Donald Trump marks 9/11 by stealing the valor of those who were at Ground Zero

Donald Trump marks 9/11 by stealing the valor of those who were at Ground Zero

Stolen Valor Act of 2005 made it a crime to wear unearned military decorations. Trump claiming he was there at Ground Zero "soon after" 9/11 is stealing valor under false pretenses from those who really were there.

Does anybody seriously believe that a celebrity like Donald Trump would have gone unnoticed had he been there "to help" at Ground Zero? Even if you believe that, does anybody believe that Donald Trump would have lifted a finger at Ground Zero without billing the government?

Trump again said he helped at ground zero immediately following the 9/11 attacks
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump honored thousands that died as a result of the Sept. 11 terror attacks during remarks at the Pentagon Wednesday.

But the president also didn't miss a chance to again claim he helped in the aftermath of the terror attacks at ground zero.

"I was looking out of a window from a building at Midtown Manhattan directly at the World Trade Center when I saw a second plane at a tremendous speed go into the second tower. It was then that I realized the world was going to change. I was no longer going to be, and it could never, ever be that innocent place that I thought it was," Trump said.

"Soon after, I went down to Ground Zero with men who worked for me to try to help in any little way that we could," he continued. "We were not alone. So many others were scattered around trying to do the same. They were all trying to help."

Trump has made several versions of this claim in the past but there is a lack of evidence that Trump helped or hired people to help on the days following the terrorist attack.

Richard Alles, who was the New York Fire Department battalion chief during the Sept. 11 attack, has repeatedly said that he does not remember Trump having a presence at ground zero.

Not only could he have not gone unnoticed, but with his galaxy-sized ego, he would have made an overtly exerted effort to ensure that he wasn't unnoticed.

The man is literally one of the most disgusting excuses for a human being on the face of the planet.
