Thousands of Muslims were dancing around that day enjoying their Big Gulps, or something. Let’s not be too hard on him though, it’s hard for senior citizens to remember events from 15 years ago.
Donald Trump tried praised the heroes of 9/11 at a Buffalo rally Monday — but botched the compliment by saying cops and firefighters responded on “7-Eleven.”
After an impassioned introduction by former New York Jets coach — and current Buffalo Bills coach — Rex Ryan, the GOP front-runner fumbled his remarks while launching into a defense of New York values.
“It’s very close to my heart,” Trump told the huge rally.
“I watched our police and our firemen down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down, and I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.”
There’s no known record of him being anywhere near there, but why bother with the facts? The moron also has difficulty with other more recent events that never happened.
The crowd seemed to let Trump slide on his convenience-store reference, but it wasn’t the only gaffe.
He later praised Ryan for winning AFC championships while with the Jets — who won no such titles during his tenure.
“He’s a great, great football coach,” Trump said. “You know he won the championships in New York, AFC, I think, twice.”
If he won championships in New York, why the hell is he coaching in Buffalo?
