Are people stupid enough to believe this? Please no


The last few years have shown us that yes, people are stupid enough to believe just about anything.


Someone is getting this tattooed on their face this very moment

*Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine have entered the chat* *shit not to mention all of QAnon*


People are taking horse dewormer for a virus that causes respiratory tract infections, so yeah.


Don’t forget blindness so it seems fitting


Based on how close this last presidential election was, I'm afraid I have good and bad news for you. The bad news is, Red states are still so fucking dense that some areas became even redder. The good news is, we are reaching an unprecedented black-hole level of density, if we study the phenomenon, we may be able to fuse atoms and create the cleanest and most reliable source of energy. In the meantime, we can get ever more climate deniers triggered so that the density level stays stable, and if we are lucky, get their thick, dense skulls to collapse into a singularity and evaporate into Hawking's radiation almost instantly... Man I love science...


Obama broke into the Oval Office just to watch basketball, fucking legend.


Also, there would have been no live basketball on TV in September. So just watching old games on ESPN classic I guess?


This is the kind of minute distinction that me, a non-American, could never have identified and thus I shall cherish. Thank you.


Also should be noted that the widescreen television format and HD broadcasts weren’t really a thing in 2001… so that TV is from the goddamn future.


Obama came from the future, brought his entire home entertainment system and broke into the white house. Absolute madlad


Semi-related... My son kept asking me "what if I time traveled back to your childhood (the 80's) with a PS4 and showed you what video games are going to look like in the future?" I told him he'd be fucked because TVs back then weren't compatible with todays technology. His solution was to bring a TV and soundbar along with his PS4.


Mugg his little ass and sell the design to SONY for mad cash.


bootstrap paradox


The technology didn’t exist to make the chips.


Have you not seen Terminator 2? They will live off the patents alone for years to come.


Defines the unit.


I don't remember when tv's got thin, but my broke ass still had a fat back tv in 2001


They were available, but they were very expensive then.


Haha. You're welcome!


I hope this other "minute distinction" didn't escape you - Obama was not president in 2001... That would be Shrub (little Bush).


Shrub is fucking brilliant. Using this one forever!


This meme isn't aimed at intellectuals


He’s so badass that he broke in, moved the TV, then forced two NBA teams to play on a Tuesday morning


Excuse me he brought in his own HD TV that hadn't been released to the market yet, and then watched the game.


I’m starting to think that Obama planned 9/11 to distract everyone long enough so that he could sneak into the Oval Office and watch basketball. It’s the only thing that makes sense. I mean, he has an HD tv in 2001. I’m sure he’s Illuminati and therefore, definitely has the power to pull the strings behind 9/11. Thanks, Obama.


That looks like a Big Ten court, so a college game in the morning. That's a true hooper!


Damn! If that’s true, that’s some level of commitment to get teenagers up and playing a ballgame at that time of day.


Hid brother-in-law was a college basketball coach, and one notorious for morning practice. He's probably throwing his weight around, calling in a family favor.


So he forced both Wisconsin *and* Northwestern to play in September? Dude put a Big Ten rivalry game on a random Tuesday morning


Barack had that sort of clout! You have to have clout to watch an off season basketball game in the White House 8 years before you're president.


Using what was back then an experimental HD broadcast technology. He was well connected, even then!


But the classic games wouldn’t have been in high def yet. New games came to HD years later.


I think they photoshopped the tv image. The rest is real. /S


For that matter, this model of TV didn’t exist in 2001…


Yeah right, next your gonna say Obama wasn’t president or something like that.


Also, I'm pretty sure all programming was suspended the day of the attacks, with the exception of the 4 major networks and cable news channels. I remember this distinctly: scrolling through Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, QVC, etc, with the banner on the bottom reading "Programming suspended" or something like that.


Yeah that’s why despite many people having an issue with movies when the character gets a call from someone asking “have you heard? Have you heard. Turn on the news. Doesn’t matter what channel. Just turn on your tv” that it’s not realistic I find it very realistic because literally every channel for four days carried nothing but coverage of the attacks.


>Turn on the news. Literally 90% of people in the US uttered those words that day.


Don't start trying to bring facts and mess up these idiot's reality.


On a flat screen... in 2001... I was still using a 50lb CRT like a chump


Epic. I had mixed feelings about the guy before but this won me over.


Obama was visiting bush to get the secret bush family baked babies recipe


He thought they were the same Bush that wrote Comedown and Glycerine. While he was ultimately disappointed at least W let him sit in his chair and watch a game of basketball.


Ah, an cultured individual... GOD I miss the 90s lol


We let the days go by




It shoulda been … easierrrrr but you






lmao he will be the "pork" in the beans recipe lol


Lmao i say this a lot


*tried to get it. Remember, fool me once shame on you Fool me twice, can’t get fooled again


George H. W. Bush: I told my son, George, the secret recipe, and he isn't telling anyone. Dubya: Roll that beautiful baby footage. H. W: Oh no.


