On this day we remember the victims of the horrific attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. During an anniversary event of the tragic attack, Donald Trump referred to the victims as “9/11 members.”
There’s a big difference between a “member” of something and someone who lost their lives to a tragic attack. Trump doesn’t see the difference.

Twitter users decided to call Trump out over his choice of words.
I just can't stand him one more minute, one more day. TV off at our house.

He looks and sounds extremely medicated. Triple dose of tranquilizers today in that drug cocktail. My goodness.

And he's not even phoning in that performance; if he's going for a zombie vibe, he's bigly succeeding. I think he's saying "hollowed" ground, not "hallowed" ground. Perfect for a zombie vibe.

Is this when Trump brings up how his tower is now the tallest? He doesn't give a shit. His handlers got him out to read a script.

This is embarrassing and really rather fatalistic and not uplifting at all.
