Right now in New Zealand its September 11th...The world is watching in dismay....and they see it....




Donald Trumpís bizarre quotes about 9/11 before becoming president

On the day of the 9/11 attacks, Donald Trump claimed that the destruction of the World Trade Center meant that one of his buildings was now the tallest in lower Manhattan. His bragging was not only tasteless, it was untrue.

Despite claiming he knew hundreds of victims of the attack, Trump never named or expressed condolences for any of them. However, years later, Trump did tweet, ďI would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th.Ē

It may be a special date, but Trump has bragged he has since gotten better ratings than any of the broadcasts about the tragedy that day.

And, in the aftermath of the 2001 terror attack, Trump made not a single charitable donation that can be verified to any of the not-for-profit groups that provided aid to survivors, rescue workers, or the families of cops and firemen who died trying to save others, However, Trump did take $150,000 in federal aid for economic damages from a disaster that occured one mile away from any of his buildings.

2. Two things:

1. The graphic in The New Zealand Herald is brilliant.

2. The phone interview with Donald Trump is just another example of how Donald J. Trump is the center of his own universe, suffers from unbounded narcissism, and is a shallow and sick man who is incapable of empathy.

3. No. 2

Yet tens of millions of Americans-- who consider themselves "patriots"-- voted for and support this egotistical and stupid man.

Baffling.

5. Political Voyeurism

They get their rocks off by watching Trump and fantasizing about doing it themselves.

13. Good take. Failures seeing themselves as successful

in another failure whom they know they falsely see as successful but hate themselves so much it doesn't matter.
it just feels good and is another way of hiding from their own useless lives.

In fact the really are NOT even alive. They are shadows seeing shadows on the walls of a deep, dark cave.

15. If Trump hadn't inherited $300 million from his father

He'd be another of those failures. I suspect a salesman.

17. Used cars....

without a doubt. You must have a complete lack of ethics to sell used cars. I tried it briefly in the mid-70s. I didn't have the "killer instinct" needed to be successful at it.

9. The power of reality TV

and its ability to make even the most reprehensible characters seem normal, even laudable.

14. Yep. The 'Duck Dynasty' crowd...

flocked to Don-the-Con like flies to a fresh dog turd. Honey-Boo-Boo had run it's course, Duck Dynasty ended shortly after his inauguration, and the mouth breathing, slack-jawed, booger eating morons had to latch onto something quick, so they started a new cult; one that worships, insensitivity, hatred, braggadocio, and anti-intellectualism. In Donald Trump they found their patron saint.

4. "His bragging was not only tasteless, it was untrue."

...pretty much sums up the orange douchebag in a nutshell.

6. It is simply beyond intelligent belief...

that the United States has, sitting in the Oval Office, this stain on humanity.

Trying to wrap oneís head around this hideous reality is enough to make any decent personís brain implode.

Our souls may be seriously wounded for our lifetimes and though so many of us hang on and resist/revolt/refuse defiantly for the saving of our next generation of souls to come, the ache can be momentarily debilitating.

The only expectations about this wretched manís behavior today were already scraping the bottom of the human barrel. He lives down to these expectations with every breath he takes.

Let us clutch the real heroes and heroines in our hearts and memories today.

I think things cannot get any stranger, but yet it seems everyday is stranger than the day before.

8. The republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief doesn't get IT

at all. What a poor excuse for a leader the republicans and russians have inflicted upon America. A poor excuse indeed.