He also decided to wear his salt and pepper toupee that day in 2001. Much different from the all-black hair he had during his inauguration.


So tender and mild


I let out an audible chuckle


Didn't Trump make a comment about how his building became the second tallest in New York thanks to 9/11. Edit - thank you for the awards and up votes :)


He also claimed during one of the debates that he lost hundreds of friends in the attack. After he got called out, he changed it to many friends. He got called out once more, and never mentioned it ever again.


And that he personally saw “Muslims” cheering when the towers fell


In New Jersey.


Damn those must be some good binoculars.


Obviously false, he has no friends. Only co-conspirators.


Must be lonely being that terrible of a person that nobody wants to be around you if it doesn't gain them something.


The world's biggest useful idiot has many useful idiots of his own.


He has friends?


Maybe he heard if from a friend who heard it from a friend, who heard it from another that they knew someone who died that day.


Probably from Nicki Minaj's cousins friend.


My uncle's cousin's friend works at Nintendo and got swollen balls from the Covid vaccine.


Great, now I have REO Speedwagon stuck in my head.


He did. He said it THE SAME DAY THE TOWERS CAME DOWN. Oh, and by the way, it wasn't even true.


I am not positive, but I think he was also calling into newsrooms pretending he was in the City when he was actually in Mar a lago.


The thought of him even *standing up* to help anyone is hilarious, much less him coming into a burning tower, bone spurs and all, to rescue people.


Well I mean we already know how he'd react to someone needing help. When an 80 year old man fell and was critically injuried and bleeding? His reaction was disgust that the man would stain the marble floor with his blood. This isn't some rumor or from an anonymous source. It's a story he willingly told Howard Stern live on the air. https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-time-donald-trump-turned-away-in-disgust-while-a-man-bled-to-death-in-front-of-him


So I guess the people that still support him just think these are all made up? Even when you can hear him, in his own voice, explain the story as he's telling it, in his own words. He makes himself sound like a delicate coward. We all have our moments but this is just one of many.


According to his own statements he was at 7/11


7/11 was a part time job


That would not surprise me one bit


you mean Trump lied? i don't believe it. /s Edit: thank you for the silver!


Its harder to find something he said that is true, at this point....


"If she weren't my daughter I'd date her"


Another lie. Turns out, he DID date her.


I'm thinking she ain't his daughter. Lot of cheating going on in the 80s.


I’m pretty sure she is - if you see a pic of her before she got plastic surgery she looks like a young Trump in a wig


So a young Trump.


So he Loki'd himself.


and me thinks that ain't all


Dating her doesn't make the statement a lie, though. *If it rains, the street is wet.* This statement is true if it doesn't rain and the street being wet doesn't imply rain.


You've put a lot more thought into it than I.


I think the lie is that she's his daughter...


He'd said he'd fuck his daughter if he could. I believe him.


“He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it—Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”


[He said](https://edition.cnn.com/2016/03/04/opinions/president-trump-six-year-old-with-nuclear-weapons-dantonio/index.html): When I look at myself in the first grade and I look at myself now, I'm basically the same. The temperament is not that different." I believe that.


Ugh the in inaccuracy is the least offensive thing about that


He said it AS they were burning


Wtf you learn something new and shitty about him everyday.


What building was tallest and second tallest on 9/11 after the towers fell?


No he didn’t. He said it was the tallest (which wasn’t even true)


No. You've got it wrong. During an interview, shortly after the towers fell, the same day, he said [“40 Wall street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, *and it was actually before the World Trade Center the tallest*, and and then when they built the World Trade Center it became known as the second-tallest, *and now it’s the tallest.*"](https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-bragged-tallest-building/)


Remember when people used to make fun of Bush for not being able to string a sentence together? Never realised the Republicans were upset because he was actually too eloquent for their liking. What even is that sentence?


And the MAGAts are doing it to Biden now, claiming he can't string a sentence together and that he has "dementia". Conveniently ignoring the fact that Biden has had a stutter since childhood. Having a stutter has literally *nothing* to do with intelligence or mental capacity. Also convenient how they completely ignore that while Trump "could" string together a sentence, half the time those sentences were complete gibberish. I figure them claiming so vigorously that Biden has dementia because of his stutter is just pure projection.


Such a disgusting person. Really- he’s just gross.


Every time someone quotes him I always think that they can't be right. Then someone will post exactly what he said and it's always worse.


If it's redundant, self-aggrandizing and vile, you know it's a legitimate Trump quote.


he said it was the tallest, he was considered a total joke in NY back then everyone just rolled their eyes at his idiocy back then.


Didn't Trump offer to pay a sum of money to some 9/11 charity, and hasn't payed a dime 'till this day?


Correct. His actual charity foundation shut down because he and his children used it as a slush fund. The entire family is banned from operating a charity in New York ever again.


he didn't just make a comment, he fucking bragged about it like it was something amazing. he was fucking GIDDY


Iirc he bragged about how his was the tallest afterwards when in reality it was the second tallest.


actually it was the 4th at that time; empire, chrysler, 70 pine street, ~~40 wall street and citigroup~~ were taller edit: thought he was referring to the trump world tower which just opened the same year




He also repeatedly told people he was down there or he lost various friends etc


Man, the guy is an objective piece of shit, but name me one president we've ever spoken about more. If this guy's objective was to become (in)famous, I'd say mission accomplished. We'll be blabbing about this moron forever.


He’ll go down in history right next to Andrew Jackson and Nixon Andrew Jackson because of what his presidency was like Nixon because… well…


Trump will be forever compared to Jackson, Harding, Nixon, and Reagan. The cult that has followed the 40th *&* 45th president is concerning.


https://youtu.be/PcKlPhFIE7w I can't believe he made it as far as a presidency, he was already dumb back then. 🤦‍♀️




At least they left him the remote


The remote to a TV that wasn't invented yet.


What exactly do you think they're working on in Area 51? Get real. Aliens gave us flat acreens.


Also the NBA season somehow started 1 month earlier than normal.


With a game starting at 8:30AM


And somehow that game wasnt cancelled when the US was hit by the biggest terrorist attack in history.


"My God folks, we've just received word that a second plane has hit the World Trade Center in New York. This is....a....a absolute, disastrous day for the United States. Um, reports are still coming in and we only know so much, but what we do know for sure is THERE GOES THE BUZZER WITH THE SCORES TIED UP AND WE'RE GOING INTO OVERTIIIIIME!"


As there's a deep shot by Castellanos and that'll be a 3 pointer. And so that'll make it a 4-0 game


"I cannot believe what I'm seeing, the streets are full of people fleeing the wreckage and... oh my god! oh my god! The tower is coming down. All I can do is pray. I pride myself and think of myself as a man of faith, as there's a drive deep into left field by Castellanos and that'll be a home run. And so that'll make it a 4-0 ballgame."


G Dubya had the last season on DVR.


And being broadcast in 16:9 hi def despite no TVs existing that supported it yet. Except apparently that one magic TV in the picture


Also any American sports event wasn't cancelled that day.


This is potentially this most dense photoshop of 2021


The neck doesn't even fit


No, it could be real, think about the odd way trump stands with his butt out and torso forward. Has he always stood like that? Tbh I don’t know or care, but maybe his awkward posture is in a constant flux. It’s possible he held his head and neck extremely to the left back then. I buy it, I can - not follow the facts or common sense but twist my brain logic to believe this is real.


All the Trumps stand like that. Do you know what else stood/stands like that: dinosaurs, birds, and lizards And what do they have in common: tails. Trump also wears tons of makeup. Do you know who else would need lots of makeup: a lizard trying to pass itself off as a person. It’s time we expose the Trump family for the lizard people they are!


we found Zucc's true brother


lizard people confirmed




His neck was obviously injured while carrying the 9/11 survivors on his back


I’ve actually heard several people at those wacky events blame Obama for doing nothing on 9/11. Its scary common.


Since the Illinois state legislative session convenes from January to May, and it would have been one hour behind... I'm guessing he was stopped in his tracks preparing in the morning for whatever he was going to do that day, and spent the whole day glued to the TV like everyone else who wasn't directly in the threatened areas.


Probably the perfect cover to get into the back room and forge a birth certificate. There you have it. Solved on Reddit. We really don't get enough credit as a community.


People will believe it, don’t you worry.


It “speaks volumes”!! Or, rather, lies loudly.


I honestly want to see the comments on this post...


Ok, now we all know he's a joke, but seriously? He was on his private plane and then bragged about how the towers crashing down made his building the tallest. He didnt even show concern for those killed. This isnt up for debate, its recorded.


When it comes to Trump, since When do we let proven facts get in the way?


I think it says something about his followers that almost all his propaganda is poorly photoshopped pictures. Its almost as if they are uneducated and dont know how to read anything past two syllable.


"We won the evangelicals, we won with young, we won with old, we won with highly educated, **we won with poorly educated! I love the poorly educated.** We’re the smartest people, we’re the most loyal people." -DJT well he did say he loves the poorly educated and they seem to love him too. I guess it's because he called them smart and loyal.


*Everything he says and gets called out for* is recorded. But he denies all of it, as if video isn't a thing. His distortion field is amazing.


Yep, it's the clearest example of what sells in the Republican party. The guy won them over by lying about Obama's birthplace before running for office. Then on day one of his candidacy he talked about how Mexico is sending over its criminals and rapists. Then a few months later he said he wanted to ban all Muslims from entering the country. And he's a god to them. He can be on tape saying shit, and if he later denies it, they'll back him up. All of which means that for a majority of the Republican party, if you play to their bigotry, they will ignore all else and defend you no matter what.


Here's the sauce: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcKlPhFIE7w](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcKlPhFIE7w) comments are at 1:52.


Trump spent as much time at Ground Zero as he did in Vietnam. None.


Climbing all that rubble would hurt his bone spurs.


Anything can be true if you just make it up


And post it on the internet, that is the part that makes it true. /s


“Remember, it’s not a lie if *you* believe it” - George Constanza


you think people would do that? just go on the internet and tell lies?


Wait, what!? Falsehoods on the internet?? You sir, are the liar! My walnut-sized brain hurts now...


I think this was made to troll the trumpers but they forgot that trumpers are morons


Isn't that basically the start of Q anon?


It's why so many people will never ever leave the cult, they could never admit they got trolled by an edgelord incel on an internet message board. It would be unbearable.


“It’s working!!……It’s wooorrrkingg!” -Anakin Skywalker


Yup I've had to correct/remind some trumptards that Obama wasn't pres in 2001, they quickly move on to next argument


And what basketball was he watching in September?


At about 9:00 am, while every TV network was covering the news of the 9-11 attack?


He had NBA League Pass, duh


Replays were streaming on ESPN+


March Madness, obviously


On a flatscreen TV with such small bezels in 2001? People really forgot what the state of technology was only 20 years ago.


Do they actually believe this?


I’ve had people tell me “even if it’s not factually true, the feelings behind it are” as rebuttals to being called out on memes like this. So if you feel it, it’s real. Easy peasy


That is wild, what does that even mean? You FEEL like Obama wouldn’t do anything if he’d been president? You FEEL like trump would have done something great if he wasn’t a self-serving a-hole who in fact made jokes about how Trump tower was tallest building now on actual 9/11/01? SMH. It’s nuts how much people worship Trump. Like, people who are supposedly believing in Christianity where one of the 10 commandments is though shalt have no other god before me, and they literally create golden idols of this dude. Sigh.


“Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert.

You just blew my mind. Thank you for sharing that quote, i think it will help me to keep in mind when thinking about rabid Trump supporters. I have really struggled for the past several years trying to understand. I’ve honestly really done in my mental health with it all. What a powerful thing to consider, that they aren’t trying to make sense, they don’t have to, they just have to say outlandish things and then get other people to say outlandish things, then it’s on me and others like me to feel we ought to “prove them wrong” or whatever, and that doesn’t do us or anyone else any good either. Anyway, something to think about on this Friday evening. Thanks again.


we don't argue with the trumpsters to save the trumpsters. we argue with them for the benefit of the audiences who might fall for their bullshit. but yeah. this quote just keeps being more and more relevant lately. - I've got it on speed-dial these days.


They're saying "Sure, we know it's a lie, but it's a useful lie, so it's OK." They can't see why that's a problem.


Believe? There is nothing to believe, the fucking photo is right there in front of us!


Lol true, how could i have gotten that wrong, clearly there’s photographic evidence!


Extra points for telling them the Republican President wasn’t in his oval office that day.


He was playing with children

For those still wondering how trump became president, there are people in the USA who believe this. This is the power of propaganda. You either understand what propaganda is and how it works OR you are being manipulated by propaganda.


Why do these goobers keep thinking that trump is the second coming of Jesus when they have to photoshop him doing anything good? Where is the logic to this?




Yeah. Trump's face is so horribly photoshopped in. It's hilarious.


I like how it appears to be present-day Trump, not 2001 Trump.


Even if some president had carried victims over their own shoulders, it would be anyone but Trump.


Tramp's actual contribution was to [claim he now had the the tallest building](https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/9-11-trump-tallest-building-manhattan-b1901790.html),


Pretty sure this is a parody. Please tell me it's a parody.


The really fucked up part about this is that despite the fact that GWB was President, that basketball was not in season, and that HDTV was not yet the broadcast standard, the biggest lie here might be the idea that Donald Trump did something to help other people. Ever. In his life.


But trump did receive money for the victims of 9/11 so yea I guess you could say he helped, if helping is screwing those in need. Sad that trumtards will actually believe this ignorance. Fuck I hate the world now 😢


The real facepalm would be any comments that think this is real.


HA! Everyone knows that Truman was pres during 9/11. 9/11/51. Makememesmorespecificand/ornon-sequitororial.org


Didn’t trump brag that his building was the second tallest in NYC after 911 because the Twin Towers fell?


There’s no way this isn’t ironic. I refuse to believe.


Then he rushed to Jersey to watch muslims celebrate the towers' falling 🤦‍♂️
