President Donald Trump threw his fists in the air as he arrived in Pennsylvania for a 9/11 memorial service.
POTUS pulled up with the First Lady, Melania Trump, to Shanksville where they will be honoring those who died aboard United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11th, 2001.
According to reporters, Donald Trump made the gesture as he approached a cheering crowd. The distasteful moment was captured by the press pool.
And if you think that was bad, he started the day off by doing his usual Twitter rant about Russian investigation. He also took the time out to commend Rudy Giuliani, who is now his lawyer, for his work as the mayor during the time of the tragedy. He even managed to make the moment about himself to never forget the proclamation he signed dubbing today Patriots Day.
Addressing the crowd in a more hushed voice than some of his usual speeches, the president praised the plane’s passengers and crew for their heroism.
“A piece of America’s heart is buried on these grounds. But in its place has grown a new resolve to live our lives with the same grace and courage as the heroes of Flight 93,” he said.
