CNN has been telling Americans that President Donald Trump’s remarks about 9/11 are all lies, especially his claim that there were news reports about Muslims celebrating in New Jersey. CNN’s panel guests also told the audience the president is a big fat liar who was never at Ground Zero and certainly didn’t help anyone there. Well, that angered one 9/11 hero who just set them all straight. You’ll love this.
This week CNN held panel discussions to tell Americans that President Trump is a huge liar and that everything he says about 9/11 is false. Chris Cillizza, one of CNN’s biggest Trump-haters, was doing the same thing on their website.
“Trump is a serial exaggerator and fabricator — about everything. So why should we be surprised that he has a long track record of suggesting he was someone involved in the cleanup after the 9/11 attacks when it’s clear he wasn’t?” Cillizza wrote.
“We shouldn’t be surprised,” he added. “But we should be appalled that the President of the United States is willing to say things like this — especially to a crowd who has given so much to the country in its darkest hours.”
Well, one 9/11 hero read Chris Cillizza’s report, and he couldn’t believe how CNN could blatantly lie about the president.
He was the top cop of New York, Bernie Kerik — who served as New York City’s police commissioner at the time. And if anyone knows what was going on at Ground Zero, it’s this man.
CNN and Vox characterized Trump as mendacious following Trump’s recollection of 9/11 and its aftermath during public remarks on Monday regarding his signing into law an extension of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.
“I was sitting there when he said that,” shared Kerik of Trump’s aforementioned remarks. “I didn’t think one thing of the remarks, because I know they’re true. … I must have seen [Donald Trump] down there — I don’t know — I want to say between five and ten times walking through Ground Zero, talking to the first responders — motivating, inspiring, whatever you want to call it — and he wasn’t the only one.”
Kerik continued, “There’s a litany list of people, celebrities [and] sports figures … that came down to Ground Zero constantly. These are the people — the celebrities and sports figures — they went through there constantly trying to inspire the men and women that were down there.” Politicians “normally didn’t come down [to Ground Zero] unless there was a camera around,” added Kerik.
First responders worked 24/7 for six months at Ground Zero following the attacks, stated Kerik.
“Keep in mind, from the point of attack on, everybody was put on tours of twelve hours,” Kerik said. “You worked twelve hours on and twelve hours off. There were no days off. This was an around-the-clock operation that went on for six months. We needed all the support we could get. We needed inspiration and motivation for the people that were down there, and [Donald Trump] came down there constantly to show his support.”
Kerik went on, “I ran into [Donald Trump] numerous times. He thanked me. He thanked us for what we were doing, and then I heard his comments yesterday. I didn’t think a thing of it. I was sitting right in front of him, and then I saw an article last night written by somebody at CNN criticizing him for saying that he was there with an inference that he was not, which is a lie. He was there. … I was there at Ground Zero when [Donald Trump] would walk through there and thank everybody he came across.”
Trump is “very supportive of law enforcement,” Kerik said. “Nobody has to tell me how supportive [Donald Trump] is of the men and women in law enforcement and the military. I know. I’ve known the guy 25 years.”
Kerik added, “In fact, what the article didn’t tell you is that [Donald Trump] sent a ton of people down there that worked for him to assist in the volunteer efforts.”
“But this is just another way to attack the president, and I think it’s pretty sickening,” concluded Kerik. “It demonstrates how low these people will go to attack him.”
What about the claim there were news reports that Muslims in New Jersey were celebrating as the planes crashed into the buildings?
Luckily, a video was found showing local CBS News (WCBS-TV in New York) reporting on Sept. 16, 2001, which completely vindicates Trump’s claim.
The CBS news anchor says: “Just a couple of blocks away from that Jersey City apartment the F.B.I. raided yesterday and had evidence removed, there is another apartment building, one that investigators told me, quote, was swarming with suspects — suspects who I’m told were cheering on the roof when they saw the planes slam into the Trade Center.”
This is why the president calls CNN fake news.
It’s time all Americans are made aware of just how utterly unfair the mainstream media is to President Trump. A report like this one is devastating to the Democrats. Fair-minded Americans who may not be Trump supporters at this time must get this information.
Only then can they make an informed decision about who is lying to Americans and who is telling the truth. If CNN along with the majority of the mainstream media will lie so blatantly about something like this, it’s safe to assume they are lying to you about everything else.
