The Only Honest Thing About Donald Trump’s Lies About 9/11 Are These Honest-To-God Hilarious Memes

Donald Trump has made over 10,796 false and misleading claims since he took on the Oval Office, according to the Washington Post. Most recently, he claimed he was on the ground with first responders after 9/11 happened. 

But people were quick to call him out on yet another elaborate lie. 

Recently, President Donald Trump came up with another sickening falsehood. 

On Monday, Trump stood before a group of 9/11 responders to sign the hard-fought-for-bill into law, that would extend funding for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) for another seven decades and he also lied to their face while he was at it. 

“Many of those affected were fighters, police officers and other first responders,” Trump said. “And I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder. But I was down there. I spent a lot of time down there with you.” 

But there’s simply no evidence to prove that this is true. 

So what was meant to be a time to honor 9/11 first responders and survivors of the terrorist attack, turned out to be just another chance for Trump to make it about himself. 

The bill, titled “Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luiz Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act,” will provide money for the VCF which helps with financial support for 9/11 responders, survivors, and their families. 

According to People magazine, Trump has a thing for bringing up the 9/11 attacks. He even once said that one of his buildings became New York City’s tallest after the World Trade Center towers collapsed. But that’s not true. By now, it’s clear that Trump will never stop making baseless claims. 

Even those who attended the event meant to honor 9/11 first responders called Trump out on his blatant lie saying they “never witnessed” him at ground zero. 

A retired New York Fire Department deputy chief told the New York Times he didn’t recall seeing him there and that Trump “was a private citizen at the time [of the attacks]. I don’t know what kind of role he could have possibly played.”  One White House reporter even tweeted, “Being down there surveying the damage is also not the same as standing on that pile of debris, as first responders who got sick did, day after day.” 

Quickly, Trump’s latest delusion comments sparkled the viral meme #LostTrumpHistory.

The trend reportedly launched thanks to @JoJoFromJerz‘s initial tweet where she shared the fabricated accomplishment that Trump was the first aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. 

After that, users began sharing their #LostTrumpHistory tweets. And trust us, they’re all true.

(Dear god, we hope you detected our sarcasm.)

Trump was part of the original Mount Rushmore. To whoever believes otherwise, open your eyes. Real eyes. Realize. Real lies.  

Trump was also at Jesus’ birth.

And he was eating a hamburger. Is it In-N-Out though? 

Trump was also the first American hero to scale Mount Everest.

Like, what are we doing with our life huh? We should be out there climbing Mount Fuji. 

Trump also hosted the Last Supper and it was all-inclusive.

Just kidding, he made Jesus pay for it. 

Someone made the joke Trump actually built the Great Wall of China and made Mexico pay for it.

Where do people come up with this?

Just like Trump was there as a “first responder” during 9/11, he also landed on the moon.

https://twitter.com/Hambino15/status/1155928656503427072 It’s true, I mean, look at the photo! It doesn’t look photoshopped at all. 

Who would’ve known that Trump could travel through space and time, eh?

We stan a multitasking president. Sike. 

There are way too many good #LostTrumpHistory memes to share, but you get the point.

Like we mentioned previously, this isn’t the first time Trump has made these baseless claims about what he’s done and where’s he’s been in the past. During his presidential campaign trail in 2016, he said during a rally that on September 11, he “helped a little bit” with clearing the rubble. But there’s just no evidence to prove this. 

He also reportedly said during a 2015 rally that he watched the September 11th attacks from a window in Trump Tower. Again, the statement was a lie. 

Come on, Mr. President, can you just go on one day without lying?

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos for Trump has long been a confusing organization in the Latino community. President Donald Trump has built his administration and brand to be squarely against people of color. Now, the Latinos for Trump group caused a stir when they posted a collage of flags that are not quite right.

Latinos for Trump really thought they had something when they posted their Hispanic Heritage Month collage.

The first, and most obvious mistake, is that the Mexican flag is backwards. The flag is supposed to be green, white, and red in that order. As we can all see, the collage has a Mexican flag that is red, white, and green. The eagle is even facing the wrong way so someone literally flipped the flag the wrong way.

Of course, some people tried to make sense of the bizarre Mexican flag snafu.

Last year, the Trump administration announced that it was cutting aid to three countries in Central America. The countries were El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Fox & Friends picked up the story but told their audience that Trump was cutting aid to “3 Mexican countries.” Perhaps this Twitter user is right and the Latinos for Trump are trying to suggest the existence of other Mexicos.

Someone else pointed out the issues with the Guatemalan flag in the top right corner.

