Is Donald Trump Committing Political Suicide By Hosting Saudi Sponsored Golf Tournament ?
The man interviewed by Hallie Jackson on her show flat out said that Trump is a liar. Trump told ESPN today that no one has yet gotten to the bottom of 9-11, seemingly as an excuse for why he thinks its ok for him to host the Saudi backed tournament.  "No one knows".

A few minutes ago the son of a man killed on 9-11 in the Twin Towers was on MSNBC. 

He was being interviewed about the golf tournament being hosted by Donald Trump at his New Jersey golf course. The tournament is part of the Saudi Arabian backed professional golf initiative, known as LIV. 

The man interviewed by Hallie Jackson on her show flat out said that Trump is a liar. Trump told ESPN today that no one has yet gotten to the bottom of 9-11, seemingly as an excuse for why he thinks its ok for him to host the Saudi backed tournament.  "No one knows".

But the 9-11 family member says this is a lie. Trump, while was president, refused to release FBI files on the subject, but President Biden has made them available and the 9-11 family member says they clearly indicate that 12 members of the Saudi government aided al-Qaida in the attacks on 9-11. He also says Trump wont win a Republican primary state after this betrayal of the 9-11 families is publicized. 

For Donald Trump, no greed is too big or too small, he loves all of it.

The allegation is that Trump is betraying the 9-11 families out of greed.

That's probably all the hair he has. I bet he's completely bald on top. Doesn't look he's been to Walgreens for Miss Clairol in awhile, either

Asked what he would say to the 9/11 families protesting the Saudi-backed LIV   golf   tournament at Bedminster,   Trump   says: "well, nobody's gotten to the bottom of 9/11 unfortunately, and they should have." espn.com/video/clip?id=…

Give him six more months and he'll be fully "Bush knocked down the towers" Quoted tweet from @bensiegel:   Trump   tells ESPN "nobody's gotten to the bottom of 9/11, unfortunately" when asked about criticism he's received from 9/11
To Republicans everywhere: Once again I give you your dear leader. You must be so proud.👇
As he cheers on the Saudi LIV   Golf   event at his course,   Trump   tells families of 9/11 victims that we “still haven’t gotten to the bottom of 9/11.” Seriously. He said that.

Absolutely galling. His idiocy reflects poorly on our country by the day.

This is all I can find so far. Still looking. 

John Bruce Eagleson, who lost his father along with the 2,996 others who died in the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001, tells CNN that the choice to host the LIV Golf tournament is "unconscionable.” Specifically, the course itself is "in the backyard of where 750 New Jersey residents were murdered." "The former President correctly speculated in 2016 that Saudi Arabia knocked down the Towers, and now the FBI has released the documents to prove him right… yet he is choosing money over America. So much for America First. A sad day,” Eagleson told CNN .

Trump: A Noun, A Verb, And A Giant F*ck You To 9/11 Victims' Families

Evan Hurst 6-8 minutes   7/28/2022


Donald Trump knows a lot about 9/11. He knows he was living in New York at the time. (Correct.) He knows that after 9/11, he had the tallest building in lower Manhattan. ( Not even close. ) Trump   said on 9/11   he saw on TV that there were thousands of Muslims cheering about the devastation in Jersey City. (Maybe in his ketchup-stained hallucinations.)

The one thing he doesn't know is who did it. Maybe it's a mental block, because of that time when Barack Obama   murdered Osama bin Laden   with one hand   literally at the same time   he was making jerkoff motions toward Trump with the other at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Maybe the memory of who did 9/11 hurts him, for personal ego reasons.

At least that's the impression we got from   what Trump said today   at his Bedminster resort, where there is a Saudi-sponsored golf tournament happening. (Specifically, the LIV Golf series is sponsored by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, the overseer of which is Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.) Because when   American   golf orgs   refuse to hold tournaments   at golf courses owned by people who incited terrorist attacks against America, why not just do tournaments with countries whose homegrown hijackers   also   carried out terrorist attacks against America?

What? Too true? They probably have a lot to talk about.


Anyway, what Trump said was:

Former President   Donald Trump   told ESPN that “nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11” as he defended his decision to host the Saudi-backed LIV Golf series at his Bedminster course.

LOL, decaying old anti-American shithole, tell us more! Planned demolition?   Single-plane theory?

