Trump Disgraces America By Mentioning "Rigged Election" To NYC First Responders on 9-11 Anniversary


Trump went into NYC on 9-11 in order to stroke his ego and pretend he is still president. That was bad enough as he preened his way through a visit with firefighters and police officers at a city police precinct. 

But the travesty came when he said this at the NYPD's 17th precinct

" “The Taliban was on hold,” he said. “I dealt with the top guy Abdul and there was nothing he was going to be doing with us, and all of a sudden we have a rigged election and all of a sudden we flee Afghanistan."

The NYPD backs Trump as most police departments do. Many police forces are disproportionately populated with racists , and I'm sure NYPD is no different. Trump even bragged that NY's largest police union had endorsed him last year. 

His using the occasion of 9-11 to lie yet again about the election was considered so egregious even by Fox News that they were compelled to fact check him on the air. 

“He did not miss any opportunities to air grievances including claiming that the election was rigged, which it was not,” anchor Arthelle Neville said. “It has been proven in court multiple times. "

Fox News cut away from Trumps 9/11 remarks in order to point out he was lying about the election.

Fox News Anchor Fact-Checks Donald Trump After He Mentions ‘Rigged Election’ During 9/11 Remarks to NYPD

original

Fox News anchor   Arthel Neville   fact-checked former President   Donald Trump ‘s “rigged election” claims on Saturday after he reiterated   the false rhetoric   while visiting New York City Police Department’s 17th Precinct to honor Sept. 11 first responders.

Load Error

“I grew up with you and you are New York’s finest,” Trump told the officers. “You’re incredible people and I know many of you, and I appreciated during the election you know that New York City Police endorsed Trump — you know that right — first time they’ve ever endorsed a candidate. They told me first time, maybe they do it every time, I don’t know…. And it’s a great honor. Having that endorsement meant more to me than anything.”

(The NYPD itself did not endorse a candidate, but   several unions, including the largest   — the Police Benevolent Association — offered an endorsement.)

Trump then opened the floor for questions from the officers, joking that they could be “a star” since there was “fake news” behind them covering the event.

“That’s a tough question. Actually for me it’s an easy question,” Trump said when asked if he plans to run again in 2024. “I mean I know what I’m going to do, but we are not supposed to be talking about it yet, from the standpoint of campaign finance laws which frankly are ridiculous.”

“I think you are going to be happy, let me put it that way,” he later added. “I think you are going to be very happy.”

Trump boasted about the economy under his administration, and regarding Afghanistan, he claimed they “had everybody on hold.”

“The Taliban was on hold,” he said. “I dealt with the top guy Abdul and there was nothing he was going to be doing with us, and all of a sudden we have a rigged election and all of a sudden we flee Afghanistan. And that’s why I’m saying what timing, what horrible timing, the 20th anniversary [of Sept. 11] and I watched the speeches and not one person spoke about the fact that three days ago, we fled Afghanistan and we left Americans behind and others too.”

President   Joe Biden   ordered all troops to leave Afghanistan by Aug. 31, largely blaming the short timeline for withdrawal on   a deal negotiated with the Taliban by Trump .

Fox News cut away from Trump’s remarks as he fielded more questions, and Neville made a point to rebuke his “rigged election” comment.

“He did not miss any opportunities to air grievances including claiming that the election was rigged, which it was not,” Neville said. “It has been proven in court multiple times. It has been proven that the election was not rigged by elected election officials, but it started out on a good note. Former president saying that he grew up with the firefighters [and police officers] because he’s from New York and he thanked them for their service.”

He was campaigning, and lying like always, of course.  It is so shameful.  He is foul and offensive.  A total disgrace.

If he is the Republican (or Trumpian"?) candidate in 2024, be prepared for a repeat of the election being stolen from him and the resulting trivial lawsuits, maybe even another January 6th insurrection.

Maybe you should all go take care of the knuckle dragging moron you put in the WH; instead of concentrating on Trump 24/7? Seems Joe couldn't maintain decorum (what else is new) during the 9/11 ceremony and had to give a shout out to someone; or maybe he was arguing with them (who the hell knows with the MSM media assholes giving him cover). Real damn presidential.

This is what Lou Dobbs said about the photo:

And Newsmax's Greg Kelly:

The way Obama is looking at him says that it may have been an “inappropriate” moment.

Again, I don't know what Joe was motivated by here to make such a bizarre facial expression at a somber ceremony, but I will update this piece if I find out.

It wasn't just Obama that was staring down Sleepy China Joe Biden. Michelle and Hillary didn't look pleased. Jill was talking with someone else instead of making sure her husband stayed in line. She is probably desperate for any intelligent conversation she can get after having to take care of Joe for the last several years.

But yeah, Trump. jrSmiley_98_smiley_image.gif

You got a lot of inferred mileage out of a single photograph.    Looks very inappropriate but I do not know the actual story behind it so I, personally, am not going to invent a narrative to fill the gap.

But this article is about Trump and it does indeed contain the facts (no invented narrative required).   You did not even comment on that.    Do you have no opinion on Trump gratuitously repeating his Big Lie at a publicly covered event during a solemn day of remembrance for the thousands who lost their lives on 9/11?

Another here seeded his visit as if he believes Trump was there out of the goodness of his heart.  This was just a photo op and another chance to push the big lie.  I hope that word of his behavior gets around and that any future visits are denied or if he does show up unannounced, everyone should just leave the room where he can push the big lie to crickets.

Meanwhile Mike Lindell's fortune's keep slipping.

In addition to the lawsuits against him, he just sold his $2.5M personal jet for an undisclosed amount.

His venture into making the masks he thought conservatives would buy only from him, has lost $7M.

He can't even give them away.  He's discounting his pillow by at least 66%.

WFIE channel 14, a local station sent a team out to report - they claim to have seen less than 300 people total

although 10,000 tickets had been for sale for $150 and up.

He did that in France also using the graves of the fallen as a backdrop to trash talk others.  Everything is about him in his tiny demented brain which is about the size of a moldy walnut.

Trump is bad enough.  Melania is even worse because she is there with him on everything but doesn't like his kids.  Now that is class.
