Though many have condemned Donald Trump for repeating his claims that “thousands” of New Jersey Muslims celebrated on 9/11, and that there is old TV news footage somewhere out there to prove it, one brave, bumbling Fox & Friends host defended the “idea” of Trump’s story this morning. That man was Steve Doocy, of course.
Per Mediate, Doocy said he “remembers” American Muslims cheering on 9/11, too. Or rather, he remembers, uhh, according to his neighbors in the next town, uhh, that you know, things like that occurred. Behold, the racist chain email version of “remembering”:
I actually remember things like that. I remember, because I live one town away from one of the towns where, according to my neighbors, they saw it with their own two eyes, there were people celebrating.
I also remember there was video on television. I don’t remember if it was from that town or from New Jersey. Nonetheless, Donald Trump says there are a lot of people out there who have verified the idea of his story.
To be clear: No news outlet has verified Trump’s claims.
