    Do you think it was so many people that he legitimately worried the stage would collapse? I have no clue how you can read it any other way.

    His wording is never precise because he's a fucking moron, but I think the intent is clear as day.

    Edit to add: the giveaway is where he says "we wouldn't fall very far."
    There are a lot of people and families that this bill will be helping, so many in fact that I don't know if the stage will hold them, but I want them to come up here (so I can show off) and be recognized.

    That's how I took it.

    Yea that makes more sense. Honestly, why would he troll 9/11 victims?
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    I agree with this/heyelander's interpretation of Trump's words, and I don't get those who quibble over things that could be honestly taken a few different ways, because there are so many clear cut things he says that are appalling. But as far as why he would be insensitive to 9/11 victims, he has already shown the ability to do that when he crowed about having the tallest building left, with pride, right after the towers went down. This is a man who spent all his time eulogizing his father by talking about himself, and how proud his father way of how great he was. Everything is about him. Nothing else matters.

    No question he is a malignant narcissist, but I believe his idiocy is the culprit in this instance.

    I guess this would make sense for any normal person. I'm 50/50 on his intent, could be either interpretation. I took it in line with his comments about Puerto Ricans, trolling crisis victims saying "we're spending a lot of money on you".

    It's probably the non-malicious version, but the fact that it wouldn't make the top 50 most disgusting things he's said if it were a genuine joke about 9/11... well, that says something.

    Glad to see Heyelander explained it in how I saw it.

    i have epiphanies like that all the time. for example i was watching a basketball game today and realized pom poms are like a pair of tits. there's 2 of them. they're round. they shake. women play with them. thus instead of having two, cheerleaders have four boobs.

    Rep. Elijah Cummings house apparently was burglarized and the Moron inhabiting the White House says "Too Bad!"

    I hope Americans remember those words, so on the day he's impeached/loses/worse, we can all have a great laugh and say "Too Bad!"

    Incredible quote. Jake Tapper says he spoke to a senior national security official who told him. “Everyone at this point ignores what the president says and just does their job. The American people should take some measure of confidence in that.”
