Americans Crush Trump After He Tweets 'Morbidly Excited' Message on the Anniversary of 9/11: 'This Is Not A Celebration'

President Donald Trump's first tweet of the day was not honoring 9/11, or the nearly 3000 lives that were lost in that unimaginable tragic attack on America.

Instead, it was about what's always on his mind: trying to convince the world his election was legitimate and he did not collude with Russia to win.

Trump then retweeted a 9/11 tweet from his director of social media, then posted three tweets responding to stories Fox News was reporting, then he posted a tweet announcing he was traveling "to attend a Flight 93 September 11th Memorial Service in Shanksville, Pennsylvania with Melania."

And then, this:

17 years since September 11th!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2018

It appears to be a gleeful celebration of one of the worst, most deadly, and most horrific attacks on the nation. Whether or not that was his intent, that's what it appears to be.

He did not and has not mentioned the brave first responders, many of whom died working to save others. Many first responders suffer disease from the toxins they breathed in while selflessly working to help others live.

He did not mention the nearly 3000 who died. He did not mention the families, friends, and co-workers who lost loved ones that terrible day.

He did not mention the U.S. service members who went to war, a misguided war, many of whom lost their lives, or their limbs, or their mental health.

President Trump did nothing to honor those most affected by 9/11.

Instead, he tweeted a celebration of the attacks.

Many on social media were confused, outraged, and stunned:
