Trump’s 9/11 Statement is a Disgusting Display of Narcissism and an Insult to America

It’s been twenty years since the United States was struck in a tragic act of terrorism. On September 11, 2001, the nation was changed in ways it could not have previously imagined. It was a day of unthinkable loss. But it was also a day that was followed by weeks and months and years of inspiring expressions of heroism, hope, and unity.

9/11

On this day of remembrance, four American presidents of both political parties – Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden – came together to pay tribute to those who were lost and those who worked tirelessly and selflessly to save lives and rebuild.

Unfortunately, there is another former president who simply doesn’t have the compassion to participate in such displays of empathy and patriotism. On this day Donald Trump released a statement that affirmed his utter absence of the basic human decency that defines America in times of hardship.

Trump’s offensive “tribute” to the victims and heroes of 9/11 lasted for about 24 seconds of the video that ran 1:44. He then spent the remainder of his remarks attacking President Biden. He began by blaming Biden for how the war in Afghanistan ended, despite the fact that it was Trump’s plan that led to the Taliban’s victory. He released 5,000 of their fighters and lifted all of the financial sanctions in what his own National Security Advisor lambasted as a ā€œsurrender agreementā€.

Here’s a taste of Trump’s self-serving and anti-American ranting on a day that should be a solemn occasion (posted here by his spokes-shill, if you have the stomach for it):

“The leader of our country was made to look like a fool, and that can never be allowed to happen. It was caused by bad planning, incredible weakness, and leaders who truly didn’t understand what was happening. This is the 20th year of this war and should have been a year of victory, honor and strength. Instead Joe Biden and his inept administration surrendered in defeat. We will live on, but sadly our country will be wounded for a long period of time. We will struggle to recover from the embarrassment this incompetence has caused. Do not fear however. America will be made great again.”

So Trump thought it would be appropriate on this somber occasion to call our President a fool. He soiled the seriousness of the day with his jealousy and bitterness because Biden was able to accomplish goals that he could only whine about. And he abandon any effort to uplift the nation, instead fixating on the “embarrassment” and “incompetence” that he caused, but which he is impotently projecting onto Biden.

Also on this day, Trump thought it would be appropriate to “honor” its memory by partying with his boxing pals as he serves as the featured commentator for an exhibition match at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. For fifty bucks a pop Trump is turning this anniversary into another opportunity to fleece his cult disciples.

By contrast, President Biden is visiting all three sites that were struck on 9/11. He is paying his respects to the fallen, their families, and those who sacrificed in rescue, recovery and rebuilding efforts. Biden also released a statement that should put Trump to shame (if he were capable of it). Biden said in part that…

“Unity is what makes us who we are, America at its best. To me, that is the central lesson of September 11. It’s that at our most vulnerable, in the push and pull of all that makes us human, in the battle for the soul of America, unity is our greatest strength. Unity doesn’t mean we have to believe the same thing. But we must have a fundamental faith in each other and this nation.”

The differences between Biden’s respectful and hopeful message, and Trump’s selfish, envious, and hate-filled harangue, could not be more distinct. But it is also no more than we expect from a lying, unpatriotic, greedy, sociopathic, narcissist, who couldn’t care less about this country or its people.

  1. If you just remove the words “Joe Biden” from Trump’s statement and replace them with “Donald Trump,” it becomes a very, very accurate statement.

    • Yes. In fact, it would then be “perfect” – to use Trump’s favorite word, for himself.

  2. And still, there are some people who support this insanity?

    SMH – these people are irredeemable.

    • There are people who believe that the moon landing was faked and that the Earth is flat. And they can still vote (scary).

  3. “We will live on, but sadly our country will be wounded for a long period of time. We will struggle to recover from the embarrassment this incompetence has caused. Do not fear however. America will be made great again.ā€

    And once again, a Tyrant Worshiper uses words intended to belittle and condemn Joe Biden, and winds up kicking themselves in the butt. Everything the Lord God Orangeface said defines him.

    And he can go f*ck himself. Which he does anyway….

    • Well, yeah.
      Nobody else would do him!
      “Super-duper gross me out!”
      (Cue SoundFX of projectile vomiting)

  4. Can Trump just drop dead already? America is sick of you!

    • LMAO!
      Well, at least we, intelligent people, sure as hell are sick of that overblown ass!

  5. Your article is full of hatred, clearly he is a reflection of what you hate the most in yourself.

    • Trump Hates Everything Not Himself, If You Have Not Figured This Out.

  6. Oh good! Psycho-babble from the ‘Kingdum of Trumplings.’ (“Yayyy! My day is complete.”)

    FTR:
    There is not even an infinitesimal bit of Trump reflected anywhere in me!
