All of Trump’s lies about 9/11 exposed in damning CNN segment

(AFP / SAUL LOEB)

CNN’s John Avlon on Friday busted President Donald Trump for the multiple lies that he’s told about the 9/11 terrorist attacks that occurred 19 years ago.

In a “Reality Check” segment that compiled multiple statements Trump has made about 9/11 over the years, Avlon first took the president to task for claiming that he helped clear rubble at the site of the World Trade Center after it collapsed after being struck by airplanes.

“There’s no record of Donald Trump being at the pile at ground zero,” said Avlon, who at the time was working as a speechwriter for then-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Avlon then slammed Trump for slandering Muslim residents in New Jersey, whom he falsely accused of celebrating the terrorist attack in New York, and also hammered the president for lying about 9/11-related charitable donations.

“Trump said he’d donate $10,000 to the Twin Towers Fund — there’s no record of that,” he said. “There’s actually no record of 9/11-related donations from the alleged billionaire before he ran for president. And with so many firefighter funerals held at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, just four blocks from Trump Tower, there’s also no record of Trump attending a service to pay his respects.”

The Wall Street Journal has uncovered information that one of President Donald J. Trump's HHS assistant secretaries, Michael Caputo, was plotting to deliver a super secret COVID-19 vaccine to Santa Claus performers - including Mrs. Claus and the elves - before the general public. The proposed $250 million campaign would have included performers agreeing to promote the vaccine to all the boys and girls who came to sit on their laps at Christmastime.

“This was our greatest hope for Christmas 2020, and now it looks like it won’t happen,” Ric Erwin, chairman of the Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas, told the Journal.

Conservative New Hampshire paper breaks 100-year tradition of GOP presidential endorsements with nod to Biden

Published

In it's first Democratic endorsement in 100 years, a conservative New Hampshire newspaper is breaking tradition by backing Joe Biden for president.

The New Hampshire Union Leader released a statement in their publication on Sunday defending their decision.

"There is no love lost between this newspaper and President Donald J. Trump. The Union Leader was very quickly dismissed by then-candidate Trump after we failed to bestow on him our endorsement in the Republican primary four years ago, "the statement said. "We were hopeful with Trump’s win that he might change, that the weight and responsibility of the Oval Office might mold a more respectful and presidential man. We have watched with the rest of the world as the mantle of the presidency has done very little to change Trump while the country and world have changed significantly."

Published

Josh Holmes currently serves as a top adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). While much of the GOP's fate is on the chopping block this election cycle with closer races than anticipated and little help from the president himself, Holmes told Politico he thinks "you could have a whole bunch of scenarios play out on Election Day." The worst-case scenario for the GOP, he said, is "potentially catastrophic."
