Why Trump Didn’t Mis-Speak When He Said “7/11” Instead of “9/11”

When Donald Trump spoke earlier this week in Buffalo, media critics roasted him for allegedly confusing “9/11” with “7/11.” However, a theory emerged as to why Trump didn’t misspeak, one that the media refuses to acknowledge.

The controversy all began on April 18, as Trump was speaking before a crowd in Buffalo on the day before the New York primary. During the speech, he touted his 9/11 activism.

Here are some of Trump’s remarks to the audience from the Conservative Tribune:

“I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart. Because I was down there and I watched our police and firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.”

Predictably, the media wasted no time in criticizing Trump’s remarks. Here are some of CNN’s condescending remarks, written with scarcely contained glee:

“Donald Trump, who has made his advocacy for New York City after the 9/11 attacks central to his candidacy, accidentally referred to it on Monday as 7/11 – the ubiquitous convenience store.”

However, a new theory quickly emerged – the fact that he was actually talking about the Greenville Fire Department, a department in the New York town of Scarsdale that was one of the first to respond to the 9/11 attacks.

The station is known as “711” because of its address, 711 Central Park Avenue. And as one Facebook user close to the situation pointed out the firefighters there were quoted as ‘thanking Trump for his generous donations of time, services and goods, both for the firefighters and for the victims.’

Here’s the key part of that Facebook post from the Greenville Fire Department:

“… Trump did not make an error, as he was referring to the fire station near his home. In the speech he says ‘the firemen down at 711,’ referring to station #711 in Scarsdale, New York.”

And here’s another convenient fact the media forgot to report: The way Trump phrased his comment made it sound more like he was talking about a location, not a date. His words were “our firemen down at 7/11,” not “our firemen on 7/11.” Big difference.

There you have it. Another example of the lame-stream media – and even some so-called “conservative” media types – trying to tear down Trump and make him look bad.

Do you think this is another example of anti-Trump bias from the mainstream media?

  1. Its very sad when the media takes Trump’s words, confuse them, then around and to use them against him! Of course in their itty-bitty minds, it is very easy to be confused and it takes too much time and research to find out and report the truth! They change “news” to report things the way they want it to be, not how things really happen! In this country, we are suppose to have freedom of speech, not freedom to report untruth! Wake Up America!

    • The weapon of the Communists is the mainstream media, the schools and the large organizations. They promised that they will take America without a single bullet fired, and they are succeeding because of so many uninformed, misinformed and blind loyalists to their party. Remember what the Communist Party of America has openly endorsed , the Democratic party as their party,. I used to be one during JFK’s term and got educated on their agenda so I left the party. There you have it, research and weep if you are still in it.

  2. Some how with the media this doesn’t surprise me as they have been known to twist
    the comments of others for whatever reasons just to make themselves look important. This
    is one typical reason why I take the media with a grain of salt, most untrustworthy.

  3. The entire media complex, from international to local tv and newspapers is nothing but a Socialist entity that will tell you ONLY what they want you to hear and to hell with the truth. They no longer report the news and let you decide; they report only the view they think you need to know. Piss on the whole bunch of them.

  4. Of course it is the PAID BIASED MAINSTREAM MEDIA’s JOB TO ALWAYS MAKE TRUMP LOOK BAD, THEY ARE PAID FOR IT. The pundits don’t care if they are telling a lie, they care about their jobs. The mainstream media has been bought a long time ago for the DEMOC-RATS to win, because they can be controlled like puppets on a string by the powerful elites. heir goal is to collapse America from within because they can’t do it with our military. I wish the military Generals will do something before he declares Martial Law and be President forever.
