President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump participated in a September 11th Pentagon Observance Ceremony on Wednesday morning.
But many viewers of the event noted that Trump spent a lot of time talking about himself during his speech at the ceremony.
“It was a day filled with shock, horror, sorrow, and righteous fury. I vividly remembered when I first heard the news. I was sitting at home watching a major business television show early that morning. Jack Welch, the legendary head of General Electric, was about to be interviewed when all of a sudden they cut away,” the president said.
“At first there were different reports, it was a boiler fire. But I knew that boilers aren’t at the top of a building. It was a kitchen explosion… Nobody really knew what happened. There was great confusion,” Trump continued.
“I was looking out of a window from a building in midtown Manhattan directly at the World Trade Center when I saw a second plane at a tremendous speed go into the second tower. It was then that I realized the world was going to change.
“I was no longer going to be, and it could never ever be, that innocent place that I thought it was. Soon after, I went down to ground zero with men who work for me to try to help in any little way that we could,” Trump said.
Twitter users were quick to express their outrage about Trump’s speech:
Donald Trump: “I vividly remember when I first heard the news. I was sitting at home watching a major business television show”
In 2015, Donald Trump claimed he was in “Jersey City, New Jersey where thousands & thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down”

How does Donald Trump dare to turn a memorial speech at the Pentagon into an infomercial about himself. Who cares where he says he was. He is a scourge on America n democracy.

Trump just talked abt himself at the ceremony & how he went down to ground zero & helped. Maggie, is there any proof of this? Anyway, in the past, he said he was busy watching ppl in NJ celebrating in the streets. Don’t know how you can talk to him. He’s such a liar & disgusting.

And of course @realDonaldTrump just HAS to insert himself into the 9/11 tragedy. During his “speech” this morning he talked how he ‘and some people who worked for him” went down to Ground Zero to help in whatever little way we could”. Little is right – the ASSHOLE WASN”T THERE!!!

sometimes I forget how low the bar is now and then I hear Trump described as “somber and reflective” for reading off a teleprompter without shitting himself and throwing the feces at bystanders

Trump, at the Pentagon today, once again falsely claims that he went down to Ground Zero to help first responders. I would show a pic of this but there are NONE.

Caught a glimpse of trump’s 9/11 remarks and it made me so angry that this greedy, lying buffoon was doing so. Lying about helping first responders. Lying about muslims cheering. Bragging about his building being the tallest. #NeverForget

The speech at the Pentagon was the MOST SHAMEFUL DISGRACEFUL example of Trumps insanity. He went to ground zero to help. LIE He watched the plane hit the tower, LIE, he saw 1000s of Arabs dancing in the street LIE. I am physically sick after that self serving diatribe. Shame

Former acting CIA director explains why Trump’s inaction on Russian bounty scandal will make things worse
It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.
Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.
Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Trump tells Fox News the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign on Fifth Avenue is like he’s being ‘prosecuted’
President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
