Trump is claiming he was at the Twin Towers on 9/11 attempting to rescue people.
Trump Tower is over SIX MILES from #GroundZero.
Trump would have had to walk SIX MILES in soot and ash to get there.
And then walk SIX MILES back home.
Keep in mind that Trump has repeatedly claimed he witnessed "thousands of Muslims celebrating" from his windows at Trump Tower.
He couldn't be in both places.
Trump later mocked a disabled reporter, Serge Kovaleski, he claimed had reported it. He hadn't.
This isn't one of Trump's minor lies.
This is 9/11.
Did Trump walk SIX MILES in a suit and dress shoes?
Or did he put on golfing clothes?
Do we believe the guy who will take an umbrella away from his wife to protect his hair in the rain would get his hair covered in ash?
You know who was at #GroundZero the next day, along with the mayor and governor? Then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, who fought for years for 9/11 victims and first responders.
Trump claimed to have lost "many friends" in 9/11, but has never been able to name one.
When I was covering the story, one of the most gutting things for me was the people standing on line with hairbrushes and toothbrushes to provide DNA for the morgue for their loved ones.
This lie, more than most of Trump's lies, just guts me. The horror of that day and the days after. Calling friends--including my best friend--frantically, trying to get through. Friends telling me they were heading downtown to give blood.
If Trump had been at #GroundZero on 9/11 there would be photos like this, of then-Sen. @HillaryClinton with victims and first responders (for whom she fought for over a decade) for him to share.
There are none.
Stolen valor.

Every day Trump reminds us he is a legit monster. THOUSANDS of kids grew up without a parent because of 9/11. And he thinks this is a joke. Deplorable was never a strong enough description.
