Trump Probably Lied About His Personal Memory Of ‘Thousands And Thousands’ Of Muslims In Jersey Cheering After 9/11
El Trumpo has been offering as proof that Syrian refugees can’t be trusted that he personally saw thousands of Muslims cheering in New Jersey after the 9/11 attacks.
Trump now says he saw people in New Jersey cheering as the World Trade Center came down on 9/11

Apparently it was an internet rumor way back in 2001, but as far as I can tell, there’s no evidence it happened.
Here’s video of him saying he saw thousands and thousands of people personally, himself, cheering about 9/11:
The Mayor of Jersey City says it never happened, but he’s probably a Muslim collaborator in the pocket of the ISIS caliphate who committed coitus with Osama Bin Laden, because that’s the only way he’d disagree with el Trumpo.
Either @realDonaldTrump has memory issues or willfully distorts the truth, either of which should be concerning for the Republican Party

From CBS New York:
…there is no evidence of mass celebrations by Muslims in Jersey City, which sits right across the Hudson River from Lower Manhattan.
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop says Trump is “plain wrong” and is politicizing an emotionally charged issue.
“No one in Jersey City cheered on September 11th,” Fulop said in a statement. “Trump needs to understand that Jersey City will not be part of his hate campaign.”
Is this a possible explanation?
Donald Trump just confused the West Bank for New Jersey. No biggie.

He’s been pressed on it this morning and he has kept insisting that he saw them do it. Maybe he knows something we don’t. Oh hell, who cares, his followers will swear they saw it too.

I’m surprised the bloodthirsty Muslims in Jersey City haven’t ripped down this 9/11 memorial with their bare hands!!!

Or maybe they have, and el Trumpo saw it with his own eyes, and his followers will confirm it, and I’m totally wrong and a paid Rubio hack.
Can anyone provide evidence of this event happening? I tried to exonerate el Trumpo but all my Mexy powers of investigation couldn’t find a shred of proof.
UPDATE: I posted this at the Right Scoop and the angry Trump-humpers sent me this from PowerLine Blog:
In Jersey City, within hours of two jetliners’ plowing into the World Trade Center, law enforcement authorities detained and questioned a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river.
So it looks like el Trumpo exaggerated his claim, but something like it did happen. I’m getting a lot of people attacking me on Twitter saying they all saw it on TV. Well sorry folks, that’s not evidence. There are way too many people who are willing to lie, or just have bad memories. As Trump has proven.
