This is absolutely the most ridiculous thing Donald Trump has ever said. I mean, I just can’t get over how imbecilic it is, and it’s not the conspiracy theory that we’ve been hearing for years. It’s Trump, in an attempt to build himself up, blaming George W. Bush for the twin towers falling simply because he was president at the time:
DAILY MAIL – Asked by Bloomberg Television anchor Stephanie Ruhle how Americans might trust him to keep them safe, the Republican presidential front-runner bristled at the mention of Bush’s role as comforter-in-chief after 9/11, and President Barack Obama’s similar position following the December 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
‘OK, I think I have a bigger heart than all of them,’ he said. ‘I think I’m much more competent than all of them.’
‘When you talk about George Bush – I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time.’
Ruhle jumped in, saying, ‘Hold on! You can’t blame George Bush for that.’
‘He was president, OK?’ Trump responded. ‘Blame him or don’t blame him, but he was president. The World Trade Center came down during his reign.’
If you want to hear it with your own ears, skip ahead to 32:55 near the end of this interview:
I’m sorry, but what a puke. What an idiotic thing to say. Most Democrats don’t even blame Bush for 9/11 unless they are crazy conspiracy theorists. Even the CNBC interviewer was stunned at his statement.
This probably isn’t going to go over well with most people and it shouldn’t.
UPDATE: Here’s the video by itself of Trump saying this:
