Chuck Todd finally acts like a newsman and calls Donald Trump out over his claims of seeing Muslims celebrating 9-11.

Courtesy of the New York Post:  

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.

      Did Trump mention that the wall was going to be built by the U.S. construction crews which by the way are now 75% Mexican laborers? But wait......if they are all rounded up and deported.......hmmm.

    I remember that footage. There were people cheering and Afghanistan. The place where we had armed conflicts in the Middle East for ages.

    I imagine that they cheered in the same way we did when we heard of Osama bin Laden has been assassinated in a raid.

    1. My understanding is that Trump claimed to have seen people falling from the towers from his office window, also impossible, but not that he saw the Muslims cheering from there.

      The bottom line is that essentially everything he says is bullshit.

      For anyone not familiar with Manhattan, Trump built his colossus on Fifth Avenue and 56th St. (tearing down the gorgeous Bonwit Teller to get the site).
      The World Trade Center was right next to Wall Street, the New York Federal Reserve -- everything at the tip of Manhattan. New York blocks are roughly 20 per mile, down to Washington Square, where all the named streets get mixed up. Still, from 8th St. in Greenwich Village to 56th St. means he was roughly two and a half miles from Washington Square Park, which then descends to the Village,
      East Village, NYU, City Hall, Tribeca, plus the thousands of towers that make up NYC.

      Trump lies when he thinks he can tell fantasies that he can pull over the rest of us "stupid" people. He thinks we're all rubes.

      But facts are irrefutable.

      Take this from someone who was downtown that day and did see, and hear, and watch, bodies jumping from the World Trade Centers. If Trump really had seen it, he wouldn't boast about it.

  10. I can remember my trip down the Fallopian Tube, I've got THAT good of a memory...and can, with crystal clarity, recall the news footage of ARABS IN ARABIA cheering...and wondering at the time, if they were really doing that due to the deaths of innocent people in America, or possibly over news that the toilet paper shortage was over, for them.

    We all need to have a suspicious nature, nowadays, given the tendency of people to put forth completely manufactured "evidence" about nearly everything.

    A Presidential contender, should have a full STAFF of people, assisting him in not being easily punked, and therefore making a fool of himself on the international stage.

    Well obviously by now people realize that there were no cheering Muslims in New Jersey on Sept. 11, 2001, even if Mr. Trump insists that it was so.

    That day there would have been no way for anyone, let alone Muslims, to know at that moment when the Towers were demolished that it would be attributed to Osama Bin Laden. That happened later. And it was not true, of course, as is most of the official US Government conspiracy theory.

    What was discovered was that there was a small group of people celebrating in New Jersey, but they were not Muslims. They were Israelis.

    Check it out here, where there are many links to legitimate sources:

    https://kendoc911.wordpress.com/?s=Dancing+Israelis

    And Osama bin Laden was not killed in the raid in Pakistan in 2013. He had been dead for years.

    7. Nikogriego4:03 PM

      roger, you have no idea what you are writing about.

      The most fantastical sounding conspiracy theory is the government's own, one that states somebody in a cave in Afghanistan orchestrated these events successfully. You have got your head in the sand. And I have not insulted you. And free-fall acceleration is not a "theory." It is science. WTC7 fell at that speed for 2.25 seconds, and impossibility without the use of explosives. Wake up.

      "Let's take a minute to re-acquaint ourselves with the official explanation, which is not regarded as a conspiracy theory despite the fact that it comprises an amazing conspiracy. The official truth is that a handful of young Muslim Arabs who could not fly airplanes, mainly Saudi Arabians who came neither from Iraq nor from Afghanistan, outwitted not only the CIA and the FBI, but also all 16 US intelligence agencies and all intelligence agencies of US allies including Israel's Mossad, which is believed to have penetrated every terrorist organization and which carries out assassinations of those whom Mossad marks as terrorists.

      In addition to outwitting every intelligence agency of the United States and its allies, the handful of young Saudi Arabians outwitted the National Security Council, the State Department, NORAD, airport security four times in the same hour on the same morning, air traffic control, caused the US Air Force to be unable to launch interceptor aircraft, and caused three well-built steel-structured buildings, including one not hit by an airplane, to fail suddenly in a few seconds as a result of limited structural damage and small, short-lived, low-temperature fires that burned on a few floors.

      The Saudi terrorists were even able to confound the laws of physics and cause WTC building seven to collapse at free-fall speed for several seconds, a physical impossibility in the absence of explosives used in controlled demolition.”

      That was my first thought. Todd only stood up to Trump because Trump is perceived as a threat by the lockstep Republican establishment. Not really sure why though. They're likethis on the issues and Trump would probably get more repug voters to the polls than any of the other repug candidates.

  19. Journalists need to decide what is more important, repeated visits to their networks and invitations to cocktail parties, or
    actual journalism.

    Part of the overall malaise facing voters, I suspect, is the complete lack of holding candidates accountable by the press.
    They rarely follow up or even ask the right questions.

    I doubt we're seeing a new Chuck Todd, but this will win more points that just punting.

    I wonder what Sarah Palin thinks of "Rump the Chump" now that he's been called out for lying. But, since both of them lie every time they open their mouths, they may not be aware of their predilection for telling lies. On second thought, I think they know that they're deliberately lying. They think we're all stupid when that applies much more generally to the media that follows them around, panting.

She told him to shove his forgiveness and went on to become a hit singer and actress DESPITE his bullshit. Vanessa Williams stood her ground. Carrie Prejean, had a ghostwritten book called "I'm still standing" after sexually suggestive photos of her emerged. Don't know where she's still standing, she faded into the walls like one of Donald's cockroaches.
