september 11 attacks
This Saturday is the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, and President Joe Biden intends to visit the three sites in New York City, D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, that were attacked on that horrific day.
Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump will offer commentary for a pay-per-view boxing match between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort (as well as other fighters) at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Florida.
Trump said of the event:
"I love great fighters and great fights. I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won't want to miss this special event."
Trump called in to a press conference on Thursday regarding the event, where he was asked who he would like to box if given the chance, and what the fight would look like.

"[I]f I had to box somebody, I think probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden, because I think he'd go down very, very quickly. Very, very quickly."
He then alluded to comments by Biden during the 2016 campaign, after now-infamous tapes surfaced of Trump bragging about committing sexual assault—tapes Trump dismissed as "locker room talk".
Biden said at the time:
"I wish we were in high school — I could take him behind the gym. I mean, for real. Can you imagine a guy in the locker room talking that way?"
People found his comments tactless and sleazy.
