Wait, Did Donald Trump Seriously Just Say “7-11” Instead of 9/11?

Not a whole lot of commentary is necessary here. Can a man who confuses the greatest terror attack in US history with a chain of convenience stores really be taken seriously about understanding “New York values?” Is disgracing the deaths of more than 3000 Americans by comparing them to a place to buy cigarettes and Icees a “New York value?” Perhaps the voters of New York will make a statement today on what they think of Donald Trump’s values.

Here is a full transcript of the above video, taken at a Buffalo, NY rally on April 17th:
“I think what I want to do, I want to talk just for a second, I wrote this out and it’s very close to my heart because I was down there. And I watched our police and our firemen down at 7-11, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I have ever seen in action. I saw the bravest people I’ve ever seen, including the construction workers, including every person down there. That’s what New York values about(sic). So I wrote out a little something. And I’d like to talk about the New York values that we all know so well. The values that make us love this state, despite its problems, we love this state, we know it’s gonna come back. If I’m President it’s gonna come back so fast you won’t even believe it. You watch.”