Trump defended his decision as he faces outrage from the families of 9/11 victims. He told ESPN the tournament’s Saudi sponsors “have been friends of mine for a long time.” He boosted the series as an “alternative” to the PGA, saying “nobody would’ve ever known there was gonna be a gold rush like this.”

What's that vague memory rushing back? That's right:

www.youtube.com

He was friends with them even when Crown Prince Bonesaw was having that   Washington Post   reporter Jamal Khashoggi   bonesawed to death!   They're just friends, OK? (And yes, we know there's been a whole thing with   Joe Biden's recent visit   to Saudi Arabia and his efforts to navigate the Saudi-American relationship. This grossness didn't start with Trump, nor did it end with him. However, Trump and   his son-in-law   Jared have been   particularly gross   about   doing naked cannonballs   into the deep end of the palace swimming pools in Riyadh with any goddamn Saudi sheik   who's DTF. )

Also, we are not a golf   aficionado , but we are pretty sure calling whatever low-rent Saudi tournament a simple "alternative" and saying there has been a "gold rush"   probably   carries about as much weight as when Trump says "there were a lot of people at my inauguration" or "I won the 2020 election" or "I won the 2016 election without reacharounds from Vladimir Putin."

Here is the full quote:

Nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11, unfortunately. And they should have. As to the maniacs that did that horrible thing to our city, to the country, to the world. So nobody’s really been there, but I can tell you that there are a lot of really great people that are out here today, and we’re gonna have a lot of fun, and we’re going to celebrate. Money’s going to charity, a lot of money’s going to charity, and you have really the best players in the world.

No, they really fucking goddamn did get to the bottom of it. There was a whole report from the 9/11 Commission, which is the type of commission that should have been set up to investigate the 1/6 Trump attack on the Capitol. (Trump's little accomplices in Congress   couldn't possibly   have let that happen.)

The attack wasn't ordered by Saudi Arabia, it was ordered by the allegedly wayward son of one of Saudi Arabia's richest families,   one that's BFFs   with the Saudi royal family, and carried out by 19 hijackers, 15 of whom were Saudi.

Of course, Mediaite points out that   in a 2016 interview,   Trump himself said that it wasn't the Iraqis who did 9/11 (correct), but rather "it was Saudi. Take a look at Saudi Arabia. Open the documents.” Perhaps he has forgotten about the documents.

Families of 9/11 victims have been pleading with Trump to cancel this tournament. But Trump has had answers for that too, and for the funding from Jared's old sleepover buddy Eddie "Bonesaw" Haskell as it relates to the bonesaw murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Mediaite directs us to a recent   Wall Street Journal   interview:

“I can say that from the standpoint of Khashoggi, that has died down so much,” Mr. Trump said. “It really seems to have totally died down.” “Nobody has asked me that question in months,” he added.

It's about him. It's not about whether it was gruesome and unforgivable how that happened on his watch and he didn't care, it's about whether anybody has tried to hold him accountable for it lately.

And here's the fuck you to the 9/11 victims' families:

“I don’t know much about the 9/11 families, I don’t know what is the relationship to this, and their very strong feelings, and I can understand their feelings,” he said. “I can’t really comment on that because I don’t know exactly what they’re saying, and what they’re saying who did what.”

He doesn't know them or why they're upset, but he definitely understands it but he doesn't know what they're saying and just fuck this traitorous piece of trash and his goddamned babbling.

We do want you to see   how disgusting   he looked today, though:

Wow, they do   not   make a cream that will fix that.

So a comment about the LIV golf tournaments and about the Prince are obviously ONLY on topic for JR.

Good to know

The only thing that matters to Trump is money, no matter how insulting it is to anyone and especially 9/11 victims and survivors.

I feel the same way about the golfers that are joining the LIV, hope the assholes dig a hole they can't get out of.

“…and especially 9/11 victims and survivors.”

Lest we forget his first response to the tragedy (to paraphrase)…’it seems now I own the tallest building in lower Manhattan.’

Callous does not begin to describe the black heart that bleats in this most fractured of beings.

And this...

he was one of many wealthy individuals and businesses who used a loophole in a program intended to help smaller companies in lower Manhattan recover after the Sept. 11 tragedy.

Have you let the golf clubs in Chicago and Portland know of your disapproval, too, or is that reserved strictly for Trump?
