Here’s Donald Trump Fist-Pumping Like A Goon Before A 9/11 Memorial Service

Footage captured overnight in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, shows US President Donald Trump disembarking Air Force One, striding towards an expectant crowd, and double fist-pumping.

Trump was on his way to a memorial service in Shanksville. That’s near the site of the Flight 93 crash, which saw passengers aboard the jet overpower Al-Qaeda hijackers before they could target major civilian and government centres.

Not exactly a jovial situation. But there’s Trump, acting like it’s 2011, he’s four vodka Red Bulls deep, and Benny Benassi’s Cinema just came on at the club.

The optics join other baffling statements made by Trump regarding the attacks, including this acontextual tweet:

Trump went on to deliver a relatively traditional and reflective speech at the memorial. It is unknown if he carried on fist-pumping afterwards.
