    Because she's the first lady??? If she didn't know it prior, could she not learn it? It's one sentence. I would think it's expected.

    Imagine if a muslim owned that building and said that statement at that time.

    Now comment on the situation...

    https://www.nj.com/news/2015/12/excl...ome_musli.html

    Media outlets, after scouring archived news stories and video footage, could not find verified accounts of Jersey City Muslims rejoicing.

    But in a new examination by NJ Advance Media, a police officer who worked on 9/11 and residents on the outskirts of Journal Square say they witnessed small pockets of people celebrating before the groups dispersed or were broken up by authorities.

    The NJ Advance Media inquiry, encompassing more than two dozen interviews conducted since Nov. 25, found Trump's broad assertion that thousands of people cheered to be baseless. At the same time, the inquiry provides the first credible indication of at least two modest celebrations, as described by on-the-record sources who say they witnessed the behavior.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    No he's not. This is standard, run of the mill Special.

    PSD: where the moderators consistently cave to crybaby tattletales and it's a lot safer to be openly racist, hateful, and ignorant than to be a little rude to the racist, hateful, and ignorant

    Wait, are you basing that off the “anonymous sources” being referred to in that article? I didn’t see any names or direct quotes. So in this instance we’re to believe these anonymous sources, but not in other instances where it could damage Trump?

    So what you're saying is that you actually didn't read the article. If you did read it, your memory retention is horrible.

    The article says that eye witness accounts state that there were 2 small pockets of people celebrating.

    Trump's claim was he personally witnessed thousands of Muslims cheer 9/11. The only part of that which is true is that some people (presumably Muslims) cheered. It certainly wasn't thousands and Trump certainly didn't witness it (since there is no actual footage of it and he was not there at the time).

    So if by exaggerate you mean he lied about 2/3 of the claims of his statement. Sure he "exaggerated", in the same way I'm "exaggerating" when I say I personally saw Trump have sex with his daughter while they were doing a TV interview...

    I know he's not the first person to think of using Medicare to bargain for drug prices. Which probably tells me that this isn't going to be around very long and is likely illegal. It could result in the government getting sued and forced to pay money bac. But that wouldn't happen until after the election.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.
    _____

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!
