What a FLUB! Donald Trump Meant to Say 9/11, but Instead Made this Joe Biden-like GAFFE!

Donald Trump Joe Biden

The New York Primary will be held on Tuesday, April 19. Leading up to that event, one with a lucrative number of delegates at stake, bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump has invoked that horrific day on September 11, 2001, to attack his closest rival for the GOP presidential nomination, Texas Senator Ted Cruz .

Prior to the Iowa Caucus, Ted Cruz commented on Trump’s ‘New York Values’ in reference to Trump’s own words from a previous interview in which he defended his support of homosexual marriage and partial-birth abortion by saying, “I mean, hey, I lived in New York City and Manhattan all my life, OK? So, you know, my views are a little bit different than if I lived in Iowa perhaps, but it’s not something that would disturb me.”

But, the “New York Values” comment by Cruz has been used to attack the constitutional conservative incessantly. Trump himself almost immediately began referencing that horrific day, 9/11/2001, in an attempt to disparage Cruz. Given Trump’s politicization of that terrorist attack on a day that 3,000 American lives perished, it is beyond disturbing that he referenced that day by confusing it with a convenience store famous for Slurpees.

Trump committed this serious and uncomfortable gaffe during a campaign stop and rally in Buffalo, New York on Monday evening.

“I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart. Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.”

Uh, seriously? Reports say he had no clue what a huge blunder he committed. Is anyone from his campaign even paying attention to what he’s saying or are they just afraid to point out the Joe Biden-like gaffe blunder to ‘Mr. Trump.’