People are very defensive about their cultural heritage and national origin. Messing up someone’s flag is a very serious issue for people. Just ask a Cuban or Puerto Rican about people confusing their flags. It is never a good thing.

Some people fixed the image for them so the organization can see what it should have looked like.

Good, clean lines with all of the flags facing the right way. The creator even changed the message in the middle for the Latino community. It is clear that social media is still willing to show up and teach a couple of lessons here and there.

Others had a more direct message for Latinos for Trump.

We all know that social media is where things go to be manipulated and made fun of. It is very important that if you make something for social media that you take good care to make sure that you check all of the right boxes and execute your work right the first time.

Michael Cohen’s New Tell-All Book Talks About Trump’s Scandalous Golden Shower Moment And His Hair Secrets

Michael Cohen’s New Tell-All Book Talks About Trump’s Scandalous Golden Shower Moment And His Hair Secrets

By now, we’re pretty certain the Trumps have had their fill of scandalous tell-all books. After all, each one seems to published by former members of their inner circle who no longer want to be the keepers of their dirty laundry. In the weeks leading up to the upcoming election, the Trumps have seen some of their worst secrets and darkest moments spilled by family members and ex- BFFs. Now, the president’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen is taking a jab at yanking out the skeleton’s in Donald Trump’s closet.

In his latest book Disloyal: A Memoir Cohen tallies of an insane list of “dirty deeds” which he claims he performed for Trump. And of course, while Cohen is a man whose credibility has been tainted various times, we couldn’t help but take a peek at the dirty Trump laundry he’s airing out in the book. Particularly because he started writing it while in prison after pleading guilty to criminal lies and financial crimes carried out on Trump’s behalf.

Check out the book’s biggest spills below!

Trump isn’t a big fan of his own son Donald Jr. 

In his book, Cohen writes about Trump’s frequent dismissals of his eldest child son Donald Jr. “Over time, I would come to learn that his father held him in extremely low esteem,” Cohen writes in his book recalling a moment in which Trump had been getting ready for a cameo at a WWE wrestling event when his son asked him if he was nervous.

“I’m going in front of millions of people. What kind of stupid fucking question is that? Get out of here,” Cohen recalled of the moment Trump made his son leave the room. “That kid has the worst fucking judgment of anyone I have ever met. What a stupid thing to say — to put that thought in my head.” 

Cohen thinks Trump is a pretty big racist.

“The Trumps were actually racist,” Cohen writes about Trump and his father Fred. “As a rule, Trump expressed low opinions of all black folks,” Cohen recalled in the book. “What he said in private was far worse than what he uttered in public.” 

In his book, Cohen also claimed that Trump criticized countries led by Black leaders the moment Barack Obama became elected president.

“Tell me one country run by a black person that isn’t a shithole,” Trump asked Cohen. “They are all complete fucking toilets.” 

“South Africa was once a beautiful country twenty, thirty years ago,” Cohen claimed Trump said. “Mandela fucked the whole country up. Now it’s a shithole. Fuck Mandela. He was no leader.”

Trump is extremely jealous of Barack Obama.

Which we all knew but this bit below is particularly hilarious.

“Watching Obama’s Inauguration in 2008 with Trump, with the massive, adoring, joyful crowd on the Mall, incensed the Boss in a way I’d never seen before — he was literally losing his mind watching a handsome and self-evidently brilliant young black man take over,” Cohen wrote in the memoir. “When Obama won the Nobel Prize, Trump went ballistic.”

Trump’s hair myths are worse than you thought.

According to Cohen, Trump’s bizarre hairstyle is a result of a botched scalp surgery. Cohen alleges in his book that a hair-implant operation in the 1980s disfigured Trump’s scalp. Apparently, to hide his scars, he uses his hair (which when undone) hangs down below his shoulder on the right side. 

“The three-step procedure required a flop up of the hair from the back of his head, followed by the flip of the resulting overhang on the back of his pate, and then the flap of his combover on the right side, providing three layers of thinly disguised balding-male insecurity,” Cohen writes. 

Cohen says Trump really did get a golden shower

Cohen admits that he and the president attended a strip show in Las Vegas where an act “involved two strippers drinking champagne and pretending to snort coke as they undressed, while one of them simulated giving the other a golden shower as the other caught the fake urine and drank it.” 

Cohen claims in his book that he didn’t witness that part of the show personally but that it was performed that night after seeing it on the club’s Facebook page. 

He also says that he doesn’t know what happened at the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in 2013. There the notorious “dossier” alleged Trump hosted strippers who peed on each other in his hotel room as part of a performance. Of course, Trump denies this ever happened.
