The mainstream, legacy media still plaguing the United States tried to dig up ancient history in media terms to prove that President Donald Trump lied. They claimed he lied about being at Ground Zero in the days following September 11, 2001.
(CNN)Donald Trump has always had a bit of Walter Mitty in him. But on Monday morning, in a speech to first responders and others impacted by the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, he took his fantastical memory of himself to new and not-at-all-appropriate heights.
“I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder,” Trump said. “But I was down there. I spent a lot of time down there with you.”
Let’s be clear about what Trump is doing here: He is associating himself — very closely — with the men and women who were the first to respond to planes being crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. People who continue to suffer health issues due to their jobs….
So, what was Trump actually doing on September 11, 2001?
One thing he was doing was getting on the phone with WWOR’s Alan Marcus to talk about the attacks and their aftermath. It was in that interview that Trump said this about a property — 40 Wall Street — that he owned:
“40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest—and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second-tallest. And now it’s the tallest.”
There’s just one problem with that claim coming from the MSM: there’s video proof – and a lot of it – that not only was Trump there at Ground Zero in the days following 9-11 but that he provided workers to help sift through the rubble that was once the World Trade Center.

Note that the interview posted by a person replying to the initial article was aired on a mainstream media outlet.
The hatred for President Trump is so intense, that the people who are charged with keeping the public informed about anything and everything happening around the world are willing to lie about the man’s claims rather than celebrate that this patriot gave of himself, his wealth and loaned his workers in the recovery efforts following the worst terrorist attack on American soil.
If this particular lie is so easy to disprove, what else are they lying about?
