Most people just like myself as we got out of bed l sat back drinking my coffee and started to reflect on where I was on 9/11 17 years ago. It really did consume my thoughts and for a long time I reflected on the events of that day as it unfolded on TV. Watching those planes fly into the twin towers just totally consumed me from what those people inside those buildings were going through. Not only on that day 17 years ago till today I still feel the same those same emotions. That’s all I could think about.

Although I did not know anybody personally that died I did have a good friend that I played golf with and we were both invovled with construction in the New England area and I did reach out to him in a text today. I remember attending his brothers funeral and met his brothers wife and three small children. It was an emotional day for that family and the church service there was not a dry eye in the place. It was amazing the number of contractors that showed up that day in support of Rick and his family.

So today I promised myself I would not listen to what Trump had to say because it would be meaningless. Only because I remember what Trump had said in the following days 17 years ago. But as I do everyday I like to read his early morning tweets as my way to start out the day with a Little comedy.

Here are the comments of Donald Trump as the days unfolded during 9/11 17 years ago.

Trump Quote on tape: I knew hundreds of people killed on 9/11 many were my friends. But Trump never attended any funerals.

Trump Quote: I personally witnessed hundreds of Muslims in New Jersey dancing in the streets celebrating as the Twin towers collapsed. When he was in his office watching the events unfold. And when investigated there was no evidence that this celebration took place. And no news reports showing anything remotely that showed this. So personally he is clearly lying.

Trump Quote: Trump himself called into WWOR radio station and his first comment was ( I GUESS MY BUILDINGS ARE THE TALLEST NOW)

Trump on those days showed in true Trump fashion how extraordinarily how insensitive he really is.

Well let’s get back to Trumps first tweet of the day and it just continues to show the character of this man that occupies the White House.

So at 7:02 this morning as we all reflected on this day 17 years ago and where we were and the emotions we felt. But not Trump

Trumps 1st Tweet: (WE HAVE FOUND NOTHING TO SHOW COLLUSION BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE RUSSIANS. ABSOLUTLY NOTHING ZERO, BUT EVERYDAY WE GET MORE DOCUMENTION SHOWING COLLUSION BETWEEN THE FBI, DOJ, FOREIGN SPIES, AND THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN, AND RUSSIA, INCREDIBLE.) let’s wait till the Muellar investigation is complete.

I couldn’t believe what I was reading today, all he was thinking about today when he got up was to again attack the FBI, DOJ, and Clinton with more of the same lies. I really believe these 3 books and that OP-ED are true he just cannot help himself and shows he is unfit to hold that office of the president. Because on 9/11 he made it about himself.

I was not going to mention Trump today because I have known him for many years I owned a design build firm, and also Electrical Mechanical, fire Alarm and HVAC controls construction in the New England area for years.
I know who that man is and what he has done to people. If you disagree with him he will do everything in his power to destroy you. And I think the evidence shows that as he destroys everything in his path to maintain his power, and continue to gain great wealth on the backs of tax payers.

But I know the Trumpsters will again try to justify his actions.

Can you imagine the staggering amount of champagne that would be consumed if something would happen to this buffoon? The most ever in history as a tribute to the man consumed with being the most he can be.

I knew many of the men and women who died at the Pentagon on 911, but like our President, I could not bring myself to attend any of their funerals. I offer no excuse and I did not attend the funerals because I was disrespectful. It was almost impossible to come to terms with the thought of a large portion of my friends died, all at one time. In my heart, they were just as I last saw them; goofy jokes, smiling eyes, or the grumpiness from a bad nights sleep. They were friends, coworkers.... a part of my life. I still have difficulties associated with that day. It changed my entire life. Even now, I have not talked to anyone about their deaths. I suppose that day will always be raw and unhealing. People cope with loss differently. So, please stop with the never-ending excuses to attack the President.
