“Where’s Trump?”: Twitter Trashes TFG For Skipping Official 9/11 Memorial Ceremony in NYC

America marked the solemn 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001, with memorials, ceremonies, and social media users sharing their experiences from the worst foreign terrorist attack on our soil. While Jimmy Carter was unable to travel due to health restrictions, the other living former Presidents and their spouses–save for one glaring exception–joined President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden in lower Manhattan to mark the somber occasion. The Bidens traveled to all three crash sites, while former President George W. Bush spoke at a ceremony in Shanksville, PA, where he compared the feelings of violation and fear stoked by the 9/11 attacks to the events that occurred at the January 6th riot at the Capitol.

But Biden’s predecessor, who once famously and erroneously bragged that the buildings he owned were now the tallest in the city after the Twin Towers fell, grabbed a quick photo op with some New York City police before hopping a plane to Florida to call a boxing match in a casino.

Having already said he and his wife wouldn’t be attending any 9/11 memorials where President Biden and the other former Presidents would be, Trump decided it was a good idea to meet some New York City cops to try to make it look like he did something before he and his namesake son retreated to Florida to yell about two men beating each other up for money.

While no one was surprised by Trump’s absence, because he doesn’t belong at any event that demands reverence or respectful behavior, even his harshest critics were caught off guard for a brief moment when it was learned he was actually going to be the commentator at Evander Holyfield’s comeback fight on the 20th anniversary of the greatest tragedy this country has ever lived through. Twitter took Trump to task with the tone he deserved: utter contempt.
