carolina last night. Dan Bishop, down big in the Polls, WINS. Easier than 2016!

Commenters on social media were not impressed with how the president of the United States chose to kick off a solemn day of remembrance:
It’s 9/11 and you’re tweet raging about polling? You’re disgusting Trump.

It’s 9/11 and the President is denigrating American Citizens again.
What’s next, you going to start praising the Taliban, ISIS and Al-Qaeda today?
