When Donald Trump woke up this morning, he had one job to do: tweet about the anniversary of 9/11 to honor the memories of the nearly 3,000 lives lost, including those of first responders who gave their lives to save others. In true Trump style, he failed miserably. As a president, he couldn’t even just stick to that.
Other than retweeting his social media director’s message, reminding everyone that his legal representative, Rudy Giuliani, can still ride his 9/11 fame even today, and announcing that it’s been 17 years! since 9/11, Trump focused mostly on himself and his attempts to divide our country 17 years after Americans came together as one to mourn and move forward after the tragedy of that day.
Instead, Trump began with last night’s quotes from one of his Fox News sycophants, Lou Dobbs, who reminded everyone that we’ve seen no proof of collusion in a case against Trump that has not yet been completed and for which no report has yet been released. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, it seems, is not like Trump. He doesn’t rant and rail over every piece of evidence he comes across even before fully knowing what it means. He’s not an attention-grabber.
We have no evidence yet because the investigation isn’t finished. Today, of all days, this is not what is foremost on America’s minds, anyway.
Of course, there are more attacks on the FBI and DOJ to be tweeted, because what better day to do so than on the day those two agencies worked diligently and heroically to address the threats that were posed to this nation on September 11, 2001.
What should keep Americans awake at night under Trump is the thought of any other tragedy like 9/11 happening again. Trump can’t even manage to address the memory of that day. What on earth would he do if he were president during this kind of attack?
Twitter was furious with Trump’s incompetence. See some of their comments below:
