Friday marks the 19th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, and while many Americans reflect somberly on the day’s carnage and the political clusterfucks that followed, Tiffany Trump—the other Trump daughter—is busy posting graphic tragedy porn on Instagram.
“To all who lost their lives and to all who gave their lives on 9/11 we remember and honor you!” Trump wrote. “You are always on our minds and forever in our hearts.”
Her caption devolves into a series of cliches, which stress the importance of “standing up under a unified flag” and define the United States as a “beacon of hope for the world.” But the writing wasn’t the corniest part of her post. No, it was the egregious video she seems to have created herself, and then, for some reason, uploaded to Instagram: twee looking clouds overlayed over photos of smoke and flames billowing from the World Trade Center.
The second video, which depicts the moment the second plane hit the Twin Towers, is particularly morbid. A deliberate choice was made! To make! The fireball! The first image you’re hit with when you swipe!
I’m not sure why Tiffany Trump felt compelled to Blingee-fy 9/11, but it’s so tacky and ghoulish that you just have to laugh. Even if Tiffany’s mourning is sincere, it’s still in poor taste to post one of the most graphic photos from 9/11 as part of a cute tribute.
In other Trump news, President Trump is convinced that the only explanation for Joe Biden’s newfound energy on the campaign trail is... drugs.
In an interview for Fox News’s Judge Jeanine, Trump said, “There’s probably—possibly—drugs involved. That’s what I hear. I mean, there’s possibly drugs.”
He continued: “I don’t know how you can go from being so bad where you can’t even get out a sentence—I mean, you saw some of those debates, with the large number of people on the stage. He was... I mean, I used to say, ‘How is it possible that he can even go forward?”
This isn’t the first time Trump has made this claim.
During an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham earlier this month, Trump said of Biden, “He’s on some kind of an enhancement, in my opinion.” In August, he told the Washington Examiner that he would prefer it if both he and Biden were drug tested before their first presidential debate, which is scheduled to take place on September 29 in Ohio.
Trump has never specified what kind of performance-enhancing drugs he suspects Biden is taking. Cocaine? Speed? Caffeine drip? Is Biden stealing my ADHD meds? Honestly, this reeks of desperation but go off, dude. [
