On “Meet the Press” Trump again insisted he saw celebrations in New Jersey following the terrorist attacks– despite no video coverage backing up that claim and police denying it happened.
“I saw it. So many people saw it, Chuck. So why would I take it back, I’m not going to take it back,” Trump said.
Todd pounced: “Just because somebody repeats something doesn’t make it true. And I guess, that’s actually, that’s the worst — ” Todd said shaking his head with a look of disgust.
Trump cut in to say people were saying in Sarasota, Florida over the weekend they were in New Jersey at the time also saw Arabs cheering the deadly terrorists attacks.
“People were saying,” Todd chimed in. “Mr. Trump, if I said, “Well people have said, Mr. Trump is not worth $10 billion and people were saying …’ you would say that was crazy. You wouldn’t make a business deal based on retweets and based on hearsay. You’re running for president of the United States. Your words matter. Truthfulness matters. Fact-based stuff matters, no?”
“Take it easy. Chuck, just play cool.” Trump retorted.
“I have a very good memory, Chuck.,” Trump added. “… I saw it somewhere on television many years ago and I never forgot it.”
Well good for Chuck Todd for holding Trump's feet to the fire over this BS claim.
And fuck Trump for continuing to report this lie which can only cause more divisiveness and animosity towards American Muslims.
