LISTEN: Donald Trump on September 11, 2001 Says His Building at 40 Wall St: ‘Now It’s the Tallest’

Earlier this morning, Trump quoted two Fox News personalities who claimed the investigation has found “absolutely zero” to show Trump colluded with Russian operatives.

He later quoted Fox News again, this time railing against former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page and their “Media Leak Strategy,” a response to reports that the two had planned to leak messages to the media in an attempt to embarrass him.

Using a quote from Fox News veteran Lou Dobbs, he signaled his distaste for Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder…

…before praising his own attorney, Rudy Giuliani, for his response to the 9/11 attacks. (Giuliani was the mayor of New York at the time.)

The closest Trump came to memorializing those who perished on 9/11 came with the following tweet, in which he noted the amount of time that had passed:

The public response has not been kind:

Dan Scavino, the president’s social media maven, posted a photograph of Trump signing a Proclamation designating “Patriot Day 2018” to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11.

It’s an odd time to be alive. The president is more concerned with evading an impeachment and a possible indictment. His former lawyer, Michael Cohen, has implicated him in a federal crime. He continues to threaten our top law enforcement agencies while discrediting the findings of our intelligence community. Calls for his resignation continue to mount amid the consensus that Russia not only interfered in our democratic process, and the growing realization that the leader of the United States is illegitimate. Consider: It’s just another Tuesday in the White House and Trump has been showing us who he is for years.
