Are Trump's lies about Ground Zero "stolen valor"?

Asking for the 9/11 first responders who died.

WP: "Some past Trump statements about his 9/11 experiences can't be verified, including claims he sent construction crews to help and had 'hundreds' of friends die at Ground Zero."
1/ I mean, if you say you were "down there" at Ground Zero on 9/11 and then add, falsely, that you provided search-and-rescue resources that you never in fact provided, how is that *not* playing a game of "stolen valor" with the *worst attack on American soil* since Pearl Harbor?
2/ You can see from the video that Trump goes off-script to lie about 9/11, suggesting his aides knew he was going to lie, as he's *always* lied about 9/11, and tried to keep him from doing so via a Teleprompter but his desire to lie about 9/11 was *so strong* he couldn't resist.
3/ I think what makes Trump such an American patriot is that he dodged the Vietnam draft and stole valor from the 9/11 first responders with repeated lies about his conduct after the Twin Towers fell. Or maybe it was encouraging Russia to attack America's election infrastructure?
4/ @RepAdamSchiff had it right: Trump is disloyal to the U.S. I have *no* problem saying that, because it's 100% factual. And I think Democrats in and out of D.C. should be saying it daily: DONALD TRUMP IS DISLOYAL TO THE UNITED STATES. We should say it 10 million times pre-2020.
