The thin-skinned, hypersensitive, prickly, and blinkered Donald Trump

Hard to believe some people want such an insensitive blowhard to be President.

On Tuesday, November 24, the New York Times published the following article:

A Definitive Debunking of Donald Trump’s 9/11 Claims.
And then there was the wisp of a story that Mr. Farmer [then New Jersey's attorney general] said was most disturbing of all: “That Muslims were dancing on the rooftops and in the streets of Jersey City and Paterson.” 
Indeed, pockets of radical Islamists had set up in Jersey City in the past. The 1993 World Trade Center bombers rented a van and stored chemicals and fertilizers in that city. 
Open jubilation at the mass death, Mr. Farmer said, might quickly be followed by rioting and more deaths. “If true, we would have had to mobilize the State Police and National Guard and locked the place down,” he said. 
“We followed up on that report instantly because of its implications,” he added. “The word came back quickly from Jersey City, later from Paterson. False report. Never happened.”
According to a 11/25/2015 Media Matters in America post, Serge Kovaleski covered the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks and has recently added to the definitive debunking of the presidential candidate's smear.

Then Trump unleashes a series of nana nana boo boo tweets -- 5 in about an hour's time.
