The 20 Best #LostTrumpHistory Tweets After Trump Lies About Being At Ground Zero On 9/11

After Trump’s ridiculously offensive speech just before signing the long-delayed (by Republicans) 9/11 first responder healthcare compensation bill, Twitter is trolling him with the hashtag #LostTrumpHistory for trying to claim that he was at Ground Zero with the first responders right after the attacks. Because if he’s going to make up history, why not just make up all the history, and have a little fun while doing it?

“I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder, but I was down there,” Trump claimed in his speech to the actual 9/11 first responders. “I spent a lot of time down there with you.”

In reality, Trump was in his Trump Tower six miles away from Ground Zero on the day of the attacks, bragging in a call-in interview that his tower was now the tallest in New York City. Even that wasn’t accurate, but it’s messed up to the max either way.

In the days following, he did spend some time near Ground Zero. You know, where all the cameras were. There, he claimed to the press that he had sent “hundreds of men” to help with the rescue and recovery efforts, but that was also almost certainly a lie.

Trump will definitely be in the history books, but probably not in the way he wants.
