Jerry Falwell Jr. marked the 18th anniversary of 9/11 by bragging about meeting singer Don Henley — and other social media users poured on the mockery.

The Liberty University president has been the subject of a series of salacious reports this week about his personal life and self-dealing, and he interrupted his denials about partying at nightclubs to boast about an Eagles concert he attended after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Falwell claimed he attended the first performance of “Hole in the World,” written by Henley in response to the terrorist attacks, and then bragged about meeting the rock legend afterward.

“We attended an Eagles concert when Hole in the World written in honor of the victims of 9/11 was 1st sung,” Falwell tweeted. “I told Don Henley in person it was a Christian song – until we learn to love one another we will never reach the Promised Land. God bless the victims’ families & 1st responders.”

Other Twitter users were unimpressed.

Axios reporter Jonathan Swan interviewed Woodwood on "Axios on HBO" for an episode that aired on Monday.

Swan noted Woodward recorded Trump admitting that COVID was dangerous on March 19th, but instead of immediately warning America by publishing the bombshell, he saved it for his book Rage -- which was published on September 15th.

Woodward claimed that the world already knew the facts on coronavirus by the 19th of March, but Swan pushed back and pointed out that many of Trump's supporters ignore reality and instead trust Trump -- even when his views are not backed up by science or reality.
