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.”

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle: The markets finally realized the economic crisis is linked to the health crisis

MSNBC market expert Stephanie Ruhle told Brian Williams on Wednesday that the reason Americans saw the stock market fall this week is that they have finally realized that things aren't getting any better.

Williams asked if the numbers this week are different from normal pre-election years.

"This is quite different," said Ruhle. "The markets have woken up to the fact that this health crisis is directly linked to the economic crisis. The markets can't thrive when we don't have a national plan to deal with the coronavirus. And you look at the GDP, you know that tomorrow, you led the show with it, the president is going to say, 'We're back, baby! With the greatest economy ever.' That's not the case. We have been seeing improvements. We are on the road to recovery. But even if we get 30 percent, 35 percent GDP, which would be positive, it's far from saying we're back."

Brett Kavanaugh revised his Wisconsin ruling after Vermont official’s demands — but it still contains the lies

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice revised his Wisconsin opinion after a Vermont official complained that he misrepresented the way the state dealt with the election amid the pandemic. The problem, however, is that his corrections only cleaned up the sloppy language.

While it no longer appears like a high school mock trial assignment, it still lies about the example he gave in the Vermont details.
