Outrage erupts as 'lying buffoon' Trump turns Pentagon 9/11 commemoration 'into an infomercial about himself'

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:
